It's been a very full week gone by - between Thanksgiving with friends and spending last weekend in Medfield for my 25th HS reunion. Great to see so many people, and especially the chance to spend some time together with certain longest-time friends (Big Dave, MCB, etc.) and dearest ones (Rick & Lauren). Added bonus to see my own brothers after too long.
And now, we welcome Hanukkah. The Festival of Lights begins tonight, and as if on cue, the snow started falling here in Michiana over the last several hours. It's gone from a mild fall to a surly winter in just more than 24 hours.
Anyway - Hanukkah, the minor holiday that we've jazzed up with lights, decorations and gift-giving, is really yet another chance to consider all of those things in life for which we're grateful - the warmth of family and friends, good stuff to eat and enjoy, and the meaningful (and fun) things that occupy our time. As you watch the glow of the Hanukkah candles this season, I hope you have the chance to reflect on all life's goodness.
CHAG URIM SAMEYACH - wishing you a very happy Hanukkah!
And all that jazz...
