I can't hear it often enough

I don't know how it happens, but every time I hear it, it seems to be new. During a year, it often happenes that I think of my past, of things I should have done otherwise, And every time again I feel guilty and sad and am sure that I do not deserve, what Hashem does with me, gives me, allows me to do and I can have a close relationship with him. Then I hear you, even several times, and am glad and thankful!

I understand Aaron so well

In his place I would have felt exactly the way he did. But you teach me (what Moshe taught Aaron). In spite of everything behind you, feeling sadness about your past, you should walk forward, because thst's what Hashem wants from you... Thankyou for reminding me.
