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)

I'm not gone, really!

Having one of those "Holy Crap" times in my life. Had to cut off the cake orders for the week (can't take another order!) and it was only Wednesday morning and today, had to cut off the bread orders for the rest of the week. Like I said - Holy Crap!

This week (two actually) is just overwhelming at the bakery and at home. But it's exciting too. Our Girl Scout troop is wrapping up three years of working on our extreme Mini-Home Makeover (all day on Saturday) and I am so excited to be helping this family!

I am also excited to see the permanent mark that will be imprinted on my (13) girls' hearts for having done this project. We are helping to fix up and improve a home that is owned by a single mom whose (3) adult daughters live at home (18-24) with her adult son who has Down Syndrome and his good friend who also has Downs. The girls were sexually abused by their stepfather (who is now in jail) and then there's the taking care of two disabled men. Good times! Well, we just know this weekend is gonna make all the difference to their lives and I for one am excited to "Move that Bus"!! :o)

That's all I have in me for tonight. Just wanted to check in, get in touch, be moved by all the fantastic women in my blog world, and feel the power of all the wonderful women I am inspired by reading from and writing to!
