Sparks? What’s that? Well it’s just what you probably think it is – it’s a special message to SPARK you into having a great week. It will start your week off with a SPARK and give you some inspirational thought to carry you through. SPARKS sparkle in our imaginations and make us move forward with enthusiasm!
Here’s my inspiring SPARK for this week……………………..a rather uncomplicated thought but maybe it will speak to you like it does to me?
I will be very happy when we’re all back in the light…………….stay strong and do the healthy thing even if it’s difficult………..we will get through this tough and challenging time!
Encouraging VIRTUAL Hugs, Pam
A reminder from the Ding Dong School Professors that tomorrow is TEASER TUESDAY – yes we will all be agonizing over another photograph trying to figure out WHERE it was taken. We have fun……..everyone is welcome in class! Remember that the post doesn’t appear in your inbox at the USUAL time – it’s always a surprise time just to make it more interesting! SEE YOU “WHENEVER” TOMORROW!♥
Monday is here again………………..and it’s time to SHARE A 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.
Tough times right now for lots of folks………..many are out of work due to the virus for one thing but there are a LOT of reasons that people are at loose ends. Getting together with friends in person is tough. We’re relying on the internet to keep us more together than we would be otherwise. I know I’m visiting a lot of new blogs – kind of stretching my circle of daily visits a bit. I’m retired so not missing work (thank heavens) but still, I want to be BUSY so I don’t have to think about the state of things right now. I’m staying positive though. That’s just who I am.
This is a time when sharing a SPARK is probably even more important than EVER…………….don’t you think?
These two know what they’re talking about don’t they. They usually do (!). Right now it’s hard not to worry but as we already know, worrying doesn’t change things. Maybe it’s time to look around and find all the good stuff. That’s what I’m trying to do. Part of the good stuff is staying in touch (even if it’s not as CLOSE as I wish it was) with friends and family. Blogging is doing that for sure. We’ve had this blog for almost 9 years (next month will be 9). I’m glad in MANY ways I started but even more glad that I’m still here – it’s times like these you’re happy to have friends!

Safe Hugs, Pam
Angel Sammy and Teddy remind all of you students at their Tuesday Teaser Geography Class here on the blog that you’d better be in class tomorrow to guess where the photo they show you was taken…….good luck!
I’m back to SPARKING on Monday instead of having a Teaser preparation class. 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.
I think it’s always good to start your week out with an uplifting or inspiring thought…..then I “use” it as my weekly theme and keep it at the top of my mind all week long. If you know me, you know that I talk a LOT about being positive and what that can do to your life if you can LIVE within a circle of positivity. Not always easy I know but I really do try VERY hard to stay positive. Here are a couple of things: one is just a SAYING and the other a “visual” of letting go of negative and watching positivity take over.
I love the graphic with the barbed wire transforming into a dove………..and I truly DO believe that if you can’t live in POSITIVITY if you have a negative mindset. The key is recognizing that and acknowledging it……then you can change it!
Teaser Class – remember tomorrow is TEASER TUESDAY and the post will be at a surprise time!
BE READY to guess where the photo was taken.
