As many of you know, Lee’s and my life in our new city started out pretty rough. Within 5 minutes of arriving here, our little girl Sheltie, Riley, got away from Lee and was lost for about 18 hours. It was one of the worst 18 hours of our lives and we continue to pray in gratitude to the angels for finding her and getting her back to us safe and sound. However, I think all three of us are still experiencing a type of post-traumatic stress over the experience. We’re both extremely paranoid about a repeated incident to the extent that we won’t allow her off leash even inside the house if workers are coming and going.
Whenever something traumatic happens, my thoughts turn to the “why” of it. Why was it a part of our experience moving here to have lost Riley for 18 hours? What is the meaning of it? What were we supposed to learn?
Naturally, one of the things that my mind has fixated upon as a “why” is to make true believers out of Lee and I that something like this could happen again. It was a huge shock to us that Riley would bolt as she has never done that in the 6 years she’s been in our lives. Perhaps this incident was to clue us in that it’s not beyond her to go on an “adventure.” And perhaps if that were to happen again, we might not get her back. One of the things that has happened as a result of the experience is that we’re safety proofing the house for Riley. That includes building a wall in front of the house and also a second fence in the entry to the backyard.
This morning I got up at my regular pre-dawn time and made a cup of coffee. Riley was with me and my mind again turned to the “why” of it. As I pondered that cosmic question, I realized that in this case maybe I didn’t want to know the “why.” Maybe it was just better to focus on the safety-proofing and the diligence and accept with faith that any future dramas have been averted after the “shot across our bow” from our first day here in our new city.
I’ve always had faith that when challenging things happen for mysterious reasons, in time it will all be revealed. I’ve seen that process take years, but clarity does always come. But maybe in this particular case, the better part of faith is to just never know what could have happened. Maybe it’s best to just have faith that it happened for a reason that will bring us happiness for the rest of our lives, even if we can’t fathom it right now.
Some experiences take a good bit of time to heal from and I’m pretty sure this is one of those situations. But my faith that the Divine has a plan that leads to our happiness hasn’t waned. I just might not need to know the “why” of this. Now, or ever.
At least that’s what I’m going with.

Dear Radleigh, I wish you, Lee , and Riley much happiness in your new home. Why unpleasant experiences seem to occur when a move happens I don’t know, but that seems to have been my experience every time I moved to a new place. Perhaps, they are reminders to cherish what we have, to trust the Universe has our backs , and to know that we are loved, in spite of our unpleasant experiences which could always have been worse had we not lifted our hearts in faith and followed up by taking the necessary precautions to keep it from happening again.
We have been clearing alot lately. I watch and listen, that is what I am told by my angels.
I am still going with the flow. This Earth school is getting very interesting and noisy.
Congratulations on the new home. And I just want to send hugs to you. So so glad you found Riley safe and sound. 18 hours is a long time to worry. I have 3 fur babies and if I don’t know where they are every minute I panic.
Enjoy your new home. Hope you’re in a great city!
Hi. Congratulations to you and Lee on ur move. ..things. Will work out for you both …there’s always a few bumps along the way. ..but you both are strong. ..many blessings to you both
Thank you for sharing this experience. I know how terrifying it can be when one of our fur babies is MIA and I’m so glad that Riley found her way back to you and Lee. Your comments about “why” really resonated for me as I have been experiencing some career challenges and find myself asking “why” too. But I do know that I am always guided, supported and protected by my angels and have to learn to accept that sometimes “why” is not what it’s about. Maybe that’s what I’m supposed to learn – acceptance. Love, Light and blessings to you and Lee and sweet Riley. Thank you for all that you do for all of us!
I think Riley is having a hard time adjusting to the new home. Probably Riley is not understanding what happened and looking for your old home.
It will just take time to adjust.
Congratulations on your new home!!!
That was my thought, it has not been uncommon for fur babies to escape to look for their old home, not understanding the move. Happy she is back safe where she belongs. Wishing you much love and happiness in your new home!
My feelings as to your “why” was to make sure you build your wall and barriers for Riley. I have lived in SoCal my whole life and have never seen so many wild animals venturing into neighborhoods as I have in the last 10ish yrs. It is not their fault since there is not enough land left for them with all the houses being built… but it is a fact. Even in my neighborhood we don’t see outdoor cats anymore because of the coyotes. My little dog is no longer allowed to even go into our backyard without supervision anymore. Again, not the wild’s fault but it is a way of life here that someone who is new to this wouldn’t know. That, I believe, is the “why”… Blessings and congratulations on your new chapter in life. Enjoy!
I wanted to congratulate both you and Lee on your new move. Sounds like you have had a bumpy road to get there 🙂 But as always you are so positive and up beat no matter what is going on in your life. You always see
the good in everything (even when things are not).
You inspire me and everyone in our group to to be positive and always be there for each other.
Again I wish you both the best. I love your sense of humor. Even when I’m having a bad day you make
me laugh. Just being you 🙂
I hope you get settled and love your new house.
Wishing you both the best – Grace 🙂
p.s. I have been meaning to ask you. Do you have glasses for every outfit? 🙂
