Thank You Hashem for not making me a goy. Early this morning I was walking to my car in order to go to shul. There was a garbage truck a couple of houses before my house so I started to walk quickly to my car so I would not be stuck behind the truck. The driver saw this and he purposely speeded up and stopped right in front of my car so I could not get out. Only a goy can go and make extra effort in order to be mean. Our Jewish nation is much greater and we go and make effort in order to good, to do massim tovim for people. Ps I made it to shul on time. Hashem is great.
Thank you Hashem for my beautiful and healthy children
A storm is raging outside now. Inside – all is warm – we have heat, electricity, food, etc. Thank you Hashem!
Thank you Hashem for a beautiful shidduch that happened with a member of the community last week.
Thank you Hashem for my job. It is the perfect place for me. I learn so much and am reminded of what’s the real purpose and real truth and real pleasure in life.Thank you Hashem for always guiding me and helping me. Always with me and my family. I love you, Hashem.
For me the greatest Simcha is knowing that even though I am going thru a difficult time right now,at the appropriate moment I will be able to look back and thank Hashem for it. We don’t always understand the darkness but we have been saved enough times to know that it’s for our good and one day we will appreciate the pain as what changed and saved us.
The moment of childbirth is incredibly painful but there is no greater moment of happiness in creation!
Thank You HaShem for letting me not go on winter vacation because I know that everything is for the best- thank You that at least I have a house to live in to begin with and for health and every single single thing! I love You!!!
Thank you Hashem for special moments in my life. Like today when I stopped from my work day and surprised my son by picking him up from school for lunch. We had a very special time. Thank you Hashem
Thank You Hashem for the rain this week. It’s been a long time since we’ve been in a drought situation & looks like there will be no issues this year either! Even California, which has been suffering from drought status for a while is getting plenty of rain.
Thank You Hashem for electricity. & that we did not have any outages during the storms this week. What a convenience we all have with electricity & running water on a regular basis, with no issues. In this day & age, most of us have standard luxuries that are even better than what kings had years ago. Thank You Hashem!!!
EIN OD MILVADO- An uncommon occurrence. I received a camera ticket in the mail that also had a late fee of 25 dollar on it. I paid the fine but sent in a dispute of the late fee being this was the first we heard of this. I was about to just pay it thinking why waste time they never dismiss these things but said ein od milvado, our job in life is to try and Hashem sends the results. Baruch Hashem got an email confirmation this morning showing that they have dismissed it. Thank you Hashem.
Baruch Hashem I was zoche to help someone in finding a job.
archive by request.. -Thank you Hashem for showing me the difference of the way a Jew does a chesed and a goy does a chesed. While in the hospital on shabbat and the goya nurse was telling me and my mother how they are bringing in an emergency cardiac arrest patient. I thought she was going to tell us how she feels bad or how she is going to help or whatever, but she did not. She tells us how she can’t believe this is happening that it is 630pm and she goes home at 7pm that now she will have to hook the patient up to all the machines and do all the paperwork. She was carrying on and on how she is supposed to be off at 7 and now she is stuck with all the paper work and I couldn’t hold myself back and I told her; When you are getting nervous while doing your paperwork I have an idea for you that may help, stop and think would you rather be the one in the bed with cardiac arrest, or the one doing the paperwork?…she immediately changed her tune and started telling us we are right and that she knows their is G-d in the world and she hopes he lets her into heaven and she went on how we are so nice and how nice we are treating all the hospital workers, so a kidush Hashem also came out of it. We were also able to see the wonderful chesed the Jewish people were doing in the middle of their personal shabbat time, stopping everything willingly and happily ,coming to the hospital with bags and bags of food,magazines,drinks you name it. Saw alot of chesed being done by the Jewish people with the correct attitude. Mi kiamcha Yisrael.
A Rabbi in our community, – when his father passed away young (age 49) he had a younger brother that was 6 yrs old at the time and so he and his sisters took care of him. When it came time for this younger brother to get married they would put their funds together to help him with everything. The morning after he got engaged, he came home to find a check in the mail for close to $30k just what they needed for this brother to get married…..it was a check from a claim that they made when he was young and fell and hurt his arm and the lawyer said then……don’t rely on this, you’ll most likely never collect! So 12yrs later when he got engaged and needed it most, Hashem sent it, because Hashem needed to take this boys father so Hashem becomes the orphans father! Thank you Hashem
