Thank You Hashem – Week 226

  • Walking to my car this morning I see a garbage truck pulled up right beside my car. I just missed getting out in time. I did not get nervous and as I walked to my car I passed my neighbor and said looks like I am stuck for a while. As I approached my car the garbage man was walking right behind my car, I smiled and said How ya doing, he nodded and acknowledged my greeting which is a milestone, he is usually a very grumpy bitter person. He then gets in the truck and does something I never saw in my life. He puts the truck in reverse and backs up allowing me the space to pull out my car and be on my way. The power of a simple nice greeting to someone. Thank you Hashem.


  • I have been reading and studying Tehillim in depth, and I thank Hashem for all of the help He has sent my way.  Since asking Hashem for help with my learning, I have found many wonderful websites and online shiurim that go into depth on Tehillim.  I also ordered an interlinear book of Tehillim that is amazing.  I carry it with me everywhere.  Thank You Hashem for always putting what I need in my path.  Thank You also for eyes to see the words, ears to hear the shiurim, and a mind and spirit to learn and feel the messages of Tehllim.  I love You Hashem.
  • Hodu la H-shem ki leolam Hasdo.  B”H my son had his first baby, my grandson and everybody is healthy. B’H the brit is going to be this week,(Rosh Chodesh-Wednesday) and I”H I’m going to be the Sandak.  H-shem showers us with kindnesses constantly and we should always be able to see them blatanty and tell Him thank you.
  • I was reminded of this old story this past week and thought it would nice to thank Hashem for his Hashgachat Pratit. Several years back our area had a major snow storm and everything was basically snowed in. There was about 3 feet of snow on the ground. My cousin was getting married that night and it was a great simcha for our family even though we had no idea if and how any of us would get there. (The wedding itself is a whole other story that has been written up in jewish magazines). I believe 2 or 3 other weddings that night were forced to be done in their houses. Anyway, approximately 2 or 3 pm this snowy stormy day of the wedding my cousin very matter of factly calls me and calmly asks if I have a shirt for him that he can wear to his wedding. I was like what did you say? and he calmly repeats his request. Now it was my turn to be the older mature cousin and give him a lecture. I tell him you wait until the afternoon of your wedding day to try and find a shirt for your wedding?!?!? Are you for real? never mind the craziness of this storm-as I am lecturing him I am staring out the window at the snow storm, in the middle of my speech I see a car service trudging some how thru the snow. I quickly say I gotta go!! and hang up- I see the phone number on the door of the car and I quickly call the car service and rushingly tell him please stop the car on Avenue…right away- I tell him please I have a shirt can he just drive it around the corner? He puts me on hold, comes back and says run down to the car right now he is waiting. Hashem has a plan and takes care of everything and my cousin showed me there is never a reason to panic. Just relax and don’t worry and everything falls into place. His attitude that he lives with is a Kidush Hashem.-Happy Anniversary
  • thank you Hashem, I bought a salad and I usually get big pieces of broccoli and this time they gave me small pieces and my jaws-tmj were hurting badly today and I wouldn’t have been able to bite the big pieces.
  • This may not seem like a big deal but to me it felt like a hug from Hashem. I’ve been trying to find a very warm winter coat for a while now but anything I liked was out of my budget. Today my mother in law came in from Brooklyn for my daughter’s play and says “honey I brought you a coat” I said oh Moshe told you I was looking for one? And she said no! It is so so warm and elegant! And best of all it was free! Thank you Hashem!
  • Thank you Hashem for always helping me out and for bringing my yeshuah!! I was going through a rough time and Hashem showed me how it’s all okay and how I’ll be fine!
  • I have another simcha to add.  My husband and I started a new business last year, and I do the accounting.  Well, I don’t really know what I am doing and am learning as I go.  I received an email from the Department of Revenue to contact them right away.  My first instinct was to ignore the email out of pure fright.  Instead, I closed my eyes, asked Hashem for help, and had complete Bitachon that He would find a solution.  I called them back, and it was just a general question and nothing, thank G-d, serious. Thank you Hashem for showing me yet again that good things come when I put complete trust in You.
  • Thank you Hashem for the amazing trip to Cleveland for a family wedding. We had some crazy weather on the way there and b”h made it after a really long driving. Thank you for getting us there and back safely.
  • I have a new appreciation for my microwave. The spring that latches the door closed broke & my family got a gentle reminder from Hashem how useful this appliance is & how often we use it. Thank You Hashem for the microwave & all the other appliances in the house!

  • I Had a confirmed order from a customer, so I send a PO to my vendor for the order. An hour later the customer canceled the order on me and now I was not able to cancel the PO from my vendor because if I did it would have ruined the relationship with him and would have caused a big problem.
  • My coworker was flipping out and but I told him don’t worry it will somehow work out for the best.
  • I kept calm looked up to Hashem and said Hashem you only do things that are for the best you never do anything to hurt us. You know I rely on you for everything please help me out here.

  • Thank you Hashem for the people in my life to lean on and support me when I’m feeling down. Thank you for giving me health and the fact that I can live on my own without machines or medicine.
  • A new office supply company approached me to purchase from them. I needed a new table in our office. I looked and found one that I liked and ordered it. Afterwards I realized it needed to be assembled and did not have anyone available to do it. The table would probably sit there until I paid someone a nice amount of money to come and do it. The delivery arrived and the driver starts opening the box, I ask what are you doing? He says we have a promotion that all new customers get free assembly and set up. Thank you Hashem
  • I had plans to go and eat by someone’s house for Shabbos. Last minute they tell me that they are going away for Shabbos. I said ok fine don’t worry about it. 10 minutes later a person that has invited me a few times, but I was unable to attend those times, contacts me and invites me for the meal. Within 10 minutes I had another Shabbos meal. Thank you Hashem

A smile costs nothing but gives much.
It enriches those who receive without making poorer those who give.
It takes but a moment, but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever.
None is so rich or mighty that he can get along without it,
And none is so poor that he can’t be made rich by it.
A smile creates happiness in the home,
Fosters goodwill in business, and is the countersign of friendship.
It brings rest to the weary, cheer to the discouraged,
Sunshine to the sad, and it is nature’s best antidote for trouble.
Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed or stolen,
For it is something that is of no value to anyone until it is given away.
Some people are too tired to give you a smile.
Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile as much as he who has no more to give.
Remember, a smile is a crooked line that sets it all straight.
