i've always always wanted a menorah....
i've looked at some, but they were always
really expensive. so when i got in the
hanukkah spirit, i'd just gather candles
together and light them.
josh found one when he was out the other
nite, and grabbed it for me.
i squealed with delight when he handed it
to me. and then dragged him out to see if
we could get candles at the grocery store
zakk whittled them down a bit for me, and
viola! i have a functioning menorah!!
josh and i immediately leapt into our
best hebrew attempts.
they were pitiful.
we laughed over how we both did it at the
same time and how weird it is how alike
we are sometimes.
that was last nite.....
but tonite......was mine. just me.
there was a moment of quiet here.
and it's dark.
so i went and lit it and sat with it.
it's so beautiful.
there's nothing quite like candle lite.
talk about sitting in the sacred.
i wonder how i've gotten along without
one all these years.
honoring of miracles.
sitting alone soaking in the sacred.
sometimes life is so incredibly good
i could just cry.
