Thank You Hashem Week 205

- Grateful for life each and every day. It gets hard to see that with the hum-drum of normalcy - B"H!!!! - but alas that is the greatest gift! Last week, I was driving over the train tracks near my home at night. As I was crossing I saw a flood of light coming, but didn't think much of it and continued crossing. Just as I got over i, the train rolled over the intersection. Hashem saved me! The warning lights didn't activate until the train was at the intersection and I leave up to your imagination where I would be if not for the Hand of Hashem who guides and watches closely each and every day. I love you so much, Hashem! Can't be grateful enough! And I cannot wait until that day when the world is filled with so much light and every single living thing in this world recognizes Your hand, Your love, Your Malchus. May it be now. Please.

- I was driving home last week from Long Island. I was the passenger and my coworker was the driver. We were on the belt parkway driving with no traffic. He was going to drop me off at home but when I realized that it was almost 9pm so I asked him if he can just drop me off at shul so I don't miss the shiur. A minute later, I was texting my wife to let her know I won't be coming home and that I'm going straight to learn and all of a sudden the driver says oh no and when I looked up all I saw were brake lights coming at me at 60 miles an hour. We were in the left lane and if anyone knows the belt for the most part there is no shoulder to the left; all you have is the median. I braced myself for a strong impact. The driver swerved to the left, since the right had oncoming traffic and we came to a full stop. The front bumper of our car was right at the drivers door of the car in front of us. I couldn't believe it, we didn't hit not the median and not the car in front of us. We literally had an inch on either side. I had to ask him did we hit anything and he said no. There was no room to pull to the left. Hashem gave us an open Nes and made the road wider so we can stop safely, not to mention he stopped our car in a way I didn't think we could since we were going 55-60 miles on the belt. We are always told that when someone is doing a mitzva no harm can come his way. I think we see that so clear from this story. Thank you Hashem for saving us and for always watching over us and keeping all of us safe. 

-Thank you Hashem for helping us find the right tenants to rent our house to. Thank you for making everything fall into place and for making sure that there isn't a gap between the old tenants moving out and the new ones moving in. 

- Thank you Hashem for giving me a voice and a place to voice my concerns. I was able to give tzedakah today and it was greatly and kindly appreciated. I am so excited to be part of this journal. Thank you.

- Thank you Hashem! We were in a house in the country for shabbos and asked someone if they know of a ride and they said they’re leaving right now and I could come. They had exactly place for me and my friend and were going exactly right where we needed. What hashgacha!

-My father crashed our car and baruch Hashem everyone was fine!

-Had a little scare; my 8 month old was dehydrated and had to take him to the ER. They hooked him up 2 IV and we had to keep him there overnight but thank you Hashem that he is healthy and back home!

-Freezers play a tremendous role in my business and one of them just blew! Just a few minutes later it started to work again, out of nowhere. Thank you Hashem!

-Thank you Hashem for giving us our tsarot so we can turn to you and pray full heartedly and create a better connection with you.
