SPARK on Monday

Standard

Here we are again………………it’s Monday and time for an inspirational thought – a little something to get us through another week.  Everyone is invited to participate by posting their OWN thoughts on their blogs – SPARKS inspire all of us!   “SPARKS” was started by Annie McGuffy of McGuffy’s Reader but ended when her blog was hacked 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.    Sometimes we need a little “spark” in our lives and these posts were meant to at least be a PART of that effort.    Those of us who enjoyed sharing a SPARK with Annie have continued doing so on Mondays – and we hope one day soon Annie will be back blogging with us again.    Please feel free to post a SPARK of your own and let everyone know you have…….we get energy from each other that way!

I was thinking about the future yesterday – I know we are far from shutting the door on the pandemic but we are BETTER off than we were a year ago I think.    So I’m thinking more about the future.   The immediate future and the “future” future.    You know what I mean.    And I saw this quote which I happen to love.   I thought I’d share it with you.

I do a lot of SPARKS about hope.   Without hope – what is there?    I can definitely hear the music – and in spite of having two left feet, I DO intend to dance to it today and for the rest of my life.

Have a good week!

Love and Light, Pam (and Teddy too)

“SPARKS” was started by Annie McGuffy of McGuffy’s Reader but ended when her blog was hacked 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.    Sometimes we need a little “spark” in our lives and these posts were meant to at least be a PART of that effort.    Those of us who enjoyed sharing a SPARK with Annie have continued doing so on Mondays – and we hope one day soon Annie will be back blogging with us again.    Please feel free to post a SPARK of your own and let everyone know you have…….we get energy from each other that way!

Now that I’m pretty well “back” from the worst of my recovery period post-surgery, I’m thinking more clearly and spending more time AWAKE (!)……………..I still have outpatient therapy to do but I am SO grateful that I healed so quickly and that I had such wonderful doctors, nurses and therapists taking care of me.     I also am grateful that my husband was here for me as he was my “24/7” carer and I couldn’t have done this well without him.     It gave me a lot of time to think about “us” – and really about the BEST of what we give each other.     My SPARK this week says it so perfectly I could have written it myself – but I didn’t!

 

We balance each other well…………………….I’m the one who’s up up up all the time and he’s the one who needs to be reminded often that the best things are the ones we strive for and reach for.    It’s really SO true.     I really just plain LOVE this SPARK.

Keep reaching for the stars!   Hugs, Pam

SPARK on Monday

Standard

It’s Monday again and you know what that means right?   Time for a SPARK – a message that will get you through the week or at the very least give you something to think about!  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 found this quote from Albert Einstein by accident…………….but maybe it wasn’t such an accident after all?   Maybe I needed to get the message?   Maybe you do too?

I actually have HEARD this quote before but had no idea it was by Albert Einstein.    He was a VERY smart man!     Have a super week……………….keep on moving……………………I will too.

Hugs, Pam,

SPARKS on Monday

Standard

Happy Monday and HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY………………….time for those of us who participate in Monday SPARKS to share a thought with each other.  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.

Thinking a lot lately as we all are about the future……………….this “mess” we are in right now – is it endless?   What will happen to us?    Will things EVER be the same?    All good questions and I guess we don’t know for sure what the answer is to any of these other than WE WILL GO ON.   We will…….it’s what we do – and that is kind of the message in my SPARK today:

I guess we really all NEED to believe this…………..we have learned some things already about ourselves, each other, the world around us – and how fragile life can be.    I also think it’s something like the ultimate “WAKE UP CALL” to have this sort of thing occur.    I choose to believe that many things will never go back to how they were – they will be better.    That’s my wish – just in case there’s a genie out there reading this blog post!

Happy Week ahead………….stay safe………….stay healthy…………stay hopeful.

Love, Pam and Teddy too

Teddy says don’t forget tomorrow is Geography Class……..we’ll show you a photo of a place -you tell us WHERE the photo was taken.  Cool huh?   See?  We’re not just a pretty face at One Spoiled Cat……you learn stuff here too! 

Spark and Reminder

Standard

Sparks?   What’s that?    Well it’s just what you probably think it is – it’s a special message to SPARK you into having a great week.   It will start your week off with a SPARK and give you some inspirational thought to carry you through.     SPARKS sparkle in our imaginations and make us move forward with enthusiasm!

Here’s my inspiring SPARK for this week……………………..a rather uncomplicated thought but maybe it will speak to you like it does to me?

I will be very happy when we’re all back in the light…………….stay strong and do the healthy thing even if it’s difficult………..we will get through this tough and challenging time!

 

Encouraging VIRTUAL Hugs, Pam

A reminder from the Ding Dong School Professors that tomorrow is TEASER TUESDAY – yes we will all be agonizing over another photograph trying to figure out WHERE it was taken.   We have fun……..everyone is welcome in class!    Remember that the post doesn’t appear in your inbox at the USUAL time – it’s always a surprise time just to make it more interesting!    SEE YOU “WHENEVER” TOMORROW!
