What a busy day today is in the blogosphere – we have our usual Thankful Thursday, our usual Poetic Thursday AND today is also REMEMBER ME Thursday. We’ll try to cover everything!
We’re always happy when Brian’s Thankful Thursday Hop is on our agenda because it is VERY important to be thankful for things we have in our lives. We are very blessed so we want to voice our happiness about that every week. If you’d like to join the Hop – just click the badge above and link up. We’re thankful for the stretch of incredible weather we’ve had because it’s allowed ME to go outside more than usual and Mom and Dad have indulged me and let me even fall asleep under my favorite Dwarf Maple Tree and have a nap (under their supervision of course). I’m also thankful that the mornings are in the 50s – it’s a great thing to have a frosty morning again. I’m thankful that I have my vet visit over with and got the shot I needed in order to stay at the Paws A While Pet Hotel while Mom and Dad are on vacation next month too. Done!
For poetry – we always look forward to Angel Sammy’s poem that he sends and that I share with you so let’s do that next THEN we’ll get to REMEMBER ME THURSDAY.
Hi Poetry Fans – it’s OUR day!
Thursday means poetry – and I do hope that you used the photo I gave you last Thursday as the “springboard” for a fabulous and fun poem to share with us today here on the Poetry Podium!
Below is the photo I gave you to use followed by my poem for the photo. If you wrote a poem this week – let us know in comments (or give us your link) because we would LOVE LOVE LOVE to read your work.
The Mountain and the Mole Hill
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©September 21, 2022
Hey little guy you’ll not move me
I’m the great big dog and you’re a little flea!
I am somewhat of an immovable object
Pushing me down will be a HUGE project!
I admire your determination and standing your ground
But you need to put on about three hundred pounds!
I absolutely love that photo – when I saw it I knew it would be FUN to work with…………………and it was – I’m sure you thought so too and I hope you wrote a poem for the photo. I have another gem for you for NEXT Thursday!
Cute photo right? Do you remember seeing a dinosaur for the first time? Hard to believe there were creatures so huge when you’re a little kid. This little one isn’t too sure about touching those teeth!
So we’ll get together again next Thursday – you have a week to write a poem………..YOU CAN DO THIS!
See you soon – until then be kind, be safe and be happy!
Love, Angel Sammy
And now let’s talk about the other special occasion today – REMEMBER ME THURSDAY.
Now going into its tenth year, Remember Me Thursday® aims to unite individuals and pet adoption organizations around the world to be an unstoppable, integrated voice for orphan pets in need of forever homes.
“Over a million beautiful, adoptable pets will lose their lives in 2022,” states Mike Arms, President and CEO of Helen Woodward Animal Center. “We all come from different countries, cultures, and backgrounds, but together, we can raise our voices and share one life-saving message and literally save millions of pets on this one day.”
Want to find out ways you can honor this most special day in the lives of so many people AND adoptable pets? Visit this website (CLICK HERE) – light a candle while you’re there – and remember there are so many lives that can be saved by sharing a little love.
My Angel brother Sammy and I were adopted from a shelter here in our County and had we not been adopted – even though it was a no kill shelter – it’s very hard to say what our lives would have been without the love and willingness to help that we received from our Mom and Dad.

Please be part of the solution of so many orphaned pets – open your heart – your life and THEIRS will never be the same!
