Sparks: Week #13


Sawyer and Lily Olivia - Friendship


All of us were surprised when we came upon this scene. The youngest among us has befriended the oldest. And this was not a one-time occurrence. There is photographic evidence that this is now a regular event. Granted this is a very warm spot in the house, and the temperature has been staying below freezing. But that Lily Olivia is allowing this camaraderie is truly a holiday miracle.

Our quote this week is from Hans Göran Persson. He served as Prime Minister of Sweden from 1996 to 2006 and was leader of the Swedish Social Democratic Party from 1996 to 2007.

Sparks is a weekly blog hop established and hosted by Annie at McGuffy’s Reader. In establishing the hop, she wrote this, “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!”

As we close out 2017 and welcome a new year, we wish you all only good things in 2018. Thank you so much for being our friends and supporters.

Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer

So poignant seeing your youngest with Lily Olivia.
I know it’s a cruel irony that the one member of the family who would be most comforting during a time of loss is the one you have to grieve. She was so loved.
I send you my love and strength.

Sawyer has shown Lily Olivia that’s he’s a safe cuddle buddy.

Happy New Year to all of you there at Kitties Blue. I was pleased to read about Cooper Murphy, and now Sawyer, coming into your household in 2017. The photo of Sawyer and Lady Olivia is beautiful. All the best to you in 2018!

I love it……..Lily Olivia allowing Sawyer close is certainly a special holiday occurrence indeed – they both look to be enjoying the warmth…..and let’s say maybe it’s just a little “sign” that the new year means more friendship and love around the world even between people who wouldn’t otherwise even TRY. Lily Olivia and Sawyer are sending a new years’ message…….Let’s All Get Along!!

Love the photo………..Happy NEW YEAR!
Hugs, Pam and Teddy

Animals have a deeper understanding about what and who is important. Clyde does this with Maggie. He is so sweet and gentle with her. She loves them all. I am glad that Sawyer has found a place with Lily Olivia. ❤❤
