Happy Birthday Maya Angelou

Just a quick hit and run post this morning.  I start each morning on my Facebook page with a quote that reflects what I am thinking about for the morning.  Dr. Maya Angelou wrote many things that I find inspiring and I find that I am often drawn to her writing when looking for just that quote that stirs me.  On this day, which would have been her 90th birthday, I found this quote which applies to so many of us with chronic illnesses:

“You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.” 

I hope each of you rises above your challenges today and takes strength in knowing you are not alone.
