I will never forget that fall day in 1993 when I fell in love with a little black ball of fur in a pet shop at the mall. I was not looking to get a pet but, he quickly stole my heart and changed my mind. Then I took him to meet my mom and she too fell in love and named him Mydnite. Little did I know then that our journey together would last 20 wonderful years. Those years would be filled with love, sadness, boyfriends, husbands, illness, loss, and several relocations. That sweet little face was there to greet me every morning, and I was always happy to see it. He stuck by my side through thick and thin only asking for my love in return. He was the only male that never hurt or dissappointed me, and he was my treasure. I will miss those sandpaper kisses, those morning cuddles, our play time, and just being together. Have fun at the Rainbow Bridge my sweet baby...Until we meet once again and cross over .....TOGETHER.|
12/06/13 Well my little prince it's been 7 days since you left me, and my heart is still aching terribly. My tears are still flowing consistantly. The mornings are the worst, I keep waking up expecting to see your sweet face. I still can't bring myself to take up your food and water bowls. They sit empty in your feeding area. Your Grandma, and your Daddy have been great in consoling me this past week, you would be so proud of them. Said a prayer and lit a candle for you today, I miss you so much.
The Last Battle
If it should be that I grow frail and weak
And pain should keep me from my sleep,
Then will you do what must be done,
For this -- the last battle -- can't be won.
You will be sad I understand,
But don't let grief then stay your hand,
For on this day, more than the rest,
Your love and friendship must stand the test.
We have had so many happy years,
You wouldn't want me to suffer so.
When the time comes, please, let me go.
Take me to where to my needs they'll tend,
Only, stay with me till the end
And hold me firm and speak to me
Until my eyes no longer see.
I know in time you will agree
It is a kindness you do to me.
Although my tail its last has waved,
From pain and suffering I have been saved.
Don't grieve that it must be you
Who has to decide this thing to do;
We've been so close -- we two -- these years,
Don't let your heart hold any tears.
12/25/2013- Merry Christmas my little prince. It's been almost a month since you went to the bridge, I'm still crying for you. If anyone would have told me last Christmas would be our last together, I wouldn't have believed it. I'm surrounded by our family, but I'm still so lonely because your not here opening your prezzies with us like we've done all 20 Christmases. I hope your having fun with all of your new friends, they have wonderful mommies and daddies who have been very sweet to me since you've been gone. Don't you worry about Mommy my love, I 'll be ok in a while. I just miss you so much is all. Today is Jesus' birthday, go give him one of your loving sandpaper kisses and nuzzles,see if he'll let you sit in his lap for a while. Let him know your Mommy loves you both very much. Have a happy Christmas my sweet boobot xoxoxoxo
My First Christmas at Rainbow
I see the countless
around the world below
With tiny lights, like Heaven's stars,
reflecting on the snow
The sight is so spectacular;
please wipe away the tear
For I am spending Christmas with
St. Francis this year.
I hear the many Christmas songs
that people hold so dear
But the sounds of music can't compare
with the Christmas choir up here.
I have no words to tell you,
the joy their voices bring,
For it is beyond description,
to hear the angels sing.
I know how much you miss me,
I see the pain inside your heart.
But I am not so far away,
We really aren't apart.
So be happy for me, dear ones,
You know I hold you dear.
And be glad I'm spending Christmas
with St. Francis this year.
I sent you each a special gift,
from my heavenly home above.
I sent you each a memory
of my undying love.
After all, love is a gift more precious
than pure gold.
was always most important
the stories I've been told.
Please love and keep each other,
as St. Francis said to do.
I can't count the blessing or love he
has for each of you.
So have a Merry Christmas and
Wipe away that tear
Remember, I am spending Christmas with
St. Francis this year.
* 1/1/14 * Happy New Year my sweet little kitty. I miss you, I love you xoxo
1/14/14 Hi my sweet boy. Today was the breakthrough that I thought would never happen, I didn't burst into tears at the thought of you. I smiled when I told a friend a funny memory of you, and could feel the happiness from you my angel that finally mommy smiled and laughed. I'm getting my life without you back on track a bit at a time because I know you want me to. I feel you with me, you are always in my heart. Mommy loves you sweet boo bot xoxoxo
2/14/14 Happy Valentine's Day my sweet boy. I think of you each day and remember some of the many wonderfullly sweet things you did to make every day Valentine's day for me. The tears still come but not as often and I know you are waiting for me. I kiss your picture every night before I go to sleep but you already know that don't you. I miss you my sweet little boo bot, and I love you always.
3/29/14 It's been 4 months today since you went to Rainbow Bridge. I still miss you so very much, but the pain and tears are getting better. I know it's a process this grief thing. I adopted 2 kitties from a very nice rescue, they are so sweet and lovable but they are not you. I know you would want me to give these new boys all of the love that I gave to you. I'm doing my very best and I believe they love me and are very happy . I hope you are having fun with all of your new friends, I'm sure you have told them all about your family, they all miss you too. I hope you will be waiting for me when it's time for me to cross over the bridge. I really miss your sandpaper kisses. I love you my sweet boo bot, and I always will.
7-4-14 Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday dear Myder.... Happy Birthday to you. I wish you were here celebrating with me my little love, but I know your running, jumping high, and playing waiting for Mommy. We are celebrating you and our country's independence today. Family will be together as always, and we will raise a purr for you.
Happy 21st Birthday boo bot, Mommy loves you. xoxoxox
7-29-14 It's been 8 months today since we had to say our earthly good-bye. It was literally the worst pain I've ever felt in my life. I thought I would never stop crying and I didn't want a life without you in it. Your 21st birthday passed 2 weeks ago and though I smiled while with family, I cried myself to sleep. Your new brothers were there, but whenever I was down or sick you never left my side. I can't believe it's been almost a year, it still seems unreal that you're not here with me anymore. I know your in a beautiful place, happy & healthy & running young and free. Mommy loves you boo bot...I miss you xoxoxox
9-29-14 We said farewell 9 months ago today. I still see your sweet face in my dreams, and feel your love in my heart. I miss you my little prince, but I know you are in a wonderful place. I love you Myder with all of my heart.
11/29/14 Well it's been 1 year today that I had to let you go to Rainbow Bridge. This has been a difficult year trying to get on without you. I'm doing better now but, still missing you my little darling. I wish I could just hold you in my arms once more and shower you with kisses. I know you are waiting for your mommy, I want you to chase butterflies and rainbows, lie in the sun and have fun with all of your friends who are waiting for their mommies and daddies too. I still cry for you. I'm weeping as I type this. I never knew I could love someone so much until I brought you into my life. It made not being able to have children a little more bearable. Know that mommy is thinking of you this holiday season and sending you kitty hugs and sandpaper kisses. I miss you my little black ball of fur, and Love you with all of my heart now and forever xoxoxoxoxoxoxo
12/28/14 My sweet little baby boy Merry Xmas. I hope you and all of your friends had fun looking at all of the lights from up above. I'm sure the choirs from heaven sound so pretty. I know you were with St. Francis as you played happily, I hope you sent me a kiss for xmas. I wish you could have been here with me, but I know I had to let you go. I just want to have one more day here with you. I miss you my sweet boo bot. I love you....Merry Christmas.
If tears could build a stairway
and thoughts a memory lane
I'd walk right up to heaven
and bring you home again.
3/4/15 I Just wanted to let you know you've been heavily on Mommy's mind and heart today sweet baby boy.
All I wanted to do was hold you close and inhale your fur. Tears flowed freely because I miss you and I
still have a hard time believing your not here with me. Watch over Mommy my sweet little prince. I love you
so so much boo bot... so so much. xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo
11/29/15 Hello my sweet little boy. Today is the second year since you went to the Rainbow Bridge. I still cry and feel very sad on this day even though I know your in a much happier place. I still think of you often and still miss your sweet face and loving sandpaper kisses. I have never known love like before you came into my life and I learned to put someone else before myself. Thanks for all of my wonderful memories, and most of all for 20 wonderful years of your furbaby love.
I love you Myder RIH my sweet little prince xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo

Please watch over mommy this year and send me some of your purrs and sandpaper kisses from time to time I really miss them. I love you baby boy xoxoxoxoxoxoxo
2/16/16 Happy Belated Valentine's Day my little love. I'm sure by now you've seen Gucci, Grandma had to send him to the Rainbow Bridge. He like you had been suffering his old body. I'm relieved to know he had a friendly familiar face to greet him. Send Grandma some sandpaper kisses, she's so sad right now and really needs them. You be a good kitty and watch out for him until we all are together again. Mommy loves you boo bot xoxoxoxo
11/29/16 Hello my little prince. 3 yrs ago today was the saddest day of my life. I had to send you to the rainbow bridge. You had to go somewhere that mommy couldn't follow you , and that broke and still breaks my heart. I still miss you my love but now the tears don't come as often. I have 2 kitties now who have been a big help in helping mommy find some happiness again. I love them dearly, but they are not you. I hope you and Gucci are having fun playing and chasing butterflies and rainbows together. Tell him we miss him, and we love him. I still long to hold you once more sweetie, but I have come to know that sending you to the bridge was because I love you so, and couldn't let you suffer. we had 20 yrs. together, and for that I am so happy and grateful. I love you Mydnite, always.
Please also visit Gucci.
