Thankful Thursday Hop With Brian
Joining up with Brian’s Thankful Thursday hop – and you can too if you click on the badge above, use the LINKY tool and put your blog link in. We have a whole lot to be thankful for including all our wonderful friends………and it makes us remember not only are we lucky to have the friends we have NOW, but we were lucky to know some of the friends we have had who are no longer with us. Most notably, the last two friends of ours who are now gone – Angel Nellie and Angel Flynn. We miss both of them more than we are able to express.

Today we also celebrate Angel Sammy’s “Thoroughly Poetic Thursday” with a poem celebrating the letter “U”! If you have a poem to share, you can write it in our COMMENTS or you can give us your blog link where we can find your own fabulous poem for “U” !
By Angel Sammy Kimmell, May 4, 2017
Up and away the breeze will blow
Into the beyond where Angels go
Clouds awaiting up above
To carry the Angels in arms of love
Up is where we look to say our prayers
Our grief washes over us in darkest layers
But the light up above is bright and clear
Those who have gone are always near
Up and away one day we will fly
To join our sweet loved ones in the blink of an eye.
In honor of my friends……….(these are from Angel Sammy with Mom’s help)
Teddy here……………..my turn to say a little something. I’m the new kid on the block but in my short time here I’ve not only learned a LOT about my Angel brother Sammy, but about all of his friends who are now MY friends. Having both Flynn and Nellie leave so soon after I got to know and love them has been hard! They were both such special members of our “family” in this community of blogging and I’m a little young and inexperienced in these things but I feel this heavy sadness in my heart – like my Mom says she has in hers. We’ve tried to honor both Nellie and Flynn in our blog at their passing but words just don’t seem to come to express adequately how we feel. I think my Mom is still struggling with losing Sammy and I know I have BIG PAWS to fill in regard to that believe me!
Anyway, we just want to say that we love all of you – and we love all of those who have gone before – and we know that they are with us every minute of every day but the heartache is sort of always there……..I’m learning fast how to love AND how to let go – it’s a lot for a little guy you know???
