It’s New Year’s Eve……a great time to look back and think about all the things we have to be thankful for after this most difficult year we are saying goodbye to. If you would like to join in this perfect HOP hosted by Brian, just click the badge above and link up. I think it will be a BIG DAY for posts on the Hop.
As I look back I really am so thankful that my Mom and Dad did just exactly what the doctors and experts recommended – STAY HOME…..WEAR MASKS……WASH HANDS……BE CAREFUL. They never were big on flitting from store to store to shop, going out to eat often, going to parties where there were lots of people so really doing all the things that had been recommended for humans to do was easy for them. They have missed their friends and missed occasionally going to their favorite restaurants but take-out has been available (even though they’ve rarely done that) and Mom loves cooking anyway. They wear their masks and fortunately in this small town of ours almost everyone HAS done that consistently. There are a few who just don’t think it’s necessary and that’s unfortunate and hasn’t done society any good that’s for sure. People HAVE traveled out of town – across states – spend time in groups of people but that’s not my Mom and Dad. They LOVE to travel but this past year just wasn’t the time to do it. So what I’m saying is we in my house have a lot to be thankful for but doing the right things made it easier to stay safe. My job has been to keep them happy and even if I do say so myself – I’ve done that quite well! I get more play time, more walks outside, more hugs…….and dare I say it – more treats!
We did get an email from Angel Sammy with his poem for this week. You may remember the photo he gave us last week had a New Year’s Eve celebration theme. Let’s see what kind of poem he wrote – and if you wrote one for the photo – let us know – we want to read it!!!!
Happy New Year’s Eve Friends!
Time to save goodbye to 2020 and get ready to give a BIG HUG to 2021. Hopefully all of you are healthy and happy and ready to have a BETTER year. We Angels at the Bridge want that for all of you more than we can say!
Last week’s photo for this week was definitely one that made people smile……………a man and a woman enjoying a New Year’s Eve celebration – maybe it was just the two of them or maybe they were captured on film at a party. I don’t think there will be a lot of huge parties this NY Eve but then who knows. There are a lot of people who think they know better than the experts and they will gather together tonight and maybe spread the virus. It’s tough to imagine it being any worse than it is but it can be.
Let’s get on with poetry shall we? Here’s the photo from last week and my poem to go with it.
“Stroke of Midnight”
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©December 30, 2020
C’mon baby give us a hug
Then we’ll dance and cut a rug!
Time to let loose and celebrate
You’re mighty cute but where’s my date??
Short and sweet…………….HAHAHA……………I have a feeling the poem will remind just about everyone of at least one New Year’s Eve party they’ve been to. My Mom says most of the New Year’s Eve parties she went to were before she was married to my Dad. She’s never been a night owl so rarely made it to midnight anyway. Party animal? Not my Mom. My Dad may have been more of a party animal than my Mom but even so, these days they’ve finished their champagne toast and gone to sleep by 9PM. Priorities change when you get older (so they say).
Now how about you? Did you write a poem for the photo? If if so, let us know in comments – give us a link to where we can read your masterpiece! Make a New Year’s Resolution to begin writing a poem once a week with us if you don’t already do that……….it’s SO MUCH FUN. Honest!
Here’s a photo for you to use as inspiration for NEXT week’s poetry sharing event…………………..
Sweet? Yep – nothing like a “man and his dog” sort of photo right? Well as they say SIZE DOESN’T MATTER…………….these two are probably destined to be best buddies for life. Let’s see what you do with this one in the way of a poem to share.
So there’s nothing left to do but wish all of you the VERY BEST of New Years…………………let’s hope 2021 is a whole lot better than 2020 was………………………….
Happy New Year………….Love, Angel Sammy
Thanks for watching out for me and Mom and Dad in 2020 Angel Sammy…………….I know you’ll be keeping an eye on us in the new year too!
See you next year!
