Bridges and Rainbows

Malaina has taken the GRE or the Graduate Record Examination. It is the test that Graduate schools want to see when considering you for a doctorate degree. Malaina will be looking at 10 schools with good Molecular Biology labs to do her graduate work. Needless to say Malaina is run down, sick and tired. But will be graduating in April !

Jordan has moved back home. She is tired of room mates. So she moved in a couple of days ago wearing zebra print shirt, black slacks and heels. We are thrilled to have her and her 9000 pairs of shoes, coats, undies, and dresses back in the house.

We got our precious cats ashes back tonight.

They were returned in a really pretty cedar box. She was also put in a velvet bag with the Rainbow Bridge mentioned. I loved this poem and I think anyone who has lost a pet can appreciate it. You can see her lovely paw print below the poem.

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of
days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands
again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....
