Doctor called me crazy because I like the scars and I said something when they took the skin between my ribs like it meant I was getting a wife, and then they took the skin off my left temple saying it wouldn't leave a scar and I said it would, and it looks like a house, today they took the skin from my left eye and the doc had two stitches in when I told her I always wanted one of those scars that cross your eyebrow up and down, and so the doctor laughed and took out the two stitches and began to stitch the opposite way so I would have that scar.

Crazy Joel said the doc, only you.

HaShem gave me a gift when He steered me to the local Chabad chapter about a year-and-a-half ago. While I initially only enrolled in the weekly classes, over the months I began to attend all holiday celebrations and, more recently, Shabbat services.

The gift of Chabad became all too apparent in recent days, as I lost my father recently and rose from Shivah only last week. The Rabbi and Rebbetzin have been amazingly supportive and comforting, providing me guidance, sympathy, and yes....friendship....as I work through this difficult time.

I thank HaShem for providing me with this source of comfort - and for sending me to this wonderful Rabbi and Rebbetzin.

(Rest in peace, Dad.)

That's beautiful, Rachel -- thanks for sharing! May your dear father's memory be a blessing.

Yes. That is a touching account of how Hashem works in our lives. May your father's memory be for a blessing.

I like to think of my anagramming skill as being a gift from HaShem, because I find it calming and it brings me a kind of inner peace. Here's another one for you, Hannibal:

האניבאל (Hannibal)
= אהבניאל (Ahavniel)

Ahavniel is a Hebrew name that means "G-d loves me." A good name for you, Hannibal.

Hannibal means the Baal is my grace (hanni). Just sayin'

And yes, Carthiginian=Phoenician=Canaanite, whose language was very close to biblical Hebrew.

I chose that name because it means Rome, and the greatest enemy of Rome, that I am in a struggle within myself, Hannibal hated Rome more than anyone.
