Christmas with Maya Angelou… “I know why the caged bird sings”

by | Dec 22, 2021

I start each day with my favorite quote from Maya Angelou 💕 “There is no greater agony than bearing the untold story inside you.”

Years ago now it seems when Maya first touched my soul, I heard her sing this beautiful poem to my soul. It touched me deeply…

For most of my life like so many others we know, bottle up pain, and more pain, piled on for too many precious years of living with the “untold story.”

My Heart ❤ hurts for them and their families, especially the little ones. This unspeakable emotional pain and trauma lives on for generations without empathy and compassion…

As Maya would say, “the very first step in healing hearts and souls of families during the Christmas season is forgiveness. If we start with forgiveness then we start to heal. We start to love again.”

As you sit by the fireplace this Christmas, near your Christmas tree. As you hold and love your little ones, each other and furry loved one, forgive each other, especially you…

When this happens, “the untold stories” will be revealed with love and kindness, no less. The healing begins. The intergenerational cycle of emotional pain is broken. Love and healing returns once again…
