I know I have shared in the past that I have a friend in California who sends me motivational quotes. I’ve used one or two in the past and am doing so again today.




Even if we choose happiness, it is sometimes difficult to achieve. I am mostly happy; though, this past year has brought us some major challenges. Consequently, I plan to remind myself often of this quote from Voltaire.

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!”

Awww Mondays

We cannot miss joining this fun blog hop hosted each Monday by Sandee at Comedy Plus. Calista Jo is today’s participant. We’ve had a new cat tree in the basement waiting for the addition to be completed. Dad Tom moved it in on Sunday, and C.J. was the first to check it out. (Sorry the photo is so blurry.)
