Thankful Thursday 6 May 2021

Wow! May already!? 2021 is really flying by.

On Saturday I am reading the Haftarah blessing. Last Saturday, one of the congregants asked for volunteers and I volunteered. I added, “I’m new to this and I’ll need some help.” The congregant is the Gabbi, which is a leader when the Rabbi isn’t available, and he called me the next day. I’m reading the blessing, which is short.

The Gabbi called me this morning and had me recite it. I’m doing well and he’s impressed. We both can’t wait until Saturday. I’m really grateful that they are letting me read a little bit and they’ve been helpful. It’s nice to feel welcomed.

I’m also thankful for friends and family. What are you thankful for today?

    Happy Thankful Thursday, dear friend! I am proud of you for stepping forward and volunteering to read the Haftarah blessing this Saturday. I am also touched that the Gabbi is helping you prepare. Everywhere you turn, you are finding friends to lend a helping hand, welcome and support you. You are blessed. Listening to the melodic blessing brought tears to my eyes. Your journey continues.
