Princess' Rainbow message to me April 14, 2007
Twelve days after Princess passed to the bridge, I had to go out of state on business. I was so distrought and devasted that I had to have my husband go with me to drive. On our way home, I happened to glance out the window and saw the biggest, most brilliant complete (end-to-end) rainbow I have ever seen. It was luminescent, unlike anything I had ever seen before. This picture was taken on my cell phone after we could find a place to pull over and does not do it justice but I had to post it. I know it was Princess telling me she was well and happy. She put that brilliant glow into it to make me understand that it was a mesage to me not just another rainbow. I have had only 2 brief glimpses of her lasting only a second or two (in that time when you are just waking up) and this one message. I know that when I am able to quiet my mind and get passed my tremendous grief that I will see and feel her more. It is just so very hard even now, over 3 months after she passed. I would love to hear from anyone else who has experienced a special thought, vision or message such as this.
PRINCESS REPAYS A DEBT
In May of 2006 when Princess had her terrible reaction to chemo and was slowly slipping away from me a number of animals came through the emergency clinic and then the WSU veterinary hospital. One or two that had been expected to make it were ultimately lost and my Princess was given a reprieve and came home with me. I did not realize it at the time but those dear friends undoubtedly helped make it possible for Princess stay with me. Fast forward to the night we took Princess to the emergency clinic 10 months later. While we were there, a lady brought in a chow that looked really bad. It had some kind of unusual liver problem and was not expected to live. The woman was extremely distraught and I thought how sad, here I will be taking my Princess home anytime now and she will lose her friend. As the hours passed, Princess got much worse and the reports for the chow were getting inexplicably better (per the vet.) A risky surgery had come out well and the dog was expected to go home shortly. Not long afterwards I was allowed into the back room to see Princess. She did not have the strength to wag her tail or offer any sort of greeting, which was so important to her. I knew then that she would not be coming home with me again. I also know that Princess offered the last bits of her strength and healing auora to that chow. Princess was tired and I believe with all my heart that she was giving back for the strength she was given previously that allowed her to stay with me those extra 10 months. I have cried buckets reliving that story and as I recounted it it made me realize more than ever that it was Princess who helped that chow just as the pets at the clinics helped her. Our wonderful companions are so much stronger, wiser and selfless than most humans. How blessed I was to have this marvelous being share my life.
A snowy birthday from Princess!
My first birthday without my Princess, there was a chance of snow, someting that had never happened before that early in the season. Mid-morning, the snow began to fall, HUGE flakes that drifted down in flurries. I could barely stand watching it. But my son told me that I should think of it as a birthday gift from Princess. So I tried to do so and went out to take a picture of it. By evening the snow turned to rain and by the following day it was all gone. It had to be from Princess~thank you Baby Girl I love you and miss you so much.
My Mother's Day gift. Princess beach rainbow.
Here on our little island, twice a year, an island-wide mixed media art show and sale is held. One of the venues is next door to our house. Each year we visit with our neighbor and look over the artwork. When I walked in the door this year the first thing I saw was a picture of a rainbow which was taken just around the corner from Princess's favorite beach. Finances are tight but I knew the minute I saw it that I really wanted that picture to hang by Princess's portrait. So I made the decision that it would be a gift to myself this Mother's Day. My girl still guides me and visits my heart and soul.
