The most loved and the most loving family member
When I was very young my parents found a dog and brought him home. He was part terrier and cocker spaniel; we loved this little dog and “Whiskers” became our hero, our best friend, our out in the rain, sleet, snow and hail buddy. Wherever we went, he went. No need to tell about the time he and I got into a box of fresh fried chicken? And that time we got sick headaches from eating ice cream too fast? And certainly not about that year we dressed him up as a vampire for Halloween so we’d collect more candy? Yes, we were shameless.
Eventually “Whiskers” passed on which brings me to the point of this blog. He was just like a person to me. In fact he was the most loved, and the most-loving, family member. What would I do without him?
One day not long after “Whiskers” death I was driving through the countryside and thought I saw him running with children through a field of flowers. I was so sure; I pulled my car over, and watched this dog for quite a while. Then it dawned on me: if I were the energy or essence of “Whiskers” I would want to come back and have more children to enjoy my life with! In that instant I knew that just because he was gone from my sight, did not mean he was gone forever. I wanted him to live with children. I wanted him to have the best life he could. He would want the same for me. He would want the same for me.
Post Script: D.S. my love and quiet meditations offer strength and positive thoughts to you and your loved ones. Embrace the energy or essence of what your loved one gave you and share it with others in your own way, in your own time. My warm wishes to you, dcrelief
