Sweet on Valentines

When I was thinking about writing this entry, I found myself reminiscing about my childhood Valentines. Like many others, in my early grades at school we used to make Valentines with construction paper, doilies, glitter, glue, ribbon, and yarn. We used coloring pencils and crayons to write our poetry, compliments, and Valentine’s Day good wishes. […]

Gratitude in Community and Friendship

I’m going to confess something here.  I’m a horrible procrastinator.  Truly, if you want something done, the best way to get it done (by me), is to give it to me about an hour before it needs to be done.  It’s not something I’m proud of, but at least I’m self-aware, right?  Now, after ten […]

Merry Merry!

 

I’ll be honest.  This is my favorite time of year.  Why?  I think the answer to that question has evolved as I’ve gotten older.  As a kid, it meant that Hanukkah and then Santa.  It meant presents, candy, caroling, and winter break.  Of course, I wrote thank you notes for my gifts, but as kids […]

Happiest of Happy Hanukkah’s!

Growing up, we celebrated Hannukah AND Christmas.  As a kid, this meant more of everything– more presents, more treats, more festivities!

As an adult, I realize that the good fortune did not lay in the STUFF that came out of it, but rather, in the experience.  While I was learning about Catholicism and christian ideology, I was […]
