Can I take one for my brother?

I’m the candyman in shul and a kid asked me the most amazing question. He had already taken a lollipop, then said to me, “Can I take one for my brother?” of course the answer was yes.

I think that’s the kind of question you will ALWAYS get a yes to. When you’re thinking about someone else and going beyond your own desires it’s almost magical.

I believe HaShem works that way too, so let’s have others in our thoughts and prayers.
