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

Snowy Saturday

Hello friends,

I haven't posted much here this week and I can't really say that it's because I've been busy as much as it's because I've been enjoying my downtime. I've been spending time with friends, crocheting, trying to catch up on my e-mail, and just chilling before the next round of classes begin.

We got a pretty good snowstorm last night so it appears some of today's exercise will be shoveling. I think I"m going to sit tight today, watch a movie or two and crochet! I'll put a pot of soup on and take it easy today.

Southwestern Cauliflower and Ham Soup

"Serve hot with a slice of cheese bread. Enjoy!"


1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 (14.5 ounce) cans chicken broth
3 1/2 cups cauliflower florets
1 cup chopped cooked ham
1 1/2 cups shredded Pepper Jack cheese
1/4 cup potato flakes
5 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro ( I omit because I don't care for cilantro)

In a large pot over medium heat, cook onion in oil until just beginning
to brown. Pour in broth and bring to a boil. Stir in cauliflower, bring
to a boil again and cook until cauliflower is tender, 2 to 5 minutes.
Remove half of cauliflower mixture and puree in a blender or food
processor until smooth. Return to pot with ham and cheese and cook until
cheese is melted. Stir in potato flakes and heat through. Serve topped
with cilantro.

What are you going to do?


  1. Soup recipe sounds really good.
    I imagine having some downtime was something you needed.

    You have snow, and here today it was in the eighties. Such a difference in our weather. I think I would love living where it snowed. How high do the temperatures get in the summer where you are.

    I didn't do much of anything today. We went to dinner with daughter and son inlaw tonight. It was fun as always.

    Enjoy your self and relax before your classes start again.

    what are you crocheting now?


  2. I finished David's scarf, and am working on a wheelchair wrap (shawl) for the ministry. I should finish that tomorrow for sure. Then I want to spend some time putting some rows on the arrow stitch afghan for my mentor. I have some knitting that I want to learn as well. So many projects, not enough time lol!!!

    I'll post a pic of David's scarf on the blog in the morning.
