I know some people can see numbers in colors, and it helps them feel and memorize numbers very quickly and easily. It is as if the colors are making sense for numbers to mean whatever they mean. I am surely not one of these persons and to count is not an easy task for me.
However, anyone can count on me: I keep my word even when it costs me efforts and pain.
Thinking about it, I have betrayed myself more than I have done it to others. I should remember to be able to count on me too. Working on forgiveness and accountability has brought a lot of awareness, and it is not an easy path. Most than often, there is an enormous amount of resistance.
But if I say the words aloud, I can hear them and then they count, I cannot pretend I did not say them. And then I need to stand by them and honor them and remember that I count too.
This year, I have committed to a daily blog in English to participate in @imabima’s project of Elul. I will dedicate my endeavor for the רפואה שלמה complete healing of מרדכי אלעזר בן חנה מרים (Mordechai ben Chanah).
