Annie of McGuffy's Reader is hosting Sparks, an inspirational and positive thought for the week link-up, every Monday.

"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, we can all be part of this affirmative change." ~ McGuffy Ann Morris
Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Melody Beattie

  1. Sandee,

    WOW, isn't this the truth! Gratitude definitely makes the life/heart fuller and places one's perspective on track. Excellent "Sparks" and what an adorable "Aww Monday" pix. Have a blessed week, dear friend!

  10. Annie of McGuffy's Reader is totally correct and it occurred after the American election. My cousin is an American and he's frustrated with what is going on with the results what is going on in his country. I worry also because it can affect my country Canada. I see the problems all sit in the White House because there is no respect to anyone. I pray that eventually life will come back to show respect with one another. See ya.

    1. No it's been occurring for a very long time. Trump isn't the problem, Paul. You and I will disagree on this. He's upsetting the apple cart and it so needed being upset. I will say it again, I voted for Donald J. Trump. I couldn't and wouldn't vote for Hillary. I've told you this before.

      Yes the kitties are cute. :)
