THANKFUL THURSDAY BLOG HOP
Here we are starting a brand new year. My Mom said she can remember going to see the movie “2001 A Space Oddessy” and thinking how silly things were projected to be in 2001. Here we are well beyond that and the world certainly has changed but is it better or worse or “we need to work on it” ?? LOL Anyway, I’m thankful to be starting a new year and having my first FULL year in my forever home. I’ll also turn TWO this March and that will be something to be thankful for. We don’t know what my history was prior to my adoption but something tells me THIS LIFE is better than what it could have been that’s for sure – so I AM THANKFUL We are also very thankful for all of you. We love having you stop by our blog for some fun. Just like we LOVE coming to Brian’s on Thursday to share “THANKFULS” ! If you’d like to join us in this blog hop full of thankful things, just click their badge above and join in the fun!
The new year started with my brother Angel Sammy’s birthday on January 1st…………yes he’s no longer here but we still celebrate his birthday in our hearts – he would have been 18. He’s still plugging away on his computer on Wednesdays though preparing to send me his poetic challenge by Wednesday night so I can share it with you on Thursdays. Are you ready? As you may remember, we aren’t doing an alphabetic poetic challenge – this year Angel Sammy is doing a PHOTOGRAPHIC poetic challenge. It’s turning out to be a lot of fun. Feel free to join in.
Here’s Angel Sammy’s email to me from last night:
Happy New Year Fellow Poets!
It was a celebration at the Rainbow Bridge for us on New Year’s Eve just as it was for all of you “back home”…………..we know you miss us as much as we miss you but we still are in contact with you and still watch over all of you with love until the day we see you again!
I gave you a totally interesting photo last week for you to use to write your poetic photo challenge for today………….AND a lot of you wrote to us to ask us for more information on the photo. We did some research and have a link for you to follow to find out the “back story” on this amazing stone wall. Here’s the photo challenge for this week’s poem along with the link:
It’s a lovely story about this wall and who built it and why…………………..just CLICK HERE to read it.
Now here is MY poem that I wrote for this most inspiring stone wall photograph and I hope you will share yours with all of us either by giving us your blog link to follow and read your poem OR just write your poem in our comments here – we’d LOVE to read what your thoughts about this photograph are!!
By Angel Sammy Kimmell, January 3, 2018
Walls are built for many reasons
They’re built to last for endless seasons
Each stone placed right next to his brother
A perfect spot to lean on each other
Then from the center a mighty tree grows
Adding its’ own strength to the stones in such neat little rows.
The wall is so strong with the tree as its’ “lock”
The tree is the center made of beautiful, solid rock.
A wall is like our faith, standing straight, hard and true
Let your faith be that strong and its’ strength will carry you.
I hope you’ve written a poem too and I also hope you will share it if you have………………I’d also encourage you to follow the link I gave you to the story of this wall photo. When we found the photo we had NO IDEA what its’ story was but we were glad that we were able to find out – it’s a lovely story indeed.
Now it’s time to give you your “photo poetry” inspiration for NEXT Thursday – ready? This is the photo you and I will write a poem about for NEXT week:
That’s about it for another Thursday my friends…………..I hope to see you here next Thursday and we’ll share some poetry and visit with each other. YES I’m staying busy at the Rainbow Bridge but I’m never too busy to spend Thursday with you……………….never – EVER!
Love, Angel Sammy
Thank you Sammy! I love that tree wall and the story behind it. And I LOVE YOU TOO!!!!! See you next week……………….
