|Baruch Dayan Ha'emet, HaMakom yenachem|
I only discovered that Sam was no longer in the pain if this world when I looked at the latest Havel Havelim on Esser Agaroth. If I had been home I would have screamed, but I controlled myself. I didn't want to frighten the grandkids.
As usual, this Esser Agaroth Havel Havelim is top notch. There's a wide variety of blog posts. Please read and share. Also join our blogging community by contributing to HH and hosting, too.
Havel Havelim is the weekly blog carnival, started many, many years ago by David of Soccer Dad, which offers links to many Jewish and/or Israeli blogs. HH floats around the internet. We organize it on our facebook page. Links can be sent via blog carnival. Let me know if you'll like to host an edition. It's not hard. Hosts will receive the links and the "instacarnival" from them and should also include other posts of their choosing.I still can't get over the fact that I survived, sort of, almost seventy hours, just short of three days without electricity, water and all the modern conveniences they bring us. One of those three days was Shabbat, when we only communicate with G-d and people within shouting distance. Actually, I saw nobody but my husband and one guest over the first two days and a three days if you count Thursday when we still had water, electricity, Internet etc, plus lots of cold rain. I spent that day cooking up a storm, which was good, because I even baked challot, and I didn't have to send my husband searching for them in the store. And we didn't have to eat matzot.
On Friday and Shabbat the sun was hidden, and I just didn't feel like going out until today, Sunday when the sun came out glowing gold in the blue sky. The white snow sparkled like diamonds. I did take oodles of pictures, but I can't post them now since I'm not home.
May all this snow be a blessing, a white shroud on the Holy Land, and may Sammy's family feel the love and comfort so many of us are trying to send them...
