When I needed to find a Spark for today’s post, the word perseverance popped into my head. First I found the quote by famous soccer star, Pele, and then one of Dad Tom’s photos of an industrious squirrel. I am certain it’s not enjoying what it’s doing, but the squirrel definitely is persevering.

Sparks is the creation of Annie from McGuffy’s Reader. Sparks began as a blog hop, created by our friend. Annie stated when she began Sparks, “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


Tomorrow is our favorite day of the week, as it’s when Periwinkle and Stinky share an adventure. It’s Periwinkle’s turn to plan the event, so you’ll want to check out Friends Furever tomorrow to find out what our tabbies get up to. These two youngsters have lots of fun when they are together and love sharing their adventures with all of you.

What a pretty picture. Wondering if Mr. Squirrel is digging for a nut he buried…or trying to get into the warmth of the house!

Thank you for your kind words and visiting me after I ran off to the bridge. Our friendship will always be. All of the Kitty Blues Angels were waiting for me and we spent a lot of time catching up on things.
Forever everyone at your place will be a dear friend.

That is a good quote. Mentioning perseverance made me think of a quote by Babe Ruth: “You just can’t beat the person who never gives up.”

“If at first you don’t succeed, try try again” and I think about that a lot. Life throws us a lot of curve balls and if we just keep our eye on the prize – that which we really truly want – we can often persevere and get it. It’s not being stubborn – it’s being “dedicated” and patient. Great Spark for a Monday!

Hugs, Pam

Great minds think alike – my first meme for today ( was Perseverance is stubbornness with a purpose. Coincidence?

LOULOU January 10, 2022 at 4:56 am

Yes, perserverance and yes, PELE!!!! What a player. We have watched his career and love seeing past videos. Soccer fans here, of the Roma….if only they could get their act together! Mama is the couch coach during games. You don’t want to hear what she has to say…haha.

That squirrel sure has to persevere to get any food, stolen or not!

Yes, never give up…some things take ages to be realized and then the wait and the hard work pays off!
