SPARK on Monday

Standard

It’s Monday!   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!

The SPARK I chose for today is one I could give a LOT of examples of from my life but I won’t.    I think if you consider choices you’ve made, directions you’ve taken, you probably would also give a LOT of examples.   So today’s SPARK is really just a reminder of something we all already know.    At least I’ll admit that – will you?

Happy Monday!   Time for a weekly SPARK.    Just a little thought to get you through………the next hours, next day, next week or WHENEVER.  “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 really do love the SPARK I found to post today.    I’ve told you all before that I look for things that really “speak” to me when I post a SPARK.    Well this one sure does!

I sure like this way of looking at things that don’t go our way……………it’s a chance to do it BETTER.     I thought it interesting it was attributed to Henry Ford – don’t know if it was “THE” Henry Ford but I think it probably was.    Even if it wasn’t “him” it was someone who hit the proverbial nail on the head.    You fail at something – you will try it again probably and that time you will hopefully have learned from your failure, changed your method,  and have a success.     And we ALL like to have successes!

Have a great week ahead.

Now that I’m pretty well “back” from the worst of my recovery period post-surgery, I’m thinking more clearly and spending more time AWAKE (!)……………..I still have outpatient therapy to do but I am SO grateful that I healed so quickly and that I had such wonderful doctors, nurses and therapists taking care of me.     I also am grateful that my husband was here for me as he was my “24/7” carer and I couldn’t have done this well without him.     It gave me a lot of time to think about “us” – and really about the BEST of what we give each other.     My SPARK this week says it so perfectly I could have written it myself – but I didn’t!

 

We balance each other well…………………….I’m the one who’s up up up all the time and he’s the one who needs to be reminded often that the best things are the ones we strive for and reach for.    It’s really SO true.     I really just plain LOVE this SPARK.

Keep reaching for the stars!   Hugs, Pam

SPARK on Monday

Standard

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
