Mota-Vational Quotes

  • "Life isn't about how to survive the storm but how to dance in the rain!"
  • "The happiest people don't always have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything they have."
  • "Every morning in Africa, a Gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a Lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest Gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn't matter whether you are a Lion or a Gazelle... when the sun comes up, you'd better be running."

We Miss You Tiggy!

Our loyal companion and best friend Tiggy passed away last Friday afternoon. Stephen got home and let her outside to go potty and play for a little bit like we usually do. She ran around for a few minutes and then started acting a little strange. She just went and sat under a tree. Stephen noticed that she was acting a little funny and called her. Buddy ran to him, but Stephen looked up from Buddy he noticed lil Tiggy laying on her side under that tree. Her little body was limp. Stephen carried her inside with her little heart barely beating and called me. I got to tell her I loved her and I thought she was the best puppy in the world. Shortly after, little Tiggy's heart just stopped. With that last beat, our hearts shattered!

Tiggy was such a special dog that brought so much love and joy to our life in everything we did. We have had such a void in our hearts without her. We never realized just how much time we spent with her until she was gone. She did everything with us and we miss her more than ever!

Tiggy not only brought love and joy to our life, but also to so many others that knew her. I truly felt like we had lost a family member as we had to call so many people to let them know. She had family from college when she was at OCU with me, family all around Texas, a great brother, a wonderful daddy and many many friends from all over. She will never be forgotten and will truly be missed!

Until we can meet at the Rainbow Bridge (see below), she will live in our hearts forever.

Rainbow Bridge
Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....
