SPARK on Monday



And another week begins……………….maybe a little thought for the week is in order? 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.

I hear from so many that they are feeling many things just slipping away.    Missing friends, feeling isolated as we stay home more, wondering when we’ll see the light in the end of this tunnel.   I guess for me anyway it’s more important than ever to have HOPE.    I love this quote.   Really.

Being a positive person I pretty much have hope in my heart every day but more so now than EVER before.     Try to keep it alive in your heart too.

I know it’s not easy – believe me I really do – but I think it’s important enough to make it my “mantra” for the week…………….HOPE.

Make it a GOOD and hopeful week!    Love, Pam

SPARK on Monday


Monday SPARK time!   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.

I ran across this one while searching for just the right thought to share today…………..gosh it’s EVER so true too which is the BEST kind of SPARK if you ask me!

I’m basically a happy person – always have been………my Mom said I was a very happy baby (of course I don’t remember that!) but my good nature has served me well.    I think it’s gotten me through the worst of times in fact.    Not that I haven’t had my share of sadness – that’s a part of life after all – just that when the dust settles I “move” back into my happy place.   I really am glad to be alive even in these uncertain times.    It’s not exactly the picture I had in  my mind of what my life would be like at this point in time but then I daresay everyone feels that way right now with so many worrisome things going on.    That’s the way LIFE is though.   Up/down and sometimes calm in between.    BUT I’m STILL HERE!

Have a POSITIVE week!   Love, Pam
