Rix Quinn’s Minute Story: Night light

night light

The most important light in our house is the smallest one. Like many families, we keep a tiny night light in a dark hallway.

That bulb’s kept me safe for years. When our child was little, it illuminated a path to her room, so we wouldn’t stumble if she called us. Later, it kept us from tripping over our large and frequently sleeping dog.

Not long ago, before guests came over, I pulled the light out so I could plug in a vacuum cleaner. Then, I forgot where I put it.

Bad idea! We couldn’t find the night light for several days, and I stumbled around in the dark.

The night light’s simple mission is clear. It brightens one specific area that needs it most.

My goal is to be more like my little night light. I don’t offer much illumination, but at least I can help a little bit.
