    Hello. I recently read through the life of Miracle and i made this thread so that everyone who read her story could remember her. I hope that if any of you who knew her find this thread you will post something on here. I wish that i had been there when she was still alive, but very unfortunately, i was not. Please reply if you knew miracle. I wish i had been there for her, but it would be just as good to meet those of you who did.

    Rainbow Bridge

    Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

    When a bird dies that has been especially close to someone here, that bird goes to the Rainbow Bridge. At the Rainbow Bridge, there are meadows, hills, and beautiful trees of all kinds where all our special friends can fly and climb, hang and flap, hop and run, jump and play, squawk and squeal and sing together.

    There is plenty of good food, including grapes and peanuts, ice cream and cheese, spaghetti and especially lots of pizza. There is crystal clear water in brooks and springs are filled with water as well as every kind of delicious fresh fruit juice.

    One warm spring even runs full of the coffee they can now drink their fill of without hearing a single no-no. There is a lot of glorious sunshine and sweet warm rain when they want it and our friends are warm and comfortable and totally at peace.

    All the birds that had been ill or old are restored to health and vigour and to their natural incredible beauty. Their feathers shine, their wing feathers are whole and their eyes gleam once again with vitality. Those who were hurt, maimed, ignored, or broken-hearted are made whole again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days gone by.

    The birds are happy and content. Except for one small thing: they each miss someone very special to them who had to be left behind when the bird returned home. Still they all fly and play happily and safely and noisily together: even the grouchiest greys and orneriest senegal, the tiniest finches and the grandest macaws

    But the day comes for each bird when he suddenly stops and looks far into the distance. His body freezes and his bright eyes are intent as he watches and listens in silence. Suddenly he begins to fly from the group, soaring over the green grass, his wings flapping harder and harder!

    You have been spotted - and he shrieks to you and then calls your name and his own and cries again and again, as he rushes towards you.When you and your bird finally meet, you cling to each other in joyous reunion, knowing you will never be parted again.

    Your face and your fingers and even your toes are covered with beak nibbles and soft ecstatic kisses. Your hair is preened by that special beak, and his head bends under your fingers to invite your touch. Your hands again find their way under beloved wings, to caress the downy softness beneath.

    You look once more into the trusting eyes of your companion, so long from your physical life on earth but never for an instant absent from your heart. Your tears of joy are gently brushed away by those beloved wings and feeling immersed once more in total contentment and love, you and your beloved companion cross the Rainbow Bridge together.

    That is beautiful! I'd seen versions for furbabies, but never one for featherbabies! I recently lost a dear one to a vicious attack, a beautiful Frizzled Blue Banty Cochin hen - the best mama hen you could ever think of! - and this was just perfect for her passing! Thank you!


    Edited:
    Okay, I also have to say... your signature is true, sbolevic... Doctor Who IS awesome! Sitting here through the BBC America Doctor Who marathon as I type, and DVRing all of them I don't already own, in fact!

    I knew Miracle from the start and even grew a Miracle garden. Miracle loved purple petunias, so that's what I grew. When she passed Mena offered feathers to any one interested.

    She sent me 3 beautiful feathers that I still have. I hybridize a type of houseplant and named one "Believe in Miracles." She was truly a treasure for all the days of her too short life., and Mena was a great story teller.
