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!

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!

 

Thankful and Poetic Thursday

Standard

Time to be thankful and we truly ARE thankful that our family so far is healthy and we are doing everything in our power to stay that way.    Mom and Dad are staying home (which I love because I get more ME time!!) and other than going outside for walks in the yard with me, they are just taking drives in the country when they get “cabin fever” then coming right home.   We hope and pray that ALL of you will stay healthy too!

We received our poetic email from Angel Sammy too – he says all the Angels are working overtime to help us down here to stay SAFE……..and Healthy.

♥♥♥

Hello Poetry Fans!

I hope this post finds all of you happy and healthy and being patient as the world goes through a HUGE change with the virus going around.    Angels are at work to protect you.    Please follow guidelines and suggestions even if it’s “inconvenient” because it will keep you all SAFE!

Ready to be poetic?   That will lighten things a bit………………if you wrote a poem this week from last week’s photo let us know in comments – we want to read it!     Below is the photo I gave you to think about and write about AND my poem to go with that photo.

“Escape”

Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell    ©March 18, 2020

In these days of uncertainty and concern

Our minds go to places where the clock barely turns

Endless days full of relaxation and rest

Our imaginations sometimes know what’s best

Calm beaches, slow paces, and no big concerns

Healthy futures and happy lives are where our mind turns

Believe in the future and an end to this worry

Let your mind take you to places where life’s pace is NO hurry

Until the day when we learn that things are all clear

Do your best to stay healthy and hold those you love very near…………

 

It’s a worrisome time – we must believe in ourselves and our ability to overcome obstacles like we’ve had throughout history………….Do what is recommended and keep yourselves safe.    That’s the best way right now…………and stay HOPEFUL.    If you can lend a hand to someone you know might need it – please do.

Here’s your photo for NEXT week’s poetic Thursday:

Sweet…………………..the world needs a dose of SWEET!    Share your poem for this photo with us next week and I’ll do the same!    Meanwhile……………………..take care of yourselves please.

I am the Angel Poet in the green beret…..and I hope you join me for POETIC FUN each week!

Love and Angel Hugs…………..Angel Sammy

♥♥♥

Thank you my wise Angel Brother……………..Love, Teddy

It’s Monday and time for SPARKS!   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.

We obviously just celebrated Thanksgiving and now we have the “countdown” to Christmas.    A season of giving……………giving is something that can make you feel EVER so good – watching someone’s expression when they open a gift is a gift in itself!     I spent some time reading over MANY quotes about giving……….then I found this one and it spoke to me:

I had to think about it for a minute too……….which is the kind of quote I enjoy.   One that makes you really think.    I actually believe someone TOLD this to me some years ago – maybe it took a little bit of time for me to “get it”.

Happy Monday!   Hugs, Pam

Angel Sammy and Teddy would be upset if I didn’t remind you that tomorrow is Teaser Teaser class…….the post will pop into your inbox at a surprise time then it’s all systems go! 

Also today is the three year mark of the day that my precious boy Sammy left for the Bridge.   We miss him more than we can express.   Always will.

It’s Monday again and time for us to SPARK together!    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’ve got a very simple SPARK today……………but even though it’s simple that doesn’t mean it isn’t important.

This really hits home with me.   When I was a little girl there were always things that were to be “kept for a special occasion”……….that included everything from the best china, linen, silverware, clothing, special snacks, drinks, ON AND ON AND ON.    I kind of knew it was just my way of Mom saying “not now”……….but that’s part of the reason I love this particular SPARK because saving all those things is silly – every day we’re alive is a special occasion – especially if you’ve ever gone through anything “dramatic” in your life………..traumatic OR dramatic in fact.   So don’t save things for special occasions – let every single day be a special occasion.    Lesson learned!

Today is also Veterans Day.    My Dad was a Veteran………….he was a very proud Air Force officer who served his country and was actually SAD to retire!   He loved military life and we all loved it too because we got to see the world with him.    Happy Veteran’s to everyone who has served their country in any capacity.

I miss you Dad…..and was always proud of you.

Happy Monday………Hugs, Pam
