Elizabeth Edwards is a woman for whom I have great admiration. Brilliant, big spirited, a mother for whom I have great respect. A woman who has lived through personal tragedy in a very public way. She has, to our view, remained classy and full of grace.
I am so deeply saddened to know that her health is in great decline and is expected to pass soon. My prayers are with her, and with her children, particularly the littlest ones, who just haven't had enough time with her....
Another woman I admire and respect, Katie Allison Granju, holds forth on Why Elizabeth Edwards is a Mothering Heroine to Me on her Babble blog. Well worth the read.
My prayers remain with you, too, Katie. Daily.
