SPARKS for New Years Day


Spark for the New Year!

Happy New Year everyone………….it’s not only New Year’s Day but it’s SPARKS on Monday – what a great combination.    We will start off our 2018 with some good old fashioned inspiration thanks to Annie at McGuffy’s Reader who began this wonderful Monday Sparks Blog Hop.   Her idea was to bring some positivity to the world by sharing a thought, idea, quote – whatever might “touch” others who read or see it.    Thank you again Annie for hosting this Hop as we begin a brand new year with hope in our heart for a BETTER year for all of us.    If you would like to join those of us who participate in spreading some light, love and inspiration to start our week off – just click the graphic above and using the LINKY Tool become part of the fun.

I have a VERY VERY simple “Spark” today…………………I don’t think it needs a bit of explanation………….but it’s been my personal “mantra” for years.    I truly try to do this myself and I think if you keep the idea in your head and give it a try – you will find that you are happier with yourself and everyone around you as you walk the pathway of your personal journey.

Easy………………you can do this if you just try………….sometimes all it takes is a smile!

Sparkle in 2018!  

Love, Pam

    • That’s a very kind thing for you to say……….trust me – you guys are a HUGE inspiration to a lot of people too… don’t let things get you down you just keep on going and THAT takes a lot of HOPE and LOVE and that’s inspiring!

      Love, Pam and Teddy


    • HAHAHA…..gosh we hope that glitter stuff doesn’t “come back” in the new year…….then again, who knows – platform shoes, BIG hair, mini skirts – who knows what the new year will bring!

      Hugs, Pam


    • Nice to meet you Pamela! I just commented on your SPARKS post – the comment didn’t show up so I guess you are monitoring them but also wanted to say HAPPY NEW YEAR too……..

      Hugs, Pam


    • Thank you Ellen………I try to stay “up” as I go through my days…I always found being around people who were positive was like getting my own personal battery charge! So if I can pass it on in some way – I will.

      Love, Pam

    • You’re right Marv – Queen Penelope sparkled everywhere she went. She lightened the world for all of us. I’m sure that the Rainbow Bridge Ball was SPARKLING all night long in fact! Happy New Year Marvelous to you AND to your Mommy as well.

      Love, Teddy

  4. What an inspiring post!! Mum really likes your sparkle manifesto and has made me write that down for her..
    My personal mantra is to Play, Play, Play!!!
    Have a wonderful 2018!!
    Morrie 🙂


    • Thank you Caren………My SPARKS really represents what I’ve tried to do forever – “smile and the world smiles with you” kind of thing…………..seems to work pretty well but mostly I just feel better with a smile and a sparkle!!

      Love you, Pam


  5. What a fun coincidence with your quote – my human set up a promotion that started today for people to get the Kindle version of Sparkle’s first book for free! It’s doing really well too – it got all the way to the #1 position in the Free Kindle Cat books category. That means it is now technically an Amazon Best Seller! Not bad for a 9-year-old book.


I wanna know what YOU've got to say!!
