Happy Hanukkah

Lit menorah at Philadelphia airport
It has been a crazy couple of weeks with work and travel and I forgot to send a special holiday post out to you and yours around the Hanukkah holiday season. While traveling recently a smile was brought to my face when I saw at my home airport a lit menorah as a centerpiece.

My apologies. Since tonight is the last night of the holiday, I feel I have some reprieve.

First, I wanted you to know that it means a great deal to me that you have been on this journey with me for Mommy's Point of View, and appreciate your candor, feedback and perspectives, and continued support.

Therefore, today I want to share with you some Haiku to commemorate this celebratory time of year, a reminder of our freedom, and what has been done for us in yesteryear.

Happy Chanukah
Thanks Macabees for freedom
Tzedakah, help others

Eight days and eight nights
The candles flicker and glow
Spinning the dreidel

Happy Hanukkah
Time with friends and family
Festival of lights

Menorah, candles
Holiday of lights goes on

Potato latkes
Applesauce or sour cream
and chocolate gelt

Smiles all around
Watching kids open presents
Wrapping paper strewn

Hugging children tight
Thanking G-d for their presence
Life's most precious gift

Happy Chanukah to you and yours!!!
