who are we NOT to be fabulous?

I am beautiful.
So are my daughters.
My family.
My friends.
My husband.
My son.
My daughter was hurt recently.
as a mother.
We are the ones to LIFT, to protect, to raise them up to see their beauty. To help them see the diamonds they are.
When their "Temple" is crushed {so to speak}
or belittled
by the ones who are suppost to love and respect them as a daughter of god.
This is where " us Mothers" step in.
I want to raise STRONG, confident, beautiful on the inside daughters.
Charlee is only 1 1/2 {but i can still start now}
I have had a wakeing this past year.
and when we had Cuzins Kamp my parents gave each family this SAYING to put in our homes as a reminder that
I read this to myself and my family and daughters OFTEN.........
brings tears to my eyes....
thats why I put it in our entry way!
We are powerful beyond measure.
and so are us MOTHERS!
{read it slow and think about each sentance.}
then----you quickly think......its time to GET TO WORK!
some people think you can't change.
but im a firm believer that you can be anything you want to be.
and its NEVER TO LATE!


"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear in 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 enlightening about shrinking so that other people won’t feel unsure around you.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone.
As we let our own Light shine,we consciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,our presence automatically liberates others."

~ Marianne Williamson

You are just oozing with inspiration; I love it! Love those quotes and I agree 100%. I do want to have a photo shoot with my new little bundle and maybe my other 3 kiddos; I was planning on paying for it though.....(come on people, pay your attorney, or hire him to do something for you so I can have some FUN! LOL) What should they wear? Seriously. Give me some ideas.....

Go Girl! Tell me again why we are not sisters? We are so much alike.

Thank you for the inspiration that you give to me every time I visit.

I'll be back
