I am well into my 40's. As I get older, I learn to appreciate the normalcy’s of life. I am getting used to my ol’ body, my limitations, and I am comfortable about it. I know I will never be a ballerina, an astronaut, or a brain surgeon. And that's ok. Now.
What I am grateful for is living in this time period, where we Jews in this generation can make a difference. I have seen Israel go from a third world country that didn't have air conditioning, color TV, large supermarkets, …or even 'diet sodas'. Today, you can get almost anything here, and we are one of the leaders in computers, technology, and agriculture in the world.
But I didn't mention the miracles.
Considering the vast amount of Jew haters that live in the Middle East, and that vow our destruction, it is a miracle we live here. And yet we do. I go to work every day, I shop, go to appointments, run errands, barbeque, have guests over, and just live a great fulfilling life. My children are comfortable with a Hebrew Prayer book and they don't need a translation when reading our Holy Torah. It is truly a blessing to be living the dream of my ancestors here in Israel. Everything one does in their daily routines helps the economy, providing jobs from everything from teachers, to shop keepers, to restaurant owners and more.
The post man is Jewish, the store clerk, the bus drivers - all Jewish. I remember what it was like the first time I rode an Israeli bus and sat in the back, seeing all the heads in front of me wearing the most beautiful kippas (yarmulkas) proudly, with not a thought of, "I might stand out" or, "Is it safe?"
So be proud, know that G-d has blessed us, and this Land. G-d makes miracles everyday, sometimes big ones, sometimes ones that people don't notice... until you grow old. It is then that one can fully appreciate the wonder that we even exist today as a People, and that we have returned to The Land after 2,000 years.
And in spite of our poor leadership, we are still living full, rich lives in this beautiful land of miracles.
