I have learned not to worry
about love but to honor its coming with all my heart.

No person is your friend who demands your silence, or denies your right to grow.
Our mothers and grandmothers, some of them moving to music not yet written. And they waited. ~ In Search of Our Mothers' Gardens
Live in freedom and joy, in love and surprise. ~ Cushion in the Road
No person is your friend (or kin) who demands your silence, or denies your right to grow and be perceived as fully blossomed as you were intended. Or who belittles in any fashion the gifts you labor so to bring into the world. ~ In Search of Our Mothers' Gardens
