Today is of course Thanksgiving here and in many other places and we think it’s the PERFECT arrangement because Thanksgiving focused our attention on our “thankfuls” and Brian’s Thankful Thursday is right there to remind us to share! First we thank Brian for HAVING Thankful Thursday – and if you want to join in this Hop – click the blue graphic and join in the Hop to share your “thankfuls” !! We in my house are thankful for many things……..I’m certainly thankful I got adopted into this happy home, and my Mom and Dad say they are thankful they found me at the shelter too. I know that Angel Sammy had something to do with that (!) so I am most thankful to him for that. I’m thankful for our many friends online and offline as well – we are so blessed to have so many.
We mean that too!!!!
As we wind down the month of November, we are getting closer to the one year anniversary since Angel Sammy got his wings and took off in his beautiful balloon to visit all of his friends one last time on December 2nd………it was the saddest day ever for my Mom and Dad but thankfully he remains in touch with us – we feel him in our hearts all the time. He didn’t let me down this week either because in spite of his busy Angel duties, he transmitted his POETRY to us yet again via his wi-fi cloud connection at the Bridge!
Happy Thanksgiving from the Bridge!
Oh I would never let you or my little brother Teddy down that’s for sure – so I did write a poem for today……….you may remember that we are up to the letter “X” in the alphabet challenge and last week I told you because “X” is a toughie to come up with a word for, you could write about ANYTHING you wanted to this Thursday. I’m sure I’m not the only one who will do a poem about Thanksgiving right? I hope you wrote a poem to share with us – you can put your blog link in our comments here OR put your poem in our COMMENTS if you want to. Please give writing a poem a try – I promise you will enjoy doing it and enjoy sharing it too!

Today is the day that some of us sing
“Thank You God” for so many things
Thanks for teaching us love although some lose their way
Thanks for allowing us to talk with you when we pray
Thanks for our homes, our friends, and our health
For these things are riches beyond monetary wealth.
Thanks for blue skies, green grass, and abundant love
We would wish that for everyone on the wings of a dove
A dove is a symbol of peace we all know
We hope we may feel peace in our hearts as it glows
We are thankful for each moment, each hour, and each day
And so very thankful that you will show us THE WAY…………………
I hope you will take time today to be THANKFUL……………..I am so thankful that you all visit our blog every day and play along with us as we have fun here every day of the week. We are coming down to the wire on our ALPHABET CHALLENGE with poetry and next week we have one of the TWO last letters of the alphabet to celebrate – the letter “Y”! Just in case you need a little help thinking of something to write your poem about, here are some suggested words – BUT remember you can write a poem about ANYTHING that starts with the letter “Y” ! Ready?
(1) Yesterday (2) Yummy (3) Yellow (4) Year
I wish each and everyone of you who is celebrating Thanksgiving today lots of love, good food, good cheer and friendship……………………we are blessed! I want to leave you with a BIG SMILE – this one is courtesy of my hero, Garfield!!!
Well Angel Sammy I couldn’t have said it better myself (the poem OR the Garfield graphic….haha). We will see everyone next week for “Y” day…………..and we will also be announcing what the NEW Poetry Challenge will be once we reach “Z” ! Hopefully you will like our idea…………………in the meantime – give someone a HUG today – you will be glad you did and they will be THANKFUL for it!
