had a great heavenly message last Sunday. I had a hair appointment that
afternoon. I have been seeing this hairdresser for the seven years that
I have lived here. She knew and liked my son, Graham. She used to cut
his hair too. I had been sitting in the chair at the salon for about
an hour talking with my hairdresser when a song came bursting out in the
store that immediately got my attention. It was Katy Perry singing
"Firework." Up until this point I couldn't tell you what music had been
playing. The other music had not been as loud as this song was. I
told my hairdresser that this song and its message was special to me.
It's a song that I have on my itunes playlist. She told me that it was
special to her too. This song was played at her son's 5th grade
graduation. I told her that I thought it was a message from Graham for
us. She then said, "Oh, I am getting cold chills up and down my body,
even in my cheeks." Graham was validating what I was saying. There is a
line in the song that goes- "Ignite the light, and let it shine." On
the drive home just as I was telling my husband about this a car passed
in the lane next to ours with a colorful license plate that read
SHINEON! I was amazed and delighted! Graham keeps me going every day.
Love is always and forever. ♥
Here is a link to this great song with a great message for us all-
For as long as I can remember, I wanted to be a mother. I was so happy to have a daughter and a son. They were the focus of my life. Two years ago my 22 year old college senior son died in a tragic accident. The shock and trauma has sent me into a search for meaning. Eight months ago poetry started flowing through me. I believe that the poems are meant to be shared. They are helping me to heal. I hope that they might help others also.
