Happy Monday…………..and it’s time again for SPARKS. 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!
Throughout my life I’ve never had a LOT of friends – I knew a lot of people but knowing someone and maintaining a close friendship with them for me was something different. I had a close circle of people that I totally trusted and loved and they were my real friends. I learned the VALUE of friendship. Because I was a kid growing up in the Air Force with a Dad who moved his family per his assignments every two years, I tended to have three or four “besties”…….and I guess I just continued with that as I aged. I’m still pretty much like that still. I do know lots of people and I really like a lot of people, but still I don’t really have a lot of close friends. I looked for a SPARK about friendship because my husband and I are very fortunate to have some very good friends and we appreciate them so much. Many people cross our paths in our lives but just how many are true friends that stick with us through everything?
Gosh I love this graphic………..it makes my heart happy…………………..just like our friends make my heart happy!
