    Candle Lighting Site - Share Thoughtfulness

    From time to time (more often than not) we have friends who are dealing with most difficult situations. Though there usually is little we can do to help, the idea of lighting a candle provides all of us an opportunity to focus on them and to offer a prayer or send good thoughts. I hope it lets them know how much we love them. I know it lets us feel like we are somehow holding their hands.

    It also can help reassure us if we are the ones facing the challenge...I like the idea that there is a little light illuminating the darkness as a reminder that there is someone who sure could use a hug and some healing!

    We are in the "F2F" Group.
