Grateful Wisdom from Maya Angelou

Free as the swan

Free as the swan

On The International Day for the End of Violence of Women, I share a grateful quote from Maya Angelou who experienced violence against her from an early age from the men in her life, and who found her voice and overcame those experiences. Her story can be found in the book, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings.

When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed.

    One aspect of this photograph that I appreciate is how the swan is watching over her swanlings. What a beautiful image of God’s protective care.
