Rosh Hashanah Reflections

Rosh Hashanah Reflections

Rosh Hashanah—the new year,

yet time to reflect on the old year:

our successes and our failures;

what we have done,

and what we have left undone;

the things said that helped,

and the things said that hurt;

the things lost,

and the things found;

the joys we could hardly contain,

and the griefs we could hardly bear;

the smiles of congratulation,

and the hugs of compassion;

all the things deep within us,

and all the things we must share.
