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

Tree Is Up

The tree is up and yep, the tree topper is unique this year. We realized that we may have thrown out the lighted star last year when we got rid of the ratty old tree. Soooooooo, the Christmas Elf will have to stand in. Give me reason to crochet something new for the tree, I suppose.

I look forward to the traditions of this time of year - even the extreme annoyance tradition of untangling the lights, putting them on the tree, playing "let's find the burnt out bulb", etc. The warmth of the way it looks when it's done is worth it.

  1. Your tree is beautiful. There is nothing like Christmas lights on the tree to make a room look warm and beautiful.
