I had planned this Spark for last week, but I was having trouble with the graphic and so did not post. But it spoke to me, and I really wanted to use it. So, I worked on it again for this week.

This Spark represents how I feel, and I believe how Sawyer feels as well even if he cannot verbalize it. His journey has never been easy, but he lives every day to the best of his abilities…just as I do.

I selected this photo of Sawyer to represent the Spark, as he is holding a heart that was a gift to Mau from Allie. The photo was taken after both had left us, and I think the heart was offering Sawyer some comfort. I know seeing him with it was comforting to me.

I was unfamiliar with the author of today’s Spark, so I suspect you may be unfamiliar with him as well. James Edward McGreevey is an American politician and member of the Democratic Party. He served as the 52nd Governor of New Jersey from 2002 until his resignation in 2004 following the revelation of an extramarital affair. So McGreevey may not have the highest morals, but that does not discount the insight of his statement.

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.”
