Here we go with another week……the days fly by……and we’re still here! Monday means starting out another week with a light heart and a right attitude. At least that’s what I try to do. What is SPARKS? Mondays are the start of a new week and why not start that week with a thought or message or reminder of the fact that Mondays set the tone for the week ahead – why not make it powerful. That was the idea that Annie McGuffy of McGuffy’s Reader had when she began the SPARK posts a few years ago – before her blog was hacked and she stopped posting. We hope she will be back soon – we miss her but in her honor many of us have been carrying the SPARKS torch on Mondays. Just something to make us stop and think – prepare us for facing a new day – and facing a holiday that will be here before you know it! Christmas!
OK – before YOU say it – I’ll say it. “Isn’t it a little early to talk about Christmas??”………………..well, yes and no. For one thing I think most of us who celebrate Christmas are MORE THAN READY for it this year. It’s been a hideous year – we need something to make us smile and “let the kid out”. My inner kid was itching to decorate earlier than usual so I did my front porch decorating and that helped. But that wasn’t ALL I wanted to do. I wanted to find a SPARK that contained all the enthusiasm I have for what is my favorite holiday and time of the year………………….
I found this and thought it was really what I wanted to say and how I really feel:
And I believe in Santa Claus – yes I do. Santa Claus is a FEELING………..and I’ve always had that FEELING. I intend to hang on to it until my last breath too!
