"When you're in jail, a good friend will be trying to bail you out. A best friend will be in the cell next to you saying, 'Damn, that was fun'."
— Groucho Marx
Watching my wife Karen breathe.
I know this sounds corny, but when my wife is happy I'm happy.
Life...just thinking about it brings me joy everyday!
Knowing I am lovedyesterday, today and tomorrow...
hearing my children laugh
Incredibly corny, but it's true: Playing with my kids. Seeing the sun set. Saying Ashrei. Eating an unusual food.
Ivdu ess Hashem b'Simcha!!
Seeing my children around the Shabbos table.
My partner, my friends, the change of seasons, life in general.
Kids, nature, books, wine, whisky, er...Not busting my ass over HH, certainly.
Robert,A love like that is rare and precious.TRS,Not corny, beautiful.Nilu,That is great and is it should be.lphop,That sort of love is precious. Hold on to it.Phyllis,A child's laughter has incredible power and healing qualities.TRH,Not corny, important. Those are the things that keep us going.Yechezekel,Always.WBM,There is something nice about that. I always love the look on my kids faces after we finish blessing them.Rachel,Does London have seasons, I thought it was just rain and fog. ;) Those are good things. Anytime you can take pleasure out of life it is important.Snoopy,Wine and whiskey can provide a lot of joy. They are simple pleasures that give a lot.Not as much as hosting HH, but they work. ;)
Am I too late with this? Well, the thought of being together again with all my children and their families in Yerushalayim someday keeps me going and brings me joy.Also, certain tefilot from Shabbat & chol shacharit (Nishmat, etc.). Simchat Torah, Pesach, and singing zmirot with my kids & their spices (plural of 'spouse')around the Shabbat or Yom Tov table.I must add--in reading the comments--I see you have some wonderful husbands here...
The little things bring me joy--when I'm driving and an old song that I haven't heard in years come on, when the air is fresh and crisp, when my husband calls me in the middle of the day for no reason at all.And sometimes, when the stars are aligned just right and everyone is happy and together and content, knowing that I have achieved my lifelong dream of living in Israel brings me a great deal of joy as well.
LL,We only have the best husbands here. ;)Baila,Fresh, crisp air is cool and I don't mean that to be sarcastic or punny.
