Count the Omer: Days 26 & 27

Day 26: Hod sheb'Netzach, Gratitude within Ambition
If someone has given you a leg up toward you goals, don't forget to thank them and return the favor.

Day 27: Yesod sheb'Netzach, Foundation within Ambition
How do you define yourself? What is the foundation upon which you build your ambitions? I am a wife, a sister, a daughter, a Jew, a Cubs fan, and a Lincoln enthusiast, among other things. I am passionate about religious engagement, public memory (museums), and education. These things are my foundation and the way that I connect with the world and those around me. These are the things that have defined who I am and they will inform my decisions as I begin to build a family and a career.
