Thank You Hashem – Week 176

  • Thankful for Hashem’s light. It’s time for a tune-up with taking care of myself and inspiring my family to do the same.
  • thank you Hashem for giving us amazing people in the world that would come up with such a great way to share you glory and miracles with everyone.
  • Thank You HaShem for everything that I never thanked You for and for everything that I did thank You again and again!
  • I was driving in an area that had a lot of Jewish simcha halls and noticed how all the parking lots were full. I want to thank Hashem for sending so many beautiful simachot our way.
  • Thank you Hashem for helping me find a job!
  • We are taught that the small things are what make us great. I was at a supermarket in Lakewood and didn’t take a wagon. I grabbed a few things in my arms and headed for the cashier. There was a long line. The man in front of me saw me holding my stuff and flips down the child seat at the front of his wagon and says, here, please put your stuff down you don’t have to hold it. Mi Kiamecha Yisrael. Thank you Hashem for our wonderful people always caring for each other.
  • Thank you Hashem for putting me in the right place at the right time.
  • Was able to encourage someone repeating one of the stories from the Thank you Hashem email- Thank you Hashem for siyata dishmaya.
  • I was on a  2 way street waiting to make a left turn. There was oncoming traffic so I waited until it was safe. In my rear view mirror I see a gigantic truck speeding up extremely fast so he can make the light before it changes. He was headed straight for the back of my car at full speed!!! If I pull up I would be going head on into oncoming traffic, a Varsity bus no less! I had to react- I quickly started to pull up slowly crossing into the oncoming bus hoping he would see me. Baruch Hashem he was able to slide over just enough so that this foolish truck driver didn’t hit me and cause me to crash into a bus. Thank you Hashem for this protection.
  • I was able to help out someone in making a simcha. I am sending this in because someone commented about how great it is to help out for a happy occasion and I jumped in and did it and feel great about it. I want to thank Hashem because after doing this, Hashem sent me a great happy occasion of our own to celebrate with my family. I somehow feel it is Hashems way of rewarding me. Thank you so much Hashem.
  • Thank you Hashem for letting me experience nachat from my family.
  • (after i told this incident to the Rav involved his idea was to publicize it) A friend of mine had sent me an email of a very inspiring story to read. I was very moved by it and immediately added it to our Parasha weekly emailing. One thought came to mind, that Rabbi Morgenstern in Israel sends me his Parsha Pearls to send out and sometimes includes a story for me to attach. I was thinking I do not want to insult him chas vishalom and send this story and not his if he includes one. I was deciding what to do and in the mean time I said I will wait for his email, who knows maybe he will not include a story for this week at all. His email arrives and I open it anxiously waiting to see if he has a story attached and lo and behold, I see the word story. I say to myself, uh oh- I really wanted to send out the story I set up already it is an awesome story. I said maybe I will send his separately in the morning but realized he is in Israel and it will be shabbat already for him. Finally I snapped out of it and said what are you thinking, we don’t insult or hurt peoples feelings. I go and open his story to put it in and was shocked. IT WAS THE SAME EXACT STORY!! What were the odds of this? The Rabbi is in Israel and I am in NY. How many zillions of stories are there in the world and we “ Happen” to have the same exact story . Hashem took care of this without there even being anything to be taken care of. Thank you Hashem.
  • Thank you Hashem for our Surprise Shabbat guests.
  • Had brit milah to attend this week . Mabruk.
  • My cousin made a wedding –Mazal Tov to all-may they build a bayit neeman biyisrael.
  • Thank you Hashem for these parashas showing us your hand clearly in having Yosef Hasadik appointed king. All that had to transpire for Yosef to end up where he did is amazing.We are reminded of this in our times seeing all that transpired in order for our president to be elected. Clearly Hashems hand for all to see.

Thank You Hashem – Week 175

  • From Mitzvah Man – I posted on our facebook account that we were having a Chanukah Party for senior citizens. I asked for volunteers to donate money for some gifts for the senior citizens, like gloves, scarfs etc… I got a response right away from someone saying here is my credit card please charge me $100 and get some gifts for the senior citizens. The next day I post a message that we have 2 autistic children that have never been to a Basketball game and if someone would like to donate 2 Knick tickets please reply. The same guy replies right away and says, here is my credit card number go and get any seats that you like. He continues and tells me, I am a chiropractor and I have been having a very hard time with the insurance companies getting paid. I have been doing a lot of work and not seeing any payments. This problem has been very difficult and has been going on for months already. Yesterday as soon as I replied to you to get the gifts for the senior citizens, the very next email I opened up was from the insurance company saying they are sending me a check for $150,000! . He continues and says, Hashem is great and WANTS to give us, he sometimes waits for us to take the first step.  Happy Chanukah
  • Wedding last night and Bris the next morning. Mabruk.
  • Thank you Hashem for the beautiful hag of hanuka and all that it symbolizes. Thank you for always being with us, helping us and protecting us. Thank you hashem for my wedding anniversary. Having my husband and family each day is a beracha that I cannot thank you enough for!
  • Thank You H-shem for giving us the holiday of Hanukkah were we sit around with our families lighting the candles admiring and praising You for saving us from the Greeks against all odds and for saving us time after time from Esav up to today.  Also gives us time to reflect upon the millions of miracles that happen to us everyday. Hanukkah its a “Thanksgiving” holiday Thank you for enjoying it together with the family, having a roof over our head comfortably.
  • Thank you Hashem that I was able to help out a family that was going to be without their father for an extended amount of time.
  • Thank YOU Hashem for a safe trip with my family
  • Thank you Hashem for this beautiful holiday of lights!
  • I got a big paper cut during work then it became freezing so I put on a sweater and even gloves. A little after I put on the gloves I was taking a big pile of papers and somehow it went against my finger AGAIN. If I wasn’t wearing gloves I would’ve gotten a HUGE cut. THANK YOU HASHEM for letting it be freezing and for making me wear gloves and letting me get one cut for kappara.
  • Wow , had a very hectic schedule at work today and needed to leave early. One of the things on my list just took care of itself on its own. I had to call and put in an order for a customer that I had on hold waiting to ship out today. I get an email from the distributor with a confirmation for the order and shipping confirmation. Thank you Hashem.
  • A chanukah miracle and miracles surround us all the time. I was at a certain super market. I was very short on money at the time and struggling. All of a sudden I get a text from a friend who knew my situation. He tells me that he has a credit that I can use on his account at the super market in case I am short on money right now. To please just go to the register and give his telephone number. I say wow I am in the supermarket right now thinking what to do and you send me this thoughtful and caring  text. I say ok and ask which supermarket I should go to. He replies and it is the exact store that I am standing in!. Thank you Hashem for making this special bond between our people. The outside world can not understand it. The great thing is, is that this friend knows I would do the same thing for him and Have done it for several others. Thank you to this friend and most of all to you Hashem.
