family who happen to be friends :)

the last staff meeting we had at our staff, I sat back and smiled listening to him.
and then leaned over and told her "I just love him.  he's a good man."
he regularly quotes things like this now:
“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.”

and yes, he's still the sometimes annoying, flicking giant little brother.
but he's also my friend and I love and admire who he is and who he's becoming. :)
and her?
I could go on and on about her.  I really like her.  and am so happy he has her.
she's beautiful, compassionate, witty, funny and someone I like to call my friend. :)
plus, I get inspired by her creatively and love to stalk her company/blog linny jane vintage.
win for me. :)

yup, this was a fun session to hang out with them and just enjoy being outside

with family who also happens to be my friends. :)
