First Dream

Oh my Mattie, waking up again without you once again, and finding it harder to do every day.. I had my first dream about you last night .. wish that had comforted me instead of makes me yearn for you and miss you even more .. Feeling so guilty this morning for every thought, and everything I did and didn't do. I don't know what I'm going to do without her .. she was my shadow, the ever presence in my life each second of the day.. heart is so heavy and breaking this morning ... I know she is safe and healthy, but I miss her so bad ... I often think about this quote from Little Women... "If life is often as hard as this, I don't see how we ever shall get through it".. I find myself worrying what the next loss will be .. Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers today, as I will all of you that are grieving too ..

Your Mattie was letting you know that she is ok now and she wants you to always hold on to the memories you had with her. My beloved Rhett also appeared in my dream right after his passing and even though I missed him more than ever, It also provided me comfort to know that he is ok was still watching over us. Your heart is hurting for Mattie and she also is trying to give you comfort. You will be in our prayers during this most difficult time.

Mattie is whole again and beginning her eternal life. I know how much you miss her and in time her memories will bring a smile through the tears.

So sorry, I understand completely. The days to come are hard, tough.... Days upon days make it easier to bear, and someday you will begin to focus more on all of the wonderful memories, instead of only loss. They take a so much away when they leave, but they don't intend it that way. I think they intended for our hearts to grow bigger in their loss, broken hearts grow bigger....xoxo

There are some relationships in life that change the way you see the world. If you happen upon them--you will never forget. Buddy 10-5-2003-10-30-2011: My heart dog.

So, so sorry for your pain; and as most of us know, you will have some difficult days ahead. The pain is just so raw in the beginning, it seems like you will never get through it. I and many others have been there, and understand completely. But what you are feeling is very normal (though heartbreaking!), and you must go through it to heal. I'm still missing my Buddy after 13 months. It has gotten easier in some ways, but the longing for him comes in waves, and the hurt is still there. To help keep things in perspective, I have to remind myself that Buddy is no longer in pain, and someday I will join him. Yesterday, my neighbor lost her heart dog, a little apricot colored poodle named Blaze (15 yrs). She is heartbroken, and so sad. In time I think she may try to adopt an older dog from the shelter (Blaze was a 9yr old shelter dog when she got him). So all I can do is try to console her, and tell her I'm sure my Buddy was waiting at the Bridge when little Blaze arrived. I don't believe their passing is the end..rather the beginning of eternity, and we will join them too someday. Wishing you hugs and comfort.
