Happy Hanukkah

Growing up I was very aware of my various ethnicity's. Although we were pretty much raised Catholic, we were exposed to Dad's family and their Jewish customs too. When Dad was well I can remember going to many holiday dinners with family we didn't see again until his funeral. Although we really didn't comprehend the whole miracle of Hanukkah, we still celebrated by lighting the menorah and exchanging gifts.

Tonight although Dad wasn't with us in body, I could feel him in spirit as Gabby lit her Grandpa's menorah and we shared a few laughs. Hopefully the next 7 nights will be just as pleasant. Happy Hanukkah Daddy. I love you!
