Dear Debi, I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. Pooh knows how you love him, and he knows that being there was just more than you could handle. He understands, and there is nothing to forgive as far as he is concerned. He did understand. You have probably already received signs that were so subtle you didn't catch them. After we said goodbye to T.J. (my profile picture kitty), we got a sign within the first hour. It was very subtle, and some people would argue that it wasn't a sign at all, but I believe that when we see it as a sign, it is. Signs can be as subtle as: hearing a song with meaningful lyrics just when you need it most; seeing butterflies, birds, dragonflies, or other wildlife when you need them; aromas, sounds, or other sensory perceptions that suddenly come to you; and other things that just bring you comfort or a sense of peace, even if only for a split second. Even the image of certain flowers can be signs. if you have a wonderful dream of Pooh, and you awaken feeling as if you were just with him, you were. I call those "dream visits." I always say that you just know the difference between a regular dream and a dream visit. You know it in your heart and no one can take it away from you. Your signs will come, and sooner or later, you will know when they do. Even finding this site when you needed it most can be a sign, or receiving a reply at just the right time. Our Bridge Kids guide us to do things that we might not have done otherwise. Angels use us to help each other at the right moment. Signs are all around us. I hope you will soon find the smiles of gratitude for your life with Pooh to be coming to you more often. Yesterday was a really tough day for me. It was the two week marker for T.J. I know that he is fine, but I am the one who is hurting. I have faith that I will heal, and coming here to connect with others who understand is the best way I know to get my foothold on my own path to healing. I hope you will come back and tell us all about life with Pooh and all the joy and love you shared while he was with you physically. You and Angel Pooh are in my thoughts and prayers, and I'm sending virtual hugs to comfort you now.
My heart is battered and bruised, but I will not let it break. It holds such precious cargo, I must protect it now. (Susie Squillions)
