This shabbat I am thankful.
I am thankful for having what I need.
I am thankful for simpleness.
Truly loving the warm sun on November 1st day.
Spending the time with family in the garden, digging in the dirt, helping new life to sprout.
I am thankful for my family that has spread out across the globe.
The splitting open and deseeding of a pomegranate.
With all the world’s troubles,
the sun has set, time to separate the worldly and the spiritual.
Let the day of rest wash over my soul and give me the fire to continue my journey.
