The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort
and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

I have reprinted today’s Spark beneath the photo, as what seemed readable when I created it does not seem to be now.

I particularly like this quote by Martin Luther King Jr., as it reminds us that we must remain responsible and be cognizant of the possible results of our actions. We should do this always, but it is especially important right now.  Stay home, stay safe and stay healthy not just for yourself but for all the humans on our planet.

I took this photo in our yard on Saturday. I used it for the Spark, as I thought it might brighten your day.

SparkSparks 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!”

Awww Mondays

Mauricio asked me to share a photo of how he spent his easy on Sunday afternoon. It was an unseasonably 81 degrees F, and he was snoozing on a table on the front porch.



If he can raise himself for a moment from his prone position, Mau will be hopping over to the Awww Mondays blog hop at Comedy Plus. To do the same, click on the badge below.

Thank You

Astrid asked me to say, “thanks” to everyone who came by yesterday to wish Sampy (Kitty Cat Chronicles) a happy birthday and join our hop. We always appreciate each and every anipal that joins the hop, and we are are especially thankful when you join us on these joyous occasions.
