SPARKS on Monday

Standard

Monday again and time to share a little bit of inspiration for the week.    We all find it somewhere don’t we…..within our hearts, on our computer screens, in a book we’ve read or a movie we’ve seen…..something hits is “just right” and becomes our weekly mantra.    This whole idea of sharing something on Mondays to fire the spirit was the idea of Annie of McGuffy’s Reader who is no longer blogging – and while we hope she comes back one day we are keeping the idea of SPARKS going.   It’s important after all!

I was thinking this morning about bravery – maybe it was watching the news coverage of Senator McCain and his brave battle with cancer which he lost on Saturday – maybe it was seeing the bravery of those helping with victims of the hurricane in Hawaii……or the seemingly never-ending battle out West and in Canada with forest fires – but bravery is all around us.   Sometimes it’s “disguised” or at least QUIET enough that we don’t immediately notice it – but it’s there.

I like this quote……………..it’s all about moving along.   Some days are better than the next but we’re MOVING…….!   Some days we yell out loud and other days we barely roar but still it’s OUR DAY and we face it as we can.    Some days I’m a lion and other days I’m a mouse……but I will move forward.

Have a super week everyone!

Love, Pam (and Teddy too)

 

SPARKS for Monday

Standard

Time to put a little SPARKLE in our week!

SPARKS is a wonderful Blog Hop – the brainchild of my friend Annie from McGuffy’s Reader.   Her idea was that a wonderful way to start off our week would be with a little inspiration – a little push – a little shove – a little OOOOMPH to make us ready to face another week of life in this world we live in.   Inspiration comes in many forms and we can share inspiration with everyone however we want to in this Hop.    I enjoy looking for quotes that “speak to me” and hope that because they resonate so loudly within ME, maybe they will reach others in the same way.    If you’d like to join this Hop, just click on the graphic above – it takes you to Annie’s blog where you can use the LINKY tool and join us!

This quote that I found for today is maybe one of my favorites of all time……………..how can we learn new things – stretch our imagination – connect with great ideas and great people if we don’t “leave port”……..a safe harbor is one thing, but never leaving it to see what the world has in store for us would be a shame………..we are “built” to explore.

Have a good week everyone………………put a little sparkle in your life and everyone else’s – take a chance…………!

Love, Pam
