The quote that I would like to share comes from Elizabeth Kubler-Ross. An American psychologist that is known for her theories on the 5 stages of grief.
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 a light from within.
I love this quote as these words ring so true to me! To me this quote attests to the beautiful fortitude in a person. It's so easy to be kind, happy, easy going when life is easy and rosy. But when it's difficult. When it's dark and hard - how do you handle it? Do you face it with grace? Goodness and kindness still shine through? I'd like to believe that my faith shines through in times of darkness. It is what has gotten me through some of the most difficult moments of my life when my glass felt like it was going dark. I turn to prayer. To my higher power - The Lord - and let His light shine through me and hopefully glow onto others as well.
I'm linking with Helen from I Will Bloom to find my "Fab" during the month of February. Go to her blog and you can read all about it and see other inspirational quotes.
