A SEEING EYE

A SEEING EYE

A few months ago, I was very down. I had just broken my longest clean streak of 194 days. For 8 days, I rolled in the filth, and then decided to get myself back up again, and try for the 2nd round of 90 days clean. The first few weeks were the hardest. I had recently started learning in a new Kollel. I took a short bathroom break one day, and since I was still in the doldrums, I fell back on old habits. I started giving in, when I happened to look at the graffiti that was scrawled on the back of the door. I saw a crude picture of an eye, with the words "We see you" scrawled underneath. I stopped cold! I had used that bathroom stall before, but never noticed this particular scribble. A few weeks later, I was in the same restroom stall again, and the walls had been scrubbed clean! the message was there when I needed it and then removed.
