Saying Goodbye

In what should be the highlight of his life - the last few days before the November election - Senator Barack Obama spent today saying goodbye to his grandmother, Madelyn Dunham, who is gravely ill.

You can read all about it here at the New York Times....

Regardless of your politics, I think you'll agree, this has to be one of the most difficult times in his life.

I'm thinking of him and his family tonight. I know how hard it was to say goodbye to my grandma (dad's mom) - it's hard to believe she's been gone for 17 years (this fall); and say goodbye long-distance to my grandmother (mom's mom) - she died a few days before I had to head back to Kentucky for school.

Prayers to the Obama family. May you find a peace that only God can give you at this time.

    I remember your grandmother Elizabeth so well~ I sat at her table during my Camino experience. How fortunate you were to have her in your life.

    You are a strong wonderful woman yourself and when I look at you I can see her legacy. Peace, Love, and Joyful Blessings, Katie
