Hello Thursday and Hello Friends! Today is the day Brian hosts his Blog Hop devoted to talking about how Thankful we are for things in our lives……….it’s a good exercise to focus on the GOOD things we all have going on – and anything else we may be thankful for. If you click his badge above it takes you there and you can link up if you would like to join.
I’m very thankful that all the racket of an entire day’s worth of sawing down/chopping up/grinding up/chipping up five way overgrown huge leyland cypress trees on our side yard is OVER. Done. It was horrible. I hid in the basement for almost 9 hours. The noise was amazing. I’m sure the neighbors thought so too! BUT – bottom line is the trees are gone – just stumps left. Now there’s nothing between us and the neighbors who are closest to our house on one side but DIRT. Mom and Dad are going to get some holly trees and rhododendrons planted soon but for now – mud is the name of the game. Thankful the noise is gone? YOU BETCHA! I’m also thankful that in spite of the endless rain, we sure do have a pretty yard with everything BIG and GREEN. There have been times in the past when we had to water everything over and over and over and at least so far none of that is going on – our hose is resting comfortably in a nice coil by the faucet.
Now it’s time for Angel Sammy’s poetry post!
Happy Poetry Day!
Hi friends. Everything is wonderful at the Rainbow Bridge and I can see – as can all of us up here – that things are not so fine down where you are. Violence and sadness although there are some GOOD things happening as well – it’s just that the sadness sometimes overwhelms even the Angels.
Let’s talk about poetry. I hope you have written one for the photo I gave you last week! It was an adorable photo……….I hope my poem is as adorable as the photo is!!
“Practice Makes Perfect”
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©May 25, 2022
Careful little lady now don’t you fall
Don’t be in a hurry to get “high heel tall”
One day you’ll be big enough for those shoes
A closet full I bet – red, yellow, pink and blue!
You’re a real little charmer in those ruffled pants
Trust me though those shoes were not made for dance!
Just love this photo and I can’t wait to read all the poems people write for this cute little lady in her jazzy high heels borrowed from Mommy! I had so many ideas during this last week but when I saw down to write, this just popped in my head – that’s the way it is often with poetry. If you wrote a poem, please let us know in comments – we’d love to check it out so give us your link please!
Now for next week’s challenging photo………..at least we hope it’s a challenge AND fun for everyone too:
Nothing better than cooling off in the heat of the summer! I love this photo…………..will be fun for poetry I think. I have some ideas already and I hope you do too – you have a week to write your poem and show it off HERE next Thursday………………………
Hope to see you here……………………….
Love and Light…..Angel Sammy
That was a great little poem for that baby in high heels Angel Sammy. I think she’s in too big a hurry to grow up. We are little for such a short time and a “big cat” for a lot longer. Enjoy being little while you can I say. See you next week my dear brother. I love you.
