I was thinking about how grateful I am for all the friends who supported us during our search for Sawyer, especially when our spirits were sagging. That is what prompted me to select today’s Spark from Misty Copeland.

If you are unfamiliar with Misty Copeland, she is an American ballet dancer for American Ballet Theatre (ABT), one of the three leading classical ballet companies in the United States. In June, 2015, Copeland became the first African American woman to be promoted to principal dancer in ABT’s 75-year history.

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.”

The Adventures of Periwinkle & Stinky

Stinky & Periwinkle are delighted they will be here tomorrow with a new adventure. Stinky has remained tight-lipped about what he has planned for the two adorable tabbies. So, I can offer no hints on what you can expect. I just know it will be fun. Please don’t disappoint them by missing out on the adventure.
