SPARKS on Monday


What’s SPARKS???   You all know that Annie of McGuffy’s Reader – who started SPARKS – was hacked and has been on an extended break from blogging although her idea to spread some inspiration on Monday of every week goes on.   Many of us who participated in her SPARKS Blog Hop and found value in sharing a thought on Monday continue doing that to hopefully give each other a “Monday boost” – perhaps something to think about to inspire us in the week ahead OR help us deal with something that’s on our mind.    Why not join us by sharing something that SPARKS you?   It might just start a spark in us too.

My SPARK today just might be popping into my head because next month I’ll be turning 72.    That’s not a bad age – frankly because when I was very young I had this feeling that kind of stuck with me that I would float off to heaven at age 62 due to some kind of accident.   Well that didn’t happen thank heaven but 72 is sneaking up on me and I honestly – truthfully – am not freaking out about that.   I’m HAPPY to be alive.   I’ve had serious health issues which probably have led me down the “grateful to be here” road but mostly I’ve been a very positive person.    That helps a lot when facing the aging thing.

I found this simple quote……………and it totally speaks to me.    Maybe it will speak to you too.    A lot of you are a long way from even thinking about aging – I know that – but one day it will be on your mind!

Anyway, that’s what matters…..not the wrinkles or gray hair – it’s the soul!

Love and have a Sparkly week!
