rememberMe with Love...
As years pass by, and others rarely mention my name,
remember me with love.
take a moment to say my name out loud.
If tears fall, let them.
Wherever you are, know that I am.
I live in your heart, mind and soul.
Don't worry, you will never forget me
and we will be together again.
I have taught you many things
in a way nothing else possibly could.
Don't waste this lesson,
use the love you still have to give to others.
Comfort others who have had a loss, do it in my memory.
A little bit of me, lives on in each person you touch.
You have the power to make my legacy,
one that I would be proud of.
Light a candle, buy a rose, perform an act of kindness.
Our love is so great,
no remembrance could ever be large enough
to show how much you love me,
for true love has no boundaries.
And don't forget, I love you too.
Look at a puffy cloud, flower or bird and have no doubt;
my angel spirit is.
Contemplate the many gifts I've left,
how I've affected your life in a good way.
I've shown you how precious life is
and given you a greater appreciation of it.
I've let you discover how strong you really are.
I hope my short time here has made you discover what is really important
Has it made you a better person? I hope so!
Your faith has been tested, and hopefully it has strengthened.
I hope your heart is filled with peace.
Most of all, know that our love is eternal.
If you think of me today, I will be rejoicing from above.
To know you have remembered me
Remember me with love!

MISTY ROSE, ON YOUR FIRST YEAR ANGEL DAY!
The breeze is really picking up outside and at the bridge, all our little ones were all fluttering about ... it's lil Misty Ros's first angel day and they are celebrating. Yes she has her wings!!! She was so amazed at their beauty she kept on opening them, then closing them, then opening them and closing them .... causing the air to raeally pick up speed ... being such a quick learner she knew it would send our thoughts soaring ... and wanted nothing more than to spread her wings and fly.
So much activity at the bridge, each of the kids played, dancing, singing and eating ... so many balloons graced the sky ... suspended by a string no one could see. as our little ones danced about they too danced and spun in the sky casting reflections across the bridge, the illuminations were so tranquil, some spining as their reflection glimmered all over the bride, it made our kids smile.
In their hearts they are oh so happy, they each other and with them a special gift, our love and they keep it with them always. Soon the night began to dance among the stars as they danced brighter than ever in the sky ... as Misty lifted her head up high she began to smile ... all of a sudden her cake was weeled in to the room, OMG it was beautiful! It mad many layers and as the candles glowed ... their was a warmth that culd be felt around them ... it was our love and all the well wishes and thoughts being sent her way ... as she stood there surrouded by her friends the candles let out a warm glow ... Mosty Rose stood in front of the cake, bent her head and made a wish ... "Mommy and all our friends at home ... May you know how much all your love has meant to me and how I have it with me still, the life we shared was so wonderfulI can't begin to tell you, but I will give ou deep thoughts, memories and dreams ... when you are sad and missing me remember .... love does not vanish, it only changes form, and one day we will be with each other again. She lifts her head and blows out the candles whispering "a lifetime of happiness" ... and my love ... it will be with you still, may it always surround you ... With that Misty blew out the candles and the flames flickered and danced, just as the stars would fill the night sky their love will alwyas fill our heart.
That night when her mommy went to bed Misty curled up beside her ... can you feel the warmth mama, know in your heart my love will always surround you! and the kindness of all my friends too!
Upon the wings of angels we send you our dream, the one in which when you realize ... they will always be with you. Many Hugs, Luna and her mom Nadine
Many hugs and tiny kisses, Luna & her mom Nadine

I could not let the day pass without wishing you well. I know how hard this day is. Without the friends our fur angels brought to us think of how much harder it would be. I am sure your precious Misty Rose is close by you today wishing she could comfort you with a kiss or snuggle. Remember your girl with the love and joy she would wish you to and do something today that your enjoyed doing with her in remembrance of your years together.
Her Journey's Just Begun
Don't think of her
as gone away-
her journey has just begun.
Life holds many facets,
the Earth is only one.
Just think of her
as resting from
the sorrows and the tears,
in a place of
warmth and comfort
where there are
no days and years.
she must be wishing
that we could know today,
but our sadness
can really pass away.
And think of her
in the hearts
of those she touched,
For nothing loved
is ever lost-
And she was loved

In the driveway spins Maddies little convertable-
ABSOLUTELY Loaded! Thank goodness for convertables thinks Maddie as she begins to unload more appitizers and the makings for MORE punch.
Up behinf Maddies little convertable comes Luke in his truck packed with wrapped gifts from Maddtique and huge instraments. In Gold letters the side of the truck says 'LUKE & THE BOXERS DOWN BY THE LAKE' The lettering was a gift to Luke from Maddie and she smiles at old English lettering she had ordered. SOooo Luke, she thinks to herself, a dreamy, far-away look on her little white face. "Maddie, STOP daydreaming and CARRY-ON" booms Luke, his deep baritone voice startling the daydreaming Maddie. HUmmmmmph....thinks Maddie. He would NOT BOOM out at me THAT way IF he KNEW I was daydreaming 'bout HIM! MEN!!!!!!! In spite of her irritation, Maddie DOES carry on and needless to say, Luke just melts at the sight of little Maddie and hands her a perfect Pink rose from the heavenly garden Maddie & Misty have planted...a rose for HIS Rosebud AND Luke's mamma was alwas RIGHT and she taught him RIGHT. The lady is ALWAYS right !(even when it does NOT seem THAT way)
The two fur-angels, Maddie & Luke work hard to unload everything with cuddles help. Cuddles is mumbling something about where is his son when you NEED help when a scooter suddenly turns into the curved shell driveway. Puck driving with Lunaon the back, shiny black hair blowing in the wind.
"Many PAWS makes light of work", chirps Luna and before long the convertable and truck and what was tied onto the scooter is unloaded and brought into the condo above Maddtique.
Dale begins setting up instraments on the terrace for Lukes band and he carefully sets up his microphone to the perfect height for his solo...special just for Misty Rose.
The day is beautiful. The weather just unbelievable A little like Fla., a little like Hawaii, a little like Figi....GOSH, it is JUST NOT describable! It is HEAVEN, after all. Sunshine, lightly floral scented breezes, the kind that never mess your hair but just kiss your face, ever so lightly and NEVER let the kids out on the little sailboats in the harbor become becalmed. Blue birds fly overhead and the sounds of waterfalls in the gardens behind Maddtique can be heard...why the heady sent of the ocean can be smelled everywhere, and at night the coolness of the mountains comes down to surround the little fur angels making sleeping out under the stars just a dream. Misty's mom did a picture of her with her easter eggs in all THAT lushness. Misty REALLY wondered JUST how her mamma had pictured it OH SO RIGHT...... Must have been when I brought her here in THAT dream a while back, Misty finally decided.
Caliya and Gretchen & baily and Kia are out back decorating the Gazebo.....All the gifts are to be piled in the little white structure and WHAT is THAT in the Birdbath??????? The Bluebirds just keep flying by in SUCH a confused way. "SHOOOOOO.......oooooo....." yells Cuddles waving his arms, "DO NOT touch THAT Cherry pie! My sisters Fav. and I stayed up ALL night making it!" Every cherry was hand-picked by Cuddles and the crust was made of the finest ingredients with the flaky-ness only REAL creamery butter can impart.
TODAY, The FIRST year Angelversary Of Misty Rose, EVERYONE is OFF their diets!

Vicki, remembering your precious little girl, Misty Rose, on her One Year Angelversary. What wonderful pages you have made for her special day. The Life in Heaven is a great page with your 2 babies, and the One Year Gone writing really touched my heart, that is very beautiful. I know this day is a hard one, but I hope the memories you hold close to your heart can bring a smile to your face today. I know Saada and all the angels at Rainbow Bridge will be making Misty Rose's day extra special. Sending big hugs and warm thoughts your way today.
This Tender Path
There was a time not long ago
I couldn't feel you near,
I'd cry myself to sleep at night
and watch dawn break through tears.
Encased in pain and sorrow
I couldn't plainly see
the essence of your precious soul
waiting for me so patiently.
I searched my heart with restless speed
but the desperate pace I'd set
caused a shroud to camouflage
the loving signs you sent.
In your own angelic way
you stilled my hurried quest
to reaffirm the love we shared
and put my fears to rest.
You let me know it mattered not
our length of time together,
for time can't measure what we had
nor can our bond it sever.
You showed me that the grief we feel
is a necessary challenge,
and support we give to grieving souls
should remain steadfast in balance.
Learning kindness and compassion
I walk this tender path with care
in the knowledge that your love lives on
through the common bond we share.
I won't take my purpose lightly
and your message is not lost…
Give back the love that's paved upon
this tender path I walk.

I'm not gone...not really.
I haven't gone away...I've only gotten bigger.
My eyes, so bright, now shine among the stars.
My voice sings with the wind in winter, as I leap
And dance among the tree tops.
I stalk the blown leaves in autumn, and brush the
Flowers gently in the spring.
I come to you in dreaming, on feet grown dreamtime soft,
And lay my cheek against yours, and whisper:
"Peace be with you."
Someday we will play again together, you and I, among the stars.
'Til then, fear not to love, for your love gave my life meaning.
And I return that love to you...a hundredfold...a thousandfold...

Remembering Misty Rose on her first Angel Day Vicki your pages are beautiful, its a hard day my thoughts are with you Whispers from Heaven
They say that life is fleeting
I know that this is true
I left this world so quickly
With no goodbye to you.
I know how much you miss me
Your tears fall ever light
The pillow where you lay your head
Is wet with them at night.
I know your heart is hurting
The words we left, unsaid
I love you’s, left unspoken
Are spinning in your head.
The strength that I have carried
That served to make you whole
Remains to make you stronger
Within your grieving soul.
For you see, while you were weeping
On the day I passed away
At the gravesite near the flowers
Where my loved ones knelt to pray.
An angel came to see me
She took me by the hand
She led me to a kingdom
In a very distant land.
As I look down from heaven
And see you standing there
Your heart so ever burdened
With more grief than it can bear.
I long to bring you comfort
I long to give you peace
I long to hold you closely
Cause all your tears to cease.
The joy I’ve found in heaven
Goes far beyond compare
The love that’s so elusive
Can be found here everywhere.
The light is softly shining
There’s no storm clouds here or rain
There’s no teardrops found in heaven
There’s no suffering, there’s no pain.
You needn’t be so troubled
Stay close to God and pray
That someday we’ll be together
One bright and glorious day.
So my love, you shouldn’t question
My dear you need not cry
I’ve gone to be with Jesus
I really didn’t die.
04-17-2010 8:31 AM -- By: Cheryl, From: P.A
I am home in Heaven, dear ones;
Oh so happy and so bright!
There is perfect joy and beauty
In this everlasting light.
All the pain and grief are over,
Every restless tossing passed;
I am now at peace forever,
Safely home in Heaven at last.
Did you wonder how I so calmly
Trod the valley of the shade?
Ah! But Jesus love illumined
Every dark and fearful glade.
And He came Himself to meet me
in that way so hard to tread;
And with Jesus' arm to lean on,
Could I have one doubt or dread?
Then you must not grieve so sorely,
For I love you dearly still;
Try to look beyond earth's shadows,
Pray to trust our Father's will.
There is work still waiting for you,
So you must not idly stand;
Do it now while life remaineth,
You shall rest in Jesus' land.
When that work is all completed,
He will gently call you Home;
Oh, the rapture of the meeting!
Oh, the joy to see you come!
All the pain and grief are over,
Every restless tossing passed,
Now at peace forever,
Safely Home In Heaven At Last!

You are an angel beyond words in every way and we love & appreciate you & your Mom, thanks for your kindness always!
An angel's first year in heaven
Please don't weep for me no more
Don't let grief consume your life.
For I am in a state of bliss
No sorrow or no strife.
For death is not the end of all
It's but the very start.
I have left my love with you
To hold within your heart.
It's not a year without me
It's a year with God and glory.
It's not the end of a life
But the beginning of my story.
For I have not left you
I am with you everywhere.
All the things we used to do
I'm by your side to share.
So the loneliness that you feel
Please try to turn around.
For the author of my life
Has brought me to hollowed ground.
My life among the angels
Was what God planned for me.
Please accept that He knows
I'm where I'm suppose to be
"Angels are always memorable because they never forget what really matters"

There is a bond that you can't see
for it's not bound with twine.
It's formed from strands within our souls,
this love that's yours and mine.
When I went home to be with God,
you must now understand,
I took with me this bond of love
and I still hold that strand.
So look now at my photograph.
The smile, you'll quickly see.
But only hearts can see the strand
forever binding You and Me.
Enjoy the precious memories
although we are apart.
We'll share more joys again one day.
I believe that with all my heart!

-Cuddles looks this way and that out of the door to his room. HMmmmm......."looks like the coast is clear-full steam ahead, Maddie, my friend" Maddie nods her head popping up her ponytail at the same time. "Cuddles YOU get the boxes under the bed while I climb to the top shelf in the closet." Misty's brother, Cuddles and her cuz-2 of a kind, maddie, have been planning this angel day surprise for some time now.....a party for tons of their friends AND a huge gold edge mirror on a stand for Misty to view her huge, glowing, NEW, one year- golden wings tomorrow.
Maddie has asked all the Maltese cousins to pick up the cake and Maddie, herself has tried her hand at making a few gourmet treats(Martha Stew-pups NEW book) along with all the treats coming in from Malta! Caliya had offered to travel over HERSELF to bring back all the goodies from malta But THAT offer was abandoned VERY quickly for obvious reasons......
"Hurry, Cuddles..get all the decorations out from PAWTY ON and PAWMARK.Are there enough candles?" Cuddles scratches his curly little head,"AHhhh,,,Maddie, my dear...we ONLY need ONE candle, THIS is Misty's FIRST angel year, same as it was for you a few months ago...did you have MORE than ONE candle?"Maddie thinks back...HMmmm guess you are right. ONE candle SHOULD do it."
Two little fur-bottoms up in the air working in all the boxes...tissue paper EVERYWHERE.......

BEYOND THE CLOUDS
Beyond the clouds,
beyond the blue of the sky.
Is our final destination,
the place we go when we die.
While I wander here on earth,
this place is where you now call home.
The world carries on,
even when Heaven is your home.
At night I look up to the stars,
gazing at each touchless light.
They are much closer than you,
Heaven is not in my sight.
But if we should meet again,
it is there that I would see your face.
At last be free from the sorrow down here,
when I meet you in your Heavenly place.

Feeling down in the dumps

A heart is broken,

A friend gone away...
The rain has stopped.

reflects, upon a sad face.
The bow came out...

reminded me one of God's covenant...

Hello From Heaven
It's me again from Heaven
With a message from above
Feel my spirit all around you...
As I sprinkle you with love
I have watched you, as your tears flow
I have heard your silent screams
I know you sleep with visions...
Of me visiting your dreams
I have come and sat beside you
Placed my paws upon your face
Wiped away the many teardrops
I so wish I could erase
I have watched you every day now
Seen such pain within your eyes
I just wish that there were some way
I could help you realize...
I am happy up in Heaven
In this peaceful loving place
Where I will be here waiting
To welcome you with my embrace
You will join me here in Heaven
When your time comes you will see
Leave your Earthly cares behind you
Travel on to where your free
I have heard you ask to go now...
but there is more for you to do
I promise I'll be waiting
In your time to come get you
Until that day does happen
Feel the love I send your way
Every single moment...
Of every single day

I feel it everyday,
I'm not that far away.
Please don't cry those tears,
Or waste away your years.
God has work for you,
There's something you must do.
God's message will be clear,
When the time is near.
Just hold me in your heart,
We'll never be apart.
Remember Jesus loves me,
He gave his life to set me free.
Because Jesus has risen,
I see him each day in heaven.
They love me like you do, Mommy,
And they take good care of me.
So don't worry, and don't be late,
I'll be waiting at heaven's gate.

The Greatest Gift
I always knew this time would come
From the very first time our eyes first met
How I loved you then! How I love you now!
I made a promise then and I keep that promise now.
You will not suffer from a pain that will not heal,
You will not know the loss of a life remembered, now gone.
It is for me alone to make this decision.
The price for the bright joy and pure laughter.
You brought me during the time we shared.
I am the only one who can decide when it is time
Just when I need you most, I must let you go.
It is for you alone to tell me when you are ready,
For without your guidance, I will not know
When to lay my grief, my guilt, my anger,
My sorrow and my selfish heart aside
And give you the last gift, the greatest gift.
Your eyes will speak to mine, and I will know.
The pain of this moment is excruciating,
Tears stream down my face in a river of sorrow,
And my heart drowns in a pool of grief.
For you have spoken and I have listened
And unlike other decisions I have made,
This one brings no relief...no comfort...no peace
For if there's one thing I have learned...
Unconditional love has a condition after all.
I must be willing to let you go when you speak to me,
I must accept my pain so you can be free of yours.
Go easily now, go quickly now,
Do not linger here, it is time for you to leave.
Go find the ones who have gone before you.
You are free to leave me now, free to let your spirit soar.
I pray I will find comfort in my memories...
In the dark and lonely days ahead
I cannot say I will not miss you,
I cannot say I will not cry,
For only my tears can heal my broken heart.
But I promise you this...
as long as I live...You will live
Alive in my mind, forever in my heart
And this will be my greatest gift...
Sending you away
It is the measure of my unconditional love...
For only the greatest love can say
“Goodbye, go find the Rainbow Bridge
and yes, we'll meet again.
Loving you has been the greatest gift of all.”
