Theme Thursday for January 22, 2015 - ME

ME


This weeks new theme is ME!

I am me,
you are you,
look in a mirror
and you will see.

I bleed like you,
I die like you,
I cry like you,
I laugh like you,
I eat as do you,
I hurt like you,
I love like you.

I am me,
you are you,
I am millions,
look about,
and you will see.

I am me,
and you want to hurt me,
you want to convert me,
you want to force your beliefs on me,
you want to dress me,
you want to tell me how to live,
you want me to eat as you eat,
you want to take away my freedom,
you want me to be a barbaric savage like you,
you want me to bow down to your God.

I am me,
I can never be like you,
for I love all the other me's,
they are their own me's,
they are different me's,
look around you
and you will see all the me's,
me lets all the other me's just be,
me lets them believe,
or not to believe,
me celebrates their differences,
me wants them to be their own me,
me loves all the other me's, 
me even loves you.

But mostly me feels sorry for you,
you are a coward,
you are a bully,
you are a thug,
you are a thief,
you are a murderer,
you do all of this hiding behind your beliefs,
you maim men, women, and children,
all in the name of your beliefs,
you rape, you pilfer, you destroy,
you are an even bigger thief,
which means your hands should be chopped off,
again and again.

Me despises you,
me hopes your people wake up
someday and decides they do not want 
to be your people anymore
and in the name of your God 
they will destroy you,
along with your 40 virgins.

Me hopes that maybe then,
me and them 
will live in peace and harmony,
sharing a love for each others
rights to believe as we choose to believe.

When you are gone,
the me's pray that our children are safe,
our families are safe,
our beliefs are safe,
that the cowards who pervert their beliefs 
are no longer destroying the beauty of their beliefs,
or the beauty of our beliefs.

God bless the meek
for they shall inherit the earth.
Do you see a "me" in meek?
All the me's will be here when the you's
(cowards) are gone.
The me's who celebrate and love others
for their diversity.
God bless!!!

I finally just had to write something about the
terrorists out there, 
be they Islamic, Russian, African, Repressive Governments,
violent demonstrators, etc.
There are so many of them these days.

We must show no fear and write something
even if they try to forbid us.
Life is too short for us to be controlled by these bullies.

So how about you,
are you a "me" or a "you".

Please come back on Thursday
and let us know,
also how you feel about the "Me" poem.

See you Thursday,
Thanks again,
Mrsupole

Mr. Linky says he is a me, me, meek type!

Theme Thursday for January 15, 2015 - VIVACIOUS

VIVACIOUS


This weeks new theme is VIVACIOUS!

Yes, once in a while I could look vivacious.
Even sometimes today.
Although it is a little harder to be so lively,
I can still look happy.

How about you, are you happy, lively, vivacious?
Do you do things in a vivacious way?
Are people you know vivacious?

Please come back on Thursday and let us know 
how vivacious you are?
A vivacious poem, story, or picture would be nice!

See you Thursday!

Thanks again,
Mrsupole

Mr. Linky thinks he is very, very vivacious!

Theme Thursday for January 8, 2015 - INTENTIONS

INTENTIONS

From Pinterest

This weeks new theme is INTENTIONS!

I was reading an article about if we should tell our
children the truth about Santa and the Tooth Fairy,
and do we harm them by not doing it.

Some people wrote about how they were scarred for life,
while most said they were not, 
and some wished they had not found out for many more years.

I was around seven when I found out about Santa,
and what happened was that our mom
started making me and my sister wrap all the presents
every year after that.
We became excellent gift wrappers because of this.

How about you,
were you scarred for life
or
just accepted it for the joy it gives?

Do you carry on the tradition with your children?

Do you have intentions for other things in your life?
Such as getting organized, or to quit smoking,
lose weight, get healthy, etc?

Are some of these your New Year resolutions?
I never make any of these because I seem to 
never intend to follow them.
Big sigh!!!

Please come back on Thursday
and let us know what your intentions are!

See you then!

Thanks again,
Mrsupole

Mr. Linky's intentions are to be used again and again!

Theme Thursday for January 1, 2015 - TANTALIZING

TANTALIZING


This weeks new theme is TANTALIZING!

 This is the season when we can all
be tantalized by tantalizing things.

I pray that everyone will drive safe,
stay safe, and help to keep others safe.

Have fun and let this new year be better than last year.

Happy New Year to everyone!!!!!

There are so many tantalizing choices 
that we can make in our lives,
but is it always the best choice?
Only time will tell.

Please come back on Thursday
and let us know what is tantalizing to you
and some of the tantalizing things you have done.

See you Thursday!

Thanks again,
Mrsupole

Mr. Linky thinks he is a tantalizing choice!

Theme Thursday for December 25, 2014 - TOGETHERNESS

TOGETHERNESS


This weeks new theme is TOGETHERNESS!

Sometimes things just go together even if they have
a bad outcome!

This is how it can be with some families.
Many come together at this time and things are fine.
Others not so much, if you read the advice columns.

I sometimes wonder how we can expect everyone in the world
to get along when so many families cannot.
This is just something that we need to work on
and
teach our children to love everyone
regardless of how they look,
what their beliefs are,
whether they are rich or poor,
even if they are different then they are.
These are the things that make us a beautiful world
full of so many wonderful people.
I just wish everyone knew this.

My ancestors come from many places on this planet
and that makes my family a very diverse group of people.
When we are together there is one thing we do have in common.
We love each other very much 
regardless of any of our differences.
We are so thankful to be together.

How about you?
What do you think about togetherness?
Do you get together with your friends and family
during this time of year to celebrate
the different holidays around the world?

Please come back on Thursday 
and let us know about your togetherness.

See you Thursday!

Thanks again,
Mrsupole

 Merry Christmas to all who celebrate!
And Happy Holidays to all of you who celebrate other Holidays.

Mr. Linky loves the togetherness of everyone who uses him.

Theme Thursday for December 18, 2014 - EXCITED

EXCITED


This weeks new theme is EXCITED!

Everywhere you go people seem to be excited,  
or are they just stressed.
Maybe it is a little of both,
they are excited for the coming Holiday
and stressed about being able to afford it
or wanting to try and please everyone.
I think I feel that way.
Although I think it is easier to please children
than it is adults.

Thank goodness our large family get-together 
is over.
I think everyone had a great time
even though we missed our Mom very much.
We are getting as used to it as we can 
to being without her each holiday.
On Christmas day everyone then goes to
spend time with the other side of their family.
We are lucky that our daughters spend the night before
with the son-in-laws families
and Christmas Day with us.
They also do the cooking.  Yea!!

How about you, 
what are you excited about?

There are so many different Holidays
at this time for everyone to enjoy.
Which ones are you excited about?
Will you please share them with everyone here?

Please come back on Thursday and let us know.

See you Thursday!

Thanks again,
Mrsupole

Mr. Linky is excited to be here again!

Theme Thursday for December 11, 2014 - TOUCH

TOUCH


This weeks new theme is TOUCH!

TOUCH:  Come so close to an object or come into contact with it;
an act of touching someone or something;
a small amount; a trace.

I think that we, as humans, love to touch things.
We love to touch other humans and certain animals
or creatures, while at the same time not wanting to touch
certain things.
Mostly things that we think will cause us pain
or things that feel yucky.

I just got my iPhone 6Plus today.
It has the touch ID thingy on it.
To set that program up you have to keep touching
and touching and touching (without pressing)
the home button.
Then you have to do it again to set up the edges.
Touch, touch, touch, touch and then touch again.

I am sure that if someone was watching me do this
without knowing what I was doing would think
I should go to the funny farm.
Heck I felt like I was ready to go to the funny farm.

But I do have to say that now that it is set up it does 
make it easier to just do a "one touch" identification.

My favorite thing to touch just happens to be one of 
my grandkids.
It is hard to not want to touch one of them.
I have 13 and a half of them.
Lots and lots of love to give out.

How about you, what do you like to touch?

Please come back on Thursday
and
let us know what you like to touch!

See you Thursday!

Thanks again,
Mrsupole

Mr. Linky says, "Touch me, touch me!".

Theme Thursday for December 4, 2014 - BEWILDER

BEWILDER


This weeks new theme is BEWILDER!

BEWILDER:  Puzzle; lead astray.

I try to never bewilder people.
But I see so many people out there who do try to bewilder others.

Nature tries to bewilder us in so many different ways,
some that fill us with bewilderment,
and others that leave us bewildered.

Life is confusing enough without things
or people who try to bewilder us.

Who do you know who tries to bewilder you or others?
Do you try to bewilder anyone?

Please come back on Thursday with your take on bewildering
things that have happened in your life.

See you Thursday!

Thanks again,
Mrsupole

Mr. Linky likes to bewilder us when he is early!

Theme Thursday for November 27, 2014 - HAPPY

HAPPY


This weeks new theme is HAPPY!

Although I should probably have made it "Late".

I do not know why I am a day late,
but I guess when you are not the one making
the turkey then I guess one does not have to always 
remember the day.
Also not working and being sick so much does not help.

I am just so happy to still be here to celebrate.
I have made it more than double the ninety days.

How about you,
what are you happy about?

Please come back, or just stay
and let us know what makes you happy.

Thanks again,
Mrsupole

Mr. Linky wants to eat lots of turkey too.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone who celebrates!

Theme Thursday for November 20, 2014 - SQUASH

SQUASH


This weeks new theme is SQUASH!!!

SQUASH :  Crush flat or to pulp,
gourd-like vegetable

Do you like to squash things or do you like to eat squash?

I think I like to do both.

And is squishing something almost the same as squashing something?

I have to say that one of my favorite soups is
Butternut Squash.
If you have not tried it then please do,
it is yummy for the tummy.

So what about you, do you like squash or to squash?

Please come back on Thursday and let us know!

See you Thursday!

Thanks again,
Mrsupole

Mr. Linky does not want to be squashed!

Theme Thursday for November 13, 2014 - DETERMINED

DETERMINED


This weeks new theme is DETERMINED!!!

DETERMINED:  Resolute; staunch; decided; settled; resolved.

Every year I am determined that I am going to 
successfully grow an orchid.
And every year I fail.

I read the directions.
I try to find the perfect spot.
I try to water as per the directions.
I feed as per the directions.
And still I fail.

Then I think, "Oh well, I can always try again next year!"

What about you, what are you determined to do?

Please come back on Thursday
and let us know how determined you are about anything.

See you Thursday!

Thanks again,
Mrsupole

Mr. Linky was determined to show up early again!

Theme Thursday for November 6, 2014 - DIFFERENT

DIFFERENT


This weeks new theme is DIFFERENT!!!

DIFFERENT:  Unlike

This week here is the U.S.A. we had our Midterm Elections.

Each major party claims to be different than the other side,
along with many other smaller parties.

In so many ways they are alike and sometimes
the only thing that seperates them is the name of their party.

Sadly this causes them to never accomplish much,
no matter who is in power.

I think we should just get rid of the parties,  
just have people state their beliefs,
and 
if they are different from yours then you don't vote for them.
But I know things will never change.

All of us are so different in so many ways.
That is what makes us so interesting and beautiful.

I just wish we could all embrace our differences
and 
love each other all the more for those things about us that are 
different.

What about you, 
what do you think about things and people who are
different?

Please come back on Thursday
and let us know what you think about that which is 
different!

Thanks again,
Mrsupole

Mr. Linky likes being different!

Mischievous, ugly, dwarflike creatures of folklore!
Small, usually green, and cunning.

Yup, that pretty much describes those
trick or treater's.

will be up to in a few days?

Do you have anything to tell us 
about Goblins?

1. A dead body supposedly brought alive by
magic or other unknowns.

made with many different types of rum, 
liqueur, and a fruit juice.
Little umbrella included.
(Might be one of the unknowns to
