G-d Didn't Embarass Me

At a bris (circumcision ceremony) attended by the Dinover Rebbe, the baby's maternal grandmother was standing in the back crying loudly.
When her friends asked her what was wrong, she explained that this past Rosh Hashana, she was crying loudly in shul because she had just found out from a doctor that this daughter who was the mother of the newborn could not have any children. She was crying so loudly, that with great embarrassment, she was asked to leave the synagogue.
"I am crying now because G-d did not embarrass me."

- Heard at the table of the Dinover Rebbe, 8/21/99
