Little things.......................

November 1, 2015 - This little moonstone egg brings me joy.  All it takes is a little light to make it glow.  I have it in my kitchen window and every time I see it, I think of the friend who gave it to me.  That would be Ann.  She was with me at the rock and gem show in Greenfield and I commented on how beautiful it was.  When we were all ready to leave, she said, "Aren't you going to get that egg?"  I thought: "Sure.  Why not."  But when I went to purchase it, the lady said she had just sold it.  I was disappointed but I also had a feeling Ann was the purchaser and her intent was to surprise me on my birthday.  I was right on both counts.  What a lovely egg.  What a lovely friend.
 This is the same egg on the left without the light.  I think our purpose in life is to be light.  We've all heard:

You Light up my life.
You are the Light of my life.
Go to the Light.

(Any more?)  Anyway, being a light for someone can be so important.  A simple act, such as a smile, can truly have a profound effect on another and light up their day.

Another favorite "light" connection for me is a poem given to me by a Native American Grandmother.  I included it on the union square of my sacred quilt. I feel we need "light" (truth) in any union we have. 

With Love I call forth the Light
With Joy I open to the Light
With Wisdom I accept the Light
With Peace I am the Light
