One day I burned dinner badly. I have beenso frustrated lately, as I approach the third moth off work after hitting myhead slipping in the shower. As I was crying, I heard G-d saying to me.
I gave you a gift
I have since reflected on these simplewords. And how they can be applied to many chapters of my life.
He has given me gifts I have squandered.Health. Money. Time.
He has given me the gifts of parents, 3adult children, and a husband of 25 years. Not all of these have been happytimes. My children are certainly a blessing, as is my husband. My parents –well they are what made me what I am, genetically and historically.
Many experiences I have had over the yearsI have come to realize later on were a well wrapped gift. It was just hard tosee at the time.
