'way before Purim, Mordechai was a tzaddik

I was thinking today that Mordechai laid the groundwork for national salvation by taking in an orphan and raising her to be who she was. Sometimes we parents get distracted by all the day-to-day difficulties with our children, but we can be encouraged that the miracle of Purim started with raising Hadassah. :)

That's what it's all about.

Ken, ken, ken...ve'ken tihyeh lanu.
That's what it's all about.
Thank you for pointing it out.
Purim Sameach!

Out of the mouth of babes!

Talking about Mordechai, last year on the day before Purim, my grandson, all of 6 years old, who lives in another city, called me up to wish my a Happy Purim. I told him that my favorite holiday was Purim. When he asked me why, I responded saying that my first name is Mordechai. There was a pause on the phone and then he said: "You're a tzaddik!" (His rebbe (Hebrew teacher) obviously taught him that about the Biblical Mordechai haTzaddik). He went on to say that I don't have to wear a costume because I'm already Mordechai! "Out of the mouth of babes!"
