    thank you.

  2. I loved #321, wanting to underline, highlight, etc. . . . I know just how you feel. I found it so hard to read slow and deliberate, to the point I just did a nonstop read through it first, then went back for the "soak" time. I loved your whole list today. I felt your peace and quiet spirit! Thank you for that!
