I love children.
They are drops of purity in a muddled universe.
So I wanna change phone companies because mine has annoying service and I've found a comparable one with calls to many countries, but won't give me an American number for friends and family (and others) abroad to be able to call me for free.
So I deliberated for a bit.
And then I realized - with a smirk - that it makes no difference.
Nobody in America calls me anyhow :)
A husband and children would be nice.
As would belonging to a community.
And having a steady income.
And using my talents.
Those are all really nice things to have. Pretty important, too.
But not the most important, no.
The most important, the ONLY important thing is the foundation, the basics, of my existence.
The alef: a yud above and a yud below and line connecting them.
There's Hashem above and me below and a line of Torah and Mitzvos connecting us. And that's all that counts.
Me. Faith. Him.
