Today, my daughter sat down next to me and saw the sadness on my face. When she asked what was wrong, I was honest. "I don't know enough," I said. My 12-year-old daughter immediately responds, "You know the right amount." Her words are so kind, I ask her to repeat them. As she repeated the words, "You know the right amount" a smile crosses my face and I can feel myself physically relax.
So, in my ongoing search to find solutions, I need help to identify my problem. What is it that I want to accomplish:
To learn to speak Hebrew or
To deepen my ability to prayer without knowing Hebrew or
To deepen my ability to prayer with knowing Hebrew or
To deepen my study and practice of meditation or
To learn more Torah text or
I am on a journey. I know that learning is the key to this journey. I am not sure what my next steps will be or how or when these problems will become great opportunities.
Today I will simply appreciate my daughter's words and be grateful that I know the right amount.
