Dear Maya Angelou, What Grace you had in the belief that their was a higher power as I believe you did. Higher power is Grace forgiveness and love.What courage you had to see that. As you said life is not a Rose Garden.We all are given on this planet a life to live and what ever we encounter, when we seek for Grace, Peace and understanding of others. enclose's us in a sense of being that we can work it out. Thank you. May the Heavens keep you in safe keeping.
