The other night, I was sitting on the beach by the Delaware Bay in Lewes, DE simply watching the sunset and the people there to share it with me. Two moms and their little guys had been to a playdate and were walking towards the car at the end of the evening. All of a sudden, this is what I saw! If I had been feeling peaceful prior to that with the beauty of God's gift of the sunset, this brought total joy and possibilities to my heart! Another gift!!! This interaction was definitely one of those "Teachable Moments" I am often referring to but in this case, no one had to tell them to 'be nice to your friend' or give your buddy a hug good-bye. It just happened and I was blessed to be there to see it as you are blessed that I am sharing this beautiful spontaneous moment with you. Sitting in synagogue a few days later for Rosh Hoshanah services, the rabbi asked what we might wish for in the coming year (5771) on many levels. These two guys are a vision of my wish for everyone to be kind to one another and for there to be more peace and understanding in the world! Happy New Year!!!
