Saturday Sparks Link Party 124

Welcome to Saturday Sparks 124!

The beginning of yet another party serves as a reminder that time stands still for no man.

Our Summer is flying by and there are occasions when I wish I had the power to press a hold button and pause time.

Since that is not an option, I will bask in these special moments that make up our lives.

 "What day is it?
It's today, squeaked Piglet.
My favorite day, said Pooh."
~ A. A. Milne
 Now, lets get this weeks party started.
