Although, winter is still very present (for those on the east coast and some days on the west), vacation has passed.
Baruch Hashem we enjoyed a wonderful family vacation in Seattle once again. Comparing pictures this year from last, was a huge change. Benny now has color in face, golden curls on his head and a body that is B”H healed with nothing foreign on the inside or out.
While on vacation, I received a text from a friend to please Daven for her baby who got a rare infection as a result of strep and is now in the NICU. It has now been 13 nights that Menachem Moshe and his mommy have been in the hospital. I have trouble sleeping at night just thinking about them, knowing what it is like to sleep (or lack of it) in a hospital, the pain, the worry, the physical discomfort, the sound of the machines beeping all night, or the irregularity of the beeping which cause panic, the noise of the door opening and closing by the nurses to check on the baby throughout the night, the worry that goes thru a mothers mind about her 5 other children at home and their needs and the list goes on.
Menachem Moshe Ben Chana Gittel is in need of our Tefillos. An extra kapitol (chapter) a day of Tehillim (psalms), Kavana (concentration) on the Bracha of Asher Yatzor (that is so powerful, especially with children), Challah, bringing in Shabbos a few minutes early, or even just talking to Hashem and asking for a Refuah Shlema when your stuck at a red light!
I am by no means a preacher, but, I do know what a huge comfort it is, to have people who care for and Daven for my child. The support brings hope and strength.
Let us stand behind these Cholim and their families and be a support, a life line.
Let us hear B’sorus Tovos (even before this post gets to your inbox) baby Moishe is taking steps forward on the right direction and IY”H will have a complete Refuah Shlema.
Let us continue to be Mispallel to hear good news from Eretz Yisroel in the Refuos of Chaim Michael Shlomo ben Michal and Refael Yitzchak Isaac by Michal and all of Cholim in Klal Yisroel.
