Finding Hope and Joy

There are some things I didn't think I'd miss.. In fact, they didn't even come to mind..
But this morning, as I was leaning over the toilet and couldn't throw up, I had wished more than anything I could have had my dad there to bring me saltines and tell me everything was going to be okay. That's something I really miss today.
I got a package a few hours later, from my father, with a book I left at home.
"Always remember:
Joy is not merely incidental to
your spiritual quest.
It is vital."
-Rebbe Nachman of Breslov
