Blog Recommendations

Just want to take a minute out to point out two blogs that I read regularly. Both are written by fathers who suffered the worst sort of loss - the death of a child. Both are poignantly written, and I find myself going back to read their accounts of the days before and after their respective children's deaths often.

Elie-Expositions are the musings of a father who lost his teenaged son to a sudden illness. His frequent thoughts about life are great, but the posts I find myself reading over and over again are the ones in the sidebar, titled "Aaron's Story". They detail the story of Elie's son Aaron's short hospitalization and death. So sad, but so simply yet beautifully written.

Moving On is a blog written by the father of a beautiful little girl, Nechama Liba, who passed away before her eleventh birthday. She was ill throughout her life, but her father's stories of her faith and cheerful disposition even in the face of a life-threatening condition are truly amazing to read.

I recommend both of these well-written blogs - as much for the uplifting way these parents are coping with their loss, as for the message their stories send to live for every day of life.

Strange- I chose today to recommend Moving On as well. That blog is so well written and so poignant.

Very nice Mom. I've been reading Glen's writing for some time now (I may have even given him a mention on my blog while back, but I have a feeling more people will see yours)

You are missing out on another very fascinating blog by an orthodox (quite famous screenwriter) father that lost his son... and the publishing project he undertakes in his honor...

I visit his blog daily.

And HE mentions Glen's blog today too!

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
