So, we've come to a very very busy weekend here at Casa de la Masses. About 100 relatives in from out of town to celebrate a surprise party for my father in law - he's 86 - a birthday party for Emma - she's five - houseguests and parties galore. I've scarcely got room to breathe the next few days. I've got brownies to make, towels to launder, cups and napkins to purchase, a cake to decorate, and some sleep to procure. Oh, and I've got to hit the alcohol store.
So, what better weekend to take my kids to the dentist?
Yeah, I'm slick that way.
I thought I'd share with you some of my favorite inspirational quotes. Let me know what you think of them, and tell me yours. Please ignore the stars and the thumbs up or down - I cut these quotes from a site, and can't figure out how to remove them. I'm kinda dense that way.
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 frightens us most. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and famous?' 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 people won't feel insecure around you. 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 all of us. And when we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
