Thankful Thursday and Thoroughly Poetic Too!

POETRYSAMBADGE

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”

X Marks The Spot

By Sammy Kimmell, 11/24/16

Thanksgiving….being thankful

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.

I think they probably have Wi-Fi there right? I don’t want anyone to be sad as I’ve had a wonderful and long life. I am going to do my best to be here for Christmas and beyond. I really will. Mom will keep everyone posted.

    I can’t even tell you how much I love you as a family. I have followed Sammy with my heart since I met him. After having gone through a very similar experience with Admiral and assessing her lack of quality of life, I know how wrenching it is to stop the heroics.
    God bless you three. Sammy, I with everyone else, am right here beside you.

  14. Sammy you know I read your blog everyday but I am terrible at commenting, I don’t do it often enough. Our Momma has been going through some difficult times and it’s all she can do sometimes to hold it together and that means she just can’t help us do much blogging or write blithely happy words. She has changed a lot about our blog in that she hardly ever says much, just posts our photos from the past mainly because she lost her desire for photography, but i digress. Not trying to lay out our problems. We are praying and purring and we will keep you in our thoughts and we hope that you will indeed rally and enjoy this one extra special Christmas. It will be the best gift anyone could get Sammy. BIG HUGS and whiskerkisses.

It was both beautiful and heartbreaking at the same time because sometimes when you know the inevitable is coming, it gives you a different perspective and you truly do appreciate every single second you are given and make the most out of each and every one of them. Purrs of love to your precious boy.

He was savannahs first real blog pal and her mentor. We just started making a tent again and Nana went right in. She is loving it and Sammy taught her that as well as how much fun tissue paper is. I feel like I have touched him, pet him and love him.

We do have a lot of wonderful memories though of our blogging time……and it would be amazing if he could be here for his 17th birthday but we’re taking things one day at a time.

  32. That is a wonderful and heartfelt poem, Sammy, and one that brings tears to my eyes.
    Sammy, please do what you can to be with your family this Christmas, but if you can’t, know that we all loves you very, very much, and we will be with you Wherever and Forever.
    You and your family are in our hearts and prayers, and when the Rainbow Bridge calls, and you take that path as we all must, but I shall raise a glass to you now my friend and salute a life well lived, with good family and friends…. till we meet…. Purrs, Erin
