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)

Article on Our Silver Award Project

My friend Mary reminded me that I didn't really share this with everyone yet. Our Girl Scout troop wrapped up their three years of working on our Silver Award project by remodeling, cleaning, organizing, etc. the home of a single mom, her three daughters (ages 18-24), her son who has Down Syndrome and his best friend who also has Downs.

They have been through a VERY rough past few years and I couldn't be more proud of what our troop and their families have done for this family. Truly amazing! Here is the link to the article written in the local paper. PLEASE make sure to click on and view the videos as Rudy and Ryan's reactions are so fantastic!!!
