I shared this piece with my husband. He then said to me, “Sweetie, that is who you are.” Funny -- I showed it to him because I thought it described who he is. No matter where we go, I see him befriend and embrace perfect strangers and leave them humored, warmed, and ultimately, “changed.” I want to be like him, like Nelson Mandela, Mother Theresa, a compassion monger. So I work at it. I awake each day with this goal in mind: to embrace my husband, children, the grocer, the banker, even strangers in line with me. Daily, I pray for G-d to remove from me every single character defect that would prevent me from radiating the goodness He put me here to spread. I then ask that He fill me with what I need to do His will. It is only through daily prayer, diligent work, learning and spiritual study that I can go out and hope to embrace every life I touch. Every single life.
