Hi Rabbi, thank you once again for your encouraging and uplifting words of wisdom, as always they are so very helpful.

At 42.25 you speak of the captain of his ship overcoming and your words of… “that which doesn’t kill me makes me stronger”. Another saying that came to me a few years ago but has basically the same meaning is “that in which we overcome is ours to keep” May Hashem bless us to use it wisely.

You and the Rebbe have been such a blessing in my life… and as I navigate and start to let go of things I simply don’t understand and unravel all of the stuff that has happened in my life. I have to tell you, you truly have been a very blessed guide in my life so thank you very much, and may Hashem continue to guide you and bless you and all of us with the ability overcome and serve Hashem well!
