Tehillim Sixty-Nine: Joy

Today, my family celebrated several simchas. We had a party for two of our cousins, celebrating their respective 90th and 88th birthdays, and their 68th wedding anniversary. Tomorrow is my first wedding anniversary, and it’s nothing short of inspiring to see these two amazing people and role models still so in love and best friends after a lifetime together. Both of them are Holocaust survivors, and to see them today, happy and healthy and prosperous, surrounded by an extended family full of life, is the ultimate win and joy. In today’s psalm, it says, “Answer me, O Lord, for Your kindness is good; according to Your abundant mercies, turn to me (Psalms 69:17).” That verse seemed to totally fit for today, for survivors and the success they’ve achieved through their legacy.
