I had some 1 on 1 time talking to Ava, Landon and Stone about their new cousin and prepare them for Liv's arrival. Ava (6yrs) asked me if Liv would speak English or French. I explained to her that Liv would learn to speak English but that she was from Africa and she said "wow" I don't even know what that sounds like, is it "go goo, ga gaaa?" I smiled and said, "yeah Liv is going to get to teach both of us a lot of new things." I feel so lucky to have these little ones in our life.
Liv's precious cousins - Landon, Ava and Stone
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 is 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 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 as quoted by Nelson Mandela in is '94 Inaugural Speech). I love you both.
P.S. You are NEVER, EVER...EVER allowed to take me to the Syndicate Lounge again! xoox.
