Life Lessons from Maya Angelou 2: On GRATITUDE

Today we learn from Maya Angelou’s wise words on gratitude. These are excerpts from “Dr. Maya Angelou’s: On Being in her 80’s”— an interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Maya declares: “In every age I’ve been grateful!”

“Be grateful – just
Get up in the morning “Thank you Lord, thank you for this day.
Thank you for the light
coming hrough that window.
Thank you.
Thank you that I’m breathing.
Thank you.
Thank you for everything.
Thank you for the phone call
that told me that I have the job.
Thank you even for the phone call
that told me I’m not wanted anymore.
Thank you because I know you have something better for me lined up. Thank you!”

In conversation with Oprah..
Whatever it is that hits, say thank you. You know God has put a rainbow on the cloud for you!
