When Great Souls Die

For this week’s Writer’s Quote Wednesday I have chosen a beautiful quote by Maya Angelou. Since she died 3 days after my daughter, Justine, passed away, her quotes were a great comfort to me. Many people were posting these beautiful words and they touched me profoundly.

I do strive every day to be a better person. Being strong, sympathetic, empathetic, loving, accepting, supporting, encouraging and kind are all ways I honour Justine.

She existed. She existed. I can be. Be and be better. For she existed.

Thank you Maya Angelou.

  2. Dear Cathy,

    What a beautiful soul Maya was. I am seeing her quotes everyday in fellow blogs and I am loving her more and more. How graceful and beautiful indeed. This quote so beautiful. I am glad that you and your family had solace with her quotes after Justine went away from you. ❤

    You express beautiful sentiments in this post which touch me deep. I hope to read more of Maya someday. Beautiful lady. Thanks for sharing.

    Anand 🙂
