A Parasha Ponder…Parashat Chukat

No Comments 17 June 2010

In this week’s Torah portion, Hashem instructs Moshe to speak to the rock to bring forth water for the people. Instead of following these exact instructions, Moshe is flustered by the congregation’s nagging and hits the rock. Furthermore he calls the people “you rebels.” Moshe’s reaction does not please G-d, and Moshe is consequently punished.

Luckily for us, the bible is not filled with perfected angels treading on clouds, but rather with actual people living on the rough terrain of life, providing stories we can learn from.

How Moshe reacted makes me think about what regular people do in frustration. Most of us (not me,) raise our voices and find some way to bully our viewpoints through. Who of us can say (maybe me) that we have not once used name-calling to try to inspire someone to improve?

Parents, teachers, and spouses especially hold very close mirrors that can reflect a lasting picture. Calling a person lazy, stubborn, dumb, sickly or annoying is like placing a permanent and damaging brand on his or her self-image. While it is better to say: You are acting lazy, dumb, sickly, and/or annoying, it is still better is to say: You are helping me so much, I love what you are saying, you look better today, thanks for being so kind, showing such patience…

And when loved ones just don’t inspire these words, I say, hold your tongue and look harder.

Gifts That Give Back

No Comments 17 June 2010

The best gifts are always the ones you can enjoy too. Your husband knows that trick, thats why he books a vacation for your anniversary instead of buying you jewelry. He wants in. Here are some gifts that you can snag a little joy from, or just plain snag.

Margaritaville Bahamas Frozen Concoction Maker – $199 (Frozen drink maker… ‘Nuff said.)

Power Drill - $129 (I saw a commercial for this on TV and I actually thought, OH WOW, I want this! No more paintings propped against walls instead of hung where they belong!)

John Allan’s Hair Products and Membership (Cause who wants their man looking scruffy… Well I do, so I guess this one is more for them than for you.)

Olive Oil of the Month Club $22/month (Gourmet Olive Oil delivered to your doorstep. YES!)

Ipad – $499 and up (You know you want it… You just dont want to admit it.)

Canon G11 – $499 (Best Camera EVER. I have it and LOVE it. Ten thumbs up.)

Vilebrequin linen Shirt - $198 (This classic linen shirt will take your man through summers for years to come…. Looking great.)

Obviously, these gifts would be awesome for your father or your baby’s daddy, but you can get more out of them if you give them to your spouse!
