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

“Dogs are our link to paradise. They don’t know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring–it was peace.” Milan Kundera

    I will share this with Stella and Kenzie as I hang out with them. I am so very happy to have them. Both are Sheltie rescues. Stella is almost 8; we got her in 2013. Kenzie is almost 11; we got her in 2016. We were dog-less for 11 months 2012-2013. I cried every day. I have at least one dog from age 10 until we lost Polly in 2012. Stella was meant to be our dog. She is awesome. Kenzie needed us and is finally a happy dog, too. Big hugs, dear friend.

    So beautiful and I look forward to the day that our puppy dog can sit in peace on a hillside – she's still a little bit hyper. I'm sitting peacefully with Princess Cookie Cat who is an expert at meditation.
    Have a good week.:)

    I haven't looked at such a simple thing as this to make such a connection yet reading the words ring true. Wouldn't it be nice if all could live in Eden for a moment with a fur-pal? Have a sparkletastic week and thanks for dropping by, my friend! PS: It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas here! 🙂
