Women Hungering for Miracles

Women Hungering for Miracles

I took this photo today at the grave of the Zviller Rebbe which draws thousands of people hungry for miracles every Monday and Thursday.
Looking at all these candles, I thought of all the infinite yearning that went into them.
A candle lit by a woman yearning to become a mother.
Another candle lit by a woman yearning to have peace in her home.
Another candle lit by a woman yearning for physical health.
Another candle lit by a girl yearning for happiness.
Another candle (mine) lit with yearning for a daughter to find her husband.
A Niagara Falls of yearning. A universe of yearning.
Many years ago I heard Rabbanit Yemima explain that that’s how it is for us women. Always waiting. Always yearning.
So many candles, so many prayers, so many yearning woman (lighting those candles and reading this now) begging to receive salvation from Hashem’s overflowing hand. May it be soon.
