RIP Maya Angelou

I'm sure you've heard by now that renowned writer and poet Maya Angelou has died.
Her words have spoken to me for many years, in ways I can't explain.
My heart is heavy, but one of my favorite quotes is also singing in my ear.
"The ship of my life may or not be sailing on calm and amiable seas. The challenging days of my existence may or may not be bright and promising. Stormy or sunny days, glorious or lonely nights, I maintain an attitude of gratitude. If I insist on being pessimistic, there is always tomorrow.
I am blessed."
