Things That Make Me Happy - 8/22

Is this better?




Here is a picture of the whole table just for a little size perspective:

the middle letter looks like a mem, not the "s" letter (which i'm forgetting the name of). The "s" letter is much more round. if I weren't out of the country i'd find a text with the word in it for you...Assuming, of course, you still want it to say hesed and not precious!

but you're getting close...and it's going to look awesome!

just checked the b.d.b. and yes, you're close. just round the bottom a bit more. you are very close though. yay!

When I was in seminary, my friend and I discussed quite seriously whether it was worth investing in the BDB rather than a cheaper, less comprehensive lexicon the seminary bookstore had in stock. We finally decided it was worth it because even if we didn't keep up with our Hebrew, at least we could use the BDB as a doorstop.

Tattoo design is not one of the uses for the BDB I would have ever imagined.

Hey WS, why don't you look it up online at the Blue Letter Bible?

I think this will link you exactly to the image you need:

I do think your middle letter looks a little more like a "mem" which is more triangular than the "samekh".

Enjoy getting a tat!

Totally brilliant idea for a tattoo and wonderful, perfect word for this time in your life. And I, like another commenter who I'm too lazy to go and find, love that you label the tattoo entries "self care".

Self care indeed! Let me know if you want someone to hold your hand or share a beer before this lovely tattoo ends up on your body.

Ever since soccer superstar David Beckham and his ex-Spice-Girl-Posh wife, Victoria, begain sporting Hebrew tattoos a couple of years ago -- complete with gaffes -- Hebrew tattoos have become all the rage. That means many websites have sprung up to provide Hebrew lettering and graphic images, including this one, which will translate any phrase into Hebrew and provide the appropriate artwork. Might be something to check out.

BTW, needless to say (I hope...but I will anyway): I have no connection to the Beckhams or to any Hebrew tattoo sites. :-)

Oh my. This is getting to be very exciting. If I were 15 years younger....

putting a spanner in the works - or a word of caution - but one commenter writes "perfect word for this time in your life." and that's the truth. But life will go on - and are you sure (100%plus!) that you want that on you forever.

Taking off that ring a couple of months ago hurt so much - and still does -but removing a tattoo is painful too!

Forgive me, but I had to say it.

It's your body and your life, but make sure you are sure - ok ?

in love, Lorna
