Letter from Heaven

The thing about life is that there is always an end. When you love something or someone, it’s hard to comprehend the idea of that loss someday. I guess you didn’t want to admit it. I didn’t want to admit it either. I didn’t feel well at the time, but I feel strong again up here. I know that you now feel weak, but you have to build yourself up again. Remove the rubble from your foundation and rebuild. You provided a home for me, a place of safety; something many animals don’t have the luck of experiencing.Thank you. People used to joke that I was like your baby, always being held and nurtured until perfectly soothed. Babies always grow up. Think of it like that; I have only grown up and moved away to start a new beginning.I still chase daylight while enjoying a nap or two, by the way. Nothing has changed, just grown.

I should probably take this time to apologize for all the furniture I scratched up throughout my life with you. The couch was just so perfect for my paws, I couldn’t resist! The furniture was almost as tempting to play with as your hair and shoelaces, but I figured you would like to be included in the fun too. Oh, and sorry for finding the toilet paper too exciting and unrolling it when you weren’t looking.

Thank you for blessing me with love. I know I am beyond lucky to have gotten you as my angel.

~ Lots of love from the other side of the bridge, your best friend.

    She is happy I know, she is playing and napping and that gives me comfort. I will always love you Sweetpea.

    This is so helpful..thank you it does make me cry more but 6months ago I lost my baby Delilah.. she wasn’t even a year old but I spent everyday with her until my puppy got sick with parvo..I had to give all my attention to her until the end when she finally started to get better..delilah started to fade and just stopped breathing one night..all I can remember is waking up to her lifeless body on a chair..I didn’t sleep with her that night so she was probably so scared..but I do feel super guilty bc I started noticing the signs after she passed..she’d watch me do my makeup a lot but suddenly stopped..she looked weak and hid a lot..I can’t help but think that night she left she was probably calling out for me and looking for me..I could of done more.. 💔
