I was one of the people who heard you speak in Thornhill (Toronto - LB) two weeks ago. You probably don't remember me, but I was one of the many people who came up to you after the lecture and asked for your blessings.
I told you that I've been out of work for 4 months already, and haven't been able to find a job. You said something that sounded really weird to me. You told me, "Good - now you have time to talk to Hashem with no excuses. Thank Him for being out of work." Honestly, I thought you were weird for telling me that. But, after talking to Hashem and thanking Him for three days in a row, I realized what you meant. The lecture was Sunday night, and I spoke to Hashem on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. Thursday, I got a job offer at a better salary than what I was making before. I've been at the new job for a week already, and not only do I love it, but it seems really promising. I wrote this so that your readers could learn how powerful it is to thank Hashem, even under tough times. Thank you so much. Yaakov from Toronto
