  22. Hi Barb. This is such a beautiful post. There's been something wrong with blogspot comment function for days and I keep coming back to this post b/c I couldn't let it go without commenting. In fact, I love it so much I might just keep coming back anyway! Ordinary days (and minutes) make me happy too. You express it so beautifully.
