As a youngster I spent lots of time with my dad’s parents. When they reached Dad Tom’s and my age, I remember them  constantly talking about how one friend or another had passed away. It seems that is what is happening right now with our friends. This past week two friends died, and they aren’t the first ones of 2021. One was 89 and the other 102, so they both had great long lives. But those losses and other recent ones got me thinking about angels, and that’s what led to today’s Spark.




Sometimes it takes me hours to find just the right Spark, but I knew the moment I saw this quote from Luciano De Crescenzo that it was perfect; though, instead about losing friends, it is about supporting each other.

As is often the case, I was unfamiliar with the author, so I suspect you may be as well. De Crescenzo was an Italian writer, film actor, director and engineer who lived from August 1928 to July 2019.

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.”
