I Still Have a Lot to Learn!!

Oprah interviewed Maya Angelou not so long ago, Maya was turning 70 plus years old.  Oprah asked her what she thought of growing older.  Maya said it was “exciting.”  Regarding body changes, she said there were many occurring every day. . .like her “girls” (if you know what I mean).  They seem to be in a race to see which will reach her waist first.

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 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 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.”

Maya Angelou as a way with words.  As far as I am concerned her observations are correct.  What a woman.
