Light a Candle: Fight the Down Days

When the day is dark, and I feel cold or down, I light a candle in every room.

 

As the scent fills my house, I remember.

I remember to count my blessings

I remember to pray.

I remember to love the moment.

I remember.

 

When I pause to gaze at the flickering light, I remember.

I remember to count my blessings

I remember to pray.

I remember to love the moment.

I remember.

 

When I feel down and the day seems dark, I light a candle, and everything seems a little brighter.

Fight the down days: light a candle and remember.

    Oh my gosh! I do this too. I did it a lot in my hard times last year. I’d light candles in my room and sit there watching them, and a lot of the time i’d play music softly too. It is SO relaxing 🙂

    Hope you are having a splendid week, Kelly.

      Yeah, there is something at watching the flames flicker that is so soothing. And music is awesome.

    I have oil that I burn and music that I play. Might find myself a little candle as well :).

      Scented oil is a wonderful calmer isn’t it. And I love pumping music, on all occasions.

    Excellent idea Kelly! And one I think I need to use at our house. It is so hectic all the time around here, that a tiny bit of peace and calm would be very welcome 🙂
