“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. Please feel free to post a SPARK of your own on your blog and let everyone know you have…….we get energy from each other that way!
I spent a whole lot of time with our cat Teddy this weekend. He has been loving the weather lately and even if it’s been fairly miserable for US, he’s happy with heat and humidity. Anyway, he’s always happy to have us with him out in the yard. He will come up to us both from wherever he’s exploring in the yard and give our legs big hugs…..then back to his spot for more napping or exploring. It’s like he’s “touching base”. That’s what we call it. I think he just appreciates that we’re there in case he needs us. But I also think it’s because he really does enjoy spending time with us like we enjoy spending time with him. Unconditional love…………it’s great isn’t it? We seem to get that from our pets even if sometimes it’s in short supply from humans!!!
Just one reason why my life has always been happier when I’ve had a pet!
