What will you thank Hashem about today?
« on: October 21, 2021, 12:14:40 PM »
Rav Avigdor Miller made thanking Hashem publicly into a more mainstream activity, and I think there is something great about doing it.

Firstly, no matter how much we thank Hashem, we will never achieve a tip of the tip of what we owe him. And second, and the impetus for me starting this thread, is that thanking Hashem for the (seemingly) small things we are blessed with gives us a perspective on how good life is, and it can make us into happier people.

Feel free to use this thread to post small things ("Thank you Hashem for diet coke"), for big things (Thank you Hashem for giving me a healthy baby girl"), or more humorous, though true, quips ("Thank you Hashem for DDF").

I'm about to post something that some people may take as satire or political, but I really have this genuine feeling.

Thank you Hashem to keeping Merrick Garland off the Supreme Court.

Today's lunch and this topic inspired: TYH for the vibrancy and variety in color and flavor, as well as the freshness, of produce.

I thank HaShem for the people I work with. The level of Simcha, emuna, and hakaras hatov they display and speak all the time is really remarkable. These are regular baal batim but they’re on fire .

It's really amazing.

I think back to when I was a kid and would never chose to eat a fruit or a vegetable. But as an adult, there is so much deliciousness to savor, something so vibrant and amazing about each variety of fruit and vegetable - it's something no candy company, or any human, can replicate.

That I cannot relate to jokes like these in the slightest to the extent that they seem insulting.

Just saw a video clip of a shiur (don't know who the speaker is) with this joke, so I'm writing it here:


A man was at a levaya and he saw his friend walk up to the aron and tell the niftar, "I'm moichel you, I'm moichel you, I'm moichel you."

So the man asked his friend, "He owed you money?"

"No," his friend responded. "He was my shadchan."
