|My husband, Rabbi Jem|
(Day 2 of my series on Gratitude for the month of November)
The picture above is of the oldest rabbi of Israel (aka my husband Jem). He visited our Purim service, since he was in the area on a fishing vacation. Jem loves to "cut up" as we call it in the South. He is always coming up with jokes and mischief to make me and others laugh.
Laughter and joy are a big part of Judaism, and Jem loves to tell jokes at our services. Someone asked me, "Is he always like this?" I answered, "This is where he's MOST serious!" Oh, the stories I could tell of his shenanigans. He is delightful and wakes up happy every morning....and he doesn't even drink coffee!! (Unlike myself)
He brings so much joy to the nursing home where my mama lives. He brings jokes and stories and laughter to brighten their days, and everybody (staff included) loves to see him coming.
Laughter is so much a part of our life, and at our age, that's important. We folks in the Golden Years can tend to get focused on ourselves and our aches and pains, you know. Speaking of that, I read something this morning that I think will make you laugh, so enjoy!
