With this being President’s Day, I wanted my Spark to be a quote from a past president. After searching through the “famous” quotes of many past presidents, I decided on this one from FDR. I thought those of you who read this blog could relate to it.


sparks - happiness


For cats, like Cooper Murphy and Lisbeth, scoring a box to sit in or on equals both achievement and happiness, so they volunteered to deliver today’s Spark to you.

I am going to try and remind myself of this Spark on days when I absolutely do not feel like writing anything or posting.

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. Kitties Blue and I ask for your continued prayers for Annie and her family as they try to reconcile this mess and get their lives back to normal.

Many of us still continue to post a Spark on Monday, as we believe in Annie’s vision: “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!”

Awww Mondays

I remember reading something that’s stuck with me for years. Writer’s block is when your imaginary friend stops talking to you. For me, that’s very true. Creativity right out the window!

F.D.R. was an interesting man; flawed, as are we all, but smart and determined. My father also had polio.
