The air that I breathe ....

It is critical for life and is virtually the only thing left which is free

Good Health for me and my family

I lost 2 wives from cancer and i had cancer in my lip and cheek, so I appreciate good health all the way around. I lost a younger sister to septis and melanoma.

Our world

It seems we don't know the importance of our world that we are living in,every day we Mets things up, not knowing the value of our existence by destroying our life and the environment.

What did your wife, kids, grandkids and great grandchild do that you pray for G-d's forgiveness? :-) :-)

Circumstances of My Birth

I feel lucky that I was born in America, to two wonderful, good, morally decent parents, and that they had the good sense to send all of us children to Orthodox Jewish schools and that we kept a kosher home and otherwise grew up with a very strong sense of our Jewishness. All that i have said may sound rather ordinary, until one considers how it would have been, had I been born in some third world country, to unstable, abusive parents, and that I could have been raised to hate Jews and hate morality in general, as is the case for just about anybody born and raised in most of the countries in the Middle East.

G-D's support.

I'm grateful for - the many - many times - G-D - has answered my prayers - and supported - and or protected me - even though I wasn't aware. And I haven't always appreciated - what He's done.
I can say that - that includes me too - to many of the posts below as well - that He's done for me.

My husband

I'm married 44 years B"H. I have a very special husband. He's a very active member of Hatzolah. My Mother has Alzheimer's and she lives with us in the same apartment. My husband takes care of my Mom as much as I do or more. He works full time davens with minyan 3 times a day, learns with a chavrusa almost every weekday, attends Daf Yomi shiur at night, He does whatever needs to be done in our house, as well as anything our children need in their homes. He is always there for me in every area of our lives. I am truly blessed

God’s presence

The millions of little ways God reveals his presence that I don’t always notice or appreciate .

We should appreciate our blessings every day!!!

Gratitude should be a component of the majority of our thoughts on a regular basis. Sitting in the Sukkah should help that process. We too often are distracted from that.
