Some In The Moment Blogging
5:20 PM - The end of the day bell is ringing. I have a good amount of work to do, guidance related. Emails. And and and. i can't let myself leave work now, as my work is not done. And when i get home it is not done. I'm waiting on an email tonight relating to a student regarding tomorrow.
I am pausing for a minute. Catching my breath. Similar to what I told advised a stressed out student to do just about an hour ago.
I am grateful to G-d for all that I have in my life. There are no words. Chasdei Hashem- as a friend of mine likes to say with an aw shucks shrug, as he genuinely expresses joyful gratitude for all G-d has blessed him with.
This blog boggles my mind, almost like life itself. I've been writing here for 9 years plus. There's a lot here. There's a picture of a chunk of a life, my life. I hope if you read what i write here that you find it meaningful.
I am going to write two important work letters now, please G-d. And will check in again later.
10:49 PM - Wrote those letters, took two busses and a cab home (didn't walk from the station because my toe's really hurting). Got an email from a student that just realized that a recommendation must be submitted tonight. Wrote and sent that. Another student vented to me at the end of the day and I spent some time on that here at the home office. Got a lot of work emails. Dealt with them. Had dinner and a good talk with a former (is there such a thing) student.
11:21 PM - This world is compared to a beautiful hall and also to darkness. Which is it? Both. This world is beautiful. yet covered in darkness. With a Torah life we illuminate the world and reveal its beauty.
Good night and G-d bless.
