As Told by You

The other day, I went grocery shopping. I was hoping I had enough cash on me, but needed everything on my list either way. I filled up my wagon, and as I neared the check out isles, I realized I had exactly $142 on me. Now, I work hard to stick to my budget, so I told myself, “Hashem will take care of me.” And with that I got on line and started emptying my wagon. The cashier rang everything up. I watched the numbers get closer…

As Told by You

I live on a busy street, where I see plenty of people walking their dogs each day. There is one particular person who walks her dog each morning. She was the keeper of the streets. Like, whenever she’d walk by a knocked over trash can, she’d put it back in its place, and that type of thing. Whenever I would see her, I’d say hi, but she would usually have something to say about how I parked my car or kept my lawn… Even still,…

As Told by You – Saved by the Helmet

Two weeks into the school year, and just after Rosh Hashana, I was riding my bike to school one morning. Before this morning, I would pass my living room, where my helmet would sit still in its box. So just like all the days before, I left my house. But for some funny reason, I turned back about 30 seconds later and went to get my helmet. Three blocks into my ride, there were two women walking in my path, so I attempted to ride…

As Told by You

I was driving in the car with my kids, and I hear my four-year-old son say from the back, “Mommy, my head is hurting.” So I asked, “Why?” He answered, “Maybe I ate too much healthy food…” Where did he get that from? I hope not me lol! 🙂 As told by: Reader J.

As Told by You

Last year during Hol Hamoed Pesah, my husband and I were setting up our chocolate fondue dipper. As my husband unwrapped the chocolate, he happened to look at the wrapping and was carefully reading the hebrew lettering on the kosher symbol. (I’m not sure why he decided to do that, but I’m sure glad he did!) He noticed that it said “Lo Kasher L’Pesach” …which means “NOT kosher for Passover”! It was so tricky!! Especially since the packaging looks identical to the Passover chocolates. We…
