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


I pledge allegiance to a friend
To stick by them until the end
To never step out but always step up
Whenever push comes to shove

I pledge allegiance to a friend
To stick by them until the end
To always lend my hand when needed
And walk beside them, not follow or lead

I pledge allegiance to a friend
To stick by them until the end
To always shelter them from a storm
And mend their hearts whenever torn

I pledge allegiance to a friend
To stick by them until the end
Keep their secrets and memories in my heart
And treasure them from the very start

I pledge allegiance to a friend
To stick by them until the end
To never leave them out in the cold
And always have my shoulder ready

I pledge allegiance to a friend
To stick by them until the end
To go to Haven and wait for them
And to tell God have the gates open for them
