We saw the Jerusalem IMAX movie and visited the Dead Sea Scrolls. In the exhibit, we were able to write notes that would be sent to Jerusalem and put into the Western Wall. Grace wrote “I would like to thank God for blessing me with an amazing family and everything I need. Thank you God.” Whit wrote “I pray to God that the Bruins win the Stanley Cup.” Meet my children.
Whit dressed up as Indiana Jones and Grace as an “80s Valley Girl” for Halloween.
The four of us went to New Hampshire for homecoming at the high school I attended. It was both freezing and fun.
We spent one wonderful Saturday morning rock climbing as a family.
Our Christmas traditions swept us along in December: tree trimming, carols, cookie-baking, noticing things.
My favorite post: Catastrophe and beauty, loss and joy
My favorite quote (which is actually my favorite quote of the whole year):
“Wherever you turn your eyes the world can shine like transfiguration. . . . I think there must also be a prevenient courage that allows us to be brave – that is, to acknowledge that there is more beauty than our eyes can bear, that precious things have been put into our hands and to do nothing to honor them is to do great harm.”
