I lost my wonderful dog Tasha on April 5th. In 2 days it will be 6 months. She was 11.
She was in a lot of pain. And my wife and I lovingly chose to help her ascend to the Rainbows Bridge. There really was no choice to make, it only seemed like there was a choice at the time. Losing her has been the toughest, most painful loss of my life.
A few days ago, a wise friend of mine shared a few sentences from the Winnie The Pooh children's book to help me find more acceptance and continue to move on as I must continue to do:
if there ever comes a day
when we can't be together,
keep me in your heart
i'll stay there foreverThe words and their advice are just so beautiful. The advice is so simple and to the point.
Reading these words, it feels like Tasha is speaking these 4 sentences out loud to me. That she is giving me this reassuring, loving, and practical advice.
It is like she is saying to me out loud: "It is OK. Just keep me in your heart now. Do not worry because I am with you at all times. Do this and I'll be with you forever."
