Happy Monday! For quite a while those of us who knew that Monday Sparks would hopefully be as uplifting to others as it has been for us, kept posting a message of hope, love, and positivity on Mondays even though Annie of McGuffy’s Reader blog – who began Sparks – wasn’t blogging due to having been hacked. Well we got a big surprise a few weeks ago when Annie blogged again and we are sincerely hoping she will be able to continue! It was a brilliant idea she started – and we’re carrying on with it as we have been. Annie – we’ll look forward to your permanent return!
I was recently telling someone about how I believe I have developed arthritis in some of my joints……it’s only fair after all – I’m “of an age” where things sometimes begin to get extra “achy-breaky” but she said at the end of our conversation “stay strong”. After we hung up I thought about it and I absolutely don’t FEEL strong. I feel like complaining about being uncomfortable is FAR from being strong. Anyway, I searched for something to inspire me to not complain and keep on working on getting into shape to the extent that I can and found this GREAT quote from Ghandi.
All I had to do was think about some of the other health struggles I’ve “conquered” in my life and I realized that maybe I HAD been strong in the past – and if I could do it then – I can do it now. So that’s my plan. We actually ALL can do it – we’ve all developed strength in various ways. As we age we need to call on that strength – either that or have some good friends to keep you “pumped up” when you have a down moment or two!!!
