Embracing the Journey

Yesterday it was pouring rain when I left a friend’s house. I got drenched again running from the car to my front door. Once inside, I stripped off wet clothes, lit candles in every room, put on the tea kettle, and ran a hot bath.

After a luxurious soak, I tied my bathrobe around my waist, put spaghetti on to cook, and poured myself a glass of wine.

Outside, rain drummed on the windowpane. Inside, a flickering candle illuminated the cheery yellow of chrysanthemums, highlighting them against the jewel purple of the hand towel hanging nearby.

This, I thought to myself. This moment of happiness, this tiny joy. This.

    the warmth of the candle signifying the warmth of the beautiful memory made. The refreshing water cleansing and cleansing again.
    what a wonderful way to use the candles to shine the light of clarity and love on all that is revealing itself.
    love, dear friend, love
