EMAIL FROM MY MOM-IN-LAW


Don't break the elastic!




 In April, Maya Angelou was interviewed by Oprah on her 70+ birthday.
Oprah asked her what she thought of growing older.
And, there on television, she said it was 'exciting...'




Regarding body changes, she said there were many, occurring every
 day.....like her breasts. They seem to be in a race to see which will
reach her waist, first The audience laughed so hard they cried. She is
 such a simple and honest woman, with so much wisdom in her words!
 Maya Angelou said this:
I've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today,
 life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow.'
 'I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she
 handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled
 Christmas tree lights.'
'I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents,
 you'll miss them when they're gone from your life.'
 'I've learned that making a 'living' is not the same thing as making a life.'
 'I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance.'
'I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt
 on both hands; you need to be able to throw some things back...'
'I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I
 usually make the right decision..'
'I've learned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one..'
'I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone.
 People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back...'
> 'I've learned that I still have a lot to learn..'

 'I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will
 forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them
feel.'

  1. Wow... I'm speechless, yet I absolutely want to leave you a note. To tell you how inspirational this was, to thank you for sharing it with me, with us.

    There were so many things to ponder... I think I'll have to be back to take it all in, and well.

    I try to reach out to others every day. If nothing else, just a friendly smile. That is my most important goal for a day.

    Kiitos viela kommentistasi liittyen mun nettiepisodiin! Olin jutusta hammentynyt. Siita, etta julkisesti puidaan tosi henk.koht. ja kipeitakin asioita. Nyt jupakka on jo unohtumaan pain:)

    Sending you cooling hugs since dear hubby keeps checking out NY temps, and keeps telling me how high they continue to fly this summer... Seemingly they never came down after our departure!
