“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.”
~Nelson Mandela

Let's Do it!

Okay Ladies.....Let's do this! I am so excited to read this book. Kristi, I did hear it was really really long but that just makes me want to read it more. Some books you start and never want it to end so this will keep us busy for a while. Em, I bet you would love this! I will call Steph because I talked to her the other day and she said she couldn't get on the blog. She is on the waiting list for her Internet hook-up.
I am going to get on amazon and order it today................. BTW Kristi, I loved that shirt you ordered from Layers. Have you guys checked out that Garnet Hill website? I just ordered the catalog. SO cute...a bit pricey on some things but I loved their suits too.
Molly It was good to talk to you the other day. I am COUNTING down the days to see you all....seriously.

Go back

Hey guys...Go back to that post I was telling you about http://thegabblog.blogspot.com/2008/04/just-for-record.html
Read the comments.....there were over a hundred comments and two people were sharing different opinions.I just thought it was interesting. I loved the post because I felt like this girl was pointing out that we are NOT affiliated with the FLDS but boy I love to always see the other view points of people as well. I did agree with her about extending our hand out but...you go check it out....

What to read???

Hey girls,

Have you read The Confessions of a Slacker Mom by Muffy Mead-Ferro? It is a fun, short and easy read. I knew I was a slacker mom, but she makes you feel like it is A-o.k and that the type A, everything and everyone has to be perfect moms, are just darn right ridiculous! I would recommend it! I was looking at our list of reads. There are so many to choose from. I would love some input on what to read next! Please tell me which book you think is a must read! Fill me in on what you are all reading now! Happy reading!

Steph it was great talking to you the other day, I hope you got to your doctors appointment on time. I made your white chili and Jake was in HOG HEAVEN. It was fabulous! I have another recipe but I may chuck that one and keep yours now. Once your new schedge starts let me know we'll do a little Gee-Tarh with Schmem!
