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)

Shame on Me

I should have grounded myself. Shame on me. My Momma called to chat a few days ago, and I took her call, but here's the thing....we were 1/3 of the way into a movie when she called. So I kinda "blew her off".

How dare I? How is a movie more important than talkin' with your Momma? How many of you don't even have your Mommas and I just dismissed mine. Uggh.

It made me cry that I did that. It's MORE proof that I am still busy DOING instead of BEING. F. I'm still ticked that I behaved in such a manner and I pray that I never do again.

What has our life come to when we don't have, or rather, don't TAKE the time to be in relation with the people that mean the most to us. I'm sorry Ma (although, ironically, she doesn't ever read my blog!) :o). I'm sorry I found something more important than you because, truth be told, there isn't. Anything.

And I accept my punishment...I'm SO in a time-out! 'Cept on this sentence, I get to have as many phone calls as I want!

  1. The thing about moms is they pretty much always forgive their kids. I bet you won't have to sit in the naughty chair for long before your momma will be calling to offer you, the baker, some milk and cookies!
