“There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.” – Edith Wharton
This quote by Edith Wharton makes a lot of sense, doesn’t it? Even if you can’t be the light, you can still reflect someone else’s! It was this quote that I remembered when I read about the World of Moms blogging contest, called ‘This Little Light of Mine’. After reading the instructions, I knew I had to participate, and I did!
If you’re new to the World of Moms, here’s a little introduction about the website. World of Moms (also referred to as WOM) is a specially tailored community of and for Indian Moms, with a ton of information about, what else – being a Mom!
