WISHES FOR THE HIGH HOLIDAYS
May God make your year a happy one!
Not by shielding you from all sorrows and pain,
But by strengthening you to bear it, as it comes;
Not by making your path easy,
But by making you sturdy to travel any path;
Not by taking hardships from you,
But by taking fear from your heart;
Not by granting you unbroken sunshine,
But by keeping your face bright, even in the shadows;
Not by making your life always pleasant,
But by showing you causes that need you most,
Any suggestion I offer is intended as friendly advice based solely on my own experience. Please consult your doctor for professional guidance.
