SPARK on Monday


Monday is SPARK day.     Just a little thought to get you through………the next hours, next day, next week or WHENEVER.  “SPARKS” was started by Annie McGuffy of McGuffy’s Reader but ended when her blog was hacked some time ago.  It was meant to be a way to start out each week with with a meaningful thought – something that spoke to each of us and hopefully everyone else who read it.    Sometimes we need a little “spark” in our lives and these posts were meant to at least be a PART of that effort.    Those of us who enjoyed sharing a SPARK with Annie have continued doing so on Mondays – and we hope one day soon Annie will be back blogging with us again.    Please feel free to post a SPARK of your own and let everyone know you have…….we get energy from each other that way!

My SPARK today is unusual – it’s short and may not even inspire you in a particular direction – but it will make you stop and think – and I think it will make you SMILE.    Ready?

Somehow just thinking this makes seeing that snow coming down outside ENDLESSLY (for some of us!) seem less – threatening  maybe?   I like it………….it’s different indeed but it packs a bit of a “punch” all its’ own I think.

Have a GREAT week……………………..we expect another load of butterflies to come this week in our endless Winter here in Virginia.    Oops – did I say butterflies?   Well you know what I mean!

Hugs, Pam

  1. OH, that is priceless!!!! And mama went to school in Virginia but only one year. Long story…
    LOVE the butterfly snowflakes but thank heaven we do not have those. And no real butterflies either but they do come in summer and the ones that we had in California turned into HORNWORMS. Another long story….Here no worms. France has only beetle type creatures that eat the cabbage.
    Love from Loulou and famly.


    • I think it’s a really cool thought too – Spring has butterflies and Winter has snowflakes. Can’t WAIT to see Spring here though – lots of snow and ice have made it challenging this year!!

      Hugs, Teddy


  2. A beautiful and thoughtful Spark inspiring hope for many who are being pounded with frightful and dangerous winter weather. The idea of looking at snowflakes as the butterflies of winter makes me happy and makes me smile. Your Spark today may be short but it’s mighty!


    • That’s PRECISELY the feeling I got from this one – made me happy and made me smile and it was not so painful to look out the window at the very light snow coming down! I’ll have to remember this when the snow is LESS “gentle” and it makes me think of falling boulders instead of butterflies! HAHAHA

      Love, Pam


  3. I love this one. We still have the 27 below zero stuff. The outside cat that comes has not shown up yet. I am worried about him. I have not been able to catch him. You have a wonderful day and stay warm and toasty.


  4. We cats are over the top of our backs in butterflies! I don’t think the “butterflies” will be gone for a long time! (we got another 5″ of butterflies this morning and they are still floating down..
    Mom, however, was laughing so hard when she read your Spark that coffee came out her nose! We LOVE it when that happens. Have a Marvellously Happy (and Snowflake free) day!”


  5. Thinking of snowflakes being butterflies sure makes a pretty image, but we don’t think butterflies would be very happy with the frigid cold gripping us right now:)

  6. I love that thought! There must have been a large heavenly explosion of butterflies, cause the sidewalk which I cleared at 6pm is totally covered in several inches of fallen butterflies! And more are coming to join this butterfly convention. Wait, don’t butterflies know anything about social distancing??

    The flakes we are having are tiny and crystalline…so at least it will not be too heavy to dig out of, but the real pretty snow-butterflies are those big, soft and fluffy one!

    See ya! Hope the teaser pic is a nice and warmth giving one:)


  7. Neat perspective on snow…one I never would have thought of. It it does make it less threatening. Thanks for sharing. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, angel Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy, Sawyer & Kizmet
