Thank You, Elizabeth Edwards

“Resilience is accepting your new reality, even if it’s less good than the one you had before. You can fight it, you can do nothing but scream about what you’ve lost, or you can accept that and try to put together something that’s good.” -Elizabeth Edwards

Thank you, Ms. Edwards, for putting so much effort into raising wonderful children while also doing your best to prepare them for life without you. I have so much respect for how you did that, from the letters you wrote to your kids to the practical things you taught them.

You faced every mother’s nightmare — dying before your youngest children are grown and on their own. And you did it with class and grace and so much love.

I’m sure your children will carry on your good works and will make their mark on the world in many ways thanks to what you did with the too-short time you had with them.

Rest in peace.
