#BlogElul 8: Believe
I believe in breakfast at any time of the day.
I believe in letting children choose their own clothes.
I believe in fresh air whenever possible.
I believe in ice cream at any time of day.
I believe in giggles.
I believe in stories, all kinds of stories.
I believe in early morning yoga stretches.
I believe in good solid hugs.
I believe in comfy pajamas.
I believe in naps.
I believe in holding hands.
I believe in love in the darkest of places.
What do you believe in?
The Jewish month of Elul, which precedes the High Holy Days, is traditionally a time of renewal and reflection. It offers a chance for spiritual preparation for the Days of Awe. It is traditional to begin one’s preparation for the High Holy Days during this month with the Selichot, the prayers of forgiveness. We look to begin the year with a clean slate, starting anew, refreshed. All month, along with others, I'll be blogging a thought or two for each day to help with the month of preparation... I will be blogging here, and sharing #Elulgram photos on the same themes at imabima.tumblr.com. Follow me on twitter @imabima for all the #BlogElul posts, not only mine but others' as well!
