SPARKS on Monday


Is it REALLY Monday again?    They are popping up like popcorn these days – WHAMMO the week is gone.   What’s with that?  Oh well.  Let’s make the best of it and do our SPARKS.   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!

Not sure where the seed for my SPARK today came from – might have been when I was watching my adorable cat Teddy napping on his back at my feet the other day.   Sometimes I am just so full of love for him.    Like I am for David but in a slightly different way.   ANYWAY, I found a really lovely SPARK about love that I’m sharing for this Monday’s thought.

You know – it’s really true isn’t it.    I can clearly hear the songs of some people in my life and others – well – I can just hear crickets like nobody is home.   LOL    This particular thought about love is FUN too.    It captures the magic of love.    I’ve always been a fan of MAGIC!

Happy Monday and have a great week…………………….

Love, Pam

SPARK on Monday


Time for a little “thought for the week”. Something to jumpstart our minds for the week ahead. We’ve had a lot of tough weeks this past year…………..but here we are.  Mondays are the start of a new week and why not start that week with a thought or message or reminder of the fact that Mondays set the tone for the week ahead – why not make it powerful.     That was the idea that Annie McGuffy of McGuffy’s Reader had when she began the SPARK posts a few years ago – before her blog was hacked and she stopped posting. We hope she will be back soon – we miss her but in her honor many of us have been carrying the SPARKS torch on Mondays.   Just something to make us stop and think – prepare us for facing a new day – and facing a holiday that will be here before you know it!   

Some time soon we hope we will look back at what has been happening in our lives and wonder just how we did it…………faith?  Certainly.   Believing?   Certainly.    Staying strong?   Absolutely.   All of those thoughts went through my mind when I was looking for my SPARK this week and this is what I felt was “the one” to share:

No we will never surrender…………….we put one foot in front of the other and go forward.    Because we JUST DO.    

Hope your week ahead is good.    Until we meet again next Monday!

Hugs, Pam
