SPARKS and a Reminder


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 saw a couple of fabulous quotes while looking and got excited about BOTH of them because I really believe in both thoughts but I had to choose one – and this is it!

If we’re honest we ALL must admit that we have had failures in our life – of one sort or another………but if we just pushed through whatever it was we were trying to do or trying to feel or trying to GET, we were winners.    I know the old saying “it’s not whether you win or lose but how you play the game” and that ties right into this.   Same thing.   Even if we lose we have tried and by doing so, we are winners as we’ve faced the challenge.    My Dad wanted me to always be a winner whatever I was doing – it was a lot of pressure – I wasn’t able to win everything – in fact I failed at many things – but I was able to learn that he would NOTICE if I had just tried my best.    Yes he still wanted me to win (!) but I knew and he knew I’d done the hard part of TRYING.

Hope everyone has a WINNING week…………………just try!

Hugs, Pam


REMINDER FROM PROFESSOR TEDDY……………..tomorrow at a surprise time is the Tuesday Teaser.   Those of you who like to figure out WHERE a particular photograph was snapped, feel free to join in the fun.   We never say WHEN the post will go live – because it’s more fun that way!

  1. Teaser time comes by fast…and if I didn’t send it like last weeks, then I will TRY, but if I fail, at least I get a yummy greenie to share around, MOL!

    I could have given up back in 2006/7 when I was very sick, but I did not and now I am healthy and even working! (PTL!!)
    Those who succeed are the ones who when they fall down, dust themselves off and start again:)
