Your thoughts make me feel more connected...

to the rest of the world. Are we more socially and spiritually isolated by technology or do we just think we are?

Of course like the hot dogs... we all have to answer to a higher authority.

Keep up the nice work.

Food for thought

This is a hard one lori. If my friend said that about me, i would want to talk to her. If this is how she felt about me. Sometimes the truth hurts, or perhaps its not true and there was a misunderstanding, but the point is, it happened for a reason, and maybe just maybe, you and i dont know the whole story and its them 2 that have to work it out, with God in mind, in the same breath, i understand what this means for me, we should exercise caution when venting out about something, be honest about our feelings be true to yourself by going directly to the source, and tell that person whats bothering us or what went wrong what we did wrong, if we did wrong. Expecially when it is someone close to us. thanks lori,allways something to think about. we all do it, at sometime in our lives, but we should think not to and be more like our creator, in allways, allways.
Good food for thought!

What I found profoundly inspiring was that this person had the perseverance and fortitude to put off taking immediate action and defer her response until she'd had a chance to mull it over -- to sleep on it, if you will. Then beautiful heavenly thoughts and inspirations ensued. Thank you, Mrs Palatnik, for using your G-d given expressive talents in so constructive a way.

Be gebencht,

Lori, I think you're great. I watch you all the time. But I dont agree with every thing you say. I think someone can be your friend even if they say bad things about you behind your back. If she had the guts (which I dont have)she would tell her to her face. And if your friend ha the guts she would tell this person to her face how terrible it is to talk lashon hara. It pays to get things out in the open. Also, I think Jewish women are great but not all of them. And there are also some good Jewish men. In other words there are good and bad in every group which is not the impression you give some time. Keep up the great work.
