My thoughts on the eve of Rosh Hashanah…..
Someone once told me that to live a life is just like to ride a train with different stops.
We all get on the train as soon as we are born and we keep riding it until the train has reached the final stop. We all have our own path, some of us are lucky not to hit any tunnels along the way and some of us are even luckier to get off the train and create a different path for themselves.
Rosh Hashanah literally means the head of the year and at the end of every year I have a desire to count my blessings and get ready for a new year , even though it’s not “real” New Year! In the eyes of our parents we are the best, we are all above average, this how my mom made me feel when I was growing up, and this is how I fee about my kids
So my first two blessings are my kids and my mom (I am very lucky to still have her with me).
My second blessing is my family, big or small we are together,…. and then finally my friends…
We are all taking the “life” ride together and no matter what happens on our journey, we still should be able to look forward on the eve of every Rosh Hashanah , count our blessings and spot something bright and spectacular, something that worth stopping the train for.
Happy and Healthy 5771!!!
