About Sparky Laurie:

A very special hello from my heart to yours.You want to know more about me?

Well, let’s see… I’m a dedicated home maker and full time mother who is learning to celebrate my ODDITUDE! …….a new one huh? …well ODDITUDE acc to John Powers means to embrace the UNIQUENESS IN US…THE PASSION FOR FINDING OUT WHO WE REALLY ARE! Though a people-person,definitely not a people-pleaser ….I truly believe that there is ONLY ONE of each of us and WE should try and be all that we can ,while we can and thus try and make the world a better place with what we have. Like RW Emerson said :”It’s easy in the world to live after the world’s opinion,it’s easy in solitude to live after our own;but the great man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect stillness the independence of solitude.”

I love writing,surfing the Net,collecting quotes,reading, trying out new recipes ,listening to music …(the kind that is good for the soul ) and also love watching inspirational movies.Simplicity is my style and yet you could say I am interestingly enough complex. Sparky (now you know where the  name came from) and enthusiastic, highly creative and always looking for NEW lessons to learn from the everyday events in life.Articulate and candid …a real dreamer and one who truly lives the quote :

“If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.” -HENRY DAVID THOREAU

Have a great day and always remember , TRUTH IS OUT THERE….only LOOK FOR IT! 🙂

Take care, God bless,

Sparky Laurie

    Hi Laurie, My name is Wayne. I wanted to come by and say thank you for visiting me and suscribing to my blog. I’m humbled and a little surprised that anyone reads me. Your blog is very creative and appealing, and I love the content. It’s a little ODDITUDE but in a very good way. I love nugget 33. So glad you came by otherwise I might never have discovered you. 🙂

      Hi Wayne…I came across your link ystday on Michaels blogroll.I love your collection of writings.Thank you for the wonderful words about my blog and glad that you enjoyed my latest nugget. I believe that we are all very special to God and that is why He has given each of us a unique thumbprint. Just like you mentioned, ultimately only He knows us inside out and its His approval that really matters.It does feel good though when we find other special people along the way of life to celebrate odditude(both ours and theirs) with us. Keep up the good work and do stay in touch! 😉

    Loved your latest nugget! Plus the writer James Joyce was nearly blind by the time he completed his last writings.

    And I wanted to thank you. I’m thanking all of you whose feedback I respect for a new milestone. For October 8th I hit a new Single- Day high for hits at 12,577. This replaces my previous Single- Day high of 2,336 on a day in early January of this year.

    So thank you for reading and for offering feedback that helps me attract readers.

    I love this blog too =)
    The second paragraph sounds like something I would write about myself. Specially the collecting quotes, listening to music and writing bit.
    It’s not just the blog layouts that match =)!
