Short and Sweet

22 Sep

This has been an super busy week for us and I’ve been a little short on time to write in this here little blog.

By the way. I just have to say how much I love you guys. I really do. You are so encouraging and kind and just all around wonderful. Thank you so much for coming here every day or every week or every so often and reading what’s in my heart and on my mind. Thank you for caring about me and how things are going with my cancer treatment. Thank you for commenting, sending emails, calling, and sending cards. I appreciate every single good wish you are sending my way and am forever grateful for all of the prayers you are lifting up on my behalf.

Ok, now where were we? Right, not having much time to write this week. The great part about that is it means I’ve felt well enough to be too busy to write! Yay!! :) I’ve probably felt the best the past two days as I have any days since the last treatment. That mild queasy feeling that is usually with me has not been around lately – woohoo!!!

Anyway, because I haven’t had much time to write, I thought today I would let someone else do the writing and share with you one of my favorite quotes by  Marianne Williamson:

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 frightens us most. We ask ourselves, “Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and famous?” 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 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. And when 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.

I just love this. Who are we NOT to be everything we CAN be??

Just something to think about on this Thursday.

Oh, here’s a random thought, have you guys seen the movie, Invictus? It’s about Nelson Mandela’s first term as President of South Africa and how he and the South African Springboks rugby team united a country during the 1995 Rugby World Cup. It’s a really great movie, very inspiring.

I thought you might like to know that Pumpkin has been very busy this week, too. Busy doing what he does best! Is that a lot of fur, or what??

Hope you have a wonderful day!!
