Tzippy

Hey all you Laser Beams-ers

It’s Tzippy, you know, Racheli’s famous friend from the gym (the one who will beat her at any arm wrestle - hands down).
Racheli is out doing this whole car swap situation with her husband, and I totally hacked into her computer to take over her blog for today. Racheli - this better get posted, or else…

Today’s topic is going to be all about doing Chesed in your everyday life. This week has been one of my craziest weeks ever, I mean like ever. I just moved apartments, purchased furniture for the first time, and launched my business, all in the same two days. Plus on top of that - me, being the absolute genius that I am, decided to throw a party in my new place tomorrow, ya know just to keep it interesting.

Racheli, being the absolute goddess that she is, made me food every single day the last week. Plus, when she invited me over she made it sound like I was doing her a favor. She called me up saying “Can you please come over and help me get rid of this food, because you know me and David fast 23 hours and 45 minutes a day and we don’t want this heavenly food in this house.”

Then when I came over she served me dinner like a queen, drinks and dessert included, helped me out with grocery shopping and finding movers. All the while making it sound like it was no big deal at all. Now unless you are new here, you know Racheli has 5 boys who keep her hands full all day and all night (literally).

But that in my eyes is the definition of a true giver, someone who gives from her entire heart, and has this way of understanding and knowing people’s needs.

It’s the way Chesed was meant to be done.

So thank you Racheli for all your help

xoxo

Wow! Awesome post, Racheli! I agree with it all, 100%! God help us all... 😢

Kalman

I think the simple answer is that people aren't outraged about the things you listed because they don't agree with you or are not shocked by some of these things.

Big Pharma? The transgender movement? The reality is that not everyone agrees with your views on these topics. Your truth is there truth. It's not realistic to expect everyone to see it your way.

Antisemitism? Child trafficking? Genocide? These are old hats. Hardly shocking and far (far!) from home for most of us. Most of us would care a lot more if these things were closer to home.

Just a poem to think about

Racheli

Exactly my point, Kalman. People are so desensitized, so numb to everything around them. Plus, their value system has been so perverted that these issues are not issues at all to them. That was what I was trying to say. Just look at how far we've come from Truth, from just human decency, from living in the "real" world. Sometimes I wonder if we're even human any more!

Racheli

Thanks so much, Messody! I'll check it out. Where you been??

Racheli

Thanks so much, Tena! It's so sad that we've become so disconnected from what's real and important in life...

Messody

Don't worry, I am not going anywhere.
Unfortunately people will be outraged till mosicah comes. I think people are so numb is because they cannot deal with reality. So they deal with Facebook instead. Picking fights and reading nonsense. Its like watching a train wreck ( an official pastime ). No one wants to become vulnerable so they will seek answers to help them sleep at night. My question is where is the HOPE ? .
Thank you
P.S.
Have Rabbi Brody look at the poem.

anne

your best post ever!!!!especially what you say about big pharma

Racheli

WOW, Anne, thank you soooo much!!! I'm especially happy that you agree with me on the Big Pharma crimes against humanity. They are so incredibly evil, and the worst part is that most of the world is completely blind to their evil. Well, we can only do what we can do... Purim Sameach!

Racheli

Messody, you're totally right, especially about the mud-slinging on facebook. People are so disgusting on there! The same guy who smiles politely at you could be the same guy who's typing all sorts of insults and profanities! It's the ultimate passive-aggressive fun, I guess.
Anyhow, the hope is hiding underneath the couch, along with lost quarters and crumbs of potato chips. If you dig really hard, you'll find it! ;)))

Racheli

Messody, I couldn't download the poem. Can you send it in a comment? If you don't want me to, I don't have to post it. Thanks!
