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

Sparks on Monday Blog Hop is the wonderful idea hatched by our good friend and wonderful writer Annie McGuffy………….her thought is that if more people would share an uplifting, inspiring thought, idea, experience with others, it just might give someone else the SPARK they need to carry on – move forward – try a new way of looking at life or just give them a BETTER day!
I loved the idea and we are hoping that SPARKS work to bring the power of positivity into everyone’s life as they join in or participate in this BLOG HOP of Annie’s. If you think you just might have a thought you’d like to share, hop over to McGuffy’s Reader by clicking the SPARKS graphic above – join in the Blog Hop and be a part of this “power” !
This is my SPARK for this Monday – this truly speaks to me in many ways but it’s ALWAYS been my belief that people cross our path for a reason – we learn from them, we’re inspired by them, we change because of them, or we simply are touched in some way by meeting them. They may be in our life for a minute, an hour, or longer – it matters not – but our lives are touched and sometimes only after they are gone do we realize something in OUR lives is different because of them.
I have to admit, I’ve had some truly tough lessons learned at the hands of others in my many years but I LEARNED from the negative and reached out for more positive because of those lessons. Just be OPEN………you may be surprised by the realization that every person you meet is bringing you SOMETHING………..
