Nellie’s Spark

On Mondays, mes pawticipates in McGuffy Reader’s Monday Sparks. They say,

“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!”

Sparks Badge

Mes, Nellie Bellie  believes this too!

In all my years, one of the things that mes learned was to never dwell on what is wrong, or what mes thinks is wrong…

Lassie Lake

Like when Mommy and Daddy got losted at Lassie Lake. Wes used to goes camping in a tent at Lassie Lake. Hissy Old Licorice and mes used to stay in the tent when Mommy and Daddy went fishing with the Hairy Slobbery Sisters (Bob and Sam). One time, mes gotted bored and mes unzipped the flap and went for a walk. Mes must admit mes went for a furry long walk. When mes gotted back to the tent, the tent and Mommy and Daddy and the truck and the boat and the Hairy Slobbery Sisters were gone!

Mes had learned to focus on what to dos next. AND tos spend my energies on moving forward, towards finding answers.


Mommy and Daddy came back EVERY DAY to look for mes. But they came back at the wrong times. When they came, mes was off gallivanting! Finally, after 4 days Mommy and Daddy drived up and mes was waiting for them on the picnic table.

Mes chastised them most of the way home! Mes was furry hungry and mes ated all the stuff in the truck!

What does that story has to dos with my Spark? Mes a cat and mes knows that every day is a new day. Each day can be harder than the last, or it may be greatest day of your life. Sometimes it seems really hard…like being losted in the wilderness. Life is hard, but even if every single day you feel like you’re just barely making it, forward is forward, and yous will get through it!

Has the bestest Day EVER!!!

  11. Wow, Nellie ! What a story – and how great that neither you nor your folks gave up !
    (I take it Licorice was ok ?)


    1. HOL (Hissy Old Licorice) had been going camping since he was a kitten. HE did not has to goes on a leash as he ALWAYS stayed close to the camp. HE LOVED camping! HE did not even gets out of the sleeping bag when mes unzipped the tent. Mes was good when Mommy and Daddy was around. It was the first time mes had ever taken off in 8 years of camping.
      Mes knew that Mommy and Daddy would gets me!


  12. Nellie, our peeps woulda freaked out too if they came back and we were gone. Thank cod you were smart enough to come back and wait for them on the table.


  13. I can’t even imagine how upset your folks were when you wandered off. I am sure glad they found you. This is an excellent spark. XO


  14. Wonderful spark. It must have been very scary for the humans when they couldn’t find you. They had no business leaving without you. We can teach humans things.
    BTW, tell Marv he can participate in the 20 Facts any time he wants. It doesn’t have to be this week but if your mommy doesn’t have time, it’s ok too.


  15. This Spark is perfect. Moving forward… I so relate to this right now. That picture of you on the picnic table tugs at my heart. Nellie, I love the paragraph about what the story has to be with your Spark. Visiting you from Monday Sparks.


  16. Nellie, I remember when you told this story before. It must have been so scary out there all alone. Your Spark is very appropriate and your story shows that neither you, nor your Mommy and Daddy ever gave up on you all being together again.
