Awww it's Monday and the Beginning of a New Year! January 1, 2018

2018 Photo Project
Photo #1
Lucy staring intently at tiny bug on the wall.
If you look closely you can see the teeny black dot
right below the window frame.
And this is for McGuffy's Sparks :
Words are a reflection of our thoughts. Positive words come from positive thoughts, negative words from negative thoughts. It is really that simple. Watch the words that come out of your mouth and you will have a good idea of the direction your thoughts are facing, and as a result, your life.


  1. Lucy has a dramatic back side. Happy 2018 from all of us

  2. Aww, what better way to start off the year than looking at Miss Lucy. I do see the bug. So cute.

    Love the Spark. It's spot on.
