I have made so many great friends since beginning this blog in 2012. Today I am acknowledging that with my Spark.

The author, Valentin Louis Georges Eugène Marcel Proust (10 July 1871 – 18 November 1922) was a French novelist, critic and essayist best known for his monumental novel, In Search of Lost Time; earlier entitled, Remembrance of Things Past, published in seven parts between 1913 and 1927. He is considered by critics and writers to be one of the most influential authors of the 20th century.

The photo was taken last summer in our yard.

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!”

Awww Mondays

For the Awww Mondays blog hop at Comedy Plus, I have selected a flashback photo of our angel, Fiona, from July 2015. She was so beautiful and special, and I miss her everyday.

You are so right about the friends we meet while blogging. We have seen some of our blogging friends and they are as great and entertaining in person as they are in the blogging world. Those that we haven’t met….yet… are just as important to us. All are friends. One day we will meet more blogging friends.

Fiona was a gorgeous gal but you know that.

I so agree about friendships. I’ve met so many blogging buddies and they are all so very special. Many I’ve not met, but feel ever so close to. You’re one of those.

Awww on Angel Fiona. They do embed themselves in our hearts and remain there forever.

Thank you for joining the Awww Mondays Blog Hop.

Have a fabulous Awww Monday and week. Scritches to all the kitties and a big hug to you. ♥

What a great Spark……..and we are betting that your garden this Spring is even prettier in the “refurbished” yard………… for “pretty” – Fiona certainly was that and then some. Happy Monday.

Hugs, Teddy and Mom Pam too
