Still We Rise

rise

Here’s my vow to you. I may not like the way things are going, but I’m no quitter. No matter how I feel, I’ll be back tomorrow and the day after and the day after that and all the days.

Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I’ll rise.

-Maya Angelou

Love and peace and resilience to us all.

I have committed to spending part of every day looking for at least one beautiful thing, and sharing what I find with you lovelies!

  7. These feel like bleak and desperate and dark times and so I shall repeat my gratitude to you for posting about beautiful, wonderful, cheering things each day. It is important to remember that thoroughly good, decent people and brightness and light exist in this world even if the darkness is trying to envelop it. Thank you for all that you do with your uplifting thoughts and voice.
