  1. Codie is going through separation anxiety, quite natural as he is adjusting to a new environment. Just give him lots of love and cuddle time. Crating seems cruel to some, but it is really a healthy thing for your pup. Stephen and I both worked when we brought Louie into our home. Until he was potty trained, one of us came home every day at lunchtime (changing wet towels in his crate - using towels is a great idea, by the way - then we'd take him outdoors to potty. Puppies have a baby bladder. That will develop in time when they can hold it longer. We are older, more settled in our ways, less patient, and have more want for a steady stream of our days. Yours is turned upside down for a while. A new routine in both your lives will develop. You have the opportunity to work with a clean slate with a puppy. The outcome will be grand as you two move forward. Miniature husky, how cute is that! You're doing great! Keep up the good work! Hugs, ~Shirley
  2. Congrats Kaye! I remember when mine (a Westie) was a puppy. He is my first ever dog. We crated him when we brought him home at 9 weeks old, and for two weeks, Stephen and I took turns sleeping on the floor on couch pillows in front of Louie's crate. Stephen warned me the unbelievable sound that comes out of a puppy at night. We also were so blessed in that our pup never chewed anything other than his toys. I am sure baby stage in all things is the cutest and most challenging. You will do fine! Hugs, ~Shirley
  3. FeralFae, I haven't been here long enough to know you, but in a very spiritual sense, I do know you. Your metamorphosis is clear. So grateful to see you've embraced this change. I also live in the knowing that our loves in spirit are indeed here with us. I just passed year one of Stephen's angel anniversary recently, full of love and gratitude, no sadness or grief. A week before he was extremely present both in undeniable signs and my first dream visit. I don't need validation that he's here, as you know Doug is with you. I now strive to live my days in higher vibration. May your journey always been filled with moments of joy and balance. Hugs, ~Shirley
  4. I'm still here, just lurking. Second day of difficult grief for me. August is coming up, first year anniversary, and it's on my mind. Not all the time, but it bubbles up. Yesterday I was really distressed. I have one tshirt that still smells of Stephen tucked away in a ziplock bag. While in grief, I went to it, and it didn't smell of him. Of course I was all stuffed from weeping. Didn't think of that until today when I revisited and the smell of him is definitely still there. I know you guys understand.... 💙 We always will remind ourselves to take it a day at a time. Sometimes those days are very long though. Hugs, ~Shirley
  5. Sue, I think this is a beautiful idea. I'm glad to read you accept your family's decision. Don't let it cast a cloud on this day. Embrace the intimate ceremony with gratitude and love in your heart. 💙 Blessings to you. ~Shirley
  6. Mitch, just wanted to send some love to you. Good for you. You hang on to that glimmer, take a deep breath, and move forward with it. We'll be here to cheer you on. Hugs, ~Shirley
  7. Kaye, yes you can give Arlie milk thistle. I had my pup on a supplement when his liver panels were severely elevated. An expensive supplement. Vet then said I can give him milk thistle off the shelf now. Still giving him the other supplement until it's gone.
  8. Kayc, just wanted to send some love to you and Arlie. Take a deep breath, then go on to give you and Arlie as much special time as you can while you can. Arlie's soul will always be connected to yours. And when the time comes, George will be there to greet Arlie. ❤️ You and Arlie chose each other for a reason. Unconditional love. And the love is eternal. We'll be here right here with you. Hugs, ~Shirley
  9. Davis s, Angels come when we least expect them and need them the most. This stranger's soul reached out to touch yours. Blessings to you. And to him. ~Shirley
  10. Not an anniversary (I had that in May), but today is Stephen's 56th birthday and the first with him in the spirit world. I woke up just filled with love for him. I picked up his favorite cupcake yesterday, put a candle on that, sang happy birthday, had a little chat with him, then blew out the candle and ate the cupcake. I'm sure he rolled his eyes, as he didn't care for the birthday fuss. 💚 Grief still reaches up, but not today. Today is sacred space. Hugs, ~Shirley
  11. I don't question if it's a divine sign. I am spiritual but not religious, quite a different path for me since Stephen transitioned. God, Spirit, the Universe - we're all a part of the whole. Angels and spirit guides are everywhere. Trust your heart. 💙 ~Shirley
  12. JTP, I can certainly understand why 444 can be painful for you. (I've recently started seeing 444 either in the middle of the night or during the day when I happen to look at the clock.) Perhaps the below might give you some ease. It did for me. ~Shirley Repetitively seeing 444 is a blessing. Seeing 3-digit number patterns like 444 is a sign that you’re receiving divine messages from higher realms. These angel messages are very important to you at this time of your life and they serve as clues or guideposts to help you along your journey. Because you're always being guided, have faith that you have total divine support. Above all, when you see number 444 repeatedly, the Universe wants you to know that whatever you're going through, you're going to be okay. Just remember that your guardian angel was assigned to protect you in all ways – so hold on and persevere, follow your inner compass that points toward the light, and you'll get through this safely. That's a promise. Because there are multiple reasons why you are seeing 444, it's essential to carefully listen to the soft whispers of your heart and sense what 444 means to you. Follow your intuition for the next right steps. To help you along, here are the 5 common spiritual meanings and reasons of why you are seeing angel number 444 everywhere. 1st Meaning of 444: You are on the Path of Awakening When you see 444, it's a sign to let you know that you’re on the path of spiritual awakening. You have become more aware of the spirit within you as you are feeling the subtle energies of the Universe. The more you start learning about this new path, the more you want to discover who you really are. Are you suddenly more interested in the spiritual nature of things? Are you into spiritual books and people? The number 444 is here to tell that you’re awakening and you're on the right track of entering another dimension on a higher spiritual plane. 2nd Meaning of 444: You are Fully Supported in Your Life Journey The angels want you to know that they are close by to assist you in your life journey. Because you have free will, they cannot interfere in your life until you give them permission. All you have to do is ask them for help and guidance, and they will be ready to help you. Talk to them as you would chat with a friend, and ask questions about anything and everything that matters to you. Remember that angels love you unconditionally and want to help you, but they can’t interfere unless you ask for their help! 3rd Meaning of 444: You Are on the Right Path, Just Trust Another possible reason why you’re seeing 444 is that you’re on the right path in your life. 444 is a clear sign from the Universe that you are exactly where you’re supposed to be in this moment of your life. Trust your journey, trust the way your life unfolds, and trust that you are where you need to be at the present moment. In other words, 444 is your messenger telling you to have faith and be confident that things are going in the right direction in your life. 4th Meaning of 444: You Are in Harmony with the Universe Whenever you’re seeing 444, the angels tell you that you’re resonating with the Universe in perfect synchronicity. You’re living a truly harmonic moment with creation, and you’re ready to unravel its deepest mysteries. The meaning of 444 is that you’ve become aware of the spiritual dimension and the energies within and around you. The more you learn about yourself as a spiritual being, the more you will understand that you’re not separated from existence, but you are one with the Universe, always in perfect harmony. And this is amazing! 5th Meaning of 444: Listen to Your Intuition Once you understand that you’re fully supported on the path of awakening and that you’re unconditionally loved and vibrating in harmony with infinite creation, all that’s left for you is to listen to your intuition. This is the 5th significance of 444, and perhaps the most important of all. What this means is that you’ve reached the point in your life where you’re ready to transcend personal limitations, society conditioning, and anything that stops you from becoming your True Self. Follow your heart and listen to what resonates with you, and this will lead you to your life purpose and True Self. Seeing 444 is no coincidence at all. It is a divine sign from the Universe to help guide you on the right path. Embrace everything that happens in your life by trusting how things unfold. And remember: you’re exactly where you need to be right here, right now!
  13. JTP, wow on the bobcat! Don't doubt for a moment that it wasn't a sign from Bob. Those in the spirit world are always with us, always. Unfortunately, not on our terms, but they are here. 💜 Kieron, same here. Your soul knows. 😊 I've had many signs from Stephen since he transitioned. I still have them, just don't always see them. Two days ago I had a weepy moment. Later when I came to my computer, it was at the start screen with his name up. This has happened multiple times. No doubt he popped in to say hi. So I talk to him, invite him in to join me anytime he can. ~Shirley
  14. Mitch, there is no right or wrong answer to this question. We all grieve in different ways, just as our lives and our loves are different. I will never search for a new love. I had the one I wanted and I'm at peace with that. I have managed to move forward to acceptance for what is, and gratitude for being so blessed to have had my life with Stephen. When I speak of gratitude, it's always about being deeply grateful for having him in my life. I would not shed my grief for one second, if that meant wiping out the love and life I had with Stephen. I carry the badge of grief, but I also carry the badge of love. Hugs, Shirley
  15. Mitch, without you in this life, Tammy would not have had the joy of sharing it with you. I wish you a blessed day. There are many days to mark, many days to simply let go by. It's perfectly acceptable either way. Hugs, Shirley
