...Just like moons and like suns
With the certainty of tides
Just like hopes springing high
Still I'll rise..."

 "When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, 
everyone is blessed."

 "I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt in both hands;
you need to be able to throw something back." ~Maya Angelou

~Maya Angelou 

Thank you, Maya, 
for all the insight,
wisdom, beauty, strength and inspiration 
you and your amazing words have given me.
 May your words live on into eternity.
  You are one of those who taught me
how to always beautifully.
Maya Angelou,
