Just some thoughts...

Every day, as I write Poetiquejustis, I pray it will be a blessing to someone.
Today, I hope it is you.

Within Arms Reach

I love to see a young girl go out and grab the world by the lapels
Maya Angelou

There are a lot of young women like that in my life

Daughters, and nieces and grand- nieces
cousins and friends

And from what I have seen so far,

My granddaughters will be the same-and then some

But the thing about these women is

That when they grab the world by the lapel

They look the world straight in the eye and say

"How can I help"
That's my girls
And that's poetiquejustis
She reaches out to the needy; she stretches out her hands to the poor.
Proverbs 31:20
