With yesterday being Mother’s Day and the war still raging in the Ukraine, I think the Spark I selected for today is appropriate, and I totally believe it to be true.

I used one of Dad Tom’s sunflower photos from 2017, as the sunflower is the national flower of Ukraine.

The author of today’s Spark, E.M. (Edward Morgan) Forster (1879 – 1970) was an English fiction writer, essayist and librettist. His novels include, A Room with a View, Howards End and A Passage to India. The latter brought him his greatest success. He was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature in 20 separate years.

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.”
