On days like today, I do my best to not dwell on the sadness of having lost furry, feathered, and other friends who have gained their angel wings. Rather, I try to focus on the wonderful memories all of my angels have gifted me throughout the years. I am lucky to have shared my entire life with furry friends, feathered friends, and even friends of the aquatic sort. Needless to say, the memories are many.
Today, I remember my dear angel Rosie, who was my beautiful calico companion for 21 years.
I most certainly also remember Rosie's angel brother, that being the handsome and sweet tuxedo Sammy. I remember my angelic childhood pups, Banjo and Shellie, who would play with me and entertain me for hours on end. I remember my childhood feathered friends, Pippin, Robin, and Sweetpea. And of course I also remember my aquatic angels, such as Lieutenant Legs and Oscar.
Though I sometimes cannot help but feel sadness that some of my dearest friends have made the journey to the Rainbow Bridge, I will forever be grateful for the unconditional love and memories they gifted me. I will forever remember them. I will forever love them.
We are thinking of all of you who are remembering your sweet angels today and every day. Purrs, woofs, and prayers to you all.
Did you know?
Did you know that the concept of the Rainbow Bridge not only stems back to poems from the 1980s and 1990s, but also way back to Norse mythology? In Norse mythology, there is a flaming rainbow bridge called Bifrӧst. It is said in the myths that the Bifrӧst rainbow bridge spanned from Midgard (Earth) to Asgard (the land of the gods). This is somewhat similar to the concept of the Rainbow Bridge pet owners know these days, so perhaps the poetry and other stories surrounding it were in part inspired by Norse mythology.
Purrs to you on this day of remembrance.
It is always good to have special memories of our kitties. We do remember Rosie and miss her. Have a great day.
Our friends give us so much in the short time they are here. Their unconditional love and memories they give us will remain for a lifetime, even when our friends have gone ahead of us.
There is always so much joy when our animal friends live with us, that we, like addicts, want more, more, more and never want to lose. When we do, the hole is dire, painful, and absolutely world-shaking. Hugs and purrs on this Remembrance Day.
There have been so many precious little ones that have gone to the bridge. I miss them all.
Have a blessed Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day. ♥
Sending purrs and hugs on this special day.
Sending you hugs as you remember your Angels.....we miss our sweet companions but feel them always and forever in our hearts.
Love, Pam and Teddy
Some days are harder than others when we lose a loved one. May their memories bring you only joy that they were in your life.
Beautiful post to remember your angels. I love the photo of Angel Rosie and the drawing. And I did not know that the rainbow bridge was first mentioned so long ago.
Purrs to you today as you remember your precious Rosie. Even though we never met, I feel like I knew her thanks to reading your beautiful memories of her.
This is beautiful, Lorianne. Sending you love and gentle purrs as you remember the special loving bind you had with Rosie and your other beloved angels.
That is a stunning photo of your beloved, Rosie. We did not know about the Rainbow Bridge in Norse mythology. Thank you for sharing that. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer
