My frustration over the groaningly slow progress of the construction of our addition is what attracted me to this quote. Lately, I have been feeling as if I just want to go on vacation until it is complete. Add to that the frustration of Sawyer not eating (his food contains his meds) and the inevitable seizures. Of course, it is just this which means a vacation is totally out of the question. So, I will be soldiering on.

Here’s a little information from Wikipedia about the author of today’s quote. Luka Modrić is a 33-year-old Croatian, professional soccer player. He is widely regarded as one of the best midfielders of his generation and the greatest Croatian player of all-time.

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!”

The photo for today’s Spark was taken by Dad Tom on the James River in Virginia. He was on a boat tour dedicated to the viewing and photography of bald eagles and ospreys. The osprey in this photo has just caught a fish with his talons. I will be sharing more photos from this trip in future posts.

Awww Mondays

On a cheery note, Mau is here to join the Awww Mondays blog hop at Comedy Plus. He is a character and always awww worthy.



I not only had to awww when I took this photo, but also when Mauricio carried a felt heart cat toy into the kitchen and set it before me on the kitchen counter for Mother’s Day. What a thoughtful cat my oldest fur child is.

Mau is not the only thoughtful cat. His sweet wife, Allie (Friends Furever), sent me this beautiful card for Mother’s Day. I couldn’t ask for a better furry daughter-in-law.

Join Us Tomorrow

Kitties Blue and I normally take Tuesdays off, but tomorrow will be an exception. You won’t want to miss the post. We’ll be reviewing a terrific new PTU from Smiling Paws Pets. I am so impressed with this carrier; I know you will be as well. And, Kitties Blue will have a coupon code so you can get one for your furry friends at a reduced price from Amazon.

See you then.
