Favorite Memories

One of my favorite Hanukkah memories is from a long-ago family skiing trip. (Disclaimer: I didn’t ski. I read and cooked.)

We brought our menorah and the tall, slender, blue-and-white candles that our daughter had brought home from Israel. In order to “share the miracle with the world,” we opened the drapes of the condo that overlooked the mountain. We then lit the candles and sang the blessings, the twinkling candlelight reflected in the massive floor-to-ceiling windows. The contrast of dark December night with the warmth of our family being together — beautiful!

What about you?

    I’ve been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.
