Sparks Monday May 7 2018


To quote Annie of McGuffy’sReader, the bright spirited blog where she created Sparks Mondays, “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!”

A fellow writer and FB acquaintance shared an excellent quote by Dolly Parton a while back. I immediately searched and found this on Brainy Quotes to save for today:


Which do you prefer, a straight path or the road less traveled?

  1. I love Dolly! I love the one that she said, " It cost a lot to look this cheap"!!! She is so adorable! And such a giving person. I have a friend that lives up the street, she lost her daughter several yrs ago to Cystic Fibrosis, the daughters grandmother worked for Dolly here in Nashville. Not having the insurance to bury her, Dolly covered it all. Amazing woman.

  2. I love this quote. I've paved a few roads in my day. I'm sure you have too. I get that vibe from you.

    Have a fabulous day and week filled with wonderful Sparks. ♥

  3. There's something to be said for both roads, straight and less traveled. I've had some very rocky paths in my life, so sometimes a nice paved, straight way is a relief. Let things that "happen to other people" stay happening to other people, not be the "other people" sort of thing. Safe, flat roads. The easy route. But, in real life I'd rather be wandering a back trail in the woods than stand in a line to see the tourist attraction! You've given me a lot to think about here! I don't really like to "go with the flow."

  6. I always seem to end up on the road less traveled, although I kind of wish I was a bit more mainstream...

  8. I like the path I'm on mostly, but I need to take some side trails.

  9. I'm good going with the flow but also doing what I want. And if something gets in my way or I find myself not happy with something forging another path.

    I did like one little quip that's stuck with me. Along the lines of if you aren't happy with your life/situation then move. You aren't a tree. lol
