"Waiting At The Rainbow Bridge"

My Post today is for my Dear Friend Justine. First I want to Post the Poem "Rainbow Bridge" for anyone that may not have ever read it. My first time was when I had to have one of my Dear Furbabies put to sleep many years ago. My vet sent me a sympathy card with this poem inside.

Rainbow Bridge

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

Tonight I ran across a post a Lady put on a site I was looking through. I hope this Lovely Woman does not mind if I share this with all of you. I hope it is as comforting to all of you whom has ever lost a dearly loved Pet as it has been for me.

I saw the Bridge

A true experience as posted by Sharry Daniels

We had to have Pismo put to sleep on Nov. 6, 1993. He was an 18 year old, 6 pound yorkie. Most of Pizzy's life I was sick and confined to the house. He stayed with me every min. of every day. On days when life didn't seem worth living his unconditional love for me kept me alive. I know he was a gift from God. Without that funny little mutt I wouldn't be here today.

By the time I got better Pizzy was old and sick. Now it was my turn to stay with him. I should have let him go before I did, but I couldn't. He was so much a part of me, that having him put to sleep was almost like committing suicide. BUT I DID IT!!! It was horrible. I can't even think about it. Pizzy was gone and I never had my heart hurt so bad. I didn't know where to go or what to do. Everything reminded me of him. For 2 days my husband and I sat in shopping centers and in the car in shopping center parking lots and cried and cried and cried. All I could think of is where do dogs go? Is there a place for animals or is my Pizzy in that cold ground in our yard? Whose taking care of him? Where is he? Where's my Pizzy?

On Nov. 8, two days after he had died, my husband and I were sitting in the car in the Hill's Shopping Center parking lot. It was four o'clock in the afternoon. The sky was bright blue without a cloud anywhere. It had not rained all day and again there was not even a cloud in the sky. We were facing west , looking toward the setting sun. I was sobbing and sobbing and screaming, "Please, God, please. Tell me where Pizzy is. Please, God, tell me! Where is my Pizzy! Where is he!!! All of a sudden my husband said, "Look Sharry, Look!!!! He was pointing to the sky and when I looked up I saw a perfect RAINBOW in that cloudless blue sky right next to the setting sun. At the time I didn't know about the rainbow bridge, but at that moment I did know that God in His kindness was telling me that my Pizzy was somewhere over the rainbow and that he was okay.

About 5 months later my friend called me. She was all excited and told me to read the article in Dear Abby. I read it and just couldn't believe it. I read about the meadow and the RAINBOW and my sick dog wasn't sick anymore and he had water and food and he was playing and best of all I WOULD SEE HIM AGAIN. I am a skeptic and if I had just seen the article, I would have had doubts, but I SAW THE RAINBOW BRIDGE. I know it's real.

Up until last week I thought my husband and I were the only ones who believed the meadow and the bridge really exist and take comfort in its existence. Then I accidentally stumbled onto this bulletin board. I was and am still amazed, but so grateful that we share this hope with so many others. I never write on BB, and I wasn't going to this time either, because it's so hard for me to put my feelings into words. But I really feel that God would want me to share this with you guys in case there's someone out there who is a skeptic and needs a little extra bit of proof that God does have a special place for your pet to be cared for until you go to pick him up and cross the bridge together, never again to be separated. 

As I leave you with your tears, I close, tearfully myself, as I say quietly, Until I see you  again My Beloveds Noisy, Spud, Toesy, Goofy, Daisy Mae, and Max, God promises you'll be there waiting for me someday to Cross The Bridge Together.

Did I Really Say That Sunday Scramble

 It is that time of the week  once again to join Justine in her Sunday Scramble. Come and join us if you like, I know Justine would love to have you.

I've had a great revelation today. One I haven't wanted to admit, but have know for a very long time now. "I'm one very lazy assed bitch" Now with that said, if I weren't so lazy my ass would not be so big and if my ass as well as the rest of me wasn't so big I'd feel better and I wouldn't be such a bitch. Well maybe not of that last part is true. I'll never be skinny and to some I am and will always be a bitch. But those who love me love me dearly and the rest can go to hell.... So now that I have told you who I really am PLEASE LOVE ME!!!  Okay on to other things..
I have got to get busy and clean out my house... I am a horder!! But what I really want to do is get rid of other peeps stuff. Its in my way and I need more room for stuff I want. My redo of my front bedroom is still not finished, oh hell it's not even started. I almost had the room cleared out before Christmas, but I needed room to put the Christmas Tree so I moved all kinds of  shit in there to get it out of the way. Its been to rainy and snowy and wet to get out to the storage building (good excuse) but now I must over come and get it cleared out. I bought more paint samples this week ( 8,9,10,11, and 12) I just can't find the right color I want. I want it to be between green and blue, not minty, soft but  bold, light reflecting and relaxing. It now has twelve 3X3 foot squares of different colors and I just can't decide if any of them match my criteria. I plan for the room to be a beachy cottagey bedroom without being to themey...I need to think less and do more. Maybe I'll actually get started on it this week. I'll be sure to get before and during and after pics if any of you live long enough to see it from start to finish. After I do this room I want to do the back bedroom, then the bathroom and my master bedroom and the living room then the kitchen. Hey... I could live to be 500 years old!!
At the risk of really pissing my sweet hubby off to the point of the threat of divorce, I did a spontaneous thing. I CUT MY HAIR... Thats right, I went and had it all chopped off. I've worn my hair long for 31 years and have wanted to cut it for most of those 31 years... I DID IT... and I think  I really like it. I decided that long mop made me look way older than I should look. What do ya think?
Before the New Look,,,
Me and my daughter, Melaney.
Now me after the Big Cut..
 Me, With a Whole New Look
Its so much easier to keep and now that I've lived with it for nearly a week, I really do like it. I can't do anything to change the face but I think I'll keep the cut for a while:)

Went to the Sweetwater Rattle Snake Round Up yesterday. The Texas town of Sweetwater has a yearly festival where rattlesnakes are caught, milked, killed and eaten. 
 Yes those are all rattle snakes on the floor
I have never in my life seen so many people in one little spot!! When I say it was shoulder to shoulder I mean that quite literally. 

Walking through the display buildings, trying to look at all the goodies for sale, you were touching, I mean really touching everyone you tried to pass. Every exhibit and vendor had lines that were miles long. And not that I could see very much, after all I'm only 5' 2", I found absolutely nothing I could not live without. I saw one cute wallet, a cute purse, a precious dress for Prissy, and an adorable little kidney shaped green garden bench. I got the best funnel cake I have ever gotten, That sucker was 2" thick. OUHHHH it was soooo good. But what I got the most  was a very painful back and achey thighs. We did way too much walking for the first time out after a long winter of sitting on the couch. The Flea Market was a bust, with the exception on one really cute little metal  childs table and chairs set. But the weather was beautiful, warm and sunny with no wind. What a marvelous day to be out. We had a very enjoyable day. As for those Rattle Snakes, I always stay out of that building least I would have nightmares for days at the site of that many snakes in one place. My opinion of a snake is the best ones are extinct ones. They should all be extinct as should spiders and scorpions. I know some one may object to my opinion but the above mentioned if they don't hurt me they will make me hurt myself. No Really hurt myself badly.
Yall have a fabulous week and I'll see ya again next week TaTa

 It's time once again for Justines  Sunday Scramble . If you haven't joined her before go ahead and join her today, She'd love to have you. Post up and Link up to Justine and let us hear what kind of Scrambles you've had this week...

Oh what a week! I started off this week with a headache from hell. Well, it was my own fault. We went out to  lunch with some friends and after eating a very tasty platter of fried catfish with all the fixings, we exited the restaurant and preceded to say our goodbyes out front...This is were the calamity began. I turn from saying all the goodbyes, great to see ya's, and let's do it agains just in time to run smack dab into a 2x6, actually four of them, hanging out of the back of a pickup parked in front of the restaurant. My hands were flying, since I can't talk with out the use of my arms and hands flailing about with every word, which caused me to break 3 fingernails into a quick and my poor forehead had a dent in the middle of it the size of a #2 pencil about four inches long.. My Sweet Hubby turned to look and saw me just standing there in a daze and came running. Now here is a good understanding of how hard my head hit those boards, My Sweet Hubby can't hear a freight train going down the track if he's stopped in front of it. I'm sure it could be heard for miles away. The first thing I thought to do was look to see if it had a red flag attached, as that is the law for anything hanging over so many inches out of the back of a pickup or trailer. No red flag, like that would have kept me from running into it since the eyes in the back of my head I have not used since my children left home. So, I could sue, Right???   NO... then I would have to admit to the world the lack of grace and composure I pretend to have. I couldn't tell the world how stupid I really am after all they already suspect it, lets not confirm the obvious.
 By Tuesday, the snow was back and the yard was once again beautiful with about four inches of lovely white, glistening powdery snow covering every surface.

Ahhh, So deceiving, because under that lovelyness was an inch of solid ICE.. EKKKKEKKKK or should I have said it was screaming WRECKWRECKWRECK. My daughter and I went to town that night, roads looking fairly clear by that time, and suddenly we are driving backwards down the middle of the road, then forward again and backward again, before we finally came to a sudden stop.... So Thankful no other vehicle was involved. My nerves a bit out of sorts now and another headache attacks me like a bear in a blizzard.
Went to Dr. on Wednesday to get my shots in my lower back. This in-tales being put to sleep and acting a fool for the next few hours until the antistesia wears off. My Dear Sweet Daughter In Law always takes me and never tells a soul how silly I act or breaths a word of what I may say. God Love Her, I sure do.

By night fall, the top of my head is about to explode. I get the mother of all headaches after having antistitic that will last for the next two days.... Worth it???? Hell yess, I can to to Wal Mart, Lowes and Home Depot all three and walk around without having to ride around on the little drivey thingy shopping cart. Freedom aint free, there is always a price to pay.

Saturday, Hubby went out of town to spend the day with his son, and I spent the day doing nothing. Laid around, slept late, played on Facebook, watched the food channel and hung out with my Sweet Daughter IN Law... Smoked to much and had a smoking headache the next morning that made me want to cuss... So here it is Sunday, again, and the notorious HEADACHE, is starting another week hanging around my house... I think I'll lock the doors and send it on down the road, It's just not welcome here anymore
