Day 197: Photo Blog #16

Saturday, July 16, 2011

I am running so far behind tonight t'ain't funny.

Today's assignment: "A picture of someone who inspires you."

There are quite a few people who inspire me. I don't think I'm at all in their league, but I sometimes use them as motivators to try harder. The one who stands out for me isn't with us anymore - Elizabeth Edwards.



This is one of the articles I bookmarked when she died:

I won't tell you what I think of him (!) but in my book, she was one courageous lady, right up to the bitter end. What an example for dealing with life's toughest blows, the epitome of grace under pressure.

Goodnight, Sparklers, wherever you are!

    My story is much like Elisabeth Edwarsds apart from some details... I have not (yet) died from my breastcancer and my digninified posture only lasted until the father sued me for the daughter - after that I do not bevae lovingly because I hurt too much... it is wonderful that there are people like Elizabeth Edwards, but for the ones that canĀ“t do the same I have no judgement (today) -not for the man either, I realise that my ex could not do better than he did and I guess the same goes for mr Edwards.
