Beautiful Boy

 

Beautiful Boy

 

Beautiful Boy

Out on the ocean sailing away,
I can hardly wait,
To see you to come of age,
But I guess we’ll both,
Just have to be patient,
Yes it’s a long way to go,
But in the meantime,

Before you cross the street,
Take my hand,
Life is just what happens to you,
While your busy making other plans,

Beautiful, Beautiful, beautiful,
Beautiful Boy – John Lennon

{this moment} ~ A Friday ritual. A single photo – no words – capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. If you’re inspired to do the same, leave a link to your ‘moment’  at Soulemama  for all to find and see.

One of the pleasures of operating a family business is being able to allow the little folks to help out. It gives them a great sense of ownership and pride. They take special care to make sure that everything is handled properly, and they learn from an early age, in a very particular way, that work and prayer go hand in hand. Yesterday, Jo helped Cat to get a large order ready for one of best customers (and friends).

Hanukkah

Every year, we choose a night to celebrate Hanukkah, generally the first or last evening.  We decided that, since Hanukkah ends on Christmas Eve, a really busy night for clergy families, that the first night was it.  This year, it also happened to coincide with one of Brian’s rare commuting days.  So we ate very late and didn’t have time for our customary dreidel game.

We did have a wonderful meal, and by the time it was over, it was the fourth night of Hanukkah.  The menorah had lit itself!  The first candle leaned over to light the second, the second lit the third, and the third lit the fourth – our own Hanukkah miracle.

So we will play dreidel tonight.  If you hear loud, happy noises coming from the farm, you’ll know why.

Happy Hanukkah everyone!

Stopping By Woods

Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening

Whose woods these are I think I know.   
His house is in the village though;   
He will not see me stopping here   
To watch his woods fill up with snow.   
My little horse must think it queer   
To stop without a farmhouse near   
Between the woods and frozen lake   
The darkest evening of the year.   
He gives his harness bells a shake   
To ask if there is some mistake.   
The only other sound’s the sweep   
Of easy wind and downy flake.   
The woods are lovely, dark and deep,   
But I have promises to keep,   
And miles to go before I sleep,   
And miles to go before I sleep.   – Robert Frost
