Be Thankful for Every Breath

The Midrash (Genesis Raba 14:11) says that with every single breath, we should express our gratitude to the Almighty.

Today, put aside two minutes and feel gratitude for "breath."

I love that BOOK! Gateway to Happiness I bought it 25 years ago. I also bought Love your Neighbor. I remember Rabbi Pliiskin said he had written it while riding on a bus from Ohio to somewhere. It changed my life and I am grateful that G-d gave him the ability to write books to lift people up and give them a direction to grow.Of course the books are old and beat up, that is how one knows a great book! Thank you Rabbi Pliskin and Aish for making those earlir books possible and Art Scroll for all the books that followed!
