Happy Hanukkah! 

 

Hanukkah is bringing light into houses and hearts around the world. The light that we are celebrating is much more than just physical. The light is a beam we can direct towards the things we choose to see, and it’s in our hands to direct it towards the good things!

 

Hanukkah is a great opportunity to focus on the light and ponder over all the wonderful things that bring light into our lives.  This year, I am thrilled to share with you something that I do with my family during this special holiday. Soon, when we are all gathered around a table filled with latkes and dreidels, we will sing songs with our loved ones and every candle we ignite, will be for us a light we choose to cast over an important thing in our lives, and share it with the people we hold dear: 

 

First Candle: It is time to cast a light on our accomplishments.

 

Second Candle: It’s important to cast a light on the process, and not just the result. 

 

Third Candle: We will remember to cast a light on someone we care about and yet haven’t connected with for a while. 

 

Fourth Candle: We will try to ignite others with our enthusiasm. 

 

Fifth Candle: We will cast a light on our opportunities to simply be and celebrate together.

 

Sixth Candle: We will make sure to put a light on the voices that others are sounding.

 

Seventh Candle: We will give a green light to things we’ve been holding back.

 

Eighth Candle: We will voice new ideas and thoughts and have them see light

 

 

 

Wishing you all a happy and de-LIGHT-ful Hanukkah,

 

With gratitude and appreciation,

 

Shoshi.
