Rebbetzin Faige Twerski: I Was Disappointed I Missed My Granddaughter’s Wedding because of Corona, but Then…

Since I first heard this class, I’ve been thinking a lot about how Rebbetzin Twerski reframed and overcame her disappointment over missing her beloved great-granddaughter’s wedding. I’ve been thinking of it when I start feeling sorry for myself about the current situation, and all the ways it seems to be making my life so much harder (i.e., cleaning for Pesach without a cleaning lady, potentially months of homeschooling ahead, having to cancel my son’s bar mitzvah in May).
Instead of feeling disappointed, I am trying to remember, like Rebbetzin Twerski, that Hashem created human beings in order to להטיב, to do good for us.
