Ethan and Dallin had their first season games this past Saturday. Dallin played 2 - lost both; Ethan played one - lost. Oh well, such is life!
The rain situation is so bad! We haven't mowed our lawn in about 2 months - we haven't needed to! The 'grass' on the lawn was a little longer than the 'grass' in the pasture (I am using the word 'grass' loosely - I would say the stuff on the ground is more like crusty weeds!) so we let the cows out and had them eat the stuff on the lawn. What is left is shorter than we've ever mowed it! There is a possibility of rain this week - we are all hoping and praying that it pours!
I found this quote and thought I'd share:
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, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. 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.
