Saying goodbye to the holidays!
Sorry for the delay in posting! It has been absolutely crazy for the last few weeks. Besides preparing for the holidays for my family, shopping, cooking, cleaning, and do not forget tasting, I have been baby proofing the house for the visit of my grandson. We are so excited to have him come for Sukkot! However, he is at that age where everything looks interesting, especially the glass vases on the bottom of the china cabinet! He is a smart kid; he will find things I didn’t even think about to do that are dangerous.
Surprising to me is the fact that our Sukkah is still standing. Every year we dutifully build it with the expectation that it will stand all 8 days. And every year we are disappointed when the weather batters it to the ground. This year we were able to eat every meal in the Sukkah except for the first night when we were hit with torrential downpours. I am going to keep my fingers crossed for next year!
Now the holidays are winding down and we can finally get a few minutes to reflect on the meaning of this holiday season. When I looked around my table and saw the people who mean the most to me, I realized that all the stress and annoyances of the year fade away when you can enjoy time with those you love.
May all your prayers come true!
