Though our friend and originator of the Sparks blog hop, Annie (McGuffy’s Reader), remains on a “break” from blogging, we continue to post a Spark each Monday. This was Annie’s vision when beginning the hop: “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!”

Astrid is presenting our Spark for today.


Astrid presents Sparks


It may be a bit difficult for you to read the quote, so here it is: “Promise me you’ll always remember: You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.” A.A. Milne

Astrid is our “fraidy” cat, but that’s no surprise—Misty May absolutely loves to terrorize her. I’d like to convince Astrid that she does have the ability to be brave, strong and smart. Unfortunately, she continues to react to Misty May’s bullying. Even if she’s not able to do so, here’s hoping all of you take Milne’s quote to heart.

I like to give a bit of information about the author of the quote, but in this case I don’t believe that is necessary. As I am certain you all know that A.A. Milne is the creator of Winnie the Pooh, my favorite—Tigger, and all the other characters we love.

Wishing everyone a Monday filled with positivity!
