Double joy

In Jewish liturgy and literature the week-long holiday of Sukkot, which we are now in, is called Zman Simchateinu, meaning "the season of our joy" or "our time of celebration."

So let's have some joy (especially since yesterday's post was unhappy news).
Even just looking at pictures of my newest grandchild gives me great joy!
Libby loves to amuse herself by looking in the mirror.
This reflection is for James' Weekend Reflections.
The photo was taken by Naomi, my daughter, another great source of joy.
Hard to believe it was only two weeks ago that the two of them were here, visiting from far-off Australia. It seems more like two years ago.

Moadim lesimcha, happy Sukkot!

Love the bright red dress.
