SPARK on Monday

Standard

Happy Monday.   Hope everyone had a great Easter or Passover……………..it’s time for a Monday thought – a little something to get us through another week.  Everyone is invited to participate by posting their OWN thoughts – 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 found another little gem…………from one of my favorite Winnie The Pooh characters.    You don’t have to be BIG to be wise.   Piglet knows what he’s talking about!

Those little things that perhaps someone does for you unexpectedly – just a simple thing – small even – but makes your heart just want to burst with “happy”.     A good example is something I can recall from my “babysitting” days.    This was many years ago – I was 12 I think and babysitting two little kids that lived next door to us.   Their Mom had a fast errand to do and I was just watching the 3 year old and the 2 year old was napping.     The three year old came over to me with a HUGE smile on her face holding a dandelion in her little fist – found out she’d picked it for her Mom earlier in the day and it was in a glass of water in the kitchen.    She handed me the dandelion and said “I love you”…….can you imagine how that made me feel?   A half dead little flower but she gave it to me (of course I put it back in the water for her Mom) and said she loved me.    Little thing but HUGE at the time and still HUGE enough that I think about it once in a while.

Bet you can think of things like that if you just think about it!    Piglet knows the best stuff doesn’t he????    Have a great week.
