Great thought

At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.
- Albert Schweitzer

Who has continually lit the flame within me?

My childhood friend Kristin Fielding
My mother
My brother in law Nic Delgado
My husband
Mandy Steward
A religion professor Gerald Hansen

Special moments when the Lord has rekindled it through promptings of the spirit or the scriptures.
Various random people throughout my life that said or did one thing that change my perspective, showed me an incredible example, or made me want to change.

Thank you. I am who I am because of you.
