Time for the THANKFUL THURSDAY Hop, hosted by my friend Brian. We get together via the Hop on Thursdays and talk about how thankful we are for WHATEVER – if you think about it, I know that we ALL have things we’re thankful for. If you’d like to join in the Hop – click Brian’s badge above and join in.
I don’t have a specific thing to be thankful for this week but I do believe in expressing my thankfulness every single day. Mom and I have quiet time in the morning together before Dad gets up and one of the things we always do is say a little prayer of thanks for BEING HERE and having a quiet and peaceful life in a comfy home with friends and family. It’s easy to take things like that for granted. We hope we NEVER EVER do that.
I’m also thankful that my Angel brother Sammy got through with his wi-fi connection to transmit his Thursday poem to us! A Thursday without poetry from him AND without reading everyone else’s photo challenge poetry just wouldn’t be as fun!
Here’s what I got from Sammy overnight……….
Hello everyone………it’s Thursday again and time to share some poetry. I hope you decided to participate this week whether you’ve written a poem before or not. It’s a fun thing to do and I try to make it a challenge by giving you a photo every week to use as “inspiration” for your poetry! So far everyone who is writing a poem is doing an amazing job. We have some REAL poets out there in blog land and happily some of them are our blog followers.
So, in case you need to see last week’s photo that I gave you to write a poem from, here it is again, followed by my poem.

Buddies and pals can be quite fun
Having two or three can be more fun than ONE
Someone to play with, or sleep with or cuddle
It’s hard to play football when you’re alone in the huddle!
If something goes wrong, your pal can be there
They can give reassurance, or comb out your hair!
Or clean out your ears, or lick food off your face
Pals don’t want their friends to look like a disgrace!
But some animals are fine being the one and only
If you’ve always been “just one” then you can’t feel lonely
If our humans play with us and talk to us and stuff
Being on our own in the household is not really tough!
We get all the attention, all the treats, all the toys
We can be just as happy, and just as full of real joy
But if one day my humans decide to get me a pet
You’d better believe it’s a CAT they would get !
My Dad was always a dog guy before he met my Mom…………Mom quickly converted him to a cat guy………..and I have to say, both Teddy and I are happy that happened !!
SO, I bet you’re anxious to see the photo that I have for you for NEXT week – but I have to say first that I’m hoping you wrote a poem for TODAY with the kitty photo. Did you? If so, tell us in comments and give us your blog link so we can READ it OR if you want, write your poem in our comments to share.
Here’s your challenge photo for NEXT Thursday!
This will be a fun one don’t you think????? We’ll share what we all come up with next Thursday. Until then, I will remind you that I am THANKFUL you are our friends. I’m also THANKFUL if you take up the challenge to express your creativity with a poem – I can promise you it’s not as hard as you might think it is.
Until next week, I’m sending you all Heavenly Hugs from the Rainbow Bridge…………….
Hugs, Angel Sammy
Well I can’t top that – so I will just say – see you next Thursday for Thankful and Poetic Thursday!
