On Shabbos, the soul receive a message from Above – the neshama yeseirah. Our soul wants to rejoice, but it is inhibited by the body which does not understand spiritual joy. Therefore, the Torah decreed that on Shabbos and Yom Tov the body should be treated to delicious food and drink. This way, the body can revel in physical pleasure, while the soul rejoices with its companion, the neshama yeseirah that came down from Heaven. ~ Toldos Yaakov Yosef

May you be an inspiration to family, friends and all of Klal Yisroel and and go from strength to strength and continue to do great things!
