It was a year ago today that my beloved cat passed away and this morning her loss hit me like an oncoming train...it was the strangest thing. I know it's only a matter of time before my faithful dog's time comes, so I intend to cherish him more than ever...and he's not all I cherish. There is darkness within me...there is pain...and there is fear...pain from the past...and fear of the future. These are the true powers of darkness...but as Matthew Stover once said: Darkness has one weakness...one candle is enough to hold it back.
I have more than just a candle...I've met eight extraordinary "lights".
Each of you has made a difference in my life, big or small. On the road of life, our paths will likely differ...but you are in my thoughts...now and forever.
You are what lights the darkness.
