In Others’ Words: Light the Flame
This quote encompasses two life-changers for me: other people and gratitude.
If I tried to list all the people who have rekindled my spark when it has gone out … well, this would be the never-ending blog post — and I’m certain I would still forget someone.
People have prayed for me, shared hugs at just the right moment, spoken an uncannily timely word … and sometimes they’ve just been there when my soul’s ached and my heart’s flame flickered.
And the year I devoted to practicing gratitude? That year changed me on a soul-deep level. This glass-half-empty gal determined to give thanks in all things. I wrote thank you lists to God — and you know what? My perspective changed. I saw all the reasons I had to be grateful. The glass overflowed.
So yes, Albert Schweitzer got it right: we should be thankful for those who have “lighted the flame within us.”
In Others’ Words: I say this with all sincerity, friends: Your comments encourage me daily. Thank you. My prayer is that you are surrounded with others who rekindle your flame with words of hope and affirmation.
