A Mitzvah…

I love learning yiddish words.  I heard recently that a Mitzvah is a good deed.  The month of November is a special month for me, not only because it is my birthday month, but it is also a the month when my cancer went into remission.  This month I am celebrating 16 years of being cancer free.  My mitzvah this month is that I have just been hired to facilitate the Writing for Wellness class at the Lucy Curci cancer center at Eisenhower Hospital.  I have a feeling that this “mitzvah” will be more of a blessing to me then I will be to them.  I am looking forward to meeting my new group on Monday.

Today in your writing, where do you see the “mitzvah’s” in your life?
