Knowing it is a test 50%, knowing we can pass 40%, knowing there is reward 5%, learning from the past 4%. I dont know about the other 1%

Whenyour home is not your home

At home I don't use the cell phone on Shabbat. Yet now I'm living with my daughter to help her with her 4 month old baby. She is not Shomer Shabbat.I had hoped she would become closer to G-d as a new mother. And she has started lighting Shabbat candles, but otherwise Shabbat is just another day of the weekend. While I want to make myself available to help her . I've started answering her calls on Shabbat on my way home from Shull. I feel uncomfortable about it and I feel that Shabbat is slipping away from me. I've just decided to tell her how I feel so she will understand that it is G-d's will not my will, a quote from you. Thank you for your help Lori.

That's exactly how I feel about the so called hardships. Once I give in, it's gonna make me feel terrible afterwards. Totally not worth it. I love this video, it's full of energy & good spirit. Thanks!
