at the Western Wall with Reb Gutman Locks on Mystical Paths


      I was standing at the Kotel feeling a bit down. I knew it was wrong to feel that way, but I just received some bad news, and it made me feel totally yucky.

     The cameraman on my current video that I am working on blew it. He did not adjust the microphone, and the sound did not come out! What a bummer. It has some great footage in it that I really wanted to share. But now it looks like it will not be seen by anyone because the viewers will not be able to understand what I am saying. What a drag (to put it mildly).

     My joy in doing the videos is thinking of the thousands of people who watch them and learn important Jewish lessons in an entertaining way. I love it. But this one died before it was seen by anyone. Again, forgive me for repeating myself but, total Yuck!

     Just then a man who was standing by me took his little son, Chaim, off his shoulders, and stood him on the ground. I had never seen them before. The little boy looked up at me, smiled, and then, out of the blue, he ran over and hugged my thigh. My heart melted. My yucky feeling completely disappeared. It felt like Hashem sent me this bundle of love to cheer me up, and it worked. What a gift! Love from G-d in the form of a tiny child hugging my leg. Thank You for Chaim.

   P.S. I have an idea that might work to save the video, too. :~)
