I Made A List Today
Over The Rainbow Bridge
Of All My Favorite Things To Do With You
Like Our Many Talks,
And Walks Around The Blocks,
Loosing My Mind When Someone Knocks,
Or The Things I'd Get Into
...But My Favorite Thing Of All...
Is Just Being Next To You
And Knowing My Love Is True
I like the idea of our pets looking down on us from the Rainbow Bridge and reflecting on our time together. Going through the favorite things we did together, and all the love and nurturing care we provided. It's easy to overlook that now, in sorrow, so let's take a moment today to remember the ways we made each other happy.
Join us if you'd like to talk and share or just listen to the stories about the constant companionship they used to provide and that we miss so much.
If you can't, share or write about a memory of them with someone you love.
What were your favorite things to do together? Let's make a list of 5 or more activities that they loved. How much did they love them? Did they get excited before? For instance, if I even uttered the word "walk" in a normal sentence, Brody would wake up from a dead sleep and look at me with excited eyes. Let's spend a few minutes dwelling in our favorite thing, really imaging it, then write for a few minutes.
