  Chapter 11:
Ahavas Yisroel But We Are Married
 

Imagine that you have been married for 30-40-50 years. You come home to find a note pinned to your pillow. The note says:

Dear Abe,

Sometimes a few written words are necessary to overcome the everyday routine of life.

I just want to let you know how much I thank you for the wonderful life that we have had together. All the problems, challenges, and joys have been a magnificent and satisfying adventure. Thank you for all of it. Thank you for being my lover, best friend and family.

I wouldn't have missed a minute for anything.

I have loved you always.

Sari
Or the following letter:

Dear Sari,

Sometimes a few written words are necessary to overcome the everyday routine of life.

I just want to let you know how much I thank you for the wonderful life that we have had together. All the problems, challenges, and joys have been a magnificent and satisfying adventure. Thank you for all of it. Thank you for being my lover, best friend and family.

I wouldn't have missed a minute for anything.

I have loved you always.

Abe
Standing under the chuppah 30-40-50 years before, would this not be the letter you wanted to receive some day if you could have imagined it? What if in advance you knew that providing your spouse, the other part of your soul, with the physical, emotional and spiritual nourishment necessary, you would come one day to receive a letter like this? Would you not have done everything in your power to do so?

There is a simple reality which needs to be part of the final perspective of this book for reader and author. This letter is achievable by all of us. It is a function of effort and focus. The book is a suggestion that that effort and focus commence immediately.

The reader has not come this far without noticing that both letters are exactly the same.
