Thankful Thursday



beautiful remembrance


I am delighted and thankful for this beautiful remembrance of Giulietta sent to us by Pam and Teddy (Two Spoiled Cats). It looks purrfect with Fiona’s portrait and urn. I am grateful to have such a thoughtful friend in Pam. And I am especially thankful to see our two girls together again. (If you missed the post about Giulietta getting her angel wings, “Thankful for 11 Years,” you can find it here.

Dad Tom and I have a huge thankful. We have found a cat caregiver who will stay at the house 24/7, so we can spend Thanksgiving with Tom’s nephew and his family. For several years we have tried to make certain that at least one of us is home with Sawyer at all times. Though we have gone to a couple of events (before COVID), we’ve done nothing that would take us away for more than a few hours. As much as I wanted to see family, I was too nervous until we found Kit.

I am joining the Thankful Thursday blog hop hosted by Brian. You can do the same by posting on your blog for what you are thanks then clicking on the badge.

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

What an adorable inspiration photo Teddy and Angel Sammy provided for this week’s poetry challenge.



It is difficult to write a meaningful poem when the photo “says” it all. After a couple of failed attempts, I decided a haiku would be the better option.

Best friends: boy and dog
Adorable in matching shirts
Can I get a hug?

Lovely remembrance. Big healing hugs.

I’m glad you found a sitter for your kitties. It’s good to get away for a bit and not worry about your babies.

Love the poem. What a great shot.

Have a fabulous Thankful Thursday. Scritches to the kitties and a hug to mom. ♥

I am sure you have found a good sitter for Sawyer and I know he will be all right. I don’t know why, it just seems as if you’ve chosen the perfect person.

I love that Giulietta’s remembrance is by her beloved sister Fiona’s. It is as it should be….together again here AND at the Bridge. I’m so happy you like it. I really just LOVE your haiku for that precious photo. I knew it would bring some adorable poems and it has – I think next week’s may be a fun one as well! I’m so happy you and Tom will be able to spend Thanksgiving – finally – with family. We will be with family too and have MISSED that a lot. We are….among so many things….thankful for yours and Tom’s friendship. Hugs, Pam, David and Teddy too
