A candle is a small thing. But one candle can light another. And see how its own light increases, as a candle gives its own flame to the other. You are such a light.
— Moshe David
Duff here. Hannukah began last Sunday at sundown. Mom and I have many Good Friends who are Jewish. We have often celebrated their Holiday and Now want to honor Them. As the Story goes, a small Quantity of oil was all that was available to light The Temple’s Menorah. Amazingly, there was Enough Oil in that Tiny vessel to continue burning for eight Days. A True Miracle! To observe the Event in today’s Times, Gifts are exchanged and parties Thrown for an entire Week plus a Day. My goodness. That’s really Living Unstuck.
And Games are such fun at These Parties. One involves a Dreidel, a Top with four sides. Depending on which Side is Facing Up at the End of The Spin, Players win, lose or forfeit a turn. You already know Mom has Fumble Fingers, as You have observed at times from her Typing Skills for Me. She practiced and Practiced “The Spin” as I cheered Her on. But She couldn’t get the hang of it. Definitely not living unstuck. But She laughed when Playing and had a great Time Any way. Took Her good times with Her, She did.
Do You have Friends who are Jewish? I say: Help Them revere the Occasion and wish Them A happy Hanukkah. They will appreciate Your Thoughtfulness and may even Share the History of that Time with You. My Friends did with Mom and Me, and We have long Cherished it. Happy Hanukkah! #unstuck-living#happy-hanukkah
