Rainbow Bridge

March 19, 2011

Thank you, Jackie, for helping to get us through the worst days of our lives.

The Rainbow Bridge-Author Unknown

“By the edge of a woods, at the foot of a hill

Is a lush, green meadow where time stands still.

Where the friends of man and woman do run,

When their time on earth is over and done.

For here, between this world and the next,

Is a place where each beloved creature finds rest.

On this golden land, they wait and they play,

Till the Rainbow Bridge they cross over one day.

No more do they suffer, in pain or in sadness,

For here they are whole, their lives filled with gladness.

Their limbs are restored, their health renewed,

Their bodies have healed, with strength imbued.

They romp through the grass, without even a care,

Until one day they start, and sniff at the air.

All ears prick forward, eyes dart front and back,

Then all of a sudden, one breaks from the pack.

For just at that instant, their eyes have met;

Together again, both person and pet.

So they run to each other, these friends from long past,

The time of their parting is over at last.

The sadness they felt while they were apart,

Has turned into joy once more in each heart.

They embrace with a love that will last forever,

And then, side-by-side, they cross over… together.”



The Weekend

March 13, 2011

I had a relatively nice weekend with the girls. My youngest has decided lately to take up golf. We went out yesterday and played a round. She’s learning. For being an instructor’s daughter, she’s sort of raw. But at the same time, she’s not that bad either! It’s nice to see the smiles; especially when you know that you had a part in making them.
