Happy Chanukah! 

For anyone who is wondering, Chanukah is not about 8 consecutive days of presents, but about the miracle of light.  We celebrate the miraculous endurance of one drop of oil, found in the midst of disaster and destruction, that lasted for 8 days and brought spiritual light into a dark world. 

We still are in dire need of that light and even just the tiniest bit can illuminate the darkness we all sometimes experience. Here are some beautiful images of light with inspirational quotes to go with them. Let this be a time of lightness and joy!
What is to give light must endure burning.  ~Viktor Frankl
Sometimes just looking up and seeing the light is enough.  ~Terri Guillemets

In the right light, at the right time, everything is extraordinary.  ~Aaron Rose 
Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart.  ~Kahlil Gibran

Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine.  ~Anthony J. D'Angelo
Turn your face to the sun and the shadows fall behind you.  ~Maori Proverb
Light gives of itself freely, filling all available space.  It does not seek anything in return; it asks not whether you are friend or foe.  It gives of itself and is not thereby diminished.  ~Michael Strassfeld
“We all shine on...like the moon and the stars and the sun...we all shine on...come on and on and on...”
― John Lennon
We are each gifted in a unique and important way. It is our privilege and our adventure to discover our own special light.  ~Evelyn Dunbar
People are like stained-glass windows.  They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is light from within.  ~Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
When you possess light within, you see it externally.  ~Anaïs Nin

De”light” fully Yours,
