A Prosperity Pillar Candle Brings Friends Together During Transitions

April 25, 2011

Thank you to Kerri Simonelli for sharing this beautiful story of women coming together at a transitional point by the light of a Prosperity Candle!

Recently, my moms’ group and I were gathering to pamper and spend some quality time with our friend who was on the brink of having her third baby!  Our group has been together for 6 years and we have had the good fortune of celebrating many babies in that time!  We’ve collectively made beautiful gifts for each other, something different and unique every time.  We had planned a lovely brunch for this occasion and knew that just being together mom to mom without the kids would be really fun and special and unique knowing that life was about to get crazy for our friend.

Prosperity Pillar Candle brings women and friends together at a brunch in honor or a new mom - a gift that gives back and brings friends together

My idea was to get a pillar candle to burn during our brunch and time spent together laughing, sharing stories and relaxing.  I also wanted to get some smaller votive candles that we could each light from the pillar then take with us and relight when our friend was giving birth as a way to share our good energy with her.  She would then have the “big mama” candle as a reminder of our love ~ she could light hers anytime and feel our friendship and support.   I knew about Prosperity Candle and their mission to empower women- what a perfect fit for our ceremony!  I felt like I hit the jackpot!  There was no way I could organize this simple but meaningful ceremony and not have a Prosperity Candle as the beacon of light for our friend.

a Prosperity Pillar Candle from Iraq is a gift that gives back - and now, a gift that brings together friends!

It was perfect!  At the gathering I shared the significance of the Prosperity candle and how it was truly a gift from one strong woman to another.  And at the end of a beautiful morning as we lit our candles from hers, I felt so proud in my heart to know that our moment had been captured and that we were sharing the light in this way.
