Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! Today we are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop and Sammy’s Poetry Day.

I am thankful that my folks never get mad at me. Look at the paper I shredded and they just laugh and say I am an artist. .Sorry about the laser eyes, mom could use a photography class. I am also thankful that I will get to see my Grammie today.

And here is my poem based on this photo:

A little over a year ago,
can’t remember if there was snow.
Our friend, Sammy was ready to leave
his passing everyone would grieve.
Before he left, he took a ride
in a hot air balloon, riding inside.
We each showed him a special place
we chose Emily Dickinson’s birth place.
I know you already know it,
but Sammy was an excellent poet.
More than that , he was a friend to all
and when he left, we all did bawl.

Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two.


1. I have never been able to _____________________.

2. I wish I could still ___________________.

3.  ____ is my ideal winter night.

Prancie has her poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day, participants were asked to write a poem based on this photo:

Creativity is always fun
yet different for everyone.

Hi everyone! Can you see me?

My Dad rigged up the bottom bunk bed for me to stay in when someone is not around to watch me. They are afraid I will get hurt jumping down from a chair.

I have lots of cozy blankies and pillows and a litter box too. Don’t worry, I am not a prisoner, I get out a lot.

I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am thankful my Dad will do anything for me, mom will too.

And here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day, featuring the letter W.
