Turn, turn, turn

“To every thing, turn, turn, turn, there is a season, turn, turn, turn. A time to be born, a time to die.”  Pete Seeger wrote the song, Ecclesiastes gave him the lyrics.

Life is turning. My dog Coco will be transitioning tomorrow as I hold him. It is his season. A life well lived, and a life to be celebrated, he has been a source of unconditional love and never-ending enthusiasm for the tiniest joys of life. He has been constant, and loyal and hilarious. I can’t even imagine the last 13 1/2 years of our lives without him – can’t imagine! What a gift, what depth of joy, sweetness and beauty he has provided. The otherworld is so lucky to get this boy tomorrow.

    It is so kind of you to take time to write in the midst of this. I am so grateful to be included in this time for you, so that prayers will go up for both of you. My brother had to watch this happen w a beloved dog earlier this year. We at the sidelines hope our love and empathy help.

    Dearest Tayria:

    I will hold you and your dog in my prayers today and tomorrow. I had to release my beloved cat Moonbeam on June 21, 2009 and I know how hard it is to make this decision. But I know you are doing the right thing. Knowing he is free, strong, and healthy again will bring you joy, and you will be able to feel him. He will always be with you.

    Did you ever read the poem “The Rainbow Bridge”? Here is the link. It’s about where our pets go when they journey to the other world. http://rainbowbridge.catsplay.com/
