A couple of years ago I was reading this blog and Abby's mom wrote a post about keeping a candle in the window until her daughter came home. I haven't forgotten that post. This morning when I was taking down the candles I thought of Abby's mom again and decided it was time to light Polar Cub's candle.
I don't know if she will be home by next Christmas, but this candle will burn in Polar Cub's room until she does come home. Thanks for the great idea!
