Since the inception of Sparks, many participants have posted Sparks about kindness, including me. In this time of senseless bullying and killings, I don’t think we can remind each other enough to be kind.



Though this quote speaks to humans, we all know it is just as important to show kindness to our beloved pets and all animals.

If you are unfamiliar with Henry James, he was and American/English author who lived from April, 1843, to February, 1916. He is considered by many to be among the greatest novelists in the English language. You may be familiar with some of his novels, such as The Portrait of a Lady, The Ambassadors and The Turn of the Screw. James was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1911, 1912 and 1916

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!”
