Of Course ♥

Of Course ♥

I love when they exclaim,
“I had a Grandma dream last night !”
“Mom visited yesterday !”
Reaffirmed and forever convinced, I excitedly respond, “YaY ! What’d she say ? Did she have a message ? Details, please !”
& they happily tell.

Funny, when she first left, I was the one who’d remember best.
Incredibly vivid she was, with her hugs and love
& I would gleefully remind everyone who would listen that she was sooooo very there for them too.
It’s just that some people recall, some do not but, an occasional nightly conversation they absolutely did and do receive.

But, now ?
Now, I’m the one who cannot bring to mind any single one of her latest, comfort-filled drop ins.

I think that’s why Daughter’s recent encounter with her grandma tugs so insistently at my heartstrings and although I only received cliff-notes, my mama’s message was strong …

!! 2 Hugs !! Grandma gave me 2 HUGS !!

We were at the airport and Grandpa was there too but, he walked behind, he was always a few steps behind her.

Grandma saw me and ran to greet me and somewhere in our conversation, I said or she knew that I often wonder if she can hear me when I talk to her at night

“I’m always here.”

“Of course I’m here !”

“Don’t stop, there’s power in your prayers”

& woooo weeeee how I do appreciate those reminders !!

Love continues, of that I am convinced !
& I can only hope, when it’s my turn to go, I will be just as generous with my signs as my mama has been with hers.

Thanks for the quiet peace you continually offer, Mom.
In your million, simple ways, in your perfectly timed signs and in those dream visits I may or may not remember.

Yes, ooooooh yes, oh yes, yes, yes !! You are here.
