The Hanukkah Letter

(As seen on

For Hanukkah '09, Alexa (at the age of eight) wrote me a beautiful letter as a gift. The words speak for themselves. :)

The journaling reads: Sometimes I think you are an adult trapped in a child’s body. You have such a way with words and a sensitivity to you that far exceeds your years. I am frequently blown away by all that you say and do and by the mature notes and cards you write to me and other people. This Hanukkah letter is just one example. I left everything exactly as you typed it so years from now you can see how you wrote and typed at age eight. I’m especially touched by the comment you made at the end about keeping the spiritual lights in my body burning. It’s not something most eight year olds know about or even think of. You are so special, amazing, and loved!

Pin It!
