Quote du jour/Maya Angelou


Sister, there were people who went to sleep last night, poor and rich and white and black, but they will never wake again. And those dead folks would give anything at all for just five minutes of this weather or ten minutes of plowing. So you watch yourself about complaining. What you're supposed to do when you don't like a thing is change it. If you can't change it, change the way you think about it.

  5. Very wise words ... guess I shouldn't keep complaining about the cold and rain and find something to enjoy about it! ♥
