BIRTHING A NEW STORY

I WAS AWAKENED BY THE PLANTIVE CRY OF A NEW BORN SEAL PUP.
I GOT UP AND WENT OUT ON THE DECK TO WATCH THE STARS…
Fuji would have companioned me being a creature of the night.
I miss his physical presence, yet relieved by his freedom.

I touch Bastet protecting Fuji‘s image on the Stone of Gratitude…
Hold them to my chest. It is not the same brief warmth
of a cuddle before Fuji would head off on an adventure.

I remember the presence of our child hood dog,
Tammy, a Sheltie Border Collie Cross always present and caring.

Tammy

Tammy had such patience with us.  Look at the bathing suit
belonging to my little sister Karen that we had her dressed in.
Please forgive us Tammy. 

Both Tammy and Fuji are now in spirit but certainly present
in my heart of gratitude.

I longed for a soft cuddle and remembered the little dog that came to be with
Faery and Willhe….link to their story

Faery and Willhe

Unfortunately Faery and Willhe were not physically childproof…..
But the little Duster pup was….
She had been patiently waiting for me atop the cabinet in my office…
A year ago a Mystical friend had said, I keep seeing this dust mop white dog with you…
Do you have one?”  “No, we have a cat”, I said.
It was after the conversation that I brought the Duster pup up to my office where she patiently waited.
I pulled the fluffy pup down and cuddled the softness and her name came as a gift
from Tammy and Fuji “TAMJI”
The warmth of the joy, love and happiness enveloped me.
Here was the little girl finding a companion that she was not afraid of hurting or losing…
or doing anything wrong.
Tamji was excited about me clipping the fur around her eyes so we could see each other.
I clipped the red bow from her hair…..”How about a bath?”  I asked….

I fetched some Ivory soap and a towel and placed Tamji in the tub for a wash…
Sweetness and joy, we played well together.
As we soaped up and rinsed off I sang to her
As my Mother did for me
Rubba Dub Dub
Pup in the tub
And who do you think she be?
Tammy, Fuji, Star Pup three
Tamji, Tamji Me!
Rubbing her with the towel and continuing to sing….. I took her to meet Bastet and Fuji…
Thrilled, Bastet and Fuji came into the morning light and welcomed
Tamji’s birthday sunrise!

Tamji and Bastet

We all were delighted in welcoming her!
Maarten smiled in meeting her and suggested she sun bathe on the upper deck.
There she may dry her coat and feel the warmth and loving energy of Maarnada….

Tamji drying on deck

Love is forever
Forgiveness and release
Gratitude for loving well
Love animates,
Joy radiates,
Happiness shared…
The Gift of Bastet

Tamji with me as I write her story

Then the whole family sat for a group picture
on the Peace blanket, with their Imagine Ball
Gifts from Grantie Bridget
Faery, Tamji, Willhe, Bastet, Fuji….

Picture of Family

Beings of Peace on the Peace Blanket
All is well and will be well in the morning light
With blessings in the light of new beginnings…….
