Sparks/Awww Mondays


Memorial Day Spark


Memorial Day traditionally remembers those who have given their lives in service of their country. Regardless, I like this quote from British singer/songwriter/actor and lead singer of The Animals rock band, Eric Burden. So, I chose it for my Spark today.

Sparks is the creation of Annie from McGuffy’s Reader. Sparks began as a blog hop, created by our friend. Annie stated when she began Sparks,“I believe we are meant to be lights in this world. If we allow our light to shine, we can see where we are going. It is then that we can begin to truly see each other clearly. Together, we can light up the entire world.”

Cooper Murphy and Kizmet, who joined me to present today’s Spark, are participating in the Awww Mondays blog hop hosted by Sandee at Comedy Plus. If you’d like to do the same, click on the Comedy Plus badge.

Your favorite, fun-loving tabbies will be sharing another of their adventures tomorrow. Please stop by Friends Furever to see what the heck they get up to or into. It definitely will be something fun!

Yes, I don’t think most people remember those who were mentioned in that quote. I will be thinking about that now.

Eric Burden is right on with that saying. All should be honoured for their service.

Tyebe sends paw kisses to Coop. Big hugs too.

In Canada we have Remembrance Day in October. It was originally to remember people who served in the wars, but it now celebrates all who have served, But i love the quote by Eric Burden. So much more inclusive. Purrfect Spark! Thanks for sharing and I hope you all have had a marvellously happy Memorial day weekend.

Indeed – everyone who served and stayed in service as well as those who served and left service to return to a fulfilling life in ANY field deserve to be remembered. Cooper and Kizmet look very patriotic today…….!! Happy Memorial Day.

Hugs, Teddy (and Mom)
