My kids have always been in tzaharon (extended day programs at school). Always, because I work. But most of their friends' mothers are home in the afternoons, so my kids always felt a little blah about staying, because they had no choice but to stay till 4 when their friends went home at 1:30.
This was sad for me, but I didn't think anything could be done to 'fix' it. I didn't even ask Hashem to do anything but make my daughters happy in the program.
AND THEN THE LAWS ALL OVER ISRAEL CHANGED, making free afternoon programs in many communities - including ours. The schools started encouraging EVERY CHILD TO STAY TILL 4PM. It is now the 'popular' thing to do, plenty of kids whose moms are home are staying, my daughters are now in tzaharon groups of 30 instead of 5 kids per group... and all this Hashem did for ONLY FOR ME AND MY GIRLS, without me even knowing to ask the question.
Yeah, that's beyond awesome. But then - God is.
