Celebrate

In Sweetie Girl’s classroom holiday party, a Mom shared about her family’s tradition of celebrating Ramadan by demonstrating a henna application to the teacher’s hands. We’re lucky that we are part of a school that values different cultures. I also got in on the fun. The henna is on both hands, not just one. I just flipped one of the pictures to make the layout look more balanced. I especially love the design on my palm; notice how much darker it is than the other hand, even though they were applied at the same time. It’s supposed to last about one week, and I think I’ll miss it when it’s gone. This is a beautiful work of artistry, and even more so, the Mom who applied it free-handed it. It was so impressive to watch. I feel like I have a beautiful secret that I can quietly share with others when I want. Sweetie Girl is really excited to get her henna, when the Mom comes back to apply it to the kids.

However you and your loved ones celebrate, may you have a warm and wonderful gathering, surrounded by your friends and family.
