I got this in an email and thought it would be wonderful to share at this time of year!! :)

God lives in the Post Office

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'm easy to find, I am wherever there is

That story gets me every time. Can't tell you how many times I have been forwarded it, but it gets to me eeeevery single time. What a wonderful world if people like that exist. They keep us all human, and keep those monsters of horrible people away.
