I am okay….
Here is what happened….
I wasn’t feeling very well. I went to see Dr. Mary in this very nice room. We all talked for awhile. Hugs and kisses were given and I love you was said many times. Dr. Mary gave me a shot to make me sleepy. Beth and Mike hugged me. I could feel the love and that made me feel safe. They gave me another shot….
Beth and Mike were crying….
I heard Beth say “I love you, Remington”
and Mike said
“I love you….goodnight, Sweet Prince”….
I felt them kiss me and I went to sleep.
When I woke up I was in this beautiful winter wonderland. Two Newfoundland’s and a cat came running to me. It was my kitty sister, Keisha, and the others told me their names were Taylor and Samuel. I hugged Keisha and told her how happy I was to see her. The Newfoundland’s said they use to live with Mike and Beth too. We talked a long time and they explained where I was. They said this was called Rainbow Bridge. It is a place we come to wait for our human loved ones to come and get us so we can all be together. They said most people think the Rainbow Bridge is sunshine and green grass but not everyone knows that there are two parts to the Rainbow Bridge. One with sunshine and green grass to play in and the other is a beautiful winter wonderland with soft snow to play in. I can go to either one….it is very nice.
Keisha said she wanted to go to
the sunny side and find a
nice sun puddle to lay in and
she would be waiting for me
when I was finished playing in the snow.
Now I bet you are asking how I can be writing this….
I was looking around and this angel appeared. We talked a long time and I told her all about my family and friends and how worried everyone must be. I told her about my blog and how I would love to say a final goodbye to everyone. So she took me to this room and said it was not a standard procedure but she would make an exception this one time….
So my friends, here it is….please know that I AM okay. I feel GREAT, no pain at all! I will miss seeing you everyday. I will remember all the fun we had together. And to my Sweet Sasha, my girlfriend, never forget how special you are to me.
AND that I love you….to the moon and back.
My family, I love you
and will miss you with all of my heart.
I will miss all of the hugs
and kisses that made me feel so special.
I will miss my walks with Bailey
and playing with Trevor.
I will miss Mike taking care of me (you always took the time to make sure I was as healthy as I could be), cuddling on the couch every morning and playing games like “Toes, toes, I got toes….” And the all time favorite “come and get your glove from me”
they were so much fun….
and Beth….what can I say….
I will miss being with you everyday doing what we always do….dancing the polka with you in the morning, having lunch, listening to the radio, feeding the birds, going for long walks, taking our daily drive around town so I could hang my head out the window to see everyone, talking, laughing and playing football, photo shoots and just being together….for it was you who I spent most of my time with….just know I will miss you very much.
I learned so many things during my life….maybe what I learned could help you out sometime….
Always think good thoughts, they make you happy….bad thoughts just make you sad
Be nice to others and smile a lot….don’t hold grudges and frown, it makes for an unhappy life
Be kind to all creatures....for they all need to be loved
Play, dance and do things that bring joy to your life….
you need to make the most of the time you have….
so why not make that time the happiest you can
Relax, don’t worry so much,
don’t ever go to bed angry,
always say your prayers and
trust in God for He takes care of His children.
I hope you will think of me once in awhile and smile…. when you look at a bright full moon or when the snow is falling lightly on the ground OR when the Vikings or Packers are playing a great football game. Please know that you will be in my thoughts….I will think of you often and yes, my friends, I will be smiling.
I have to go now. Know that I am at the Rainbow Bridge waiting….take your time….there is no hurry….God will let you know when it’s your time.
Thank you for letting me be a part of your life and know that I love you….
Until we meet again, my friends –
