I Am Enough

"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.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically
liberates others." ~ Marianne Williamson

Holiday Sweets

Hello friends,

I haven't written for a few days; things have been a little nuts with lots of homework, tests, the holidays, and other obligations.

Last weekend I held a holiday tea party with a cookie exchange and got some early Christmas gifts to boot!! This vintage Betty Boop is from my friend Robin, who found it at an estate sale. Isn't she darling??? I also got a Betty Boop apron - just love it!!!

Today we went downtown for the family fun festival as part of the Holiday Lights Festival. As a holiday gift to the city, various cultural landmarks - museums, the libraries, etc are open without admission and offer things like hot chocolate - particularly welcome today with -25 windchills!, stage coach rides on the Wells Fargo Bank stage coach, a chance to see the mounted police horses and training facility, ice skating, opera omaha and the symphony, the 50-ft Christmas tree at the old Union train station ( I remember going there with my grandfather to see the trains come and go - it is now a museum), holiday miniatures and the list goes on and on. You park at one of the venues and take shuttle buses to the remaining venues that you're interested in.
