To Where You Are by Josh Groban

Who can say for certain
Maybe you're still here
I feel you all around me
Your memories so clear

Deep in the stillness
I can hear you speak
You're still an inspiration
Can it be
That you are mine
Forever love
And you are watching over me from up above

Fly me up to where you are
Beyond the distant star
I wish upon tonight
To see you smile
If only for awhile to know you're there
A breath away's not far
To where you are

Are you gently sleeping
Here inside my dream
And isn't faith believing
All power can't be seen

As my heart holds you
Just one beat away
I cherish all you gave me everyday
'Cause you are mine
Forever love
Watching me from up above

And I believe
That angels breathe
And that love will live on and never leave

Fly me up
To where you are
Beyond the distant star
I wish upon tonight
To see you smile
If only for awhile
To know you're there
A breath away's not far
To where you are

I know you're there
A breath away's not far
To where you are

 

A beautiful Christmas Bridge story from my friend Alfie

Thank you, ALFIE

Those who have lost their best friends or furbabies will hold this very dear!

As the midnight hour approaches on Christmas Eve, a tremendous celebration begins. If you listen closely you will hear the exuberant sound of Bridgekids preparing for the remarkable moment that comes but once a year.

Puppies romp through the tall green grass, chasing butterflies and rolling over and over until fits of giggles bring them to a tumbling stop. The volume increases as kittens, cats, tigers and lions purr in pure delight while the wings of snow white doves gently caress the air. The babbling brook that runs beneath Rainbow Bridge overflows onto the edge of mossy banks and fins of treasured aquatic life quiver in anticipation of this most joyous event.

Nestled in the midst of this happy choir of Bridgekids are the littlest angel tots staring in awe at the majestic Christmas tree adorned with flowing strands of angel hair. Effervescent, twinkling stars seesaw elegantly from the sky and land in glorious harmony upon the stoic limbs of Heaven's most perfect Christmas tree.

Swaying to and fro in nearby rocking chairs are grandmothers, grandfathers, parents, aunts, uncles and loved ones. The sound of their whispered lullabies permeate the air as they sing to tiny angel babies resting quietly in their arms.

Like magic the clock approaches midnight and a great stirring is heard in the distance. Each Bridgekid stops and listens, knowing the time is near, and they choose a fleecy cloud on which to snuggle. The roar of purrs drops to barely an audible hum, the babbling brook ripples hypnotically and the flutter of downy feathered wings fall silent. Heaven's spirited toddlers climb expectantly upon the laps of angels while babies coo in tranquil unison.

Amidst the warm glow of candle light which rises from the earth below, the arms of the Bridge Keeper envelop the heavens and into the precious hands of each child and in front of each animal a holy gift is placed. With grand exuberance the ribbons are removed and left to fly on a tender breeze where they dissolve into showers of angel dust. As the golden lids of these heavenly gifts are raised, an amazing aura fills the sky, reaching down to the very core of the earth.

Ascending from each and every box is the greatest gift of all…unending, unconditional, all-encompassing love. This blessed love gently wraps itself around the cherished souls of heaven, warming their hearts with beacons of radiant light and bringing forth from angels an exquisite chorus.

As the clock strikes midnight the distance between heaven and earth is vanished. It is at this very moment on Christmas Eve that the Bridge Keeper, His children, angels and Bridgekids send a message to their earthly loved ones on the wings of this unbridled love.

Listening carefully with an open heart we will hear the familiar voice of our own angel whisper softly into our ear their Christmas message... “Let me share with you this love of mine, always and forever. When you need me know that I am here. I have not left you for I am in your heart where I belong. Our love is eternal as is the brilliant glow of candlelight which illuminates the path to the heavens and Rainbow Bridge. I wait patiently as do you for our inevitable and glorious reunion. I Love you.

His Journey's Just Begun

Don't think of him as gone away-
his journey has just begun
life holds many facets
the Earth is only one

Just think of him as resting
from the sorrows and the tears
in a place of warmth and comfort
where there are no days and years

Think how he must be wishing
that we could know today
how nothing but our sadness
can really pass away

And think of him as living
In the hearts of those he touched
For nothing loved is ever lost-
And he was loved so much.

- Ellen Brenneman

I've been tagged by my friend CRITTER! I have to list seven things about myself and then tag seven of my friends.

1. I don’t sit like a normal cat. I sit up like a human, on my bee-hind!

2. I have a beautiful identical twin brother named Oingo.

3. I beat amazing odds all my life and lived to be 20 years old!

4. I once spent the night in mom’s tree. I don’t know why? It was a nice night and I suppose I felt like star gazing…

5. I liked to sit on mom’s shoulder as she drove back and forth from Santa Barbara to the Bay Area with me. She ALWAYS took me with her during college vacations.

6. I lost my sweet brother Oingo when he was just a kitten, and lived my life without other kitties until I was 14. I loved my new sisfur Chandon… eventually! I did dig my heels in and balk at the situation.

7. My very best friend at the Rainbow Bridge is BRANDON, the cutest Pekingese ever!

I'm tagging these seven friends:

A very special "tag"

*Looks up from what he is doing*

With a start, he realizes that TABBY has stopped by!! OMC…. Nervous butterflies… Hello, sweet Tabby. I, um…. I sort of brought you here under somewhat false pretenses. You see, I sent you the note that I’d tagged you and to read my diary. Well, I tagged you, but not in the typical Catster fashion. I…. er….. I tagged you with my heart, that is, I wanted to get you to visit my diary, for I have something I want to tell you.

I have been noticing that someone has been sending you anonymous rosies of admiration, for which you are very deserving. It seems that somepurr may be smitten with you, yet you’re a married lady? Or maybe you’re no longer married and that you and Jasper are forever friends? I understand that kind of love and respect; that simply makes you more beautiful, in my eyes… beautiful inside and out.

May I offer you a bouquet of DAISIES in friendship? I hope you like yellow; they are so sunny and bright!

I’m wondering, if you have time to stay for a bit, would you like to share a picnic lunch with me at my favorite spot down by the river? The BUTTERFLIES are dancing, the river is softly babbling, the sun is shining warmly and the sky is dotted with endless Rainbow Bridge Rainbows...

HEAVENLY RAINBOW
VIBRANT RAINBOW
GOSSAMER RAINBOW
RAINBOW
DOUBLE RAINBOW

Please.... take a look at my favorite place here at the Beautiful Bridge. I wanted to share it with you...

MY FAVORITE SPOT BY THE RIVER
MY SECRET WATERFALL


*Hums to himself, albeit a bit nervously, opens the PICNIC BASKET, fidgets and nearly drops the GRILLED SALMON. Sets out plates, piles two plates with AHI TUNA, GRILLED SALMON, CHICKEN KABOBS, CHOCOLATE MOUSSE and two glasses of THE BEST CHARDONNAY.

I hope you can join me for a bit. If not, I fully understand, for I have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

Tabby, I’m your secret admirer.

*Holds breath in anticipation of how Tabby will react*

 

She's happy! She hoped it was ME!!

I am dancing on the clouds and floating amidst the rainbows in pure angelic bliss! TABBY was elated with all of my secret admirer notes, and had HOPED that it was me!

Oh goodness.... the scary part is over MOL! I was hopelessly nervous putting together my surprise picnic for her. Tabby, sweetie, you are so worth pursuing, my beautiful soulmate!

*swoops up to the highest cloud, sprinkling Magic Dust and shouts to the world:*

I REALLY LOVE TABBY!

*swoops back to his beautiful picnic spot and settles back in with his sweet girl* *ta-tinnnggggss* wine glasses together with her, smiling, giddy, feeling love in his heart. I want to show this girl the world and I want her to know how very special she is, for she is such a deserving and beautiful lady, inside and out!

 

We California boys sure love our Ohio girls!

Teehee! My twin brofur Oingo shared a giggle with his beautiful wifey HAZEL yesterday. She brought up the fact that we California boys must have a thing for Ohio girls. (Oh, let me clarify; she DID say Minnesota boys; although our Earth family lives in MN we’re technically Cali boys, being that we lived our lives in CA) My darling sister in law Hazel is from Ohio, and ironically, so is my new luvpurr, TABBY! How pawsome is that! Great brothers and great minds think alike!

Oingo and Boingo together raise a toast to their lovely Ohio ladies, HAZEL and TABBY! There is definitely something mysterious, intriguing and altogether WONDERFUL about the two of you Ohio lovelies!
