Midday of Tisha B’Av approaches!

Chatzot, or halachic midday, is coming close. This is when I start preparing the meal to break our fast. This is also the time to start cleaning the house, especially the floors, in preparation for the coming of our redemption.

Cleaning the house today is therapeutic. Today is a day of reflection, repentance, and somber feelings. Physically focusing on mundane tasks can help me mentally focus on the less mundane.

May this day soon be one of celebration.
