When we give of ourselves, we help to spread the light. I wanted to share with you today a gift my son made for Christmas that not only spreads the light but was one of the most thoughtful gifts I've ever seen. His girlfriend has a college degree in linguistics, and her senior thesis explored the relationships between the spoken word, poetry and music. My son found copies of some of the books that were quoted in her thesis, and used them to create a very special gift for her.
Her little light is going to shine brightly on her bedside table each night!
My hope for today is that we all find a way to spread the light--through a kind deed, a smile to someone who looks sad, sharing a laugh with a friend, or extending the hand of kindness. Have a wonderful Friday!
