Hi everyone! Now that the holidays are over and I am trapped in the house due to the cold weather, I have had time to read. We are joining The Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading? , McGuffy’s Reader’s Sparks and Comedy Plus’ Awww…Mondays.
My Spark is a quote from the author of the book I am recommending. Not sure how I have never heard of Joy Mangano, but until I read her book, I had no idea who she was. I like memoirs and reading how people become successful so I got Inventing Joy by Joy Mangano from the library. If you are not familiar with her, she has invented many products and her first was the wonder mop.
Actually, she started inventing things when she was a kid, but didn’t follow through until she was a single mom with three kids. She now has a huge empire and is a permanent feature on HSN. Her story was very interesting and a reminder that no one is an overnight success, years of hard work go into any successful endeavor.
There is a movie about her too with Jennifer Lawrence playing Joy. I haven’t seen it yet, but I ordered it up from the library and hope to pick it up tomorrow. If you are looking for some motivation this year, I highly recommend her book. It is part memoir and part self-help, with several pages of quotes at the end.
My spark for today is on of Joy’s quotes, ” No matter who you are or where you’re from, you have the power to change the world. ”

If you donated to our friend Toby’s dental, we want to thank you for your generosity. And I want to let you know I am mailing all the packages out today( except for one I am waiting for an address on) of the mats and toys. Sorry for the delay, but it took me a while to make everything and then the weather turned bitterly cold. Also thanks to all who shared and are praying it goes well.
One more thing, please purr and pray for McGuffy’s Reader’s Kenzie, The Cat on My Head’s Cooper Murphy ,Timmy Tomcat’s Mr. Buttons and FurEverywhere’s Milita as they are all not feeling well at this time.
