My husband is the more patient of us. So, I was grateful when he volunteered to help our youngest daughter study for her math test.
After a while, he called for my help. As a kid, he never had the patience to do long division, so he found it difficult to instruct our daughter.
Pleased that I could help, I slowly walked our daughter through the steps of long division.
After she understood how to solve the equations, Moshe asked her how she can check her answers, to verify that they are correct.
Without missing a beat, our 11 year old answered, "with a calculator."
Please daven (or send happy, healing thoughts) for RivkA bat Teirtzel.
With love and optimism,
Feeling Rather Virtuous
