Tea & Sympathy
“Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared." - Buddha
Whether it's the act of lighting a single candle or seeing hundreds held in a candlelight vigil, the flickering light surrounded by darkness has always moved me as an act of remembrance - a way of saying "I am waiting for you." This is why I love these tea cup candles at TwilightSpells. Made from soy and available in in a variety of fragrances, these tea cup candles are a precious way to honor someone. I especially think they'd make a considerate gift for someone who has recently lost a mother or grandmother - there's something maternal and comforting here, a quiet and gentle warmth.
