Thankful Thursday

We are starting today with our thankfuls. Our dad asked us to let everyone know how much he appreciated your birthday wishes yesterday. He truly is a great dad, and we are blessed to have him in our lives.

Our second thankful is what our mom calls a silver lining thankful. Sawyer had a grand mal seizure at 6 a.m. Wednesday morning. Though he’d had a few smallish focal seizures, it had been one month and one day since his last severe seizure. The good news (silver lining) is that the seizure ceased naturally after just a few minutes. Mom was ready with the valium but didn’t need to use it.

Mau and Cooper Murphy are thankful for completing the requirements at Cat Scouts to earn their Stormy Weather merit badge. After attending class and watching a video about storms, they wrote a report about ice storms and passed their quiz with a grade of 90 percent. They highly recommend Cat Scouts for its opportunities to learn, serve and have a heck of a good time.

Thankful Thursday is a blog hop hosted by everyone’s friend, Brian. To join in, click on his badge.

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Each week our friends, Teddy and Angel Sammy (Two Spoiled Cats), host a poetry challenge based on a photo they have selected to serve as inspiration for our poems. Today’s photo is actually an oil painting by Norman Rockwell, entitled, “First Signs of Spring.”




Though our mom didn’t write much of a poem, it does speak to spring, which unfortunately is still a month away.

Awaiting Spring

Our daffodils are coming up,
But today they’re covered with snow.
When the flowers will appear,
It is impossible to know.

She claims the measly four lines say everything they need to say. Hmmph! Anyhoo, if you’d like to read Sammy’s poem, which we know will be terrific, click on the poetry badge. You also will find links in the comment section to poems from your fellow bloggers.

Until tomorrow…
