SPARK on Monday


Hello Monday SPARK friends!  “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.

We’re inching up to Christmas and I can’t help it – after spending a week decorating the house inside and out – it’s on my mind!   And I’m thinking about the spirit of Christmas that I have always had.   Always since I was a kid.   I admit the “important” things are different to me as an adult than they were as a kid.    Santa and what he was going to bring me was important when I was six but now……..I have a different perspective as we all do when we age.     Giving is just more important than receiving.   I enjoy finding something to give a friend – hoping they understand what about our friendship made me think of that thing as JUST RIGHT to give.    But it is much deeper than that………and I thought this quote by Winston Churchill contains that “deepness” I’m talking about.   


Hope I didn’t get too off on a tangent with this one but I really do think it’s “right on” – at least for me it is!

Hugs, Pam

  1. How I loved that quote from one of my most favorite people, Winston Churchill. I admire him more than any one figurehead in his Country. He was the most wise and the best Statesman anywhere. He personified the British, to me… and at a time they needed him so desperately.
