Ever have those kind of chats?
Hey, were you in my house last night? 🙂
It happens to dads too?
I was kidding, but anyhow, where there’s a dad, often there’s a mom also.
Rabbi Miller ztz”l said that we have alot to learn from those well paid saleswomen with their ever-so-sweet $200/hr smile voices. He said that we’re too paid from Above to put on those acts when talking to spouses / children.
Being too under-the-weather to be “busy” gave me time to enjoy and appreciate the kiddies even more.Thanks,Hashem.
