Favorite Quote:
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, and 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 are all meant to shine, as children do. We are 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


A family gives you unconditional love,
Strength and guidance they got from above
They listen when you need an ear
And one thing is they always care
When you need a hand
They'll lend you theirs
If you're crying they'll wipe your tears
If you need comfort, you know where to go
Their love is never hidden it is always shown
They always boast about you to anyone they meet
Family, friends and even strangers on the street
A family is precious and kind
A family is truly divine
A family is God's gift to everyone
They are what make your house your home
To be appreciated you don't have to go far
Because your family loves you for who you are


The author's comments:
I don't remember when I wrote this but I posted this first because a lot of people love it; for their own reason.
When I wrote it, I intended to mean that's what I wish I had. I've seen others use it to describe how awesome their family is, which is fine.
