Imagine my delight, when I turned my computer on today and found that my google alerts had found dozens of blogs with the word mitzvah in it. I clicked on one of the blogs and read that NaBloPoMo -National Blog Posting Month has chosen the theme of Mitzvahs for their December inspiration. NaBloPoMO helps people blog more often by providing moral support, inspiration, and the camaraderie that only marathon blogging can provide. They also encourage people to blog daily. My intention is not to get back to daily blogging, especially since most of my daily writing time is now spent preparing my book on the 1000 mitzvah project. I am fairly content now posting once or twice a week, but I didn’t want to miss the opportunity to officially blog again about mitzvahs. So I am joining the party.
Mitzvah for the day: I attended a “celebration of life” for a friend’s recently deceased mother. Due to the timing, I had to bring my son along after school. It was a lovely informal service and allowed me a chance to learn more about my friend’s mother whom I had only met once. My son of course enjoyed the refreshments!
