When I started thinking about a Spark for today the word, enthusiasm, popped into my mind. It is often hard these days to become enthusiastic about anything. When I found this quote from Dale Carnegie, I knew it was just the reminder I needed to get off my @$$ and get excited about life again. After all, I certainly am not getting younger.


INVITE ENTHUSIASM SPARK INTO YOUR LIFE: tongue out grey cat plays with you and presents quote from Dale Carnegie: Today is life-the only life you are sure of. Make the most of today. Get interested in something. Shake yourself awake. Develop a hobby. Let the winds of enthusiasm sweep through you. Live today with gusto.


I selected Kizmet as my representation of enthusiasm. As the youngster among the Kitties Blue, it is not a surprise she’s the one who gets most excited about things she encounters. In today’s blurry photo she is playing with a toy from one of the monthly Cat Lady Boxes. She knows when the box arrives there are two cat toys inside, and she always grabs one as soon as the box is opened. As with this one, she usually doesn’t even give me the opportunity to take the tag off.

I hope each of you who stop by find something to be enthusiastic about today.

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.”
