Light instead of Darkness

First of all I want to thank all my readers (especially my son-in-law, who relates to me as a son) who commented and emailed me with empathy and support. Those comments and the care went a long way to improving my matzav ruach. As someone said, I hit a 'rough patch' and I shouldn't give up. I will not.

Just a quick note before Shabbat, as I didn't want to leave my blog sitting there with such a gloomy post (see, sometimes husbands are right: when he read it he told me I shouldn't have posted it...but only sometimes!)

I am so happy that my older son is engaged to marry a wonderful girl whom the whole family (all his siblings) love (just like my younger son's wife!). I am so looking forward to returning to Israel in the spring for the wedding, but again, it's going to be a family oriented trip, and not a sightseeing one.

One of my readers said that we should emphasize the positive, and she is right; dwelling on the negative never helps, and only clouds the whole picture. So I thank G-d for all the blessings He has visited upon me.

My eldest daughter is a fantastic entrepreneur, married to a wonderful man and has three great chilren; her brother, my older son, just started a new job (which G-d willing will turn into a career) and just got engaged to a great girl from Ashdod; his younger brother achieved Tank Crew Commander in the IDF, and just married a great girl from Yerushalayim; his younger sister (Toodles) who designed the logos for his wedding invitations and benchers-she is so talented-just returned to Israel and is back in college studying for her B.B.A. she is currently working on designs for her older brother's invitations; her younger sister - my baby - is a chayelet mitztayenet in her combat engineering unit in the IDF.

I am so blessed with wonderful children and I am so proud of them. The rest, should just fall into place, b'ezrat Hashem and b'sha'ah tovah.

Again, thank you so much for being there: You are who make this blog!

Shabbat Shalom to you all!
