One of my all time favorite, favorite songs. And I think you have captured perfectly the "graces" we are given on a daily basis! I love this one!

Oh Mary Lee and Carol - how do you DO this? This photo is absolutely alive - and I love reading both and blending them in my head somehow too. My favorite song too - already requested for my funeral. xo
