the day, the hour, and the minute

“I want to thank you, Lord, for life and all that’s in it.
Thank you for the day and for the hour, and the minute. ”

– Maya Angelou

Adding my voice to the choir celebrating Maya Angelou, who crossed the bar this week.  Hers was an extraordinary voice and life, and in reading tributes to her I’ve learned how very many peoples’ voices she enabled, inspired, and made room for.  Thank you to my friend Amanda Magee who shared these beautiful lines, which I’d never heard before.
