It's good to pause for a moment and appreciate...thank you Hashem!
Thank G-d, I have two little daughters just a year apart. As I was preparing for Shabbos, the older one came to chat. She sat down next to me and asked, "Do I
have to wear shoes tonight?" A bit of an odd question, so I asked, "Why?" ... "Well", she answered, "I hid my Shabbos shoes and my Shabbos tights in the closet. See, if I put them in my cubby, my sister will come and take my tights when she can't find her own, and see, she can never find her own. So if I put them out for tonight, I won't have them for shul (synagogue) tomorrow."
Hmm, I thought, serious dilemma. The only answer I had was, "Wow, that sounds tough, you know, I never had a little sister who took my tights." She seemed satisfied with that.
