Even if your mother had taken thalidomide and you had become a thalidomide baby how to you know that HaShem could meet this challenge of the pharmaceutical corporation only apologizing for their mistake years later by HaShem as a loving compassionate G-d getting you to rise to the challenge and doing something more wonderful in life than you have done so far and have been less blessed as a result of not having become a gifted thalidomide baby blessed to have some stumps perhaps and show that your soul still was able to make your body hold because HaShem is holy.

Or premature babies who have lived their entire lives unable to bond with their mothers and with themselves thus anyone else. The despair of such loneliness! And yet, baruch Hashem, "the soul was able to make your body hold because Hashem is holy."

Thank you

Dear Rabbi Shraga, Thank you so much for this sharing. It’s so true what you wrote about the near misses in life and the things that could have happened. Makes me truly grateful for the many things that I in my human weakness and blindness have failed to see/understand. Also your last two sentences really touched me; “But I do have my own set of challenges. And I embrace them, knowing that my life is closely guided by a loving and caring G_d.”
