Mosh3, I am inspired by your betochen and outlook on life. May you continue be a source of chizuk for many people and may hashem help you to have a life of simcha and health.
My spouse is involved in a specific support group. She is always looking for poems and articles about children. (raising children, spending time with children, being a mom etc.)
If you have anything about this topic(sweet, funny, or inspirational) please post, I will greatly appreciate it.
You always hear the usual stories of pennies on the sidewalk being good luck, gifts from angels, etc. This is the first time I’ve ever heard this twist on the story. Gives you something to think about.
Several years ago, a friend of mine was invited to spend the weekend at his employer’s home. My friend, Michael was nervous about the weekend. The boss was very wealthy, with a fine home on the waterway, and cars costing more than his house.
The first day and evening went well and Michael was delighted to have this rare glimpse into how the very wealthy live. His employer was quite generous as a host and took him to the finest restaurants for dinner. Michael knew he would never have the opportunity to indulge in this kind of extravagance again so he was enjoying himself immensely.
As the two of them were about to enter an exclusive restaurant that evening, the boss was walking slightly ahead of Michael. He stopped suddenly, looking down on the pavement for a long, silent moment. Michael wondered, there was nothing on the ground except a single darkened penny that someone had dropped, and a few cigarette butts. Still silent, the man reached down and picked up the penny.
He held it up and smiled, then put it in his pocket as if he had found a great treasure. How absurd! What need did this man have for a single penny? Why would he even take the time to stop and pick it up?
Throughout dinner, the entire scene nagged at him. Finally, he could stand it no longer. He casually mentioned that his daughter once had a coin collection, and asked if the penny he had found had been of some value. A smile crept across the man’s face as he reached into his pocket for the penny and held it out for Michael to see.
He had seen many pennies before! What was the point of this?
‘Look at it.’ He said. ‘Read what it says.’ Michael read the words” United States of America “
“No, not that; read further.” “One cent?”
“No, keep reading.” “In God we Trust?”
‘And if I trust in God, the name of Hashem is holy, even on a coin. Whenever I find a coin, I see that inscription.. It is written on every single United States coin, but we never seem to notice it! Hashem drops a message right in front of me telling me to trust Him? Who am I to pass it by? When I see a coin, I stop to see if my trust IS in Hashem at that moment. I pick the coin up as a response to Hashem; that I do trust in Him. For a short time, at least, I cherish it as if it were gold.
When I was out shopping today, I found a penny on the sidewalk. I stopped and picked it up, and realized that I had been worrying and fretting in my mind about things I cannot change. I read the words, ‘In God We Trust,’ and had to laugh. Yes, Hashem, I get the message.
Thought for the Day:
Face it, friend – Hashem is crazy about you!
He sends you flowers every spring.
He sends you a sunrise every morning.
Read this line very slowly and let it sink in…
If Hashem brings you to it, He will bring you through it.
The day is coming to an end and we’ll all have delicious food to fast out. Yet, we shall not forgot that we are in golus and pray to hashem every day for moshiach. Next year we will imyertz hashem be able to say “A Freilichen Tisha B’Av”
You don’t have to to write a story. Any support you give can help lots of people that need it.
Hello Kitty is my childrens favorite character!! They always drive me nuts to buy them stuff from this character. I told them, I am Hello Kitty, so they’ll have it all the time…
That’s how my nickname became HELLO KITTY!
A family member was recently in hospital for a while. I couldnt believe how many organizations there are to help out the needy. It is amazing and a real zchus for all of us when Yiddishe Kinder help out each others even though we dont even know each others.
The person I am talking about is pretty young but has terrible eating habbits. He wants to look good and enjoy life. The problem is that everyone has diff. opinions about it. Some people say: NO, its the worst thing you can do to yourself. other people say: Yes, its the best thing I’ve ever done.
P.S. aries2756, ofcourse this is something that is being discussed with a doctor. But its good to hear experience from people because doctors wouldn’t say how many people are happy/unhappy that they did it.
BPTotty, thank you for your offer. I appreciate your concern. Do you really have experience in this matter? He already tried so many diets and spend lots of money but it did not last too long and went back to stage 1 after a while.
Which book is a good novel??
Is it worth spending so much time in the CR with 95 people? (Probably 50% of them are not even active members.)
sgroth, maybe this can be interesting for me. The last two weeks I am planning vacation and not getting to anything. Is the area a busy city or more quite?? I am looking for something with nice views and relaxing yet some exciting attractions to enjoy.
Thanks for your information. I need a small car and not too much mileage, just to go up to the catskills for weekends.
Dont force him out, the only thing that stays after 120 is torah and mitves.
Ronrsr, do you know anything about minyan in Bar Harbor? Also, how was your weekend in Vermont?
Maybe they closed it because there is a similar thread already. (Three Weeks & Music)
smart cookie, you can go to Jimminy Peak in MA it is 2.5 hours from NY and lots of fun. You can leave early morning and be back late afternoon.
if you want something smaller go to governors island in Manhattan it is very nice.
Thank You ronrsr, your information is very helpful. Can you tell me more about Bar Harbour? How far is it from NY? Where is a nice hotel to stay? What about minyan and shabbos?
Enjoy your Vermont vacation and I would love to hear about it since I am exploring all my options of vacation.
Thanks for your help.
We are all very concerned about your test so let us know if you passed it!! We hope to hear good news.
Does anyone have information about a vacation to Maine or Loon Mountain, NH? I am trying to find out which place is more reasonable and more fun!I would like to hear of a nice place to stay and attractions too.
I like nice 5 star hotels but when I tried to search on-line I couldnt find any special hotels. Most hotels I saw are 2 or 3 star rated and very uneventful. I dont take vacation that often so I would rather pay a bit to find something special. Can anyone help me??
Is this resort very special or should I try to find something nicer?
What other interesting attractions in the PA, poconos area??
What is the best attraction in that area?
If you fail your test try again. Most people dont make it the first time!!!
Does anyone have any suggestions about the poconos? minyan, attractions and a place to stay shabbos?
Yamaha is great, PSR-OR700 is a very good keyboard. I have it for a year and I am enjoying it greatly.
