346/365: first night

Chanukah is early this year, which is a wonderful thing for us. We celebrate everything, including two December birthdays, and the more it's all spread out the better :-) We had latkes for dinner. They were delicious. I think I finally have the recipe down.

 

I am doing Tracey Clark's Picture the Holidays for the month of December. Today's prompt was Holding On to Gratitude. Seeing as I just finished a month of gratitude, I have to say I groaned a little. But here goes...

 

Today I am grateful for the symbolism of light. Light symbolizes many things, but to me it mainly symbolizes hope. I have never fully understood how important hope is in every moment of our lives until I experienced, this year, someone very close to me lose all hope. I am looking forward to this December as a month of light and hope.

Oh, and Holly just reminded me:

The #reverb10 prompt of the day is: One Word.

"Encapsulate the year 2010 in one word. Explain why you’re choosing that word. Now, imagine it’s one year from today, what would you like the word to be that captures 2011 for you?"

 

Well, I'm going to say "hope." Because that's about all I had. I hope 2011's word will be "healing."

 

I am not sure I will do the #reverb10 project all the way through, but I'm going to give it a shot.
