Two Questions and Love isn't blind

Feel Joy In Overcoming Obstacles

A powerful general will prefer difficult military assignments because he wants to show his strength and abilities when he is victorious.
Similarly, if you feel strong love for another person, you will experience joy when you find opportunities to express the full extent of love for that person.
So, too, when you have a strong love for the Almighty, the greater the obstacles in your path when trying to serve Him, the more joy you will experience - because this is an opportunity to show the strength of your commitment.
The next time you face an obstacle, focus on the fact that this enables you to feel greater love for the Almighty. Feel a sense of joy and empowerment that you can express your love by overcoming obstacles.

Love Isn't Blind

30 year old Moshe remains unmarried. His mother had passed away a few years earlier and he currently lives in a nice apartment just a few miles from his father Jacob. But then, out of the blue, Jacob visits Moshe and gives him some terrible news.
"Look Moshe," says Jacob, "It's important for you to find a wife as soon as possible."
"Why is that, dad?" asks Moshe.
"I'm sorry to have to tell you this son, but Doctor Levy has told me that I've got cancer and have only two years at most to live. So I'd love to see you get married before I pass away. Not only will you be doing a great mitzvah if you do this, but you'll also never ever have to worry about money because I've accumulated a very significant sum from my investment business - millions in fact. So please Moshe, please let me see you get married before I pass away."
With tears running down his face, Moshe hugs and kisses his father and says to him, "I'll really try dad, really. I promise."
A few weeks later, during a seminar on financial planning that he's attending Moshe notices the most beautiful woman he's ever seen and immediately falls in love with her. He goes over to her and says, "Hi, I'm Moshe and I've fallen in love with you. Would you like to tell me your name?"
"My name is Rebecca," she replies, smiling.
"What a lovely name," says Moshe. "So let me be honest with you Rebecca. You might think that I'm just your average guy, but let me assure you I'm not because in a year or two from now, my sickly father, whom I dearly love, and who lives on his own, is likely to die from cancer and when he does, I'm going to inherit millions of dollars."
They continue chatting and when it's time to depart, Rebecca asks Moshe for his business card. One month later, Rebecca became Moshe's stepmother.

 Two Questions

Life really boils down to 2 questions...

1. Should I get a dog....?


2. Should I have children?

Now that I made you smile, pass it on to someone else who needs a laugh today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Speaking of children:

If they all came out like these kids everybody would want them!!

I love them like they were my own.
