I awoke this morning realizing that beyond his undeniable beauty and cuteness, his giving spirit is what gave Rhu that extra oomph. He was here to teach me the many lessons of life. Being his Guardian Angel for four short years taught me more about life than spending a much greater span of time with a dog that didn’t require any special attention.
Losing him was like a category 5 hurricane tearing through my heart and shredding it into a million pieces. The storm was rough but the aftermath, even more so. There are so many games the mind plays - the why’s …the, what if’s, did I do enough…All futile, but mind does it any way. During these weeks in trying to put meaning back into my life, there was this underlying voice that said to look beneath the rubble and a purpose will surely be revealed. Therein was the first inspiration to form the
“Remember Rhubarb Fund”
Okay so there’s an idea but, where do I start? I’ve never done anything like this in my life. I’ve done the giving part to an already existing cause, but being the cause itself was a whole new place to come from. My sincerity was winning the contest over fear and the sincere desire to make his memory into a worthwhile cause became a focus, then to that focus I added two of Rhubarb’s most worthy of traits, courage and the big one…trust.
This continued trust, led me to people who could advise me, work with me on creating the very best thing that would honor him in an ongoing way. And then it came into fruition. The Remember Rhubarb Fund is really here and no longer just a dream but a cause. I am now trusting that each and every one will continued to be inspired by his adventures featured on the
Life With Rhu web pages.
Let’s keep his cause alive by helping other pets that have special needs.
