SPARK on Monday


Happy Monday……….you know what some of us do on Mondays – we share an uplifting (hopefully) thought – something to inspire us for the week ahead.   “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!

I was in the mood to find a SPARK that had to do with Spring……….I am looking forward to Spring more than I can EVER remember before this past year.    The time most of us have spent during this past year hasn’t been what we’d call “ideal”…… distancing, cutting back on trips, staying home, cancelling plans that had been made pre-virus.    For those reasons I know I am looking forward to the change from Winter to Spring – Spring is more cheery, more hopeful and maybe the start of some semblance of normalcy as the world becomes vaccinated and SOME of our routines return.

Anyway, I really like this HOPEFUL expression of Spring!

I’ll admit that as far back as I can remember, I’ve looked forward to Spring anyway, but…..this year for me, Spring equals HOPE.    Maybe a new beginning?    I think a lot of us are wishing that would be the case.    It’s time for us to be hopeful like never before.

With Love and Hope, Pam

  1. oooh we agree… to see how all the flowers come back and put their heads out of the earth, give hope… they are maybe like soldiers who come out of a trench when the battle is over… and we hope not only the batlle will be over soon, but the war too…

    • We may have some snow again today over top of what’s still on the ground. Sigh. SPRING WHERE ARE YOU??? Actually later this week we have two days predicted to be in the low 50s – that’s SORT of Spring!

      Hugs, Pam


  2. Oh, Pam and kitty cat and family, we, too, are looking toward spring. Just the other day, mama went to pick parsley (the only thing growing in winter, haha) and she almost picked the tops off of little yellow-beginning-daffodils that were coming up next to the parsley! SO…bulbs know when to arrive. I just hope that Ms Spring knows, too.


    • Yes somehow bulbs just know when it’s time to begin showing themselves. Mom says when she and Dad first built the house they planted LOTS of daffodil bulbs but only about ten came up – seems the squirrels dug all the bulbs up for food so Mom never replanted. Someone told us to try putting screen down over the bulbs – we may try that.

      Hugs, Teddy


  3. Yesterday Teddy, there was sun and the temperature was 56 as a high. I watched my mom hippity-hoppity about as though she had just hatched. It’s coming sooner than soon. SPRING.


  4. Bravo on the most appreciated and beautiful spark! Indeed bring on the spring…and maybe not too many April Showers ’cause our ground is like quick sand..
    Pam does your new bionic hip allow you running races yet?
    Hugs Cecilia


  5. What a wonderful Spark. We can hardly wait for Spring this year, and we have lots of hope that we will soon have everyone vaccinated. Praying you can get yours soon.
