SPARK and Reminder on Monday


Monday is here again………………..and it’s time to SHARE A SPARK.  What exactly IS this Monday SPARK thing we do?   Well, most of you 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.

I must have looked through hundreds of “SPARK” possibilities for today but when I saw this one for the fourth or fifth time everywhere I looked, I realized it was meant for me to choose it to share on SPARK Monday.     The more I read it over and over the more I realized it was IMPORTANT.    So I’m sharing!!

These are strange times for everyone – isolating, changing life patterns even if temporarily, living with just a little bit of “niggling fear” that you might get sick……………but remembering that throughout time there have been good times followed by bad and bad times followed by good times which REALLY makes you realize life is a series of UPS and DOWNS……….LIGHTS and DARKS.     We will get our light back – I really do believe that!!

Hugs, Pam

As usual Teddy asked that I remind his Teaser class that they are expected to be in class no matter what tomorrow.   He said they will have desks a suitable and safe distance from each other and there will be ample supplies of hand and paw sanitizer available.  Class will begin at a SECRET time so watch your inbox!    

SPARK on Monday


Monday is here and it’s time to start the week off with a SPARK of inspiration!    This exercise was started by a good friend – Annie of McGuffy’s Reader – she believed that the world needs more light – more energy – more SPARK and what better way than sharing some inspiration at the START of a new week.   Annie is taking a break from blogging and those of us who loved her idea are carrying on with the tradition she began.

My SPARK today is about perseverance.   It’s all about being strong and carrying on no matter what.    I have gone through some tough times by keeping this idea CLOSE in my heart and mind.    Giving up isn’t in my plan – never has been and never will be.    How about you?

Oh believe me – I’ve wanted to give up several times in my life but I never did……………I’m an eternal optimist.   Sometimes it’s not easy to be one…………but I AM.

Hugs, and CARRY ON!
