    I understand Rav Nossan Tzvi Finkel, Z’tl, who suffered terribly from Parkinson’s, would say these words with tears in his eyes.

    every time i speak to someone there i silently pray for the siyata dishmaya to say the right thing whether its during an english lesson or helping a guy deal with some problems. one wrong word and he could be lost forever. my personal opinion is that what happens at our place is pikuach nefesh and therefore my words could potentially hold the power to give life or take life away. one wrong word and i could set off a chain of events that leads to an overdose chas v’shalom. its terrifying. baruch hashem ive been matzliach so far i think, but all i can do is pray as hard as possible that it continues like that.

    i sometimes find myself smiling and laughing at the words that come out of my mouth because i know they arent mine and that i could never in a million years have thought of them myself. all my writing, all my teaching, every time i have any conversation in hashkafah…any time i open my mouth in any meaningful way im amazed at what comes out because i know that the words are not my own and that i can claim no credit for them.

    Talk about waxing philosophical. This is no regular can of lemon Pledge you are using here. lol

    Seriously, thank you for your inspiring posts; to be thoughtful and purposeful.

    I am sure the people you are working with could not be in better hands.

    soliek – I have always felt that way about those words. I know it will take a while to change me, so I ask Hashem to speak for me while I am still learning what to say.

    (paragraph break)

    One particularly bad, hard year I was asked to run a new camp program. I decided I couldn’t handle it. I told the person standing next to me that I dread making this call to the director. I called the director and said “no” but the word “Yes” came out. I KNOW my lips formed “NO”. Either way, there is where I met my husband (after 6 years of looking) Hashem does good ventriloquism when we need it/let Him.
