A Poem For Bella

This is what a friend of mine wrote.
Her cat Jasmine past away a bit ago.
She wrote this as if she was greeting my Sweet Bella.

That's beautiful. Made us smile and tear up at the same time.

That's so beautiful! Brought some tears to my eyes as I thought of Sweet Praline's journey to the bridge.

Oh we are so sorry about Bella leaving for the bridge. We are just getting caught up now and heard the sad news. We are sending you all lots of comforting purrs and prayers. The poem is beautiful but it made our mom's eyes leaky to read it.

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
