I had selected this photo, which Dad Tom took from our upper deck on Independence Day, and the quote from Golda Meir to post as our Spark a few weeks ago. But at the time, Sawyer was still on his unauthorized adventure, and it just didn’t feel right at the time.

I hope it speaks to you as it does to me, as a reminder to always strive to do your best.

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.”

Awww Mondays

Today’s “awww” photo is the purrfect accompaniment for our Sparks post, as Cooper Murphy and Calista Jo sprung apart immediately after their noses touched as if shocked by a spark of electricity.
