A quick story to warm your heart for the day.
 
Our 14-year-old dog Abbey died last month. The day after she passed away my 4-year-old daughter Meredith was crying and talking about how much she missed Abbey. She asked if we could write a letter to God so that when Abbey got to heaven, God would recognize her. I told her that I thought we could so, and she dictated these words: 

Letter from Post Office
 
Dear God,  
Will you please take care of my dog?  
She died yesterday and is with you in heaven.  
I miss her very much.  
I 'm happy that you let me have her as my dog even though she got sick.  
I hope you will play with her.  
She likes to swim and play with balls.  
I am sending a picture of her so when you see her you will know that she is my dog.  
I really miss her.  
Love, Meredith 

We put the letter in an envelope with a picture of Abbey & Meredith , addressed it to God/Heaven.  We put our return address on it. Meredith pasted several stamps on the front of the envelope because she said it would take lots of stamps to get the letter all the way to heaven. That afternoon she dropped it into the letter box at the post office. A few days later, she asked if God had gotten the letter yet. I told her that I thought He had.
 
Love letter
Yesterday, there was a package wrapped in gold paper on our front porch addressed, 'To Meredith' in an unfamiliar hand. Meredith opened it. Inside was a book by Mr. Rogers called, 'When a Pet Dies.' Taped to the inside front cover was the letter we had written to God in its opened envelope. On the opposite page was the picture of Abbey & Meredith and this note:

Dear Meredith,  
Abbey arrived safely in heaven. Having the picture was a big help and I recognized her right away.  
Abbey isn't sick anymore. Her spirit is here with me just like it stays in your heart. Abbey loved being your dog.  
Since we don't need our bodies in heaven, I don't have any pockets to keep your picture in so I'm sending it back to you in this little book for you to keep and have something to remember Abbey by.  
Thank-you for the beautiful letter and thank your mother for helping you write it and sending it to me. What a wonderful mother you have. I picked her especially for you.  
I send my blessings every day and remember that I love you very much.  
By the way, I'm easy to find. I am wherever there is love. 
Love,  
God 
 

  Have a Playful Monday!

"Today isn't Monday. It's a moment. A field of moments like a meadow of daisies. Every moment offers another chance to get present and choose love instead of fear. As you answer emails, go to the doctor, pick up the children: practice breathing in a new moment with new and infinite possibilities that exceed your mind's limitations. It's not Monday. It's a stream of chances to be alive."
