A Day Of Hope

Today is Gimmel Tammuz - the day, 20 years ago, that the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, a guiding light for so many, passed away.  Here's a thought for the day:

Tammuz 3, 5773 ·June 11, 2013

A true master of life never leaves this world
—he transcends it, but he is still within it.

He is still there to assist those who are bonded with him with blessing and advice, just as before, and even more so.
Even those who did not know him in his corporeal lifetime can still create with him an essential bond.
The only difference is in us:
Now we must work harder to connect.

In The Nick of Time

Anyone who reads this blog knows I love the "Hand of G-d" stories that happen to me.  I don't know if someone else experiencing what I experience would see the outcome as a sign of G-dliness, but truth is, I can't help it.

Like today.  My boss needed me to update our clinical care manual, but despite being ordered several weeks ago, it still hadn't arrived.  Quite frankly, I've been so busy doing my job that I hadn't notice, and failed to track the package.

Not to fear, my boss assured me.  She will copy it for me and all I have to do is update it for presentation and approval.  But guess what showed up in the 2 pm mail today?  The updated manual, of course.

On the very same day I needed it.  Now, if that wasn't G-d, who was it?
