Knock Knock, Anyone home?

Being a mother to teenagers, and to preteens, I sometimes get the feeling that there is “nobody home”. Especially when I want them for something, like taking out the garbage…like taking out the garbage during Chodesh Irgun. Forget it! Both figuratively and literally there is no one home. Having said that I have to add that I am truly blessed to be raising wonderful and caring children who volunteer their time, energy and effort for youth. Chodesh Irgun is something that I will never fully understand. I have however come to accept that for the next 16 years of my life this time of the year I will just have to throw out the garbage myself.

Here’s to week 3 of Chodesh Irgun at the Shono’s. Illustration credits go to Aviva Cohen. Thank you, Aviva, for bringing the Shono’s to light!
