To all our special mites who need a hug today

A hug is something special
A hug can give such joy
A hug can bring a little smile
To every girl and boy
A hug can say a thousand words
Without a single spoken one
A hug can put things right again
When everything seems wrong
A hug can be a lovely thing
It doesn't have to contain a touch
A hug can be on paper
The word 'hug' just means so much
So I'm sending you a special hug
Not physical, it's true
But this hug is sent to let you know
we think the world of you
Nkulu

I am a free spirit...Either admire me from the ground. Or fly with me...But don't ever try to cage me

Things will get better

Life can be unfair to us, we want to run and hide
It's times like these you need a friend, to be right by your side
We all have hurt and loneliness, we sometimes look away
We try to hide these aweful thoughts, each morning of each day

We need to look within ourselves, and take the good inside
As this will help us through these times, our dignity and pride
Each day will help to heal the heart, we need to take things slow
And just remember each of us, our kindness we must show

People tend to hurt us, with reasons so unclear
We cry and sob and feel alone, we long for someone near
We seem so lost and frightened, the ache inside is real
We sometimes want to look above, and humble as we kneel

So take the good inside, and take things day by day
Things will get better, as we move, along lifes weary way
We all are special dont forget, we need this to believe
That one day things will shine for us, just close your eyes and dream

:k Grannyb....keeping you in our Prayers. :pray: Will miss Sam's licks a lot. :(

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. Her bright eyes are intent. Her eager body quivers. Suddenly she begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, her legs carrying her 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...."

:k grannyb no words can describe how sorry I am to hear about little Sam, all I do know is that she is in doggie heaven chasing butterflies and is a happy little girl

So sad that we have to say goodbye to our doggie kids, why can't they live with us forever

Thinking of you and keeping you in my prayers

Love Carol :k :k :k :k :k
