Children Need You

 

Chosson and Kallah, I bless you….  Maybe some people bless you that you should always sleep at night.  I bless you that you should always be woken up by your children at night.  And I bless you that whenever your children are crying, you should say, “Master of the world, how could I ever thank You?  What a privilege that somebody needs me so late at night.” You know what is so beautiful about children?  They have nobody else, they just have you.  It’s so holy.  We bless you with the most beautiful children.  We bless you to be the absolutely most blissful husband and wife.  We bless you with everything: MAZAL TOV, MAZAL TOV, MAZAL TOV.

 

 

Training to be a Parent

 

I want you to know, Chosson, our holy Rabbis tell us why our three fathers and four mothers were called “fathers and mothers.”  There were a lot of fathers and mothers in the world.  So Chassidut says like this; Avraham Avinu, from the first moment of his life, was always training to be a father.  He had nothing else in his head.  He was thinking, “Ribbono Shel Olam [Master of the world], I want to have children who will be Your servants.”  And our mother Sara, from the moment she could think, all that she could think about, all that she was ever thinking about, was, “Ribbono Shel Olam, give me children, so I will be a good mother to them.”

 


The question is not how much you love each other.  The question is how much you love each other when you aren’t getting along with each other.

Daily Torah Quote

Joke of the day

poor man came to the house of an elderly couple. Unfortunately they had nothing in the house to give him except an old piece of fish “from before the time of Noah’s Ark and the flood.” Out of desperation, they served him this fish and the next thing they knew he had to be rushed to the hospital. The elderly couple, of course, accompanied him to the hospital but, unfortunately, watched him die in front of their eyes.

At the funeral the elderly woman was crying uncontrollably and her husband was having a hard time trying to console her. She was hysterically screaming, “The fish killed him, the fish killed him.”

The husband who couldn’t stand to see his wife in such a state comforted her and said, “My darling, it’s really not that bad. We had the merit of fulfilling three good deeds: Welcoming guests, visiting the sick, and escorting the deceased!”
