  1. Thank you so much, really enjoyed this. I also notice that certain things that would have made me crazy years ago, now, I just sit back and think “OK, I need to handle this now, Hashem help me”. Not all the time though! 😉 But my middos muscles have had a work out.

  2. I can’t believe u didn’t get mad at your daughter for leaving her clarinet!! I would have been so angry… how do u deal with anger (or do you have none so it seems haha)

    • she has clarinet every week and this is the 3rd time she’s forgotten it all fall. To me, that feels pretty responsible. Also, this is the only time I’ve had to bring the clarinet to her school, the other times I handed it to her teacher as she drove by on her way to the school. If I’d had to bring it 3 times I also would have been angry!

  3. Well that’s still impressive!
    Btw forgot to mention (and not to make u self conscious or anything but I thought something deep….)
    Every now and then you say the word “zehu” which I know means that’s it. But listening to the word and breaking it down also sounds like ze hu- this is HIM (HaShem) it’s all HASHEM! – and I feel like that is totally your outlook and connection to HaShem
    It’s all from him ein od milvado
    I love it

  4. YES! You have touched ours hearts once again, Chana Jenny. You are exactly right. This is why it is written, that those who find refuge in Hashem, go from “strength to strength”. Not from “trial to trial” – because Hashem is WITH US in every situation, strengthening us in our struggles.
