Hanukkah Sameach!

This is the promise – even in 2021,
the oil will last …
it will be more expensive,
it may be disappointing
because the pandemic is not past.

But that was not the promise.

The promise was – enough.
Your oil will last long enough,
your lights will burn brightly enough
and you will remember who needs
a warm plate of latkes.

You will play dreidel with a child
and you will laugh,
because nun, gimel, he, and shin
are not about winning and losing,
but reminding everyone,

“A great miracle happened there.”

And reminding yourself,
there will be so many small miracles
if only you notice them.
