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)

Room Full of Love

Today I am so grateful for afternoon delights! Not the kind you are thinking of, but rather one filled with more love than a room can hold!

After we closed the bakery on Sunday, I met Jeanne, Rhonda, and Chelley at the Woodhouse Day Spa (my fav'!) for an afternoon of luvin' and rubbin'. We sat in the tea room and drank a little tea (and wine, and champagne, and water, and...) and noshed a bit and then had a little pampering and back to the tea room. Just four best friends celebrating the life of Jeanne's Daddy and our love for each other over the span of 30 plus years.

We ALL got to hold her (and each other) and surround her with the white light of our unconditional love and no afternoon has been that important to me in a long, long time. I couldn't be there as much as I wanted to last Saturday, but we got to all be there for Jeanne for an uninterrupted afternoon, and that is more than I could have ever asked for. I highly recommend to anyone who is at a loss for how to hold some one's heart to do nothing more than surround them with your love. Well, the white chocolate scones didn't hurt either!

    Here's to the white light of love, and sisterhood, and white chocolate scones.
