Sparks: Week #30


A Spark of Love from Tabby cats.


My reason for selecting this quote for today’s Spark was prompted by yesterday’s post and Allie and Mau’s love for each other. And with today being National Tabby Day, it seemed appropriate to share this photo of Sawyer and Cooper Murphy. They are best friends and obviously love each other.

I apologize for the fuzzy photo, and hope you can overlook that.

I always like to tell you a little something about the author of the quote. According to Chinese tradition, Lao Tzu (often simply referred to as Laozi) was a 6th century BCE mystic philosopher. He is best known as the author of the Tao Te Ching. This association has led him to be traditionally considered the founder of Taoism. He also is revered as a deity in most religious forms of the Taoist religion. Laos, translated literally from Chinese, means “old master” or “old one,” and is generally considered honorific.

Sawyer, Cooper Murphy and I are joining Annie at McGufffy’s Reader for her Sparks blog hop. In establishing the hop, Annie wrote, “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!” 

This is what makes Sparks so special and why I look forward to participating each week.

If you’d like to join the hop, click on the Sparks badge.


Tabby Cat Club

Sawyer and Cooper Murphy are members of the Tabby Cat Club and will be celebrating National Tabby Day there. If you are a tabby and a member, they’ll see you there. And if you’re a tabby and don’t belong, stop by and check out the fun.

This quote is so true. And I just love this photo of Sawyer and Cooper Murphy. It always makes me feel so happy to see how much fun they have together. Happy National Tabby Day! (I somehow completely forgot it was National Tabby Day, and since my entire kitty crew is tabbies, there is much scorn being sent my way. I deserve it.)
