Kitties Blue know how to tell time. Their tummy clocks go off when it is time to eat. But they cannot tell one day from the next. So, when I told Misty May that her birthday is this Wednesday, she gladly accepted that information and passed it on to you. Unfortunately, I was wrong, which has prompted today’s Spark.

There are two birthdays this week, but neither belong to Misty May. Her birthday is next month. On Wednesday we will be celebrating and having a party, but it will be for Astrid and Lisbeth who will be turning 11. 

We will not be having a comment-a-thon. I am saving that for Misty May’s birthday on September 17. 

I’d like to thank Angel Charles’ mom, Inge, and Angel Mau’s mom-in-law, Sharon, for catching my mistake and setting me straight.

The author of today’s Spark, William Arthur Ward, was an American motivational writer with 100+ articles, poems and meditations written and published in such magazines as Reader’s Digest.

Sparks began as a blog hop, created by our friend, Annie (McGuffy’s Reader). Annie is taking a “break” from blogging, so there is no hop. Many of us still continue to post a Spark on Monday, as we believe in Annie’s vision: “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!”

The Adventures of Periwinkle & Stinky

This fun-loving, tabby duo will return tomorrow with the next installment in their adventure series. It is Stinky’s week to plan and post their adventure, so look for them right here tomorrow. I know both Periwinkle and Stinky will be looking forward to seeing all of you.
