SPARK on Monday


It’s MONDAY!  You know by now that means it’s time for a SPARK. “SPARKS” was started by Annie McGuffy of McGuffy’s Reader but ended when she stopped blogging 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. Although Annie isn’t currently blogging, a lot of us who enjoyed her SPARKS decided to keep posting SPARKS of our own. Why? Because 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 your own SPARK on your blog and let everyone know you have…….we get energy from each other that way.

I had so many ideas about what I might want to focus on for this SPARK-LY MONDAY – and this is what I settled on:

I sometimes expect too much – I know I do that………….But if I could just NOT do that, I am POSITIVE that I would not have as many disappointing moments.    It just makes sense.   That doesn’t mean I don’t want the best out of life or situations – just that I shouldn’t EXPECT it.    I’ll enjoy it when the BEST happens a whole lot more.

Have a good week – but accept if it turns out to be not what you expected.

  1. That’s a GREAT spark. I wish I could use the words of a wise student who when confronted by his teacher who said, “Well, I assumed, Peter, that you were doing it” respondded, Mr Chappell, assumption is the mother of f….kup! We try not to assumed just for that reason, haha. And your “expecting” fits right in.


  2. This is a good one. Always nice when everyone goes to work. I can get laundry done, light vaccuming,and it was trash day so got that out.77 and sunny today.


  3. Expectations are dangerous things. Our mom and her sister spent their lives never living up to their parents expectations. Acceptance makes much more sense. Sending lots of love to all.
