Sparks/Awww Mondays

I am uniting these two posts today with one photo that goes paw-in-paw with my Spark.




Sawyer was impatiently waiting for 11 a.m. (treat time) and decided to clear the counter of everything including the treats, which went first. These clearings were his small pleasures and a tiny success while he waited for the big one—treats, which always bring him happiness.

In an attempt to remain safe and healthy during the pandemic, by staying at home most of the time, I think many of us are relying on the small pleasures and tiny successes. My small pleasures include snuggling purring kitties, working in the garden, texting with friends, reading, riding Peloton, looking at photos of Mau…

My tiny successes have come at physical therapy where I have accomplished things such as standing unaided for two minutes, putting bowls down on the floor and picking them up again without spilling the contents or losing my balance and learning to walk with a heel-toe gait. I have been going to physical therapy twice a week for seven months. My big success, which I know will bring me happiness, will be when I am given my “walking” papers.

What are your small pleasures and tiny successes?

Sparks began as a blog hop, created by our friend, Annie (McGuffy’s Reader). Annie is taking a “break” from blogging, so there is no hop. Many of us still continue to post a Spark on Monday, as we believe in Annie’s vision: “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!

Sawyer will be hopping over to Comedy Plus for Awww Mondays. If you’d like to  join him, click on the badge below.
