Wordless Wednesday (A Small Blue Light Edition)

<em>Leap Into Spring!</em> Photo Challenge”></a><br />

<span style=

With this post, I Leap! into the "Leap Into Spring" Photo Challenge. This challenge has two choices of prompts for each week. This week, the choices are Sunshine and Light.

Each April 2, people all over the world observe World Autism Awareness Day. Families install special blue light bulbs in their homes; businesses light up their entire buildings. I lit a single blue candle.


My light was just one among many. No one saw it except my family. But a light doesn't have to be big and dramatic to start to make a difference. A difference can start with one single candle, one conversation, one mile walked on behalf of a cause.

What cause in your life deserves a small light of support?

Thank you to Kristi of Live and Love Out Loud, Alicia of Project Alicia, and Rebecca of Bumbles and Light for hosting this challenge. The challenge will run from April 6th – May 18th and is open to everyone regardless of geographic location, skill level, time commitment or camera equipment. Simply stop by each Friday and share your favorite images inspired by the weekly prompts. It is going to have freebies, prizes and photography tips galore!

(Next week's theme is Easter/Eggs. The linky will be up on Friday, April 13 (I think!).)

So true. Even the smallest things can make a difference. Thanks for sharing.

Paula, I just love this! And you're right, the light doesn't have to be big and dramatic to have an effect or make a difference. We can all make a difference -in so many ways and for so many causes, really- even with the smallest of efforts.

Thanks so much for joining us in the Leap Into Spring Photo Challenge. We're moving on to our new theme tomorrow, Easter/eggs. Can't wait to see what you come up with! Have a great day!

Thank you so much for sharing this Paula! What a wonderful message. I do believe that we can all make a difference. I don't know if you know but my son struggles with autism. It is a mild form but has been a difficult challenge for him. Wish I'd known to shine the blue bulb. lol
