on the importance of play

Have you played today?

Have you had fun with a friend or family member lately?

Let these two remind you of the importance of play.

And in case you don’t know where to start…

Start with the basics: a ball, rolling over, or a simple game of chase.




i bet it’s amazing

Oh, there’s so much to learn from animals… 

My dog faithfully waits near the kitchen whenever I’m in there.  He’s patient, quiet, and respectful of the process.  He doesn’t always get a doggie treat or a taste of whatever I’m cooking, but he is hopeful each time.  And when he does get something, he is most grateful

He also probably can’t see much or doesn’t understand what’s going on step-by-step when I’m making a snack or meal, but that doesn’t matter much, does it? 🙂




unabated joy

Today’s inspirational & funny spark:

I hope that you get the chance to feel unabated joy this week!

According to a news article, “Eight-year-old Max the springer spaniel had to stand down from active duty after he became crippled with hip, back and leg problems… He had to take early retirement from the drug enforcement team with Avon and Somerset Police after seven years of dedicated service. But his former colleagues were determined to look after him and paid for a special ‘chariot’ to help him fight his disabilities. The all-terrain device consists of two wheels attached to a frame strapped across his back to provide balance and support.”

Amazing Butter

Today’s funny spark:

I went to a book store today and happened to see the following saying –

Well, butter my butt and call me a biscuit!

I laughed out loud. 🙂

I later searched for the meaning online and found out that the phrase can mean:

“That’s amazing!”

“I never thought of that.”

“No way!”

“Wow! Really?”

Isn’t language great?



Today’s funny spark:

Post-Halloween (or any time of the year really!):

Eat more chocolate… just in moderation, right?
