By the grace of G-d

“You can't always get what you want” —
In fact, you hardly ever get what you want. However, it is accurate to say that by trying we do find that we have what we need – at least to get by.
We can also find reasons to be thankful for what we have.
So why is it that we hardly ever get what we want?
Actually, it depends on what we want. Our eyes are "bigger than our stomachs."
G-d helps how He wants . . . but He is good.
