Absolutely Perfect!

Of all the animated, instructed and over-dramatized details of Queen Esther's 'Big Moment' this little treatise rises to perfection.

Lately I've taken to finding the simplest things in creation to teach me again about truth, valour and stepping out of one's comfort to be a 'big moment' in fulfilling destiny. Several videos depicting animal rescues of humans - even from species considered a danger to ours (lions, tigers, bears, etc) - have refocused where the hand of G-d is working remarkably.

Esther's life and Mordechai's legacy bring back the faithful human element in a world where all too often we witness lately the ugliest exposures of one's soul and mind. Today feels like Purim got a beautiful reset in myself from the very simplicity of these two accounts I experienced.
