I was looking for a Spark about gratitude, when I found this quote. Though gratitude is mentioned, this Spark says so much more.


happiness is an spiritual experience: tortie cat peeking out of her tunnel


I felt I needed a photo that made me happy to accompany the Spark. This one of Astrid peeking out of the tunnel is from 2015, and I did share it back then. I hope it makes you smile.

The quote’s author was unfamiliar to me. Here’s a bit about him. Denis E. Waitley is an 89-year-old, American motivational speaker, writer and consultant. He’s been recognized as the best-selling author of books such as “Seeds of Greatness” and “The Winner’s Edge,” as well as the audio series, The Psychology of Winning. Waitley has been inducted into the International Speakers’ Hall of Fame.

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.”
