After Cooper Murphy bit my hand on Saturday, I started thinking about unconditional love. I knew he didn’t do it to hurt me. He just wanted to get my attention and let me know he didn’t want me to stop brushing and giving him scritches. It’s not the first time he’s bitten me, and I never get mad at him. I love him unconditionally, which is what prompted today’s Spark.


unconditional love


Growing up, my sister and I did not receive unconditional love from our parents. They always had expectations they expected us to meet. I was always a little better at this than my sister, as she was seven years older, and I learned a lot from her mistakes. And we were exceptionally fortunate our paternal grandparents did give us that unconditional love.

The Bite

As I said, it’s not the first time Cooper has bitten me. I’ve always expected it’s what got him abandoned in the snow by his previous family. This is the first time, however, I needed antibiotics for one of his bites. I suspect I reacted so badly, as this is the exact spot where Sawyer gifted me with a bite when I grabbed him to bring him home.

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.”
