"Todah, Hashem"

I am grateful to G-d and I am grateful to people.

At this moment I am feeling well.  Thank G-d.  Thank you to everyone in my life.

Chovot HaLevavot writes that key of all spiritual matters is gratitude.

I am grateful that my meetings with parents of over 60 kids went well and made for a beautiful day of connection.

I'm glad that my Public Speaking class was surprisingly observed today and that the observer laughed out loud at the right moments during an exercise I had the kids do.  She thanked us for making her laugh and said the class was fabulous (or some such word).  And the class was grateful for another fun and educational lesson. It's amazing how quickly they learned and mastered the improv game we did.

The test I gave today went well.  One of the questions was about which sons of Aharon died.  One student pointed out to me quietly that in truth they all died - eventually.  Does he deserve extra credit? Maybe just a positive word home.

I am grateful for life, mine in particular.

It was kind of you to tell me and for that I am grateful.
