600. There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it. ~Edith Wharton

A
candle 
loses
nothing
by lighting
another candle.

Light a candle in your soul,
And carry with you in the dark.
If you see a flame that’s lost its glow
Let yours supply the spark.
For a flame grows only brighter
When it gives to another of its light.

Believe in yourself in the depths of your being,
Nourish the talents your spirit is freeing.
Know in your heart when the going gets slow,
That your faith in yourself will continue to grow.
Don’t give up your dreams though others may have doubt,
It’s your life to live, you must delight in it throughout.
So learn from your errors, don’t dwell in the past,
And never withdraw from a world that’s vast.
Believe in yourself, find the best that is you,
Let your spirit prevail, steer a course that is true.

    • Matthew, Matthew, Matthew, you are such a bright light shining in the darkness of this fallen world. And you do it in the midst of your own trials. It’s your light makes me want to make mine shine even brighter. Much, much love!!! Natalie ❤

    • I try to be a trooper. Some days are harder than others to be one. I’m coping for the moment and the doc is going to inject cortisone in both knees on Monday to see if that helps. My other knee has started hurting some because it has been bearing most of the weight for a year now. It’s not ready for a knee replacement and I hope that will keep it going. Thanks for your prayers. Love’n hugs, N ❤

  3. Natalie, I know you are hurting physically, but your spirit shines bright.  I cherish your thoughts in Sacred Touches and share them with others quite often.  Thank you for being a source of inspiration and for reminding me to shine, to laugh, and to appreciate the world around me.
