Reflection

If you don’t like religious stuff – stop reading now, and wait for the next blog. 🙂

For all my Jewish readers – Happy Rosh Hashanah. For those of you who don’t understand what that means, it means Happy New Year. Sundown tonight begins the Jewish New Year.

What I have been striving to do in the last several days is to make amends. It’s a Jewish tradition. At this time of year, we ask forgiveness from our friends and family, or anyone else we might have offended in the last year. On Yom Kippur, our day of atonement, we ask G-d to forgive us. Thus we enter the new year with open minds and clean hearts.

I have spent the last several days reconnecting with some old friends with whom I have had missed connections in the last year. I could feel my mother prodding me to resolve the issues.

Some people I was unable to connect with, some people did not want to resolve missed connections.

I am grateful for all that I have been given today, and I try to feel that way every day.

May peace be within your heart, from my home to yours. Happy New Year.
