Tomorrow is Best Friends Day, which prompted my selection of today’s Spark.


best friends


Mau was always a great friend to and protector of Astrid. I believe Astrid knew Mau was going to be getting his wings when Dad Tom and I didn’t. The night before he left us, Astrid curled up almost on top of him, as if she were protecting him and letting him know how much he was loved.

I was unfamiliar with the author of today’s quote, Yolanda Hadid, but then I watch very little reality TV. Hadid is a 57-year-old, Dutch-American television personality and former model. She is best known as one of the stars of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

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.”

Your favorite, fun-loving best friends will be sharing another of their adventures tomorrow. Please stop by here to see what the heck they get up to or into. I suspect it will have something to do with Best Friends Day.

We know that Astrid knew. Some cats are attuned to things we can’t perceive. I love that quote! What a great shot (and story) to go with today’s spark.

Of course Astrid knew!
Cats know everything…even how to solve my daily Sudoku puzzles…but they never, EVER tell.
Purrs and hugs as you remember Angel Mau.

Oh we cats are so very sensitive…..we know things…..lots of things and SEE lots of stuff humans don’t see. May was lucky to have the companionship when he needed it most. Love that quote – Mom says it is VERY VERY true too.

Hugs, Teddy

That is a very sweet picture of Angel Mau and Astrid.

I have some good friends that even if I haven’t seen them in ages, even years, we just pick up like we never had any time away from eachother.
