If it helps, I like to think of it as a modified version of the Bronsted Lowry acid and base idea. In the bronsted definition, an acid donates a hydrogen proton and a base accepts a hydrogen proton. Without a proton, you are left with an electron. The Lewis definition allows you to broaden and apply that definition with molecules that don't contain hydrogen.
