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

Winter Wonderland Blizzard 2009

Hello friends from the frozen tundra!

We are still digging out after a foot of snow was dumped on us Tuesday through Wednesday. Some places have 5 foot drifts. We were let out of school, work dismissed us early and the drive home was awful. We had a late start at work Wednesday and David and I made it in OK, but one of my coworkers lives in IA and he headed out to work, forgot his cell phone, slid into a ditch and waited 4 hours for help. The state patrol and the National Guard found him because the snow plows had been pulled off that highway during the time he was waiting.

Three days later and our street still isn't plowed; we're parking 6 blocks away and walking from the house to the car. At least the home is warm and we are safe; that's what really counts.
