A field of poppies with a quote from Michael J. Fox: "With gratitude optimism is sustainable."


On April 30, 2023, Michael J. Fox appeared on CBS’s Sunday Morning. Jane Pauley interviewed him. During the interview he made this statement. It struck me as so true and profound. Fox has been dealing with worsening Parkinson’s disease since 1991, yet he remains upbeat and considers himself a Lucky Man, which is the title of his 2002 memoir.

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.”
