SPARK on Monday


It’s Monday and time for our SPARK of the week.    SPARKS on Monday is the idea of Annie from McGuffy’s Reader blog.    Annie is taking a well deserved break but those of us who love the idea of sharing something positive and adding a little “SPARK of light” to the world each week are continuing the tradition she began.    The idea is sharing a thought, photo, idea, quote, that might start our week and everyone else’s week off on a high note – maybe one we can keep with us all week!

Today is HUG YOUR CAT DAY – not that everyone would know that but as a lover of cats, and someone who has always loved them whether they were mine or someone else’s (!), I have a quote today which is a combination of a powerful spark and an expression of my appreciation of felines.    I also think it’s an adorable “poster” – the cat smile in the picture makes me smile and that is the whole idea behind the quote.    Sometimes if WE smile and keep that smile on our faces, others can’t help but smile back – and there’s absolutely NOTHING wrong with that – right?

I happen to think that the way the world sees US can be inspirational – see someone smile and you might smile back and someone could see YOUR smile and smile and pass it on…..and so on and so on………maybe it would be a happier place if we all had a smile on our face?

Happy Monday   

Hugs (and smile) Pam

  1. Motor Mommy says that’s an adorable poster….and she also says that today is the PURRFECT day to be “Hug your cat day”!!! 😉 😉 😉
    And now, I’m going to go find her, so she can give me a HUG!
    Love, Sundae

  2. What an excellent Spark and poster. Smiles are contagious. Since we usually cannot run up to someone we don’t know and hug that person, a smile is a great substitute. Have a smile- and hug-filled day. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer


    • I just got back from a trip to Walmart where I did my smile thing and sure enough every single person that saw me smile, smiled right back……and I’m willing to bet it just got passed on and on and on and THAT made me feel GREAT! Hope you have tons of hugs and smiles to pass around your house and your neighborhood too!

      Love, Pam and Teddy


  3. We couldn’t find any cats here to hug, but we pestered Mom and she gave us each a big hug.

    Happy Monday.

    • I am sure my penchant for having an eternal smile on my face has caused me to have these “smile lines” but I kind of like them because it shows in EVERY way that I’m a happy person!!! LOL

      Love to you, Pam
