A Bit Melancholy

This Sunday, Harley and I will be attending a memorial service. I, for one, am dreading it. I hate displaying my emotions publicly, but I cry fairly easily (example: last night's Grey's Anatomy) so beyond the average awfulness of the occasion, I am likely to be both tearful AND angry.

Because I am a glutton for punishment, I suggest the following Jewish blogs on love, loss, and moving on. These blogs aren't limited to that topic, but all are written by men who have lost a child. I can't imagine anything more heartbreaking.

At any rate, here are the blogs. I feel weird about describing them, so my suggestion would be to just read through them yourselves:

Elie's Expositions by Elie Rosenfeld
Moving On by Glen Holman
The Book of Ben by Alan Busch
Seraphic Secret by Robert Avrech

And a few that don't fit that mould:
Five Years Later by With Love
Spark in You by Regina Clare Jane
