Sparks - Jules Renard - action


Unlike these birds, don’t sit around waiting for what you want. Put on your big girl/guy panties and go out and get it!

Today’s quote is from Pierre-Jules Renard or Jules Renard, who lived from 1864 to 1910. Renard was a French author and member of the Académie Goncourt. He wrote poems, short stories, short plays, novels and his famous Poil de carotte (Carrot Top, 1894).

This is another of Dad Tom’s photos. The squirrels and birds are a constant source of entertainment not just for the kitties but also for Dad Tom and me.

Today I am including an additional quote/Spark from Senator John McCain (August 29, 1936 – August 25, 2018). Regardless of your political party, I think you can admit he was a great American and hero who always had the best interests of our country and people at heart.

“Courage is not the absence of fear, but the capacity to act despite our fears.”

Sparks began as a blog hop, created by our friend, Annie (McGuffy’s Reader). Annie currently is on a well-deserved “break” from blogging, so there is no hop. However, many of us continue to post a Spark on Monday, as we totally agree with 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!”

Great Sparks guys,
We love both of them. We LOVE the picture Dad took! And we like McCain. He was a real straight up kind of guy.

These are great sparks. Our mom is very sad that John McCain passed – she thinks he was a great man and more people should follow his example.

Another terrific photo, and quote.

Love the quote and it’s ever so true. We can and are often held back because of inaction.

Love that shot. I linked this post to Awww Mondays. I would be watching that often too.

Have a fabulous day and week. ♥

That is a great picture!

What a fabulous photo and quote. I just love all the birds sitting there posing! Squirrels around here used to do such gymnastics to get to our bird feeder that we had hanging! That is, until the bear ripped it down and completely destroyed it! 😛

What a wonderful photo of wildlife visiting the Kitties Blue “oasis” ! Patient birds waiting for Mr. Squirrel to finish hogging the birdseed is a regular sight here too. We love the quotes…..”GO FOR IT” is our motto here too!!

Love and Happy Monday
