#BlogElul: My Elul To-Do List

In no particular order, these are things I'd like to do, continue to do, or strive to do better during Elul:

  1. Read for 20-30 minutes each night.
  2. Send a few "just because" greeting cards.
  3. Continue to rendezvous with my "treadmill buddies" at 6 a.m. three mornings each week.   
  4. Continue to pray for my sister, just as Moses did for his: "O God, pray heal her!"
  5. Write regularly.
  6. Treat a friend to coffee.
  7. Be patient, especially with my dad.
  8. Speak my mind.
  9. Explore my city.
  10. Ask good questions.

What's on your Elul to-do list?

Inspired by Ima on (and off) the Bima, this #BlogElul post is one in a series marking the days of the Hebrew month of Elul, which precedes the Jewish High Holidays and traditionally serves as a time of reflection and spiritual preparation for the new year.
