Today’s Spark was selected by both Mom and me. After I share it with you, I’ll tell you why.

As I am a gentleman, I will share Mom’s reason first. A couple of week’s ago, the Friendly Fill-Ins (hosted by Ellen from 15 And Meowing and Lorianne from Four-Legged Furballs) offered this sentence to be completed: “If I had to choose a guide word for 2019, it would be (blank).” Mom selected the word perseverance. Persistence is a synonym for perseverance. Never giving up on yourself is he best gift you can give yourself, according to Mom.

I selected this Spark after having a small, focal seizure Saturday night. Mom and Dad were able to keep me calm by holding me until it passed. I did cover all of us in enough drool to fill a swimming pool. This was my first seizure since adding a new med to my regime after the December 19 seizure that landed be in the hospital for two days. Not only am I going to remain confident that I will never have one of those terrible seizures again, but Mom and Dad also will do the same. And they both will persevere at making certain I take all my meds everyday.

So that’s why we selected this quote from Khalid as our Spark. For those (like us) who had not heard of Khalid, here’s a little info about him.

Khalid Donnel Robinson is a 20-year-old, American singer and songwriter in the R&B genre. His debut single, “Location,” was released in July 2016, peaked at number 16 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart and was certified quadruple platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). In 2017, Khalid won a VMA (Video Music Award) for Best New Artist.

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 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!”
