Today’s Spark was sent to me by a non-blogging friend when I really needed it. I know some of my other friends can benefit from this reminder as well, and I think it will resonate with most of you reading this.




I was unfamiliar with Lori Deschene and found the following information on Amazon. She is a Type-A personality overachiever, believing this will prove her worth, value and lovability. (I can totally relate to this!) Deschene has traveled throughout the USA for work, lived in multiple states, recovered from a more than 10-year battle with bulimia and healed from major depression.

She is the author of Tiny Buddha: Simple Wisdom for Life’s Hard Questions, Tiny Buddha’s Guide to Loving Yourself, Tiny Buddha’s 365 Tiny Love Challenges, Tiny Buddha’s Gratitude Journal, and Tiny Buddha’s Worry Journal. Currently she’s devoting her energy to the newly launched Tiny Buddha Productions and working on her first feature film.

You can read much more about author Deschene on Amazon.com.

Sparks began as a blog hop, created by our friend, Annie (McGuffy’s Reader). Annie has been taking a “break” from blogging, so there is no hop. Unfortunately, during this break, Annie has been the victim of a hacker. This has continued to keep her off-line and caused her much distress. Kitties Blue and I ask for your continued prayers for Annie and her family as they try to reconcile this mess and get their lives back to normal.

Many of us believe in Annie’s vision: “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!”
