Today’s Spark is being presented by special friends, Periwinkle and Stinky.
Periwinkle and Stinky are thankful to be friends, and I am super grateful to have a few good friends, some of them other bloggers.
Baltasar Gracián y Morales, the author of today’s Spark, was a 17th century Spanish Jesuit priest, baroque prose writer and philosopher. His writings were lauded by Schopenhauer and Nietzsche.
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. Please continue to send prayers to Annie and her family as they work to get their lives back to normal.
Many of us believe in Annie’s vision: “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!”
These two cutie pies are joining the blog hop at Comedy Plus, as they are both super awww-dorable.
And while they are here, they want to remind you to join them for their next adventure tomorrow at Friends Furever.
That is true. Over my life, I’ve pushed most of my friends away. It makes me sad sometimes to think about. The worst part is the pushing away was more for over-empathy – I just couldn’t separate my feelings from theirs and I couldn’t fix whatever was paining them.
Spark Periwinkle and Stinky We really like this one. Friends are the best thing you can have in the world and if you have one hands worth you are blessed beyond belief. Purrs friends
Great spark. True friends are worth their weight in gold
That is a wonderful spark. I like that you tell us about the person who said it. XO
Beautiful spark! I find that friendship with cats takes at the most a year to cement, with the ferals anyway, much quicker for the domesticated. Humans however, that is more iffy.
That was a real good one you two!
I like your SPARK and it is so true. Friends make everything more fun or easier to take.
What a great Spark. A good friend is hard to find.
Beautiful spark ! Purrs
