If you need support, understanding, and love, let us know here.
Elaine, there is no way to pull everything together in your head during a life and death moment that comes as a surprise like that. You are lucky you got out alive. Such a shock to the system to be in a situation like that. I feel for you with all of my heart, dear friend,. May you heal from this overwhelming tragedy. May our hearts surround you and your beloved pets with love.
Thank all of you for your kind words.
That is so incredibly hard. Our beloved pets are family. We love them and they love us and we can't help but feel responsible for them as they depend on us in so many ways
I truly understand your emotions and your deep sense, even pain of letting them down. Pain and loss and grief and change that is suddenly forced upon us is a terrible weight to carry. Your heart is so heavy right now, and worry and crying from loss makes it even harder.
You have too many things to think about, worry about and you are overwhelmed. Let some of that weight be lifted by knowing and remembering you got out, you are alive, you have another chance to be happy again in the future as things get better, as things settle again.
Most cats hide when they are scared. The smoke is so overwhelming it almost puts them to sleep. That is a blessing you see as then there is no suffering. Remember this, because the smoke put them to sleep, they did not suffer.
I doubt you could have even found them even if you'd risked losing your own life to find those last two cats. You would have been overcome by the smoke too.
You were so very scared and you were confused but you got out, you are alive and the two cats and the dog who slept with you are alive. Never forget that, remember that when you are scared or sad. You are alive and it will get better
You will always remember this frightening time, these very sad losses and you will mourn the loss of all you had that you miss. And I am so very, very sorry for all of your losses in your life.
But if you forgive yourself for having been unable to do more and remember you did the best you could at the time and it could have been so much worse, then you will know they are truly ok in a different way now.
Take a deep breathe, close your eyes, think of them, feel love for them, and gently tell them thank you for having been in your life, and that you will always love and remember them.
Imagine them crossing over a rainbow bridge of love and peace. See all the animals, all the people you have loved in this same deep, loving place of peace and just know in your heart it is all o.k. for all of them now. Different but better and at peace.
And bit by bit, each day at a time, you will find your own way out of all these emotions, these changes, all this upheaval in your life to a better more peace filled time.
It will take time, it's not easy, but one tiny thing at a time, one choice at a time, one decision towards peace and always, always know we care and we are all here for you. You are never really ever, ever alone. 💜
Elaine, I am sorry for your profound loss and all that it entails. Michele and the others here have offered beautiful wisdom, guidance and love. May you find comfort here and may your new path be filled with many blessings and love.
I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of your pets. Know they are in spirit and are watching over you. (I could tell you stories..) Healing thoughts directed your way.
Oh, Elaine, I'm so sorry for all you've recently experienced.
To lose not only your home and possessions, but beloved pets, that is quite a tragedy. I'm so sorry. Hugs.
There have been many words of wisdom already offered on this topic, and since I tend to be verbose, I'll just offer this (besides good wishes and condolences)-a friend of mine used to tell me that trials are proof of God's love. Consider yourself beloved, and know that your spiritual foundation is solid, and with a good foundation, you can build anything your heart desires.
My life has been hectic and so much going on. I have been happier but I still have fears of loosing my family. We are making our place in the world sharing the love we have. My job let's me open up and make people's day. I have gotten so many compliments of how I'm a sweet heart. It feel a strange this change, but it warms my heart. You all are part of my family, at least to me. Stay safe and always spread love.💜
First of all, Elaine, so sorry for your loss. I want you to know that we all are here for you and everything will be alright. Your beloved pets are with you every time watching over you.
I was having a bad time lately and it was difficult for me to overcome certain situations but I remind myself daily that this life is a gift and short so I don't want to waste it worrying.
I want to think all of you for your good thoughts. I got permission for a new trailer. I know some people look down on trailers, but I always lived in an airy old house. You couldn't get warm unless you were a foot away from a gas stove, baking. A trailer has no drafts. I would like a cat flap, but my brother, who is paying for part of it even though I had insurance, doesn't like cats, or even dogs that I'm aware of, and he wouldn't like it.
Congratulations on getting your home approved. what a relief!
If I read your other posts correctly, 2 of your cats made it out of the trailer but not all of your animals. If your are worried about them in case of a future emergency, I think your should do what puts YOUR mind at ease. You are the one who suffered the trauma. You are the one who needs reassurance. Whether your brother likes animals or not, I think you still have 2 cats. If you believe taking care of your cats means getting a door, do so and be at peace.
Consider putting yourself first in this situation. Hugs to you!
I’m requesting anyone who can to please send light, love and healing energy to Natalie Weaver. She is an advocate for medically fragile children, who has a child who is profoundly disabled and has severe facial deformities. Her daughter will be having her 29th surgery next Friday. Natalie is constantly being harassed by dark people telling her that her child is a monster and she should kill her. She receives verbal abuse, judgments, cruelty and death threats towards her and her child everyday. But she continues to fight. Natalie is a fighter for those who can’t fight for themselves.
Sending Natalie and her daughter light, love, & white light of healing & protection.
Sorry everyone for bot keeping in touch. I moved recently and now I have pneumonia. I'm quite miserable keep me in y'all thoughts ~Laynara💜
Sending healing thoughts and vibes of unpacking your way! Feel better!
I've made the difficult decision to put little Dusty to sleep. He is almost 13 1/2, has had diabetes for 6 years, and is blind and deaf. He's so sweet and those issues are not a problem, but now he has an infection that most likely cannot be cured without surgery and hospitalization. I can't bear to see him suffer the pain and separation anxiety when he can't see and knows that we are not with him. He has had a good life. Please send him--and his family (us) light and love.
Am holding you and little Dusty in my thoughts, Snowbird.
Bless you for loving him so much you could let him go. Now, he can rest in peace surrounded by love from you and all of us who know the difficult challenges we have faced when making this decision for those we have loved abd released to the beautiful energies of the rainbow bridge .
You are in my heart as he is in yours, and you in his, bonded in love and compassion forever.
Oh, the unconditional bond of love we forge with earth's gentle creatures. 💞
I am trying not to fear as things start to happen quickly, I pray everyday that I will watch this sweet soul I got blessed to raise grow into a great young man and do great in this world. I am feel much better as well with lots of rest and support that I had. I look forward to grow with you all and see what the future holds for us all. 💜Laynara
Hi everyone - another sheepish call for kind words here. It feels as though my life is falling apart, and I'm struggling to cope with it all. I found out recently that my great great aunt died and my mother had kept the news from me for over a month. This morning my mother in law called to tell us that my husbands step grandfather had passed away. 2 weeks ago I received the results of my ancestry dna test and it made me question whether my father was actually my father. My mother can give me no information (I've asked), and dad just repeats that it makes no difference to him. I'm crushed, falling down a deep hole, wondering who I am and what on earth has been going on.
I thank you for sharing your problems with us .
I am deeply grateful for your presence alongside us .
May this hole give you the chance to define yourself with your own will and words.
May you no longer be stereotyped by a heritage you did not choose.
May you sprout out into the light .
In your hands I see the light .
Let it glow!
