Not Really Coincidence: Tracing Your Purposeful Life
by Rosemary Patterson

Purposeful lives are blueprints that we plan before we incarnate. Destiny Points are free will choices at crossroads that help or hinder our blueprint...

From the day he came into our home;


He was part of our family.

He was our closest friend.

He was such a special part of our lives.


We never had to question his love.

Nor did he ever question ours.

When we laughed, he was happy.

When we were sad, he tried to comfort us.

He was such a special part of our lives.


When we had been away from home,

He made sure we knew we had been missed.

He was never in a bad mood in all those years.

If we were in a bad mood, he lovingly tried to brighten it.

He was such a special part of our lives.


He had to leave us recently, never to return.

Why now, we’ll never understand.

We hope he is at peace in the place he has gone.

We pray the emptiness in our hearts will heal.

He was such a special part of our lives.

Lovely poem. A wonderful dedication to Raven. It's never easy losing a pet. They become such a big part of our extended family. Thank you for sharing with us.
