Breathing into Shabbat

היום עשרה ימים שהם שבוע אחד ושלשה ימים בעמר
Today is ten days, which is one week and three days of the omer
תפארת שבגבורה
A day of compassion in a week of strength

I take a deep breath, preparing to enter Shabbat.
Time to join with community - release the week past
A refreshing pause - before we start again

It is sad and funny at the same time..when I am in crisis..a friend will say to me...breathe...and I will not be able to access that wisdom...not on any level....but when I see a friend in crisis..the first thing I think to tell them..breathe..inspiration....wish I could learn to apply it to myself..weird creation..humans...
