Angels in The Post Office

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
This was sent to me by my friend Ruth-Ann (Biggie):

You can find angels in the strangest places.


Our dog Abbey died Aug. 23, and the day after Abbey died, my 4 yr. Old, Meredith, was SO upset. She wanted to write a letter to God so that God would recognize Abbey in heaven. She told me what to write, and I did.


Then she put 2 pictures of Abbey in the envelope. We addressed it to God in Heaven, put two stamps on it (because, as she said, it could be a long way to heaven). We put our return address on it, and I let her put it in the drop box at the post office that afternoon. She was absolutely sure that letter would get to heaven, and I wasn't about to disillusion her.


So on Labor Day, we took the kids to the museum in Austin, and when we came home, there was a package wrapped in gold on our front porch. It was addressed to Meredith so, she took it inside and opened it.


Inside was a book, " When Your Pet Dies" by Mr. Rogers (Fred Rogers).
On
the front cover was the letter we had written to God, in its envelope (opened). On the opposite page was one of the pictures of Abbey taped on the page. On the back page was the other picture of Abbey, and this handwritten note on pink paper:

"Dear Meredith,

I know that you will be happy to find out that Abbey arrived safely and
Soundly in heaven. Having the pictures you sent to me was a big help!
I recognized Abbey right away!


You know, Meredith, she isn't sick anymore. Her spirit is here with
Me (just like it stays in your heart) young and running and playing.
Abbey loved being your dog, you know. Since we don't need our bodies in Heaven, I don't have any pockets to keep things in-- so I am sending you your beautiful letter back with the pictures--so that you will have this little memory book to keep.


One of my angels is taking care of this for me. I hope this little book

Will help. Thank you for your beautiful letter. Thank your mother for
Sending
it. What a wonderful mother you have. I picked her especially
For you.


God blesses you every day and remember, I love you very much. By the way, I am in heaven and everywhere there is love.

Signed,
God, and one of his special angels (who wrote this letter after God told HER the words)."


How wonderful is that! I never knew there were angels working the post office!




I can't predict the future,
I can't change the past,
I have just the present moment,
I must treat it as my last.

What a thoughtful post office worker! That's going above and beyond and I bet he or she felt really good about having done that for your daughter.

I must admit that brought tears to my eyes

I hope your daughter felt much better after reading that letter.

Can I post this in my blog?
