Thankful and Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Standard

Hello Friends!    Today is our double day – starting with being THANKFUL then moving into POETRY.    Of course this time of year most of us tend to focus on the many things we are thankful for (or SHOULD be thankful for!)………….I’m thankful that we didn’t get as much snow as originally predicted for our area – the BIG SNOW remained South but that meant that a lot of people who don’t normally see a lot of white stuff, DID.    NC and Southern Virginia were hammered as you know!    The photos we saw were amazing.   We had just under two inches and it’s pretty well gone now.   Thankful?  OH YES WE ARE!

I’m also very thankful that that wifi connection Angel Sammy has never lets us down.  I got his poem last night along with his message……….I’ll share it with you!

GREETINGS FROM THE BRIDGE!!

Hi everybody.  It’s that time of the week again – time for us to stretch our wings (which Angels do literally!), and share some poetry.    Each Thursday I give you a photo to use as inspiration for the following week.   You all are FANTASTIC because those of you who have been participating are doing a wonderful job of being creative.   I hope more and more of you decide to give writing a poem a try and sharing your work with us via our comments with a link to where we can read YOUR poem!     After I share last week’s photo (below) and my poem inspired by that photo, I will give you a NEW photo for you to think about and study and ultimately write a poem about (I hope).

Ready?   Set?   GO!

“Twas The Night Before Christmas…..”

Poem By Angel Sammy Kimmell     December 12, 2018

The malls are alive with the sound of crowds

Everyone laughing and talking real loud

Lines are long and patience is short

Especially this is true in the Mall food court!

Stores are restocking to keep up with the buyers

Little kids forced to come shopping turn into cryers!

Gift wrappers have lines and learn to be FAST

Those bows and all that tape just better last!

Wall to wall people as far as you can see

Sales people anxious for closing time so they can be FREE

In spite of the craziness and the panic and such

Nobody seems to mind or care all that much

Because the holidays are here and the smiles are for real

Santa Claus is coming soon and that’s a BIG DEAL!!

 

HAHAHA…….I had some fun with this.    I hope you enjoyed tackling this photo too.   I had several write to me to say they thought it was a perfect photo for close to Christmas.    This probably is what 90% of the Malls look like RIGHT NOW but certainly on those last two or three nights before Christmas!    Are you ready for NEXT week’s photo?    Even CLOSER to Christmas………

I love the photo for next week…………….just love it.

I’ll show you a photo of my Mom as a little girl visiting Santa……….don’t tell her I showed it to you though!

My Dad teases Mom about this one – the number on the side of Santa’s chair – he wonders if that’s his prison number or something.   HAHAHAHA    This was actually taken when my Mom saw Santa in Weisbaden, Germany when they lived there a million years ago.   I personally think this Santa looks a little scary.   Mom doesn’t seem to think so though – she looks totally fascinated.

Anyway, your photo for next week is NOT the one with Mom but the cute one above it with the little girl in her tartan outfit!!    I’ll look forward to writing my own poem about the photo AND to reading all of yours!

I hope all of you are being EXTRA good right now – you know Santa keeps a very close eye on all of us at Christmas time and really all year through.   I hope you are on his NICE list!

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

See you next Thursday…….meanwhile I’m sending you a holiday hug…..

Angel Sammy

Thanks Angel Sammy……………I’m anxious to read everyone’s poems too.    I’m also anxious to hear from you again next week.    I always AM…………………..

Hugs, Teddy

 

Thankful and Poetic THANKSGIVING

Standard

Today is of course Thanksgiving here and in many other places and we think it’s the PERFECT arrangement because Thanksgiving focused our attention on our “thankfuls” and Brian’s Thankful Thursday is right there to remind us to share!     First we thank Brian for HAVING Thankful Thursday – and if you want to join in this Hop – click the blue graphic and join in the Hop to share your “thankfuls” !!    We in my house are thankful for many things……..I’m certainly thankful I got adopted into this happy home, and my Mom and Dad say they are thankful they found me at the shelter too.   I know that Angel Sammy had something to do with that (!) so I am most thankful to him for that.      I’m thankful for our many friends online and offline as well – we are so blessed to have so many.

We mean that too!!!!

As we wind down the month of November, we are getting closer to the one year anniversary since Angel Sammy got his wings and took off in his beautiful balloon to visit all of his friends one last time on December 2nd………it was the saddest day ever for my Mom and Dad but thankfully he remains in touch with us – we feel him in our hearts all the time.    He didn’t let me down this week either because in spite of his busy Angel duties, he transmitted his POETRY to us yet again via his wi-fi cloud connection at the Bridge!

♥♥♥♥

Happy Thanksgiving from the Bridge!

Oh I would never let you or my little brother Teddy down that’s for sure – so I did write a poem for today……….you may remember that we are up to the letter “X” in the alphabet challenge and last week I told you because “X” is a toughie to come up with a word for, you could write about ANYTHING you wanted to this Thursday.     I’m sure I’m not the only one who will do a poem about Thanksgiving right?    I hope you wrote a poem to share with us – you can put your blog link in our comments here OR put your poem in our COMMENTS if you want to.    Please give writing a poem a try – I promise you will enjoy doing it and enjoy sharing it too!     

 “Happy Thanksgiving”

By Angel Sammy Kimmell, Nov. 23, 2017

Today is the day that some of us sing

“Thank You God” for so many things

Thanks for teaching us love although some lose their way

Thanks for allowing us to talk with you when we pray

Thanks for our homes, our friends, and our health

For these things are riches beyond monetary wealth.

Thanks for blue skies, green grass, and abundant love

We would wish that for everyone on the wings of a dove

A dove is a symbol of peace we all know

We hope we may feel peace in our hearts as it glows

We are thankful for each moment, each hour, and each day

And so very thankful that you will show us THE WAY…………………

 

I hope you will take time today to be THANKFUL……………..I am so thankful that you all visit our blog every day and play along with us as we have fun here every day of the week.    We are coming down to the wire on our ALPHABET CHALLENGE with poetry and next week we have one of the TWO last letters of the alphabet to celebrate – the letter “Y”!     Just in case you need a little help thinking of something to write your poem about, here are some suggested words – BUT remember you can write a poem about ANYTHING that starts with the letter “Y” !    Ready?

(1) Yesterday (2) Yummy (3) Yellow (4) Year

I wish each and everyone of you who is celebrating Thanksgiving today lots of love, good food, good cheer and friendship……………………we are blessed!   I want to leave you with a BIG SMILE – this one is courtesy of my hero, Garfield!!!

♥♥♥♥

Well Angel Sammy I couldn’t have said it better myself (the poem OR the Garfield graphic….haha).     We will see everyone next week for “Y” day…………..and we will also be announcing what the NEW Poetry Challenge will be once we reach “Z” !    Hopefully you will like our idea…………………in the meantime – give someone a HUG today – you will be glad you did and they will be THANKFUL for it!

With Love and Thanks, Angel Sammy and Teddy too
