Thank You Hashem – Week 168

  • THANK YOU HASHEM for the blessing of our 53rd wedding anniversary,NOV.10th, and more THANKS for our Children,Grand children, and Great grand children!


  • Thank you HaShem for being the King of kings and presidents.  I’m writing this before elections and I really couldn’t care less about who wins because it’s HaShem who picks the rulers end of story. THANK YOU HASHEM for controlling that and everything else. We don’t have anything to worry about because everything is for our best. May Mashiach take over all the presidents and rulers very soon BzH.
  • This week, as I was leaving my house, I somehow missed the first step and fell down about five cement stairs landing flat on the floor. I must thank Hashem that as I fell I did not hit my head. Luckily for the rubber mats (used to diminish risk of slipping on ice in the winter) had been placed and when I reached the bottom, I did not hit the cement, rather I fell on the mat. Barouch Hashem, I came out with only a cracked bone in my arm, a sprain in the wrist and a big bruise on my leg.  It could have been a lot worse had I fallen on the cement directly or had I fallen differently. Anything could have happened. I could have hurt my head, scraped my face, injured my back, broken some bones…. But B’H I got off lucky!! I also feel the need to thank Hashem for all the other days in my life where I could use both my hands and arms normally. One has no idea how hard it is to only be able to use one arm/hand instead of two!
  • Thank you Hashem for letting me enjoy a shining moment of my 8 year old son. He was struggling as he was very thirsty before going to sleep on yom kippur night and really wanted to drink water. He managed to trick the yeser hara and managed to push it off and fast until the next day. Thank you Hashem.
  • Thank you Hashem for what seems like a bad day – to know what a good day feels like. For bringing us to a new shul, where the Rabbi is inspiring & a cool person
  • Thank you Hashem for a beautiful simcha of a friend last night.
  • I was buying an article of clothing in a store. As I was approaching the line to pay I figured I would google the item. Baruch Hashem the first item that popped up showed me the same exact item on sale for HALF THE PRICE. Thank you Hashem.
  • Thank you Hashem for all the good people that I can work with everyday.
  • Thank you Hashem for perfect parking spots in a place that’s hard to find.
  • Thank you Hashem for everything! I love you Hashem!
  • Thank you Hashem for letting us see the kidush Hashem in this election. How you made yourself visible on the night of the elections and- Nahaphochu – how you switched everything that the world thought was going to happen. We saw Hillary with a gala party planned but never got off the ground and turned into a somber gathering. All were worried that Trump would not say the proper things when he lost but instead we saw Hillary hiding like a baby and sending message to “go home and go to sleep” thru a third person. Hashem was running all the events this night for our benefit and was hidden until he let us see it unfold in front of our eyes. Ein Od Milvado – Ein lanu melech ela ata! Hashem we have no king other than you!- How lucky we are that Hashem runs the world. Thank you Hashem.
  • Thank You HaShem for….everything!
  • Thank you Hashem for letting Donald Trump become our new President !
  • Thank you Hashem for saving us from that wicked witch Hillary Clinton. Chasdei Hashem
  • I was about to make a small purchase online but for some reason got side tracked. I ended up going out on an errand. I thought to myself why did I do that? I hope I don’t forget to buy it later. I returned back and saw I just received an email from the place I was buying from for $15 off. Thank you Hashem for delaying my purchase and saving me $15.

  • I went a couple of weeks ago to get a suit at a local retailer who was having a clearance sale. (Mind you my budget doesn’t allow this purchase but my job needs it). Anyway I tried on all the suits and none fit except for one company called “Jack Victor”. Fits me like a glove – gorgeous. How much I asked, “Those are not on sale, sorry those are Jack Victors man, $595.00 a suit” ok so I left. I give a class in the city twice a week so Tuesday my wife came with me. She said lets go into Lord and Taylor for a few minutes before your class. So we went to the 10th floor and there are signs, clearance 60% off on all Jack Victor – also enjoy another 20% off and then another 15% off today only And free shipping each suit came out to $150 bucks for the same exact suit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you Hashem!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Thank you Hashem for my teeth
  • I saw Rabbi Brog one morning standing still on the sidewalk looking up into the sky, I ran over to say shalom alechem good morning and of course he greeted me with that zillion dollar smile, I said to him if you don’t mind me asking, what are you doing, what are you looking at? He said oh, I was just looking at those roof workers (picture the scene, roof workers on a slanted roof of a house in Brooklyn with no protective net or anything, a sneeze or breeze and who knows?) was just staring at those workers and saying THANK YOU HASHEM that I don’t have to do such a thing. (Keep in mind he was stopped in his tracks middle of block with his head angled upward for many minutes thanking Hashem) – Thank you Hashem for letting me witness this…
  • thank you Hashem for Rabbi Gedalya Trenk  and our special relationship and also the siyata dishmaya in how we met, we were learning masechet succah one summer, our first spending in Lakewood and my friend Robert Beida went to the book shelf at Ateres Ashaya to get a masechet succah and was looking on the shelves for one, at the same time Rabbi Trenk was there looking for a gemara as well and (not sue who asked who) asked what masechet are you looking for and answered masechet succah, Rabbi Trenk with his warm smile said I am also learning masechet succah- and we started to learn it together ,started learning at nights together, having seuda shelisheet together speaking all year round on the phone together, sharing much torah together and enjoying a special friendship with this HAPPY walking Kiddush Hashem, what can I say-to know him is to love him…Hashem should bless Rabbi Trenk with everything wonderful.
  • One night in Brooklyn, my grandfather suddenly felt a heart attack coming on and before it actually kicked in quickly told my grandmother to hurry and call Hatzalah, he then collapsed- having a massive heart attack. Within 20 seconds!! Hatzalah was in their home and had a defibrillator and was able to use it and save my grandfather. What was the hatzalah volunteer doing there? He “happened” to be visiting his parents on his way to Boston 2 doors down from my grandparents and “happened” to have his Hatzalah radio and defibrillator with him.
  • Was going to buy a laptop so I can use it a remote office site during the summer, my friend happened to have an extra laptop being he just got a new one and gave me the old one-Thank you Hashem and “friend”!- my printer was on the fritz and was about to buy a new printer from staples and stopped off at this same friend on the way, he had just opened up a new printer and asked me if I know anyone who can take the awesome older printer from him, that it is a color laser and works great and is in excellent condition and wants to make sure it doesn’t go to waste- that was hello to my new color laser printer-Thank you Hashem and “friend”…Hashem always provides for us at the perfect time.
