Light from Within...

"People are like stained-glass windows. 
They sparkle and shine when the sun is out,
but when the darkness sets in,
their true beauty is revealed
only if there is a light from within."

- Elizabeth Kubler-Ross

I happened to notice this bottle capturing the fading sunlight just right. Although the room was darkened in deep afternoon shadows, the beauty was undeniable and inspirational. This is the gift of a life lived beautifully from the inside out... a place where age is of no significance except to expose what is most  graceful.

That is beautiful what you said about age, Karen. I've seen this quote before, and I liked it so much. I think I am going to write it down to always remember. That bottle is so pretty and unique. I hope you're enjoying your weekend.

This is so beautiful! I'm going to copy this thought and hang it on my board. Thanks Karen!
