light a candle for spring returning

How might your life have been different, if, through the years, there had been a place where you could go?...a place of women, away from the ordinary busy-ness of life...a place of women who knew the cycles of life, the ebb and flow of nature, who knew of times of work and times of quiet...who understood your tiredness and need for rest.

A place of women who could help you to accept your fatigue and trust your limitations, and to know, in the dark of winter, that your energy would return, as surely as the spring.

Women who could help you learn to light a candle and to wait...

How might your life be different?

Once again... your posts are deeply touching! How've you been? (I've been away for awhile).

This is beautiful and just what I need today, a day of fatigue and limitations.
