It’s been one of those weeks. One of those really hard weeks. Where life challenges you at every turn. Each bend in the road is a hairpin turn. No gently-curved paths. Just the sharp, jagged ones.

Things are difficult. And they are going to be difficult for a while. Which is why I am so grateful that Shabbos is never more than six days away. Shabbat Menucha (sabbath rest) is my anchor during the week. It is my guiding star. No matter how frustrating things can get…Shabbat is always around the corner.

God, thank you.

    Sorry to hear that you’re having a rough week. I think anticipating that the near future is going to be tough is worse than dealing with the present. Try to relax!

      Not so certain about that. Knowing that the going will be tough helps me prepare for it. Forewarned is forearmed!!

      had a 90 minute massage yesterday. helped 🙂

      Maybe not everything…but definitely a welcome respite. Without sounding egocentric, the music on Friday night really took me to a special place.

      As I knew it would…

    i hope that your shabbat was as rejuvenating as you’d hoped! the “separate from the rest of the week” time can be (should be?!) the breathe of difference! here’s to a happy monday!

      Even after a lifetime of Shabbat observance, I am still amazed at how palpable its power is.

    I am late to the party on this one but I know how you feel…my own son is 17 and is an Aspie. I know exactly what you mean. And I feel the exact same way.
