PHOTO OF PURPLE TULIPS WITH THE FOLLOWING QUOTE, "Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems," by Rainer Maria Rilke


When I discovered this quote, it made me happy, and I knew I had to share it. I have placed it on one of Dad Tom’s photos of tulips in our yard.

Sparks is the creation of Annie from McGuffy’s Reader. Sparks began as a blog hop, created by our friend. Annie stated when she began Sparks, “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.”

Raleigh and I apologize for his blurry photo. I took it from a video. I think he is darn awww-adorable, but I wish he wasn’t afraid of Dad Tom and I and would let us touch him. He will be participating in the Awww Mondays blog hop at Comedy Plus. If you’d like to do the same, click on the Awww badge.
