Today’s Spark makes me think of Mauricio and his strong desire to break out of the house at night. As he is a cat, and I am responsible for his safety and well being, he can have a totally positive attitude and persevere all he wants, but he ain’t going anywhere. But for those of us who are humans, this philosophy will serve us well.

I was unfamiliar with Rose Namajunas (aka Thug), so I expect many of you are as well. She is a 27-year-old American, mixed martial artist. Currently, she is signed to Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), where she competes in the women’s strawweight division. She is a former UFC champion in that division.

Sparks began as a blog hop, created by our friend, Annie (McGuffy’s Reader). Annie has been taking a “break” from blogging, so there is no hop. Unfortunately, during this break, Annie has been the victim of a hacker. This has continued to keep her off-line and caused her much distress. Please continue to send prayers to Annie and her family as they work to get their lives back to normal.

Many of us believe in Annie’s vision: “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!”
