Albert Schweitzer said, “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.”
Last week I almost gave up writing my book. I sent it out to a couple of my literary-type friends for an honest review and was elated yesterday when one of them (Jean) said she received the half-completed manuscript by email, opened the Word attachment late that evening, and got so absorbed that she read until she couldn’t keep her eyes open any longer. I had stopped working on the book until I received some feedback, but based on Jean’s review I have hope that this whole book thing is not just a folly and have resumed writing. Thank heavens for the people in my life who help me rekindle my light when it goes out.
