Maya Angelou 1928-2014
photoToday and yesterday, as I read about the phenomenal life of Dr. Angelou it was easy to compare my life with hers and come up wanting. I suspected she would not be pleased with me for that behavior. Thank goodness my search for a quote for Nurturing Thursday led me to this beautiful image with the words I needed to hear. I hope they have meaning for you as well.  Feel free to grab it up if you feel so moved.

      1. Great idea, Carol ~ I’m thinking of filling an art sketchbook with beautiful quotes, illustrating them myself, then posting the photographs. Of course, that may take some time! 🙂


  1. What a wonderful quote…I need to keep that in mind, that’s for sure! She was such a remarkable woman and offered us, so many deeply insightful and encouraging thoughts…a true treasure.
