It’s Monday again and time for us to SPARK together! What exactly IS this Monday SPARK thing we do? Well, most of you know that Annie of McGuffy’s Reader – who started SPARKS – was hacked and has been on an extended break from blogging although her idea to spread some inspiration on Monday of every week goes on. Many of us who participated in her SPARKS Blog Hop and found value in sharing a thought on Monday continue doing that to hopefully give each other a “Monday boost” – perhaps something to think about to inspire us in the week ahead OR help us deal with something that’s on our mind. Why not join us by sharing something that SPARKS you? It might just start a spark in us too.
I’ve got a very simple SPARK today……………but even though it’s simple that doesn’t mean it isn’t important.
This really hits home with me. When I was a little girl there were always things that were to be “kept for a special occasion”……….that included everything from the best china, linen, silverware, clothing, special snacks, drinks, ON AND ON AND ON. I kind of knew it was just my way of Mom saying “not now”……….but that’s part of the reason I love this particular SPARK because saving all those things is silly – every day we’re alive is a special occasion – especially if you’ve ever gone through anything “dramatic” in your life………..traumatic OR dramatic in fact. So don’t save things for special occasions – let every single day be a special occasion. Lesson learned!
Today is also Veterans Day. My Dad was a Veteran………….he was a very proud Air Force officer who served his country and was actually SAD to retire! He loved military life and we all loved it too because we got to see the world with him. Happy Veteran’s to everyone who has served their country in any capacity.
I miss you Dad…..and was always proud of you.
Happy Monday………Hugs, Pam
