Let’s Fill In!!!!
This is the super fun blog hop that both 15andmeowing and McGuffy’s Reader host every Friday………….they post four sentences with “holes” in them and we fill up the holes with our fabulous additions. If you want to join in the fun – click on McGuffy’s Reader’s link and enter your blog address and HOP AWAY!
My Mom is filling in this week (her answers are in GREEN)………………..aren’t I nice to let her have it all to herself some weeks? This is her lucky week…….besides, these questions are better answered by a HUMAN than a cat I think!
1. My favorite Christmas Song(s) is/are “Silent Night” “We Three Kings” I’ll Be Home For Christmas” “White Christmas”, and just about every other song you can think of for Christmas!!, but I could do without hearing “Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer”ever again.
2.My most meaningful Christmas ornament/decoration is the golden “Sammy Star” gifted to me by a close friend, because it was for Sammy, who loved Christmas and who we miss very much.
3. My favourite holiday treat is either anything CHOCOLATE or (now don’t laugh!) – mincemeat pie – I love it!!.
4. A holiday tradition in my house is Christmas morning breakfast – I make biscuits and sausage gravy using my Dad’s recipe – he’s long gone but his recipe lives on with ME!.
OK Mom – well done! Thanks for taking care of filling in this week. I would have had a tough time filling those in especially now that I’m an angel!
Our very VERY special friends, Kitties Blue (The Cat On My Head
) sent my Mom a most special holiday ornament this year – – – it’s a golden star with lights inside and it’s now “Sammy’s Star” which is in honor of yours truly………..it makes Mom and Dad’s hearts ache to see it but then they concentrate on the lights inside as they light the way to the Rainbow Bridge where I am now. It’s always “on” when they go to bed at night and they stop at the star and say “Goodnight Sammy” which I think is very special. Thank you Miss Janet for making my Mom and Dad so happy with the beautiful golden star of LOVE.
Sorry the picture is blurry! Mom had to take it without flash which means holding the camera still (NOT!)
Speaking of Angels, Mom promised to share a few more of the lovely tributes she was given when I went to the Bridge………….we may be doing them one at a time……it’s just easier for her!
Below is the graphic and poem sent to my Mom by Dr. Phoebe
and her sweet cat Samantha.
Cheer that blossomed within our hearts,
stirred by your presence at each day’s start,
yearns to wilt when you depart.
But our song will sing again, tomorrow.
The smiles that pierced through saddened guise,
the rays which conquered thundered skies,
they ache to dim neath heaven’s cries.
But the sun will rise again, tomorrow.
For many years our lives you blessed,
but the hour has come for you to rest,
to soar upon hills on golden crest.
So have no fear, tomorrow.
For on that day, I know we shall meet again.
Dedicated to Pam, in memory of Sammy ♥
