      I have admired this woman forever. She couldn't be more brilliant. I would consider it an honor to simply be in her presence.... to "soak up" all her L❤VE and wisdom ~ to bask in the warmth of her smile.... We miss you Maya.

    Maya Angelou quot, WELL SAID

    "The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen." *Elisabeth Kubler-Ross ~ Maya Angelou

    Dr. Maya Angelou..."Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away".

    If you are always trying to be normal you will never know how amazing you can be. ~Maya Angelou

    President Obama gives Maya Angelou the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian honor in the land. A well deserved award, and a particularly poignant moment captured on film.

    Pretty women wonder where my secret lies. I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size But when I start to tell them, They think I'm telling lies. I say, It's in the reach of my arms The span of my hips, The stride of my step, The curl of my lips. I'm a woman Phenomenally. Phenomenal woman, That's me. I walk into a room Just as cool as you please, And to a man, The fellows stand or Fall down on their knees. Then they swarm around me, A hive of honey bees. I say, ...

    Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it. ~Maya Angelou

    My great hope is to laugh as much as I cry; to get my work done and try to love somebody and have the courage to accept the love in return. ~Maya Angelou.
