Where did my little one go?
Intense struggling one moment, gone the next.
An empty body lies there,
My sweet one gratefully freed her Self.
Covered now with a clean brown towel,
Lying on her soft oversized cushion,
I drag the bed to my room,
Our pack together, our last night.
God never made this world of impermanence.
I am assured repeatedly Source loves us.
Would a caring God create a world of immeasurable pain and loss,
Where we lose everything we love?
No, my Creator is never cruel,
Eternal Gentleness, Eternal Life
Our Source is pure Joy and Love.
Chichi is the brindled Chihuahua mix. She arrived in my life March 5th, 2010 from a shelter. When I bent down to connect with her for the first time I was surprised with a french-kiss and she was obviously destined to be mine! I realized quickly this little lover greeted most people in her intimate fashion. Foxee arrived six months later to provide Chichi a companion when I was working in the prenatal clinic or was serving overnight at the medical center. I hadn’t suspected July 4th, 2017 would be her independence day from an ailing body. She departed 11:28pm.
