Don't know how long if will take, if ever, to feel normal again without Doodlebug in my life. So, yesterday, Evin, Eddie, Bumble and I took a road trip for some "distraction". Above and below I share with you what gave me a little peace.
As I was taking shots of the above flowers a jeep pulls over and the driver says, "Those are some beautiful flowers aren't they?" I agree and we began talking about the beauty of Nature and I tell him about trying to distract myself from the grief I feel over our loss of Doodlebug.
The stranger then recites a wonderful poem answering the question that I have been asking myself, "Will I see Doodlebug in Heaven?" Turns out that the stranger was writer Doug Foshee, the author of Cowboy Heart, Soul and Humor. The answer in the poem was "YES" if a pet is loved the way we loved Doodle. God gives those pets a soul. I felt much peace after hearing the reassurance of Doug's poem. God does work in mysterious ways.
