Vesamachta Bechagecha

I just finished reading a book about Rav Nochum Cohen, titled 180 Rechov Yaffo, by Dr. Meir Wikler.
One episode in the book is about one of Rav Cohen's rebbeim, Rav Elya Roth, z'l. It describes a man who came to Rav Elya, depressed because his daughter needed a shidduch and wished to request a beracha from Rav Roth.
.
Rav Roth said to him, "Depressed? You are feeling depressed? You should jump up right now and dance. You should dance and sing praise to Hashem that he has given you a daughter! Do you know how many people are childless right now and would give anything to have a child? Then, after you are finished dancing, I will give you a beracha to find a shidduch for your daughter."

May we merit finding the right shidduchim for ourselves, our children, grandchildren and friends at the right time. In the meanwhile, let's rejoice in all the good that has been bestowed upon us.
