Changing The Vision: For A Better Tomorrow

Welcome to Ruth's Page

I am so excited to be here and to be a part of a whole new community. Excited to meet this challenge head on. I am going to share a story that reminds me of Sparkpeople.

Welcome to Ruth's Page

I am so excited to be here and to be a part of a whole new community. Excited to meet this challenge head on. I am going to share a story that reminds me of Sparkpeople.

In my Native community we built a bridge that crosses over a brook, in which we named it the "Crossing over Bridge." At this bridge we place the photos of our loved ones who have crossed over to the other world in the roof of this bridge. At the dedication ceremony there was a large candle which was lit; each person at the ceremony held a smaller candle, then lighting ours with the larger one. After speaking the words of dedication, holding our candles, the flame from the large candle was blown out....(the larger candle representing our loved one).....as the flame dwindled to smoke we looked around and saw the light from all the other candles....the meaning to this story was to reflect on the larger candle, (our loved one) and by seeing all the small candles lit symbolizing all the lives this loved one had touched... even though the larger candle no longer burns.
As is with Sparkpeople one candle touches many lives... thank you Sparkpeople...
