My prayers and deepest sympathy go out today to the family and friends of Elizabeth Edwards.  She was full of grace during her battle with cancer, and I admire and respect her with all that I am as a woman, and as a mother.  She inspired me to be an honest and open writer, to have no fear in the words I choose, and that no matter what I face in my life, my greatest joy and everlasting legacy will be that of a mother.

Her children lost her too soon, but what a blessing for them to have been able to say goodbye, and have no doubt or questions about how much she loved them.  Rest in peace Elizabeth.  We shall embrace and love your children, and keep them in our prayers.  I know you are with your beloved son Wade, watching over your children, and carrying them with you always.  You were a lady, a hero and a master, at keeping the faith.

Elizabeth’s family has requested that in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Wade Edwards Foundation at www.wade.org.

Full of Grace
By Sarah McLachlan

The winter here’s cold, and bitter
It’s chilled us to the bone
We haven’t seen the sun for weeks
To long too far from home
I feel just like I’m sinking
And I claw for solid ground
I’m pulled down by the undertow
I never thought I could feel so low
Oh darkness I feel like letting go
If all of the strength and all of the courage
Come and lift me from this place
I know I could love you much better than this
Full of grace
Full of grace
My love
So it’s better this way, I said
Having seen this place before
Where everything we said and did
Hurts us all the more
Its just that we stayed, too long
In the same old sickly skin
I’m pulled down by the undertow
I never thought I could feel so low
Oh darkness I feel like letting go
If all of the strength
And all of the courage
Come and lift me from this place
I know I could love you much better than this
Full of grace
Full of grace
My love
