Today has been one of the *worst* days. I have felt hopeless and exhausted and hurt. I have also been surrounded by the loving prayers and thoughts of some incredible friends, and blessed by all of the beauty in life and the simple joy of childhood. I had said that we would have a screen-free Hannukah, but hey ho, life sometimes has other plans and I have such a need of these spaces when life is trying.
The bad: please pray for my husband, all is not well with him right now.
Putting pebbles from our holiday into the display box at the museum.
A beautiful shawl pin bought with my birthday money.
Hannukah lights for the first night (oh, and donuts too).
Just... enough... light.
