Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Before getting to the Valentines we are sending, we are letting Mom post the poem she wrote for Teddy and Angel Sammy’s Thoroughly Poetic Thursday.

This is the inspiration photo provided. Mom’s poem is below it.



Mothers & Daughters

Love between mother and child—
A special gift they give each other.
Their bond unbreakable; though,
Changing as each grows older.
My mother lived until I was 16.
I often wonder what our relationship
Might have been today at 69 and 98.
I envy friends who have their mothers;
Even if, their relationship isn’t perfect.
I know love grows beneath it and
Can be rekindled and nurtured.

Thankful Thursday

Now it’s time for those Valentines. We are posting them as part of the Thankful Thursday blog hop hosted by Brian. We all are grateful to have love in our lives from our humans who care for us. Some of us also are thankful for the love and “like” of other kitties. Not all of us have a Valentine, and Misty May posted hers yesterday. Here are the others.



Sawyer received his very first Valentine from Allie’s little sisfur, Noelle (Friends Furever). He was stunned and delighted and, of course, wanted to reciprocate.



Cooper Murphy is quite smitten with one of his Cat Scout friends, Tyebe (Canadian Cats). They attended the Cat Scouts Super Bowl Party as friends, and will be attending today’s Cat Scouts Valentine’s Day Party together. Her mom thinks Tyebe is too young to date, but is allowing Tyebe and Cooper Murphy to attend events together as friends.



Wishing everyone a day of love.

That is a beautiful poem Mom Janet and sorry that you lost your Mom at so young. Happy Valentine’s Day to all the Kitties Blue and most especially to my beautiful friend Giulietta and our dearest Angel Fiona. I miss you G, sorry that I haven’t been by lately but I think of you and send you kitty kisses.

A most adorable poem on Mothers and daughters. Thank you Lady Blue.

The Valentine cards are beautiful. Especially CooperM’s valentine to me. You are such a soft and loveable guy, CooperM.

Happy Valentine’s Day to the whole family and a special hug for my special friend.
