Nice way to write to be mindful, to be in the present moment and enjoy it! Myself I wouldn't lit a candle because I'm allergic to aromas and candle smell, but in my mind I could see the light and feel what is described in the text. It was a nice short meditation. Thanks CAROLJEAN for sharing!
Also TRAVELFAN thanks for the quotes, like CAROLJEAN the last 2 were my favorites
Have a Healthy and Happy 2014!

Love the Ellen Goodman and Goran Perrson the best. Read something yesterday that I loved Light a candle this day in gratitude for all the wondrous things you experienced in 2013. Use the light of this candle to reflect and then blow the candle out. The past is dead and gone and will never return.
Light a candle this day for all the wondrous possibilities that are awaiting you in 2014. Use the light of this candle to dream of the possibilities then blow the candle out. Tomorrow is an illusion and never comes.
Light a candle this day and see the beauty of the candle. Experience its beauty for it is like your life and can only be experienced in this moment. Allow the candle to be your reminder.
You have learned and reflected upon the candle of the past and the candle of the future. You have blown these candles out. What you have before you is the candle of the moment. Keep this candle burning . . . always.
