Every Shabbos after I light candles, I look at them. The candles have a special meaning to me. They mean peace. The hard week is done. Now we can relax.

The candlelight shines down on me.

It makes me want Shabbos to last forever.

When Shabbos ends, I feel the familiar feeling back and I can’t wait for next Shabbos to come.
