Last night I attendend our Candle Lighting as part of The Compassionate Friends Worldwide Candle Lighting event.
At 7pm, on the second Sunday in December, candles are lit, around the world, making a wave a light as it goes through the different time zones. Truly magical!
Here I am with my gorgeous friend Sonya (on the right) as we prepare to release our balloons. Unfortunately Jeremy had other ideas. My first one burst - unexpectedly, it was the only one - and the second one had a mind of its own and escaped while I was taking photos. I went with his wishes and did not make another attempt.
The highlight of the evening was this magnificent rainbow which appeared. We were elated as it followed a tradition which began last year with our inaugural event.
