Most of us have had no choice in the current direction of our lives, and some days acceptance is nearly impossible, making patience and faith essential to survival.
This is the third time I have used a quote from Ralph Marston for my Spark. Marston was a football player who attended Boston University. He spent a season as a professional in the National Football League in 1929 with the Boston Bulldogs as a quarterback.
This photo of one of my flower beds was taken by Dad Tom.
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!”
Astrid loves her big brother, Mau. Sometimes he barely tolerates her, but at other times he gives her the comfort and protection she craves. Feel free to squee.
Mau and Astrid are joining the Awww Mondays blog hop at ComedyPlus.
The Adventures of Periwinkle & Stinky
This fun-loving, tabby duo will return tomorrow with the next installment in their adventure series. It is Periwinkle’s week to post, so look for them over at Friends Furever. I know both Periwinkle and Stinky will be looking forward to seeing you there tomorrow.
Awwww. Great kitty hug photo.
Mau seems like the most laid-back, fun-loving man cat. You say he sometimes barely tolerates Astrid, but that picture shows all love.
That is a great spark and an adorable photo.
What a sweet pic of Astrid and Mau.
darling kitties! such a sweet photo! Cheers and be well!
I love the Spark and Awww on the kitties. That’s the most adorable shot.
I’ll be back tomorrow to see what’s up with Periwinkle and Stinky. Such fun.
Thank you for joining the Awww Mondays Blog Hop.
Have a fabulous Awww Monday and week. Scritches to all the kitties and a big hug for the mom. ♥
Great Spark! We are TOTALLY squeeing over that photo! Allie wishes it was here there too!
The Florida Furkids with smoochies and love to Mau from Allie and paw pats and headbonks to Sawyer from Noelle
That’s a nice Spark and a super adorable snuggle photo!
We never understood why Chuck and Angel, who were in utero together, just didn’t snuggle and love on each other! Manny and Chili Bruce do all of the time, in between bouts of wrastling, and we aren’t 100% sure that they are related!
That is definitely an AWW photo of Astrid and Mau! Lovely photo and a timely and true quote!
What an adorable photo of Mau giving Astrid a hug……we all need a hug from time to time. That quote is a good one to start our week off for sure….accepting things as they are and working within that acceptance are sometimes easier said than done but ARE doable!
OMC, what an adorable photo of Mau and Astrid. They look so cute and cuddly together. Now that’s love!
