Happy Mothers Day From the Rainbow Bridge!!!
This is my mommy's second Mothers Day Without all of us....I am so grateful she has Ivy Joy and Luna Rose....I sometimes see the sadness in her eyes as I know she misses us so. I miss her too. So many of us have gone to the Bridge...sending extra healing sunshine to Auntie Eileen, Auntie Carol, Auntie Debbie, Auntie JoAnn, Auntie Wendy, Auntie Julie, and all our wonderful friends (unfortuntatley, there are too many to name personally) who have lost their "children" to the rainbow bridge....all your angels are surrounding you with love, sunshine and appreciation. We are celebrating each of you here....we are in your hearts.
We believe a mothers' love is unconditional. It is rare and uniquely special. Many women in the world don't have human children, yet give of themselves and their hearts as a mother would to a human child....we furbabies are always our mommy's "children" and because of that, we are lucky enough to have known unconditional love. Luna Rose and Ivy Joy you have the greatest mom ever!
My mommy always wanted human children and yet, her life is so blessed with all of us who have been her "children". she gives of herself to others as a mommy would give to her children. She is a "mother" in every sense of the word....all of you are.
We are so grateful our grandma is home and with us.....as she is our rock and inspiraiton. We are blessed. Please take time to tell all the moms in the world, thank you...
" Make it a habit to tell people thank you. To express your appreciation, sincerely and without the expectation of anything in return. Truly appreciate those around you, and you'll soon find many others around you. Truly appreciate life, and you'll find that you have more of it."
Thank you Mom....thank you Grandma....thank you everyone for your love.
Happy Mothers Day. May it be filled with Sunshine and love. We miss you so much!!
Our hearts are always connected by paws....

I want you to know you are my hero. I know 1-28-2013 is a bittersweet day for you....even more so, without us here with you.I know how much you miss us..we miss you, too. I am ever so grateful you have Ivy Joy and Luna Rose to share your heart with...I always told you to keep loving others as it is what you do...I am always watching over you....All of us are...CheyAnne, Sugar, Jazzi, CK, Blackie, Skeeter, Beamer, all your angles and angel friends. You are surrounded by angels every minute of ever day....you always said, "my angels were fur" and you are right, mommy, we do!
I know you never thought you would be getting more injections on the 28th....23 years after your accident.....just keep on keepin on, mommy!
Mommy, you always told me it iwas important to reflect one's journey and remember what makes you who you are today. I am doing that for you....You are an amazing lady and I admire you more than you know. I can't help but have mixed feelings either. We are all so happy you are with us, and yet so sad because of your continual pain and daily struggles. It's hard for me to imagine it has been 23 years since the careless drunk driver hit you and changed your life forever. The person you were, "died", and when you came back to us, we were so thankful.
This is like another birthday, mommy!!! I love birthdays!!! We are partying at the Bridge today!!! We have to celebrate our journeys and challenges....right, that's you taught me and I am reminding you to honor your journey and be proud of what you have accomplished.
I know as you face your continual health decline, you get scared. I know one day your body will fail you and you will not be able to walk again. Your future is so uncertain....but I believe you are never alone as you have helped so many with failing bodies, including me....there will be others to care for you and appreciate your mind and spirit.
We admire you tenacity and strength. I know I was not a part of your life then....and neither was my daddy, but if things would have been different, our paths may never have crossed. I am so thankful to have you for my mommy and so proud of all you do and who you are despite what you go through daily.
We know this day makes you sad, and yet grateful to be alive. It is a day of total reflection. That's okay. It is a bittersweet day and you are entitled to have these feelings..................if we could make you better we would, but want you to know, we think you are perfect just as you are....and despite what happens, we will always be by your side watching over you from above.
An extra special thank you to my angel sister Jazzi and my sisters in spirit at the bridge, CheyAnne and Sugar, who laid in your hospital bed and stayed by your side and helped you walk again. They watched you endure pain and stuggles unimagineable to many.... I am glad I could be a part of what and who you are now..............you will always be my hero...today, I say thank you for being alive and WALKING into my life and heart forever!!! Thank you for taking care of me as my body failed and helping me find peace at the Bridge…thank you for letting me be and loving me for who I am!!!
May you find your own strength and courage to face life's obstacles and appreciate and celebrate the rewards.
Celebrating and honoring you, mommy.

Happy Birthday/Got'cha Day Sissy,
On 12-29-2000, 12 years ago, you came into our lives and have filled our hearts with unconditional love. You have taught us so much....you are our hearts....and our special Golden Angel always. Our first and only golden girl...We miss you so much.
As a tribute to the wonderful love you have given us....we want to feature our tail of devotion to you again. It is so important for others to know what an incredible gift you have given us all....Thank you for your love....so glad we found and rescued each other....wish our time together could have last forever...but I know you are not gone, but rather...gone ahead.
Our tail of Devotion to You...
"In October 2000, my beloved pet had died. She was 16 years old. I lost my other beloved pet three years prior. Although I still had my two cats, the house seemed so empty, but not as empty as my heart felt. My two girls had been with me through so much in my life and the emptiness and sadness I felt was overwhelming. I decided I was not going to get another dog, I was not ready.
I have always been a big animal rescuer, and I am sure I always will be...but this animal rescue was different. One morning while I was working, I saw this skinny, injured, scared dog in the distance. She was in a field and too scared to come to me. I left her some food and water. Although I couldn't see the dog very well, she haunted my thoughts during the day...there was something about her. When I left work I went back, I didn't find her. I told my family about her when I got home. I felt in my heart I needed to try and gain this dog's trust and get her the help she needed. Since I am physcially limited, I asked a nurse at work to help me get the dog...each day we left her food and water and talked to her from across the field...she was so scared. On Dec 29, 2000...I knew I had to get her...the big ice storm was coming and she would not survive it. When I pulled up in the parking lot at work, my heart stopped...the nurse had her arms around this incredibly scared, cold, injured, and beautifully spirited dog........our eyes meet. I opened my car door and cranked on the heat. She laid in the back seat of my car and fell asleep. I called my husband to come to my work and get the dog...I made arrangements for her to go immediately to the vet. I feared her condition was so bad, she would have to be euthanized, but I reminded myself...I was helping her. If she was going to be okay, I knew I could find her a forever home.
My husband called and said on the long drive to the vet, this dog got up in the back seat and gently put her paw on my shoulder..."it was like she was telling me something." And she was....she knew right then, I needed her, as much as she needed me. That inured frail paw said, "tell her fur angels sent me....we need each other."
The vet was able to save her and she came to live with us...she filled an incredible void in my heart and I made her feel loved and safe. She taught me that loving again is worth the pain of losing them in the end. It is so amazing to see her loyalty and devotion to the family. For example, one time I fell and she immediately laid across me to protect me until help arrived. She would give her life for her family...her heart is forever ours, as well.
We all love this amazing dog...she is more than a dog, she is our companion who loves unconditionally. She acts as if she is the lucky one, but we really are. She knew I needed her to heal my heart before I did. We are so glad we became her forever family.
YOU ARE AMAZING...AND THE BEST GIFT EVER...TODAY AND EVERY DAY WE CELEBRATE YOU. LOVE, MOMMY, DADDY, JAZZI Sunshine Angel, CK Angel, Lil' Blackie Angel, Luna Rose and Ivy Joy
