I believe today’s Spark is self-explanatory. It clearly describes how I feel about Christmas.

The author of today’s Spark, Thomas Spencer Monson (1927 – 2018) was an American religious leader, author, and the 16th President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church).

As I’ve been reminding you for months, 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.”

Dad Tom took this blurry photo of Misty May while she was in his lap at the kitchen island. He entitled it, “Subbing for Mau.” This was Mau’s spot almost every night after dinner. Some of you may recall photos of Mau in this exact spot.

Misty May is participating in the Awww Mondays blog hop at Comedy Plus. To join her, click on the Awww Mondays badge.

That’s a great Spark. And Misty May looks very happy sitting in her dad’s lap.

Bet Misty May wanted to be in that lap, while Angel Mau had commandeered it before!
Now she has free rein.

That’s a great spark……and it really is a reflection of the meaning of Christmas. How SWEET that Misty May took up the position on Dad Tom’s lap that Angel Mau used to occupy – that’s a message if ever there was one! 🙂

Love, Pam and Teddy too
