Hope everyone had, or is having, a good Rosh Hashanah, and that the Days of Awe are productive and meaningful for all of us.

Shanah Tovah!

Here's a story you'll hopefully enjoy.  I took my 5 year old with me to Temple yesterday, fo rthe children's service that runs concurrently with the adult service.  After their service, they broke up into smaller groups based on class year.  My son's class decorated tzedakah boxes.  When I picked him up, I asked what he made, and he said "a piggy bank!!"  So I explained that it was a tzedakah box, and the money was to go to charity to help people.  Later on when his Dad got home, he told his Dad all about his piggy bank for charity.  LOL.

Not when they're collecting money for charity, LOL!    I'll have to ask the Rabbi that  has a small daughter--he will get a kick out of the story, especially since he ran the children's service!

Last night we filled up our bag of food for the hungry.  Our temple collects food for the local soup kitchen on Yom Kippur.  My son had a ball putting in food.  "Mommy, I like macaroni and cheese, so I think the hungry people would want some too" as he puts it inthe bag.  It was so nice to see him so excited over this mitzvah!  He was reciting to his Dad all the food in the bag.

Additionally, we are making a large clothing donation to the Vietnam Veterans on Thursday.  They sent a postacrd in the mail saying they'd be coming around on Thursday.  At first I thought...I'm not doing that on Yom Kippur...but then I thought about it sme more and figured there's no better time than on Yom Kippur!

Yeah, we do that on YK too, I think it's a NIFTY activity, or SPORTY or whatever.  LOL.  Thanks for reminding me, I have to get that done tonight!

Hmm, I hate to admit, but mac and cheese sounds kind of yummy right now!  Comfort food I guess - it's been raining all day.
