Hello my friends! Time to write a poem honoring the letter “X” and I decided that I can CHEAT because it’s MY blog and if I want to I can – right?
X Marks The Spot
By Sammy Kimmell, 11/24/16
Sometimes it can be a handful
So many things to be thankful for
But “X” marks the spot and it’s a bullseye score.
The “X” is on my heart where my love is stored
I absolutely couldn’t possibly love you all more.
I’m feeling my age and I wish there was more time
My “slot machine of life” needs just one more dime!
But before I must go, I’ll most thankfully say
I’m especially thankful on Thanksgiving Day –
My life has been grand, by life has been good
I’m glad you’ve all been part of my “blog neighborhood”.
Enjoy your blessings and count them out loud
I’ll promise to visit you one day on a cloud.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING MY FRIENDS……..
From Sammy With Love
I feel that I must say a little something to everyone about Sammy although it’s not easy to do……..because of course our beloved pets MUST live forever right? They must – they are such a huge part of our lives and hearts. Well Sammy is just tired and his body is failing him and there is little that can be done. I have NOT wanted to talk about it – because it’s difficult – very difficult. He spent a day and a half in the hospital having constant IV drip with a variety of treatments all designed to do what we hope is NOT impossible – give him just a little more time…………Sammy has loved Christmas since he was tiny. He loves lying under the tree and watching my husband’s train go round and round…….he loves present boxes…….he loves just being WITH us when we unwrap our presents and when he gets to look in his stocking to see what Santa Paws has brought. SO our wonderful vet is trying to give Sammy a “rally” – – – a boost so that he will be able to enjoy one last Christmas with us. We are NOT doing any “heroics” for him……I honestly feel he wouldn’t want us to. He’s had a wonderful and long happy life and he deserves to have a good long rest. He will always be in my heart and I think in many of your hearts too………..I’ve LOVED sharing him with you and right now, it’s my intention to continue – after all, Angels DO blog you know!
Don’t be sad…………..just sent us all your purrs and prayers and ENERGY so Sam will hang in there – I’ll keep you posted on the blog…………no long drawn out medical reports but just to let you know how the “rally” is working.
We are hooking up to Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop! We’re THANKFUL for you too Brian!!!
Thanks thanks to the Kitties Blue at The Cat On My Head for this lovely badge…….it touches my heart.
