Today is Sparks Monday with Annie ofMcGuffy’s Reader.She thought a positive thought to start the week will bring positive results and I agree.
I got to thinking about my family and the positive feelings I get from them. They do a lot for me.
When I get sad, mom is there with some kinda treat to cheer me up. She reads to me and gives me cuddles when I’m having a tough time. Shoko calls me”Fuzz Face” or some such name to let me know I’m special to her. She’s not a mushy girl so one must read between the lines. Dad, well he’s extra special in hisway. He’s learning how to talk with us and we love him for it. He’s kinda unsure but is relaxing and we talk back to him. He spent many years working away from home so we didn’t know him that well. Well, he’s a terrific guy. We know if we go to him he will help us with whatever problem we have. That’s my family, real and always there for support.
I try to always remember no matter how bad things get, my family is always there for me.
ATTENTION: Elaine Faber, that fabulous writer of The Black Cat Series and Mrs. Odboddy series has a free copy of Mrs. Odboddy, The Hometown Patriot, available on Kindle. Check http://tinyurl.com/hdbvzsv to see if it’s still free. I love to get something for free, how bout you? We loved this book, You’ll laugh at her persnickety ways. You’ll be hooked on her mysteries. Mrs. Odboddy could be a Crotchety Cougar for sure!
Annie of McGuffy’s Reader started Sparks to provide us with a positive start to the week. While we are looking for positive thoughts for the post, we run across hundreds of positive sayings to choose from. So join us and enter a Spark on your blog so you will be filled with positive ideas.
McGuffy’s Reader has a blog hop called Sparks every Monday. Quotes of positive thoughts and ideas for us to start our week with.
Mom’s quote for this week is:
Though an awesome thought, it is so hard for mom to do this. She struggles with it almost every day. If only her hands were able to lift objects…if only… She must adapt to life as it is now….not in the past. This is very difficult to accept but she knows she must forget the past and carve out a new way of doing things she once took for granted. When she finally accepts and quits battling with herself she will be happy. She knows this but change is very difficult. So she’ll keep trying until she accomplishes her goal.
Do you have a problem accepting things you cannot change?
McGuffy’s Reader Blog is doing their Sparks post of uplifting quotes. This is an excellent idea. These quotes are ever so true and provide us with inspiration throughout the week.
I have long been a believer of the good feelings that we receive from helping others. The understanding, patience, and guidance we give to folk comes back twofold. For once these gifts are given away, we see situations not as too big to handle but as a stepping stone to understanding others and ourselves.A helping paw makes the day a wee bit brighter.
Have a marvelous Monday.
