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

NY Thanksgiving 2009

Hello friends,

As many of you know, we spent the holiday in Upstate New York - Syracuse and Utica. We got the chance to meet our niece, Mimi for the first time. She is 9 months old and a baby doll. Her older brother, Manu is a bundle of energy and was quite the challenge with Chutes and Ladders! Grandma, Grandpa, David and I, and Manu all played and he was sooooo dramatic. Every time he spun he would put his hand to his forehead and say, " A four - what will I do with a four ( or five, etc)

My sister-in-law, Adzele (Ad-gel-e) and I did a crochet lesson and made granny squares. It was a blast!

David carved the turkey and we attended a pie party at the home of some longtime friends of my mother-in-law whose home has a Norwegian theme, hence the masks.


  1. What wonderful pictures. You must have had a really nice time with family.


  2. It was great fun; the traveling left lots to be desired though.

    The kids were hilarious!!
