Well, everybody here in South Florida says that summer is over. After living here for 20 years, I still can’t say that until after Labor Day even though I start my first day of school tomorrow and Hebrew Starts Sunday.
It has been a good, but interesting summer with ups and downs. Work issues have definitely affected the summer as well as my migraines, but I still appreciate the relaxation, and spending more time with Ron. We went away with some of the kids and grandkids to Orlando, and had the most wonderful time! I officiated a B’nai Mitzvah Ceremony in Colorado and Ron went with me. It was beautiful! The pictures are on Facebook. We saw old friends, and more old friends have moved here to South Florida that we are excited about.
I have been doing even more networking which I have always done, but I am reaching out even more which I feel at this point in my career is a necessity because, things are a change-in! I have been meeting some really great people!
I am now into my High Holiday music, sermons are written which will be published on my blog as well as social media after Yom Kippur.
For some reason, this year I concentrated on Hope and Happiness. Through social media, going out with friends, and my own thoughts and research, I feel that I have a couple of good sermons that will give congregants food for thought, and of course, I pray, Hope and Happiness! If you have any thoughts about how people can have Hope and how people can be Happy, please let me know. I could still add them to my sermons and unless you are a colleague, I do no not mention names.
More to come after a summer hiatus!
