A Different Kind of Light


When we see the tiny Crocus blossom, often beneath the snow, it brightens what can be an otherwise dreary day. It’s a sense of knowing that spring is coming soon. During this month of December and time of giving, let’s lighten up a room with a different kind of bulb. It’s a simple gift yet one of promise - infuse your world with bulbs. Plant a bulb in a small pot and wrap it with a bow. Come the thaw, past the winter freeze, Sophocles’ words will come true. “Gratitude to gratitude always gives birth.”  

So rather than light a candle or send a flare in the air, give 26 bulbs away in memory of those precious lives lost in Newtown. It’s a simple gift yet one of promise – it’s a different kind of light. “Gratitude to gratitude always gives birth.”
