My mother passed away in December of 2018 at the age of 84. Today, August 8th, would have been her 87th birthday! I can’t believe that she’s be gone for nearly three years now, but even though she is greatly missed in the physical sense, I know that her energy is still here all around us – loving us, encouraging us, rooting for us.
She’s definitely been on our minds this past week. My daughter texted me last Sunday saying that she woke up thinking about her. Then at a dinner on Wednesday, we saluted her upcoming birthday. Then when my brother and I walked on Thursday, she sent a little cluster of dragonflies our way! (I usually attribute dragonflies to my brother, Brian, who passed in 2017, but my mother co-opts them from time to time for shout outs of her own.)
And to add even more emphasis to the week, Mom also referenced our home state of Indiana, twice! Once was by having me pay attention to the return address on a package from — wait for it — Indianapolis, and then just a day later she had me staring at an Indiana license plate, on a semi-truck, no less, which was stopped right in front of me!
Mom also came through at the aura reading I had last month. The reader saw angel wings behind me and asked if I had been thinking about someone who had passed. I brought up my mom since her bday was near. So we asked her to come forward and show the color green on the screen (green because it was not already on the screen, plus it was her favorite color). Within several seconds, I kid you not, green appeared!
It’s so wonderful to recognize these little winks from above, because love is truly what makes the Universe go round. We are here to work its magic. Look for it, reach for it, and expect to find it.
“It’s the truth of who you are
On the inside and the out.
Love is what you’re made of,
And love is what life is all about.”
Happy Birthday, Mom!
