Hello Monday again! Time to SPARK………………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 was thinking this morning about how Christmas kind of wakes up the child in us……we talk a lot with others about Christmas memories – things that stand out about Christmases of the past – particularly when we were kids. I have tons of memories of Christmas but can’t seem to recall a lot of “normal/non-Christmas” type memories. Funny how the brain plays tricks on us. Anyway, I found this quote and it SPEAKS to the child in me and my thoughts of excitement at Christmas to this day……..maybe it will speak to you too?
Oh I love this one. I hope you do too……………………..I don’t care if I’m 72 – I intend to be a big old kid at Christmas……………….why break a 72 year tradition????
P.S. What’s a Monday Sparks post without a reminder from Teddy (oops – I mean PROFESSOR Teddy) that tomorrow is TUESDAY TEASER. Remember it’s going to pop up at a surprise time THEN you have to visit the blog, behave yourself in class, and check out the photo of some mystery spot in the world and be FIRST to tell Professor Teddy WHERE the photo was taken! Oh boy. Always fun!
