Honoring those who have given us a hand…

This year at our 3rd Annual Women Inspiring Women Conference we wanted to pay a special honor to those who have helped us in our journey.  I chose the quote by Albert Schweitzer that says: “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.”


The plaque then listed the names of women (some living, some passed) who have been that special spark that reignited us when our path may have become dark.  Today let me challenge you to think about those who have come before you and given you that help.  If they are alive send them a note thanking them for what they mean to you in your life.  photo (41)
