    Child of mine, I will never do for you that which I know you can do for yourself. I will never rob you of an opportunity to show yourself your ability and talent. I will see you at all times as the capable, effective, powerful creator that you've come forth to be. And I will stand back as your most avid cheerleading section. But I will not do for you that which you have intended to do for yourself. Anything you need from me, ask. I'm always here to compliment or assist. I am here to encourage your growth, not to justify my experience through you."

    ~ Esther Abraham-Hicks

    “My life has taught me that there is a wealth of strength within us, there is nothing we cannot handle. Life presents it’s purpose and beauty in all sorts of ways. The trick is to stay open to one’s strength, to not deny or strive to prove it, but rather to simply have it.”

    ~ Matthew Sanford

    "Never apologize for how you feel. No one can control how they feel. The sun doesn’t apologize for being the sun. The rain doesn’t say sorry for falling. Feelings just are."

    A true friend encourages us, comforts us, supports us like a big easy chair, offering us a safe refuge from the world.

    To all of those men and women that gave the ultimate sacrifice - their life - for me and my country.

    I am forever grateful and thankful.

    The petals of a lotus are arranged in concentric layers, and when the lotus blooms, each one opens in succession to reveal the ones inside. This gradual opening in stages has been used as a metaphor to describe how we attain higher levels of self-realization and consciousness as we progress spiritually.
