So I never posted this when it happened. I think my grieving process was so overwhelming that I forgot to share... I know there are a lot of people on this forum dealing with loss right now, including myself (not so fresh, but still there.) So I wanted to share this amazing story with you.... hopefully it will make you smile, or shed some happy tears
So when Georgia passed I wanted to get her cremated. My boyfriends family had lost a dog a while back and found a place that holds ceremonies for your pets. This place is amazing! They picked my little girl up from the hospital and held her until he had our ceremony.
They had Georgia in her own little room resting on top of a pillow and under a blanket. They had beautiful music playing and candles lit. The woman gave me some time with her and I got to pet her and kiss her one more time. When she returned she read two poems. The first I do not remember, however, the second was The Rainbow Bridge. I never heard of this poem until then and it hit me like a ton of bricks. It was such a great thought and I could just picture Georgia at that rainbow.
After the poems and the blessing, we had her cremated. We waited for a while and shared pictures with the woman and funny stories. I was looking over some jewelry I was thinking about getting, (they took her paw print and I was going to have it made on a charm for a necklace.) Well, the man comes out from the back and says, "Georgia is ready." At that split second my boyfriend says, "Look!." Before all our eyes, a rainbow the length of my little girl appeared on the ground. To our amazement, there was little to no sunlight around to encourage this phenomena. I began to cry, smile, and laugh all at the same time! I felt at that moment she arrived and she was letting me know that she was "OK."
The woman told me, if they are strong willed that they will find a way. Well, I guess my little girl found hers. I will forever remember that beautiful little rainbow!
