Number 5

בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה ה' אֱלהֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעולָם. פּוקֵחַ עִוְרִים

Baruch Ata Adonai Eloheinu Melech Ha’Olam Pokeach Ivrim.

Praised are You Lord our God Sovereign of the universe Who give sight to the blind.

In these times when facts and truth are questioned at every turn maybe just maybe our focus can change to something more important like kindness and generosity.  There are people in the world who need our help.  There are people who are literally blind and there are people who are figuratively blind to the challenges of those around them. When we recognize our blessings we should be able to realize there are those who are not blessed in such a way.

We thank God for the ability to see our blessings and recognize there are those who need our help and we have so much to give.
