Ezzie's Blog Roundup, 6/14: Untitled

I don't think I'm generally a "complainer". I like to think that I'm pretty satisfied with what I have in life, and the truth is I'm quite blessed: I have a wonderful wife and beautiful daughter, a decent life, great friends, and a bright future. I do appreciate my good fortune in life, and recognize that one never knows when a simple twist of fate can turn it all around.

Others, however, never cease to amaze me. Some people overcome obstacles I avoid even thinking about. I cannot fathom the sadness that some have experienced, and will likely never be able to appreciate fully just how incredible it is that they have reached the heights they have. All I can do is sit in my seat and admire them for their accomplishments.

On that note...

*Posts of the Day*
Today is the 5th anniversary of the loss of DAG's twins. He relates their story, and reposts just how his loss doesn't compare to the losses of 9/11. Cry your heart out.
I am sitting in the 2nd bedroom in our new apartment. It is a nice new place,
bigger to accommodate our incoming twins. But alas it shall remain empty, a
constant reminder of what we lost.

2 days ago the drs told my wife it didn't look good, a few hours later they told
her it was over.
Now for the rest...
Faith in Nathan asks the same question I've been wondering.

  1. Thanks for including me in the round-up.

    Of course it was the super-talented Sarah who made my new banner with my photos. I guess I ought to blog about them.

  2. Wow - two days in a row - thanks for the inclusions.

    Beautiful post of the day - thanks for pointing me in the direction of it.

  3. Thanks for the link. I've put an update in my post also.

  4. Ezzie,

    Thanks for mentioning my rainbows.

    I wish you, Serach and Elianna many beautiful rainbows in your life!

  5. SL - Thanks.

    Pearl - Thank yoU!

  6. I'm with Jameel on the WorldCup thing - I just don't get it. There were bands of cheering Mexican men walking the streets of DC on Shabbos in full soccer gear - jersey's and sombreroes (sp?) - in preparation of the match between Mexico and Iran. It was bizarre.

    To be fair, at least they're constantly moving -movement of some sort - so it can potentially be more exciting than a pitcher's duel in baseball.

  7. The Cup is exciting to watch. Plus, it always makes a difference when the fans are into it.
