You are a child of God

My littlest girl turns eight this week. 

What a joy and amazing ray of sunshine she is in our family.
I think of her at two, learning her first song and singing "You Are My Sunshine."
My favorite line was: "....You make me happy, when skies are Gracie..." 
That's how she sang it. 

Stinkin' adorable!

Thoughtful Message:

Our greatest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our greatest 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, talented, fabulous?" 
Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. 
Your playing small doesn't serve the world. 
There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. 
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 all of us.
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.
