The focus is the soaring height of the historical architecture and while there are crowds of people, deep in their individual prayers, they are connected in their faith and focus on the Western Wall of the 2nd temple in Jerusalem.  The second temple was finished in 516 BC and stands as a testament to religious freedom and survival for over 2,500 years.

From excavations in the Jewish Quarter, walkways and columns, as well as stalls and other evidence of daily life, were discovered dating back to the 6th century AD.  The “Cardo” was the main street in ancient Roman cities.  The Cardo still stands as a piece of history where people can see what architecture and life was like historically.  The history and ancient buildings draw in the eye as people walk by on cobblestones thousands of years old.

Jerusalem stands as the home and birthplace for three religions.  It welcomes all pilgrims and those who seek to appreciate its beauty and historical significance.

there comes a time to be happy

It is harder to tell ourselves the things we can rationally understand, but struggle to fulfill.  Yet, we would tell a friend that while we cannot avoid anxiety and stress, good times and bad, or unfulfilled dreams or relationships, there are no wrong answers or half packages.  One choice brings another, and another, and whatever happens, you can survive because you are stronger than the pain you have endured and committed to finding joy on your own terms.

Surround yourself with people and ideas that make you smile.  It takes strength and great amounts of energy to persevere despite it all.  But you can, one step at a time, whenever you feel ready to proceed.   You can do this.

When it comes to sweet, it generally involves children or dessert.  Our families are important to us and building loyalty and responsibility for one another begins by being taught those values in the home from an early age.

My husband and I have loved this photo from the moment we saw it.  My twin grandsons, who were three years old at the time, were taking a walk down the street with their parents.  Sibling love and support, when it exists, is something I consider to be sweet and to be cherished.
