Today my official, gorgeous hand washing cup arrived in the mail. I was so glad it did not come on the Sabbath, so I could actually sign for the package. Here it is in all its glory:
And here is the hand washing towel that goes with it. I've had the towel for a while (I got it last Hannukah), but I decided now was a good time to show it off again:
And here is a close-up shot of the embroidery on the towel. The Hebrew writing says "...on the lifting of the hands"; those words are the end of the blessing we say upon completing the ritual washing:
"Don't tell God how big your storm is; tell your storm how big your God is."
I believe in God.
I believe in God.

- I am a bipolar, Jewish young adult (had my Hebrew birthday, the one I count, and turned 23 this past January) who also suffers from Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy. I love life and I live for my best friends: they are my purpose and my reason for trying so hard. I remain passionately devoted to those I love; I will not let my disorders make me totally self-centered. I like to read, write, and sew. My Rabbinical school plans did not work out, and I am now hoping to go into the field of Early Childhood Education. Please note: I am currently maintaining only Carried in His Hands. Enjoy!
