Candle In The Window

I've always liked the simple things.

Knock yourself out if you want to decorate out the wahzoo. But, for me, I prefer just a few things.

A tree maybe for Christmas. A wreath on the door, which could vary with the season. One of the most soulful expressions for me is a single candle in the window.

It's an old gesture for those away. Lit in the hope of return, it was meant as a welcome home for someone finally returning. This is the meaning near and dear to my heart.

It is a sign of hope, warmth, love. Good things to remember not just at this time of year, but always.

May a way home and love on every level find their ways into our hearts.
