Did you know that one, small birthday candle is so bright it cannot be doused by the darkness of all nights -forever? So the light in your heart -no matter how small at times- is so resilient that even your darkest days cannot conquer it. Yet we are at choice, aren’t we? We can ignore our joy and focus instead on despair, and then our hope fades into invisibility. But paying attention to pleasure, celebrating our accomplishments, admitting how much we are loved, talking to a friend; these make our lights grow until they will brighten even the darkest corners of our minds. Today I go into the garden and look at the amazing colors; I look at the sky and I try to imagine painting its blue and its clouds, and I realize I am watching a miracle. Today I think of you and the light within me smiles.
