Parashat Miketz (At the end of two years)
Pharaoh dreams two dreams. Easy to interpret, but none of his magicians were right in the interpretation.
Then comes Joseph, who has the correct interpretation. Pharaoh says: That is the right one.
How did Pharaoh know that was "the one"?
One nice explanation is that when Pharaoh dreamed, together with the dream he got the explanation of the dream. When he woke up he only remembered the dreams but not the explanations.
Joseph's explanation coincided with the explanation Pharaoh already knew but forgot.
Sometimes reminders are as good as new explanations.
We need to be thankful with those who teach us and to those who refresh our memory, too.
