My favorite quote (or reminder as I like to think of them)...

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.” (Marianne Williamson - A Return to Love)

Family Luvin'

My niece moved out of her family house and in with my dad and step mom this past 2 weeks. I have missed her so much over the past 18 years that when I am not with her now, it hurts more than it did when I would go for months and months without seeing or talking to her (not by our choice). So today, I am thankful that the pain of missing her is one that is fleeting and will, or rather, CAN be relieved at just about any ol' time I can make an 8 minute commute to love her! And I am grateful for nieces and nephews that have filled my heart, head and life with more joy than I can ever, EVER, possibly express here or to anyone in words.
