“Where is Abba?” “When Is he coming home?” “What do you mean he’s gone?”
My children ask me these questions all day every day. They are so young, too young to understand. Even I don’t understand.
Two weeks ago, police came to my door to tell me that my husband had been killed in a car accident. At first I didn’t believe it – He had just been home, he had just dropped off our 6-year-old at school. He was killed on her birthday.
Since then, it seems like the entire world has been put on my shoulders. When Yosef Chaim was here, he worked two jobs to support us, and I managed the home. Now I have so many of my own questions: How will I find a job when I have a baby at home? How will I pay the bills? Will we be homeless? How will I afford the basics of Shabbat, Purim – Pesach?? And even scarier, how will we survive the lonely years ahead? My children are relying on me to give them everything now. And I am torn apart by grief. I am terrified that I can’t do it alone.
If you are reading this, Hashem wanted you to find our story. I am praying that you will open your heart and that if you have anything to give, you will help us. For the kids who don’t know why Abba isn’t coming home. Our hearts will never heal from this, but at least with your help I can keep them safe.
Hashem should bless you with parnassah and shalom, health, and to always be on the side of the giver.
