I loved it! I love the idea of the first word of the day is Modeh and the blessings that it brings. I am so miserable and frightened when I wake up. I feel like there is a weight of fear that is already consuming my aching thoughts. And yet I get up. Somehow I get up. Somehow I push through the terror and get myself into the groove of the day. But your idea of saying Modeh even when I'm miserable sounds logical; my making a hole, even if I don't feel it, in that misery there is an opening for blessing to come in. Like at the beach when I would make a hole in the sand and the sea water would fill it up, blessing fills the vacuums that my good deeds make in my sadness. And that feels terrific! Thank you! Reply
