Simcha is the Key

by Ben Durdaya (See all authors)

I woke up today feeling R.I.D (Restlessness, Irritability, and Discontent) big-time. I began to shout "MAY DAY!"... I held myself together long enough to turn on some Purim music. I picked up one of my children and danced with them. My 6 month old son was in his chair, and when he saw us dancing he understood the Simcha and started smiling. Then I pulled my family into the circle and we danced together - a living expression of "kol atzmosay tomarna - all my bones will declare, Hashem, who is like you!!", and I did it for a long time... Yes my friends, SIMCHA is the key!
