Who blesses who? Who loves who? Who rescues who?
It’s been three days since we said goodbye to Lexie. Today I say hello again and look forward to the day we all will meet in the Pure Land aka Rainbow Bridge.
Below are a couple of quotes from the excellent book Blessing the Animals by Lynn L. Caruso (c) 2006 to comfort us in the meantime.
“The love we give to a pet, and receive from a pet, can draw us more deeply into the larger circle of life, into the wonder of our common relationship to our Creator.” Kevin E. Mackin, OFM referenced on p.23 Blessing for Cats
“There are two means of refuge from the miseries of life: music and cats.” Albert Schweitzer referenced on p.31 Blessings for Cats
“May all creatures be freed from their suffering. May all creatures be freed from their illness. May those in fear be comforted and those bound be set free.” Buddhist prayer adapted by Lynn L. Caruso Partings p.180
Today’s humble senryu: Lexie
we will not forget
our love for each other – we
will reunite soon
