I have posted several Sparks dealing with friendship. I think it is one of the most important relationships we can have in our lives. The support a friend can offer in good times and bad is priceless.


Sparks and Awww Mondays


The author of today’s quote, H. (Harriett) Jackson Brown Jr. is an American author known for his inspirational books, Life’s Little Instruction Book, and it’s sequelLife’s Little Instruction Book: Volume 2. Both were on the New York Times bestseller list in the early ’90s.

Though our host, Annie (McGuffy’s Reader), of the Sparks Blog Hop is taking a much deserved break from blogging and our Sparks post is not part of a hop, I continue to ascribe to Annie’s vision when starting the Sparks hop: “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!”

I will continue to post a Spark on Mondays unless some other subject should take precedent.

Mau must be popular – I think we’ve seen him with everyone except maybe Astrid? Bros are the best though!

True friends are so important : they love us as we are, tell us the truth even if it’s hard, help us, support us, comfort us. No need to have elebenty bazillion of friends, just good and true ones. Purrs

Friends are something I am grateful for with all my heart. I include my CB friends. They are just as much a part of the family of friends in my heart as those I see with my eyes so to speak, each day.

Teddy May 21, 2018 at 5:02 am

You are right…..friends are SOOO important; they help us figure stuff out, they support our decisions when we make them, they comfort us when we’re sad and celebrate with us when we’re happy……..where would we be without friends? We just love the photo of Mau giving Coop’s ear a nuzzle. Brothers are real pals. This is a great spark.

Love, Teddy
