Sparks - smile


The author of today’s Spark, Ileana D’Cruz, is a 31-year-old Indian film actress.

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!”


Last month for Allie and Mau’s third anniversary, we conducted a comment-a-thon. Everyone who left a comment on the anniversary post had the opportunity to win a donation to the shelter/rescue of their choice. The winner was selected using The winner was The J-Cats. They live in Israel and selected Let the Animals Live, Israel. You can read more about the group on their Facebook page.

A donation as made to Let the Animals Live, Israel, via PayPal in the amount of $55. This amounts to ₪184.58 ILS (currency of Israel).

We do need to love ourselves because it helps us share that feeling of love inside with those outside when we really “know” love. We love the SPARK and we also love those sunglasses!

Hugs, Teddy and Mom too
