Monday Sparks New Year's Day


Today we're joining the new blog hop called Sparks that was started by McGuffy's Reader.
Here are the details from their blog:

Welcome to Sparks. Many years ago, it was my intent to post an inspirational thought each Monday. It would be my weekly meditation, and perhaps feed other people's spirit as well. Life got busy, and this fell by the wayside. Now, I feel a strong need to bring this feature back. 

The negative energy in the world has become thick and oppressive. Social media has become a part of this dark, negative storm. There is an obvious universal need for more positive energy and peace. And, we can all be part of this affirmative change. 

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!

I hope you will join us. Please link up a positive quote, thought, poem, or verse. The badge and code can be found in my sidebar. Add the badge to your post to invite others. The more, the merrier. I welcome your thoughts. Peace.

Here's our SPARKS quote for today.


Happy New Year to all of our pals.  As you know, 2017 was a horrible year for us.  Losing our sweet Ellie, our Dad's long hospital stay and then losing him in September. Our hearts are hurting and smashed into bazillion pieces.  We are purring and praying for a good 2018 for us and for all of you!

Your Spark should be the list of resolutions for all of us. We know 2017 sucked, and we have to believe that 2018 will be better; though, we know it will take a while for your days not to be filled with grief. Sending all our love and prayers for 2018. Mau sends Allie all his love and a kiss for every single one of her floofy furs and extra for her sweet nose.
