My mom passed away just over 2 months ago. Today I felt a significant shift – almost like she was here with me. Numerous times today I felt like I wanted to share something with her only to realized I no longer needed to pick up the phone. The same way I’ve been communicating with dad for the last 25 years now exists for mom!
I spoke to her. I thought fondly of her. I found pictures of her. The one which fell out of a huge pile of photographs being sorted was her walking down the stairs at the cottage – holding out my baby blanket. She gave it to me when I was 27 years old. I had no recollection of ever seeing it before. It was a mini sleeping back all covered with elephants. I now had a possible explanation for my ever present love of elephants.
On Saturday morning I stopped and picked up flowers to take with me to her interment later that day. On the way there, with no time to spare, I remembered they were still at the house. Later, when I saw the cemetery associate stuff the flowers from my siblings into the ground with the urn, I thought all things happen for a reason. Coming home to the flowers I bought with mom in mind allowed me to think of her each time I looked at them.
The flowers called to me. I looked over and realized the flowers changed my wall sign from Live to Love!
Mom’s message to me today: Imagine your Dream; Create your Happiness: Love your Life.
