A Holiday Short Story

Family means everything to me and as every year goes by it seems more and more precious. To my husband, Mark, thank you for our home, our life and our children. And to our children (birth and in-law), thank you for your love and the memories you've enriched our lives with - I love you Jenni & Jason, and Marc & Trish.
The holidays are a time for nostalgia as well as revelry and spiritual re-awakening. I cherish the memories I have of lighting the menorah on my parents’ kitchen table and spinning the dreidel with my sister, Bobi. As the years have gone by and my children and nieces and nephews have grown and started their own nuclear families, our celebrations, often melded from different traditions, have grown even sweeter and more precious.
