Two Omer Thoughts

1.  It reminds us that the freedom of Pesach only find it's consummate meaning, which we build up to and then celebrate, when we get the Torah on Shavuot.

2. It's a testament to the fact that life is largely about being excited about something at first and then needing to struggle to keep that excitement. Shavuot is a check in time seven weeks later to see how we're doing after the high of Pesach has passed.

Rabbi Heshy Reichman has a fantastic shiur on this concept, on Parshas Vayetze, based on Shem Mishmuel. I listened to it on the Naaleh website.
