I'd like to share a photo of the little sculpture I made of Banjo the day he went to "sleep" . It strangely brought me comfort to make it. As I formed and smoothed the clay in my hands, it was as though I was stroking and holding my "baby" Banjo one last time.
I received the following message from Linda. The same Linda who commissioned Jennie to do the memorial photo for me of Banjo with Buddy seen in the previous post. I want to share this "blessing" with you. Here it is:
Do you remember last night before I signed off for the evening that it was about to rain? Well it did rain. I stood in the foyer of the office with 2 other co-workers for maybe 15 minutes waiting for the rain to let up enough before making a dash to the parking lot to my truck. You could tell the storm was passing. As I was about to reach my truck, the other lady I was walking with said "Oh look! A rainbow!"
What I saw was a complete rainbow. Not a partial one, but all 180 degrees. Full color from start to finish. I have never seen a completely perfect rainbow like this before in all my life. There was always "something missing" about it. Not this time.

It wasn't a very big rain, but then Banjo isn't a very big cat! I'd like to think this desperately needed rain with it's perfect rainbow signature was a little "thank you" from Banjo "signed off on" by God. It made me feel really, really good!
It was the Rainbow Bridge I saw yesterday, of that I am sure! The rain was a gift. And it was merely God's way of reassuring me that Banjo will be there waiting for you--that's why I got to see it--to show me that the circle is finished and Banjo is back home--that everything is as it should be. It means it's time to move forward.

I've seen a perfect rainbow! I've seen the Rainbow Bridge. I shall cherish it because of the love I know comes with it.
Thank you so much, Linda, for sending me this wonderful email...I just had to share it. Bless your heart...button

  2. your sculpture is so amazing .. and thanks for sharing this story.

  3. You are so very talented and what a great keepsake.

  4. Here you go making me cry again! I have a similar story about my ferret. He passed in the fall and I buried him in the back yard. The following spring a single beautiful flower sprouted in front of the headstone I had made. It comes back every year. I didn't plant it, and I haven't seen another like it around here. Ziggy always did like flowers though. I take it as a sign that he's up there frolicking around and I'll see him again.
    BTW, you write a really good blog!

  5. Awwww! Hugs! I had to allow my doggie, Beauty, to go to Rainbow Bridge this past february and I still grieve for her. God's love and comfort to you.
