This letter brings out a very strong point. parents have to support their childrens choices of shidduchim. shidduchim is a time to find a partner that matches. period. Its not a time to change a persons choices and hashkafos so that they can marry someone that will please your neighbors.
one purim a family came to give us mishloach manos, they were all dressed as beggers and their mishloach manos was a brown paper bag that consisted a bottle of water and 2 slices of bread. (an idea for anyone looking to save money this purim 🙂
valuing precious time. ( time equals life- use it wisely, and dont waste it on shtusim in the coffee room)
my suggestion: if you spend (for example) everyday 20 minutes on the coffee, cut it down to 10, and use those extra 10 minuted on chesed, tefillah,…..etc… you decide 🙂
if and idea comes to your head, suggest it. dont be embarrassed, and dont procrastinat.
trust me, its a big chesed.
