A WOMAN TO ADMIRE ...
Love this excerpt from the June 2009 issue of Oprah. It's an interview she does with Elizabeth Edwards, wife of former presidential candidate John Edwards. Elizabeth has a new book out, Resilience, in which she talks about, among other things, finding out about Edwards' affair. The Edwardses lost their teen-age son before they came into the public eye for most of us. Elizabeth also has terminal cancer. Anyway, here's the part of the interview, I love ...

OPRAH: In your book, you say, "Death looks different to someone who has placed a child in the ground."
ELIZABETH: It's not as frightening. If thee's an ever after -- please, please, please -- I would be leaving part of my family, but I can go and join another part, and wait for that day when we're all together again....

I fully agree.
