I heard this song for the first time today. I can't listen to it without crying. What an amazing song. Heartbreaking, but beautiful.

Look at this beautiful smile!
As I awoke one morning last week I had the words, "the shadow of your smile," going through my mind. I knew that was a line from an old song. Graham has been giving me shadow messages lately. I googled the song to listen to it. Here is a link with Ella Fitzgerald singing this lovely song. It has such a poignant message.
"The Shadow of Your Smile" sung by Ella Fitzgerald
Yesterday my husband and I went to a Barnes and Noble book store. The music playing in the store as we walked in was "The Shadow Of Your Smile! Thank you, my sweet boy. We love you always and forever.

My husband and I spent the Valentine's weekend with my parents. My father took a picture of me with my mother before we went out to dinner Saturday night to celebrate. What a delightful surprise to see all of the orbs on me in this picture! I count at least six. My father also took a picture of me with my husband. There is an orb on his left leg! We did some close up shots to show the orbs more clearly. It is so comforting to have evidence of spirit presence in special family events. We know that our dear son, Graham, was part of our Valentine's weekend. It makes perfect sense - Valentine's Day is a day that celebrates love.

My son had a favorite jean jacket that he often wore. I have kept this jacket of his because it's so meaningful. Sometimes my husband will wear it. We have a picture of Graham wearing this jacket that has become a favorite of ours. The sun is shining around his head like a halo. The other day I was walking through a department store and happened to notice some jean jackets in the ladies department. They were on sale for a very good price. I decided to buy one and wear it for Graham. When I was home and put it beside my son's jacket I saw that it was practically identical to his! I believe that I was meant to see these. I am taking it as a sign. I had my husband take a picture of me wearing my new jacket and have put it with the picture of my dear Graham wearing his.
