Shabbat Shalom to the Angels Among Us

Shabbat Shalom to the Angels Among Us: posted 11/8/2013 by Rabbi Elaine Rose Glickman
Don't we all know some angels? The preschool teacher who carries our toddler around all morning when he's having trouble separating from us. The pediatrician who stays late when our child is sick, or who calls after hours to see how she's doing. The coach who sees our tween not just as a player, but as a unique and special individual. And when we're exhausted after a long day, but take the time to eat dinner with our children, to look them in the eye and ask about their day, to snuggle with their favorite book and a blanket instead of retreating to Facebook and Instagram...well, just maybe we are angels as well.
Shabbat Shalom to all you angels - and wishing peace unto you, messengers of the Most High.

And then – let’s be real here – maybe your world is set up in such a way that Friday evening Shabbat, services or dinner, simply can’t be observed properly. If that is the case, then don’t despair – find some Shabbat on Saturday.
