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.
