Day 77 Sunday May 4th
My gorgeous nieces and nephew gave me this lovely candle for my birthday at the end of March. My youngest has been asking me when I’m going to light it. He couldn’t understand my reluctance but once it’s lit there is no going back……….it can’t be unlit!!!
He decided I was a hoarder, he had a point.
Today I decided that like life is for living gifts are to be enjoyed so I lit my candle. And! The world is still spinning and I got pleasure out of a beautiful gift and the thoughtfulness of those who gave it.
It isn’t the size of the gift that matters, but the size of the heart that gives it. ~Quoted in The Angels’ Little Instruction Book by Eileen Elias Freeman, 1994
