those who love you unconditionally
love you with all their heart
and trust in you implicitly
~ that was the level of love I received and shared with Wesley and Arabella ~
unconditional love, the highest level of love there is
a love that asks for nothing in return
and when you have tasted love that strong and bright and breath-taking and fulfilling, it is hard to let it go
hard to forget
hard to relinquish
and being the savourer of love so pure,
and with no tiny patter of furred feetys running around me,
I sighed a deep sigh when I saw these two adorable little rabbit pendants in Donna's etsy shop Lavender Rabbit
and immediately I could feel Wesley and Arabella in them
and so, an Atlantic crossing and couple weeks later a collection of prettily wrapped gift boxes arrived in the mail accompanied by 2 resolute long eared guardians
ofcourse, since I was indulging in myself I thought it prudent to add a couple more purchases to my shopping cart and surprise my nieces and one of my beautiful pals with something nice too
and there they were - a collection of pretty gift boxes strewn across my woodland carpet
and this morning,
in the early spring sun,
I reached for a box...
no particular box....
and lifted the lid off
a tiny shiny glass pendant of my most precious little heart - Wesley
made with the very photo of Wesley the first time I saw him - and had fallen in love with him, all the way down at the RNGP Welfare rabbit rescue in Rugby, England
I shed a few tears, it was rather hard to see him clearly amongst all the spring 'rain'
such a beautiful unexpected surprise! such a beautiful heartfelt gift! thank you so much Donna! thank you so much!
and I dried my lashes, then I welcomed the two tiny stars
they were about to race off across the grass
so I scooped them up first to admire and appreciate them
so small, so adorable, so tender and touching!
then I placed them down again and
off they went
to pay their respects
soft, gentle, beautiful, elegant
and to Wesley
strong, tender, deep, heartfelt
rabbits fill me with love
they always have done, ever since I remember getting a little porcelain one all wrapped up at a xmas party, many years ago, aged 6 and three quarters
and they fill my soul with love
and heart and joy and happiness
they fill me with the very essence that 'unconditional' is
~ love in it's purest form ~
thank you again Donna, just so perfect, just so beautiful!
