Social distancing sucks! Though I am thankful to be able to keep up with friends via texting, e-mails and the phone, I miss spending time with my local friends. I believe it is time to learn how to use Zoom.

Missing friends is what prompted my Spark for today, for which my three boys were happy to pose, just as long as they didn’t have to wake up.



Today’s Spark is from Saint Thomas Aquinas, a 13th century Italian Dominican friar, influential philosopher, theologian, Catholic priest, and Doctor of the Church.

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!”

The Adventures of Periwinkle & Stinky

Thankfully, our two favorite adventuring tabbies, Periwinkle & Stinky, don’t have to practice social distancing. That means they will be off on another adventure tomorrow. You can read it right here at The Cat on My Head, and Stinky and Periwinkle have their paws crossed you will join them.
