My grandson came over for a barbecue last night with his Mommy and Daddy and little brother. We were standing outside the house, and I noticed his new shoes peeking out from under the bottom of his pants. I said, “Hey, you have new shoes!” And he answered, ‘Ya, and they light up? See?”
And then he stomped his right foot a few times on the sidewalk, and I saw some little red light flash. I said, “Wow! That’s so cool! And what happens at night?”
“They glow in the dark!”
Now, I often turn my grandsons’ remarks into mantras for myself, because as we know the kids say the darndest things…
I want that to be my mantra for myself – when things get rough and challenging. No matter how dark things get for us, there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. Always something to look forward to. G-d gives us some hope to see – that glows for us in the dark.
Sometimes we just have to stamp our feet and ask for it, pray for it, and wait for it. But it will come. It always does.
A pretty good mantra to hold onto – from my 4 year old grandson.
Have a great day!
