felt that I received several little signs yesterday. The first one was
hearing the song "Home" by Daughtry on my car radio this morning as I
was driving. I have that song on my iTunes play list. It makes me
think of my son, Graham. Later, when I was driving home I saw an
unusual license plate. It read "XO 22 OX." Kisses and hugs, and 22!
My son was 22 years old when he passed, and he passed on the 22nd of
September, two days from now. I made myself a latte that afternoon. I
drank it and set the cup aside. A little later I went to rinse it out
and stopped before I did because I noticed the pattern in the residue at
the bottom of the cup. It looks like two hearts with a dove above them
to me. Love and peace. Comforting messages during this difficult
month. Love transcends space and time. Here is a picture and also a
link to this special song. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p2nr9oBRsRg
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.
