From Rabbi David
Last week I saw for the first time a banana flower. Morah Nirit, our gardening teacher brought it to show the kids. It was really cool to see and even more cool to learn how bananas grow from it.
Yesterday, I spent seven hours picking avocados at Kibbutz Be'eri. I learned that the bumpy ones are haas avocados and Europeans like those. Israelis prefer the smooth ones.
I've been reminded, these past two weeks, to appreciate simple things like banana flowers and bumpy or smooth avocados. When our world seems to complicated and our minds are too busy with big, important things - maybe we would do well to seek out a banana or avocado tree and remind ourselves of all the little things that are definitely worth being thankful for.
Wishing you and yours a Thanksgiving filled with goodness and gratitude.
