Heaven Sent Blessing ~ Special Gift
We are heartbroken, crushed, missing you so; but take comfort in knowing your memory is being compassionately preserved. You are forever in our hearts, thoughts. Uniquely sweet, playful "Mr. Personality plus" ... you gave us such sweet memories, to last a lifetime, for eternity. We know you are finally at peace, healthy, well, happy again ...
playing on green grassy lawns covered in flowers, under huge beautiful trees with birds singing, near cool, calming springs, waterfalls in the company of companions Ginger, Colette, Chip, Coquette, Pandy, Elia, Shay and Keisha,
our other beloved pets in heaven, being wonderfully cared for with the love of Jesus and family who've gone before.
So until we see you again, soon our very special love, precious pet, Mickie,
know that you are forever loved, remembered ~
If Tears Could Build A Stairway
If tears could build a stairway,
and memories a lane,
I would walk right up to heaven,
and bring you home again.
No farewell words were spoken,
No time to say "Goodbye"
You were gone before I knew it;
and only Father God knows why.
My heart still aches with sadness,
and secret tears still flow.
For what it meant to love you,
No one can ever know.
But now I know you want me
to mourn for you no more,
To remember all the happy times
life still has much in store.
Since you'll never be forgotten,
I pledge to you today
A special place within my heart
is where you'll always stay.

You are safe now from all harm, well, healthy, strong again; so please be happy, run, play with Colette, Chip, Ginger, and all the rest who've gone before.
Every night, still, I cry when I go to bed, missing you so, sleeping on your soft bed next to ours, looking up at me wistfully as I gaze into
your eyes, picture on my phone. Two nights in a row, not long ago, as I was crying so, tears flowing, asking you and Father God to forgive me for not doing enough for you soon enough, not having the courage to end your life; and that I would see you again someday very soon .... when Gavi (Hebrew for "God is my strength") ... new puppy that I didn't really want; but he has eased our grief pain for you some, brought joy and laughter back into our home (and I've learned to love him too ... his sweet personality, many things he does just like you, remind me with bittersweet memories of you) ... Gavi too, as a puppy won't sleep anywhere (just like you) except in our bed ... as I was crying, tears falling, he crawled up near my face, gently licked me on the cheek in comfort. It was as though the Lord was letting you send a message to me that everything and YOU were okay ... a kiss, message from heaven!
I remember so well the last night you were with us, when I put you on the bed where you used to love to be, you, in so much pain, looked at me with your sad face ... and I knew. Then in the middle of the night, Elisie your companion since puppies, wouldn't sleep in our bedroom as always she had; instead retreated to the living room ... I think she couldn't bear to see you in such pain ... suddenly around 3:00 a.m. she let out the most pitiful howl ... she knew! Never had done that before, and hasn't done it since. I should have stayed up with you all night, holding you in my arms gently praying over you, telling you how much I loved you.
Mickie, I remember, too the long two week battle we fought to try to save you; and one night, kneeling down at your bed, tears falling from my eyes onto your sweet little, beautiful head, you looked up at me, such sad eyes! ... our parting was eminent, and we both knew it! I cannot bear, looking back, that I should have kept you with me that last morning instead of taking you to the veterinarian for oxygen. On the way there (10 mins.), you kept looking at me, as I gently petted you, kept crying, telling you how much I loved you and to "please hang on" ... how I regret leaving you there, thinking they would need to have you on oxygen, as before for at least 3 hrs. ... less than two later, I got the call that you were gone. Mickie, I am so sorry ...so very upset that they didn't call when you started barking, wanting me ... I could have made it back in time to hold you as you drew your last breath. Now, I learn of homeopathic remedies that would have saved your life, and let you live at least another two years, happy, healthy, well. I'm so angry with myself, the veterinarian and staff. But the "silver lining" if there is one, is that the knowledge I now have will help save Gavi and Elisie, and others pets. So I think, too, that your purpose on earth isn't finished ... you are not here, waiting in heaven for me; but the Lord is guiding me to make sure Gavi, Elisie and other pets don't suffer the way you did. Mickie, I LOVE YOU SO VERY MUCH! You are ALWAYS in MY THOUGHTS ~ FOREVER IN MY HEART! I will see you again someday soon ... please be HAPPY until then! Heaven is a better place with you in it. I thank God for the PRECIOUS GIFT you were, STILL ARE to me! LOVE YOU, PRECIOUS! ~ Mommy
