It’s My Opinion: Miracles, Wonders And Favors


            I’m always in a state of total shock when I view newborns. I’m in awe of the teeny size of their hands and fingers and those incredibly minuscule nails. It’s totally astonishing that they are real and complete human beings – and still they can be carried with one hand.

 

Infants emerge intact and newly formed. Without instruction, they start breathing, nursing and looking around. Scientific explanation not withstanding, the process is really marvelous.

 

             You’d think by this time I’d be familiar with the experience. After all, I’ve been blessed many times to be a mother and grandmother. However, the sense of amazement is always there.

 

There is a prayer in the daily Amidah (the thanksgiving Modim) that refers to ” your miracles that are with us every day; and for your wonders and favors in every season.”

 

Aaron Israel Benveniste

 

We are truly recipients of miracles, wonders and favors and they are around us every day. 

 

Welcome to this world, Aaron Israel Benveniste, my newest grandchild. Mazel tov to your parents, Dr. Ron and Rachel Benveniste, your brother Jacob, your sister Devorah, and to all of the Benveniste and Rosenbluth families. 

 

You are adorable. You are very loved. Your baba is filled with grateful joy!
