A sweet new year
is what we wish for our household and yours. Rosh Hoshannah is for contemplation of the blessings of the old year and the beginning of introspection for the turning and reconciliations which will make the new year even sweeter. Liam in shul,swaying in the aisles, dancing to the music, clapping, resting under his Daddy's prayer shawl, hugging the rabbi, reaching joyfully for challah after the blessings is an inspiration and a delight. Co-housing with KK and Bob here is a little more complicated and also richer. Four adults with strong opinions coaching one young teen can be a little much at times. for us and for her. But the richness has got to outweigh the conflict.
