    Is Pain an emotion, energy or a feeling? which eventually our memory like everything else just learns to adjust while also forget or dilute to the point that it does not effect us in a negative way.

    i went on mivtzoim today and was handing out shabbos candles. one lady didnt want to take it from me. I told her that i have a friend who passed away at 37 very suddenly and that lighting the candles would be a favor for her as this is something she wanted.
    I never met Rashi in my life, but a fellow shlucha is a friend and as a shlucha i can only imagine that her life was focused on one more yid doing a mitzvah. May this be just one more zechus for her.
