It is with a great sense of exuberance that I share these thoughts with you today. Last week my wife gave birth to our eighth addition to the Black clan. Even after eight children I cannot cease to be in awe at the birth of a little baby. There is not a lot I can do there in the Labour ward as my wife goes through the travail of the labour. For reasons of Tzniut I stand back, but it is an over powering moment. As I see our little child for the first time I hold on to his petite manicured fingers. If there is a time to bless Hashem for all the goodness that He has bestowed on us, this is it as I witness first hand the wonder of His hand. I thank Him and I thank my dear wife Yehudit for being so good.
