~ We who choose to surround ourselves with lives even more temporary than our own live within a fragile circle, easily and often breached. Unable to accept its awful gaps, we still would live no other way.
We cherish memory as the only certain immortality, never fully understanding the necessary plan. ~ Irving Townsend
This is my boy’s first Gotcha Day where he is no longer with me in his soft, physical doggie form, as we approach a year since he passed away. We met through Reiki and he left his body receiving Reiki and surrounded by love.
Realising how fragile this circle can be enables me to appreciate all the wonderful times spent with my dogs, my best friends. I am truly grateful for all the years we do share and I appreciate all the moments we have together, as we share a wonderful love and soul connection.
I have one heartfelt request for anyone reading this … please make sure you have some lovely, clear photos (and video perhaps) of your animal family members that you will treasure always. One thing I can tell you, after having to say ‘goodbye for now’ to a number of my beloved dogs in recent years, is that I have never sat with my grief and thought I have too many photos of them.
Take some photos yourself, or find someone to take them for you. I can’t speak for anyone else, but my photos of my beautiful dogs bring me such comfort when they are no longer around in earthly form. Although I do wish I could step into the photos to hold them once more.
I miss you, my loves,
