Chanukah 1

Years ago I found an article in the Chicago Jewish News that laid out eight gifts for Chanukah, none of which cost a thing.  I don’t know the author;  I wish I did.  But for at least a decade, our children have heard one of these every night, in no particular order.  Sometimes it was the only gift they got, but even if there was something to unwrap, they got these gifts first.

Tonight, the gift of LOVE

This is the first thing. We love you. We will always love you. This is unconditional and non-negotiable.  Gibraltar may crumble, the Rockies may tumble, but we will love you forever and always, no matter what.

 

Chag orim sameach;  Happy Chanukah!

  1. Thanks. I printed this out for Hilary and Richard – and changed the pronoun from we to I on a copy for Anthony.
    Chag sameach – go easy on the donuts & latkes! (on second thoughts, have some for me and A)
