I can’t wait for it to pour!

I’ve never heard anyone say that they can’t wait for it to pour. But tonight I said exactly that to my wife. Yes, it was primarily because I was in one of those moods and wanted attention, but that wasn’t the full intent behind my comment.

Today, we had our gutters replaced.

The truth is that I do kind of want it to pour, because I want to see if they really work. I paid money to have it done and I want to see the return on my investment.

I had been a little nervous, because in my case, the gutter replacement was somewhat of a process. Yesterday, the old gutters were removed and the fascia board replaced, so I was feeling rather vulnerable. Yesterday, I certainly did not want it to rain. But today, when the job is done, I can’t wait for my nachas.

HKBH gives us challenging times, in which we need to replace our parts and work on new keilim - new perspectives. That is a delicate time for us. Once we have worked on ourselves and have new perspectives, however, the tests we pass give HKBH great nachas.
