Maya Angelou

If you read this blog at all, you will notice that the first sentence in my "About Me" blurb is a quote from Maya Angelou.  It is one that has defined my life....from where I have decided to worship to what I have learned from being suddenly single again.  In case you haven't actually read it, I am posting it here so it can be seen front and center:

When I first heard this quote, I knew that there were things in my life that I needed to do better.  There were also things in my life I knew that I had also done better.  Maya Angelou always had the most insightful things to say.  She was wise and educated.  She loved to teach and to mentor young people.  She loved to help women understand that they don't have to be walked all over by men.

Maya Angelou was only the second poet to ever recite a poem at a presidential inauguration.  She was well respected by many.  She will be missed by this world.  We lost a marvelous soul today.
