My dear dear friends here at petloss and to all of you that posted at Tweenys Ma post titled “A Prayer for Rusty’s Mom,” I’d like to personally extend a thank you that is filled with the sincerest amount of gratitude that comes from the very deepest part of my heart.
It is friends like all of you that will see me through this awful time. They say (whoever “they” are,) that wonderful things can be born out of tragedy, and when you’re in the midst of it, it doesn’t seem like that, but it’s true; like discovering what truly amazing friends I have. And in this case, friends I’ve never even met. Of course, I’m sure you understand it when I say I wish I didn’t have to make this discovery, but this is what life is right now for me. I truly thank my higher power for putting people in my circle that I know truly love and support me. I feel such an outpouring of love, one of which, without I would have surely died myself.
You honor me with all of your words of support and they touch my heart. My mom would be so pleased to know that my friends are here to lift me up when I stumble, to provide that soft shoulder in which to cry, or to simply provide an ear to listen. I know it would make her heart less heavy.
To Tweenys Ma (Anna), Katebock, Emptynow, Kelseylen, dogrispamela, mykittygirl, gruntsmomforever, nuggestsmom (Alana), heleny, mrmeowgy (Donna), goofygirlinva (Kelly), benniesmom, rena, georgann (& Christopher), godenboysmom (Jo), herbiesmom, maxsmom (Joanne), woowoowoo(Melissa), whiteeyelashes (Pami) & loudpurring. . . and all of us . . . . I know all of our hearts have been so broken and our sorrow is profound when we have to say goodbye to our very best friends as they leave for the rainbow bridge, but yet, each of you put your own grief aside to say a prayer for me and my family. It touches my heart that this kindness of strangers, who are going through their own profound pain, can reach out to comfort others.
It is this bond, this circle of support that I will be forever eternally grateful.
For those of us that sadly share this bond of losing our mother’s, I wish I had great words of wisdom, but I don’t, except to say, I understand every single sentiment that was written . . . “I wish I had more time,” “I will never be the same,” “I’ve never gotten over it,” etc. I too have the same feelings and many more.
I imagine that my dear sweet mom is now with my dad and Rusty and they are all watching over me, as I’m sure your loved ones watch over you.
To all of our loved ones that have gone before us . . . until we meet again . . . we love and miss you so.
With the most sincere thanks and gratitude –
Rusty’s Mom – Allison
Peace to all.
P.S. To whiteeyelashes (pami) – I haven’t had a chance to read through all of the posts, but I understand that the vermin that stole your babies ashes has been caught – The universe does indeed provide. Good luck and many hugs.
