Something Small

I was driving in my car, listening to a shiur on my cassette player (yes, some people still have them!!!)
At the end of the first half, when it got quiet but didn’t yet turn over automatically, I was driving in silence. If I waited ten seconds it would have reached the end and flipped and reached the continuation. But I didn’t. I actually reached over and hit the reverse button so it played it right away. It wasn’t much but I had taken action for Torah. It’s surprising but it did feel like effort to shift position and press it. That’s why it also felt good that I had overcome the inertia to do it. Since then I try to do it all the time and I get the sense of satisfaction each time.
