Oy, living with someone can give a Yenta a kopveytik (headache). Retirement Yenta loves her dear hubby. LOVES him. But sometimes, no matter how hard a Yenta tries, there can be a tiff or disagreement. For these occasions, when a Yenta annoys, or gets annoyed, your dear Yenta has the answer. Build goodwill in the good times. That’s right, just as your Bubby told you as a child: play nice and your friends will play nice too. Then when the trouble arises, your mate will have all the good times with you to remind him how much he loves you. OR, it will remind a Yenta how much the Yenta loves him.
Retirement Yenta recommends Linda Kaplan Thaler’s and Robin Koval’s book, The Power of Small. As you know, every yenta loves good advice, especially when she can pass it on to others. One of Retirement Yenta’s favorite chapters in this book is Small Changes the World (Chapter 9). Thaler and Koval believe there is no limit to how great a difference can be made in the world through small acts of kindness. Retirement Yenta suggests that you consider how you can make a change in the world with a small gesture of kindness today.
