Poetic Thankful Thursday

 Today is Poetic Thursday hosted by our pals Teddy and Angel Sammy at Two Spoiled Cats



Today's photo prompt is:


Gone Fishing!

I remember when I was a little one
Grandpa would take me fishing and we'd have fun.
Not on a river or a lake
A trip to the ocean we would make.
Early in the morning, we'd head to the boat
Fishing gear and sandwiches we'd tote.
He taught me how to hook the bait
Then we'd cast our lines and wait!

When Mom was a little girl she really did go deep-sea fishing with her Grandpa.
It was a special time for the two of them and she has great memories of those days.



Today is also Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!


We are thankful that Mom was the ONLY Firstie on Teddy's Tuesday Teaser!  That's never happened before!!  We got this super-duper special badge!

We're also THANKFUL for our many friends who left nice comments on our Tuesday post remembering our Daddy on the 4th anniversary of his going to Heaven.  You are the BEST!

Missing our Daddy - Four Years

Four years ago, at 1:32 pm our Daddy left us to go to Heaven.  That day our lives were forever changed and our hearts shattered into a million pieces.

Mom made a collage of photos of happier days. We share this every year but we know we have new friends who never saw it.  We had to add the one in the middle with the radar gun that Mom Pam from Two Spoiled Cats did for us a couple of years ago.  Daddy loved being a Satellite Beach Police Volunteer.  Other photos are of holidays, vacations, Guardian ad Litem and silly fun days.




























It It sure seems impossible that another year has gone by.  We miss him so much and still can't believe he is gone.  We know he's still with us in spirit but that's not the same as having him here with us for real. We know he was there to welcome Angel Allie but we're still heartbroken.  We hope he loves Reesie as much as we do.  When we lost Angel Ellie and Daddy was in the hospital, Mom promised we would get another Birman girl to love.  Reesie is that girl.

                                           






Thank you all for traveling this journey with us.  You will never know how much your support has meant to us.

On a happier note, don't miss out on Periwinkle and Stinky's Adventure today at The Cat On My Head.  Click HERE to teleport over!

Monday Sparks

 Even though McGuffy's reader is taking a break, we are continuing our Monday Sparks posts!  From the original Sparks posts:

Welcome to Sparks. Many years ago, it was my intent to post an inspirational thought each Monday. It would be my weekly meditation, and perhaps feed other people's spirit as well. Life got busy, and this fell by the wayside. Now, I feel a strong need to bring this feature back. 
The negative energy in the world has become thick and oppressive. Social media has become a part of this dark, negative storm. There is an obvious universal need for more positive energy and peace. And, we can all be part of this affirmative change. 
I believe we are meant to be lights in this world. If we allow our light to shine, we can see where we are going. It is then that we can begin to truly see each other clearly. Together, we can light up the entire world!
I hope you will join us. Please link up a positive quote, thought, poem, or verse. The badge and code can be found in my sidebar. Add the badge to your post to invite others. The more, the merrier. I welcome your thoughts. Peace.


Here is our Sparks post for today.  We've had lots of losses in  September over the years but we also know each one made us who we are today.

Sunday Selfies

 We're pawticipating in The Cat on My Head's Sunday Selfies today.



Hi new friends.  My new Mom told me that my friends would really love it if I did today's Selfie.  I had no idea what to do but, with her help, I tried.  How did I do?  I did my best to get my floofy tail in too.

Patriot Day Twenty Years later

 

We will never forget...

By FAR the day that stands out to most of us in history is 9/11/01. Today, 20 years later, we will never forget... where we were that day... what we were doing when we heard... 
Mom and Dad had just returned from a cruise to Alaska.  Dad's brother and a friend were here because they took care of us while Mom and Dad were away.  The TV was on and someone said a plane crashed into the World Trade Center.  Mom immediately called Auntie El who still lived in New Jersey to tell her. Together they all watched the second plane crash into the second tower.  For days after that, Mom says she just remembers silence and numbness. Everyone seemed to whisper, everyone was polite... it was strange. No airplanes in the sky. Constant reminders that life would never be the same again... Even though life eventually got back to normal, even though it was a new normal, America had been changed. We will never forget. 

Where were you when you heard?










Our prayers are with the families who lost loved ones in the Towers, at the Pentagon and in the field in Pennsylvania.

We're joining Athena's Caturday Art Blog Hop with our post.

Fun times in the neighborhood
For sure, life was good.
