Globe Article on a Local Food Blogger Who's Very Ill

Bella English of the Globe posted an article today about Carolyn Grantham, who is behind the LimeyG blog and is ailing. So sad, but also so incredibly inspiring. I'll definitely be praying for her.

      I was sobbing in my office after you posted it on FB. Heartbreaking and inspiring at the same time.

        Terribly heartbreaking but heartwarming, as well.

    2. Oh to be that brave. My heart is with her. Thanks for posting that HB.

      1. Carolyn is a friend and I can attest to the fact that she's awesome. Also hilarious. Be sure to visit her blog (which is referred to frequently in the Globe article). Lots of great info in her earlier restaurant/food posts, and some amazing stories of what she's been through over the past several years:

        1. Love to Carolyn and Diego.

          1. Perhaps the best possible honor to Carolyn would be to raise a glass to her as we mindfully enjoy a meal. And, to appreciate the food put before us with more awareness that someday we may not be able to enjoy it as we do today.
            Living each moment as if it were our last could be her legacy to all of us who love food.

            Thinking of you, Limey and I do appreciate your posts over the years.

              Lovely, Penny. Thanks for that.

                Thank you, Penny, for a lovely tribute to Carolyn and such loving advice on how to honor her, her love of food, her love of life, and her response to dealing with such difficulty. She has touched so many people in a profound manner. I hope that gives her some strength (although she has so much already) knowing that so many are with her, inspired by her, and that we are all sending her golden light and best wishes.

                If there is some way to contribute to her expenses, and to her legacy, I hope someone will post about it.
