Thursday – time to HOP with Brian and be thankful “out loud”. If you want to join in on the Hop – just click his badge above and link up with us. We all have things we’re thankful for and we share them on Thursday every week thanks to our host Brian. One of my thankfuls this week is that (truly) I’m happy I have a warm place to live. We’ve had single digit nights and some days below 20 and I haven’t even been too interested in going outside myself – and I know all the homeless animals out there wish they didn’t have to be out there too. It breaks our hearts knowing there are so many “roamers” looking for shelter or food. I’m THANKFUL I’m not one of them and THANKFUL that we do what we can to help.
I’m always thankful that Angel Sammy’s poetic Thursday post gets to me in time to make it part of my Thursday post at Brian’s……………so here’s what he sent to me last night!
Let’s Share Poetry!!
Hello friends……….all is well at the Rainbow Bridge – we have new Angels arriving all the time – seems more in Winter than any other time of the year. We even have a Poetry Group up here because everyone loves a good poem. I hope that you wrote one to share this week – I gave you a photo and let’s just see what you did with it OK?
Here’s the photo I gave you to inspire your poem for today followed by MY poem:
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©January 22, 2020
Life can be much like a boat on the sea
Facing rough water or smooth as can be
When things get overwhelming we just hang on tight
And hope for calm seas to return to make things right
Each storm that we face and each wave that we crest
Serves as a reminder that we are indeed blessed
We eventually reach shore and get back on solid ground
But never forget the reminder of our faith that we found……..
Boats in rough seas are tossed about like toys in a tub on a stormy day………and life has its’ share of stormy days too. If we just hang on tight – don’t panic – and have faith in ourselves and our ability to persevere, we can get through any challenge we meet. When I found this photo it was my first thought really……..life has its’ share of rough seas but we get through them to calm water again eventually.
There you have it – my poem for today and if you have a poem to share – let us know in comments – we want to read yours too!! Here’s next Thursday’s poem……..I hope you find some inspiration in it and write a poem to share NEXT Thursday based on it:
I’ve used a lot of “old” vintage type photos lately but I find a lot of fun things in old photos. A lot of “forgotten” things. My Mom said she can’t remember the last time she saw kids playing jump rope but it was BIG in her day. She said this two rope jumping was “double dutch” and not as easy as people thought!
So I’ll look forward to seeing you next week again and hopefully reading a poem you’ve written. YOU CAN WRITE ONE – don’t say you can’t………………..!!!!
Love, Angel Sammy
Thank you Angel Sammy………………………..I liked it! A lot………..but then I just love hearing from you PERIOD.
