Cute story

This was sent to me today…...for a misty eyed moment.

No way of knowing if it's true or not....enjoy!:)

This is one of the kindest things I've ever experienced. I have no way to know who sent it, but there is a kind soul working in the postal system.

Our 14 year old dog, Abbey, died last month. The day after she died, 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 she dictated these words:

**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 am 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 play with balls and to swim.
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 and Meredith and
addressed it to God/Heaven. We put our return address on it. Then
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.

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. I recognized Abbey 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 am
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 am wherever there is love.

Love,
God**

Wow, how cool!🆒
