Memories of Deaf Blessings

For many of my young years we spent the Jewish holidays at my aunt's house in New York. My mom's dad, Nathan, became deaf as young man due to a high fever. He worked for the NY Times as a typesetter and could read quite well. He would read passover each year then hide the matzoh for us kids to find. Please see the additional photos below.

Assignment

As Thanksgiving approaches, we thought it would be a good idea to count our blessings! Look around. What is a blessing in your life? What are you grateful for? In shooting an idea, and not a "thing" you need to think more outside the box! Some quick ideas to get the noggin working: A birthday blessing, a blessing in disguise, or a "Bless you!" after hearing a sneeze!  You can shoot Something that implies the word "blessing"; A religious slant on the word blessing; Something that is a blessing for you in your life (aka something that makes you happy or grateful for); Someone blessing another person; Anything else that you can think of :)
