Last night we invited our neighbors over for some wine and cheese, and I thought it would be nice to light the patio with our new coffee can and soda bottle candles… plus a few others, including our Amnesty International Vessel of Light and Cheryl Summa’s lovely Global Connections pillar with its floral design.
What is better than stories and laughter, a California red and Italian white, cheese from Vermont and the Pyrenees… all in the glow of a setting sun and handmade candles that help resilient women rebuild their lives?
All of us at Prosperity Candle are working long hours to create a social enterprise with tremendous impact – one that can change lives. We’re passionate about what we do. Sometimes it’s great to step back for a moment and enjoy the candles themselves – these perfect symbols of peace, reflection, and hope for a better future for the women who made them – and for us all.
Last night was such an occasion. The candles burned brightly and beautifully, and even after 3 hours had hardly begun to burn down. That means a lot more wonderful evenings ahead! – Ted
