Today I read on Elizabeth Foss' blog that Barbara Curtis had a serious stroke and is not expected to regain consciousness. I haven't read Barbara's blog in quite some time or followed it regularly for several years, but still the news brought me to tears. I first "met" Barbara when she posted a comment in 2005 on an old blog of mine, saying she appreciated my take on an article we both had read and inviting me to read her take on it. I read her regularly for some time, finding her such an encouraging voice as I, a new Christian, tried to figure out how to talk about God to my then three year old daughter. Her words, especially in her book Lord, Please Meet Me in the Laundry Room, gave me a new and richer perspective on my life as a mother. Tonight I am praying for Barbara and her family, and I hope you will do so as well.
