Thankful and Poetic Thursday


Happy Thursday everybody.    Let’s get THANKFUL – we have some of the usual thankfuls this week like getting to go outside, finally getting some actual RAIN which we badly needed, a couple of cool days, and more good health news for my Dad.    One thing we never take for granted though is that we DO have things to be thankful for.   So many people claim they have NOTHING – but if they really thought about it, they would realize that sometimes just BEING HERE is something they should be thankful for!    If you would like to share your thankfuls – click on Brian’s badge above to join in the THANKFUL THURSDAY BLOG HOP.

The other thing we do on our Thursdays, is show you the email we get from Angel Sammy for Poetic Thursday.    He writes to all of us from the Rainbow Bridge to transmit his poem of the week and give us a photo to inspire us for the NEXT week.    Ready to read it?   Here it is………………..


Hello Poetic Friends!

Here we are in our usual spot in the blogosphere to share poetry we’ve written ourselves.   Aren’t you proud of that?  You should be.   So many people have never written a poem – ever.   It’s a great way to share feelings, thoughts, ideas – and most of all it’s fun when you use a photo of something as your “poetic inspiration”.    That’s what we do each week.    I give you a photo to think about and you write a poem based on the photo in some way.

I happen to know that my Mom and Dad are going to be taking a little break next week and won’t be returning until Thursday afternoon – BUT I’m still going to give you a photo prompt for next Thursday – when Mom gets home she will pop on the computer to see what you’ve written!     We will have a post that day too – I’ve already written a poem for next week myself based on the photo you will see later in this post.     WE ARE ON TOP OF THINGS ON EARTH AND AT THE BRIDGE…………………. Now, here’s the photo I gave you last week followed by my poem.   I just LOVE this photo.

“Don’t Be Scared!”

Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell      ©October 2, 2019

First day of nursery school and here we are

Dropped off by Mommy in Daddy’s car

I’m glad we have each other to hold on to

You’ll be here for me and I’ll be here for you!

I think that’s our teacher way over there

Try not to cry and try not to stare

Being away from home and our toys and stuff

Makes first day at school really, truly rough

But we’ll be just fine cuz we’ve got each other

After nap time we’ll go home with our mother!!

HAHA……this photo had SO MANY possibilities………in fact when I was writing this I had about five other ideas but I figured I’d just stick with this one!    If you wrote a poem, let us know you did and share your link in our comments.    Thanks to all of you who write poetry and play along with us.    We love reading your work and hope you enjoy mine.

Here’s your photo for NEXT week:

I like this one a lot………..Indian culture is so interesting and we love their outfits and traditions.    This one will be fun………………..hope to see your poem next week when we share!!    Meanwhile, have a happy week………………….

I am the Angel Poet in the green beret…..and I hope you join me for POETIC FUN each week!

Love from the Bridge, Angel Sammy



Thank you for visiting us Angel Sammy……………..

Love, Teddy

    • A friend would have been nice in your hour of need! These two little kids were lucky I guess – I went to kindergarten in Germany and only remember playing all day long – probably by myself because I was so super shy! You know screaming for two hours is a talent….:)

  1. I have read two poems and they have been about sticking together. I remember kindergarten and I was a very shy only (no sibs) with a couple of friends that were there too. My Mom sent me off in my white bucks with red soles. Lots of black and white saddle oxfords! I was fine the first day but didn’t want to go back the second day. I think the only thing that got me back there was the Hydrox cookies!
    We can’t get rid of the HOT weather here!

    • HAHAHA……I was terribly shy too and my brother was younger so not with me AND we lived in Germany at the time so I had only one or two other kids that even understood me! Gosh do I ever remember saddle oxfords but not until I was in grade school. On top of that I had to wear orthopedic shoes because I was slightly pigeon-toed! I’m sure those shoes did NO GOOD for that but it was “what you did” back then. Anyway, it was a very cute photo this week and sure did inspire some adorable poems. We had 96 for a high yesterday (broke all records) today is medium hot and tomorrow our HIGH will be 70!!!! YAY!

      Hugs, Pam

    • Such an adorable poem and I always love the way things turn out when you do the “initial letter poetry” form………… NAILED it! Thanks for being one of our poetry peeps – it’s so much fun on Thursdays seeing what people have come up with for the photos. Next week’s will be fun too.

      Hugs, Pam

    • She did a great job on her poem – it reminded my Mom (and probably a lot of others!) about her shy little self many (many) years ago. Thanks for joining in our fun with poetry…….it truly IS addictive!

      Hugs, Teddy

  3. Teddy, your thankfuls make me so happy. Continued purrs and prayers for your dad’s health, and for all of you! Angel Sammy, this poem is so sweet. I remember those days of starting school. It was exciting, but it was also so daunting. Purrs!
