“Friday wishes”…rekindling each other’s light…. rekindling with kindness, generosity, compassion and encouragement

For the past several years, I’ve been part of an email network that passes along nurturing and encouraging “Friday Wishes.”  By the time Friday afternoon arrives, I’m often worn out from the work week…and my own light sometimes feels close to out….I have a wonderful job, but it can be wearing.

Thankfully,  each Friday afternoon,
kind and encouraging wishes arrive
and provide such wonderful comfort and sustenance.


And so….
I pass along a flame,
or maybe it’s just a breeze….
to contribute to rekindling the flames within each of you…
and offer my own deepest thanks to so many
who pass along your own flame or bit of a breeze
that rekindles that flame
within the rest of us…
thank you



My thanks to Kate, at Believe Anyway, for that wonderful quote and her beautiful post.

For anyone who might like to pass “Friday Wishes” along to others….
there is a thumbnail image above and at the top of the right hand “Posts” column…
please feel free to copy and paste that image into your own posts or columns….
if you’d like  to pass a few of your own  “Friday Wishes…”along to others…
perhaps a few encouraging words… a nice quote… a photo…a poem….a special song…
a movie suggestion….a bit of humor…a website… a good book….
whatever “language” each of us might use to express our ideas…
anything that might warm the heart of another

    Lovely post. Thank you. I’m ready for the weekend now. 🙂


  2. Wow, I adore this idea! :-). What a truly wonderful way to inspire each other. Love ♥


  3. We heat our house with wood and I’ve often thought of writing a blog post about how one log encourages the other to burn bright. hmm, maybe I will do that today. Great inspiration, as always.


    • thanks for writing that Joss…your post is wonderful…
      And as far as this idea…one idea leads to another leads to another leads to another….it just travels along…no need to reference back. I got the quote from Kate at Believe Anyway and she probably found it someplace else…I love how ideas travel!
      I’ d love to see different posters ways of expressing this idea of adding kindling or oxygen…I’m guessing there would be really intriguing variations doing this…art, photos, poems, essays, humor….varying so much with each blogger’s own “style”


  4. What a great idea. We could use this at school. I think I’ll do the same at school. Thanks for the idea.

    We MUST have others to rekindle our lights–they are sent from above, I believe, when HE knows we are flickering out! I love the Friday Wishes network idea!


    • I’ve had such special and kind people who have helped to rekindle my own light…and am very deeply thankful for that…and hopefully I help to pass it along to others,too…
      Friday wishes are always wonderful, but some weeks they are like a life raft…that wonderful…I highly recommend this idea to others..


      • Maybe a small “Friday wishes” part of people’s Friday blog posts would be special…some people are such beautiful and expressive writers, other photographers…others music…whatever medium one is able to express their own nourishing ideas….a rekindling of spirits?

    Reblogged this on granbee and commented:
    Dear friends, see what you can come up with while reading this post to rekindle someone else’s light!
    I could not resist reblogging this post, as it speaks so well to the need our critterly friends have on their continuing journey to keep warmth and light flowing for each other.

    You have given me an idea of sharing and encouraging people in my path. Thank you for this lovely post.


    • Thank you for your own idea of sharing and encouraging…I just added a “Friday Wishes” image to the top of this post and the top right hand posts column…in case anyone else would like to use that idea in their own blog…to pass along whatever others might appreciate…a few encouraging words, a song, a photo, a poem….however one “speaks” to others…


  11. Beautiful.. Life should hold more caring and sharing.. Thank you for sharing this with your readers..
    If we all did just one positive act of sharing a kind word or deed.. or even just a smile… this world would soon SHINE!… Love and Blessings.. ~Sue Dreamwalker


    • Thank you…. it really would shine…actually I notice so many people doing this each day… at least they do in elementary schools…and it does bring a wonderful shine to everyone’s hearts…. : )


  12. I think share a scripture and embrace with a hug does wonders for the soul. Sharing God’s word by giving someone a scripture to meditate on is refreshing. Thank you for sharing your ideas, such a blessing to think of others.
