SPARK and Reminder

December 2, 2019

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.

 

SPARKS and Reminder

November 11, 2019

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

 

Teddy says “don’t forget tomorrow is TEASER TUESDAY……the post will be live at a special surprise time” and we have a great photo for you to guess from a Guest Teaser!!”   

 

SPARK and Teaser Reminder

September 9, 2019

Time to 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.

Today’s SPARK is one of my favorites………………..I read this a long time ago and still believe it totally………………the value of friendship can’t be overstated………….!

Hopefully everyone has at least one really good friend to get them through the bad times, share the good times with, and remind us all of the real VALUE of not just HAVING a friend but BEING a friend.

Happy Monday!

Hugs, Pam

P.S.  I was asked to remind everyone that tomorrow is Teaser Tuesday – heaven forbid you should forget that – if you did, Angel Sammy and Teddy would give you a demerit in class and I’d get in trouble for not reminding you!!

 

SPARKS for Monday

August 12, 2019

It’s Monday and time to share a SPARK for the week!    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.

While looking for a spark to share about listening – something some of us THINK we do but maybe not as well as we could – I saw this great quote from Winston Churchill.    It says what I wanted to say so I’ll share it, then go about my Monday!

Yep – that sums it up!   Happy Monday!   

Love, Pam

Monday SPARK

July 22, 2019

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.

Our SPARK today is sort of a reminder to us that when life doesn’t go “our way” – that’s not necessarily a BAD thing!

One door closes and another one opens.     Sometimes what we thought would be our future doesn’t turn out that way so we find a NEW future.    I like this quote a lot…….it speaks to me and maybe it will speak to you too?

Monday Hugs, Pam

A P.S. Message from Teddy:    Teaser Fans – don’t forget – tomorrow is Teaser Tuesday – post up at a surprise time – it’s a GUEST TEASER PHOTO!   Be ready to comment first thing………..see you at school.
