So the other day, one of my daughters called at a time of day that she usually doesn’t, and asked, “Ma, why did you send out a post about Pesach and sleep and why with the Irgun Shiurei Torah logo….?”
So I checked, and sure enough, that’s what happened. I emailed my wonderful web developer, and she told me that she was testing out a few new features on the website (debbieselengut.com) and accidentally sent it.
So after I got over the embarrassment, or at least some of it, I started getting a lot of really appreciative responses.
Like: “How did you know that you sent exactly the message I needed to hear, at exactly the right time!”
Or, “I actually was in a really bad mood, and your post was like a lightbulb, I just needed sleep, I woke up a whole different person.”
Or, “My husband said ‘Why don’t you listen to Mrs. Selengut and go take a nap, things will look much different in an hour.’”
Just goes to show us that everything that happens, even what looks like a mistake, is Hashgaha pratis.
