Light a Candle

“You can curse the darkness or light a candle”

Such a small but very profound statement. With the Christmas Holiday just ahead of us, just about every home lights up with candles, Christmas trees, outdoor lights, etc. It's a tradition that speaks volumes in it's analogy of life. I think we all are drawn to light and it lifts our spirits on short winter days.
I just came home from my Great-Nephew's Birthday party and saw how his sweet little face lit up when he saw the candle flame. He tried his darnedest to grab the flame in his pudgy hand. I think our fascination with light doesn't dim when we grow up.
