So it goes like this....

She thought and thought about whether she had contributed to the "greater good"...
Had she done so with INTENT ?
Or had this merely been a product of  HAPPENSTANCE ?
Had SHE herself gone out in search of "people in need" ?
Would ANYONE,
 in the same circumstances,
 had done the same kind of things ?
And then she thought about how she ALWAYS rolled down her car window...
even in the rain....
And handed dollar bills to the beggars passing by through the traffic at the red lights....
And then she thought of OLD RABBI METZGER in her yeshiva...
And he had always told her that JUDAISM MANDATED EXACTLY
 this kind of GIVING ...
""without judgement....""
And then she smiled at her memory of him....
And she thought of how ABSOLUTELY CRITICAL
this kind of giving was....
And then she had a WHITE CHOCOLATE MACADAMIA COOKIE....
and then she slept.....
and SHABBOS rolled in ....
just like that......
