At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.
~ Albert Schweitzer
And then, seemingly out of the blue, someone enters your life and you get that flame back. It may take a little while to even realize it.
But when you do...
I know, it's crazy how energized you suddenly seem!
I recently thanked someone for having faith in me when I didn't have it in myself. I was told to "stop it." The person didn't want acknowledgement that they had made a difference in my way of thinking. I told them anyway. Several times. So they could own it and understand that I was indeed very grateful.
And then, of course, this song came on.
