Graham's Birthday Week Signs

I had two signs yesterday that I recognized.  The first one was this license plate.  I noticed it on one of the cars I was walking by in a parking lot.  BTR FLI (butterfly) got my attention!  Later, while driving home I managed to take a picture of this decal of a girl with the name "LULU" on the back of a car in front of me.  I couldn't believe this one!  My daughter's name is Laura.  My son would sometimes teasingly call her Lulu!  He was the only one that would do this.  It was just last night that Laura said she would be here this week end to celebrate Graham's birthday.  Laura lives 2 1/2 hours away from us. Graham wants us to know that he is aware of all the birthday plans.  He is still here, just in another form.  To understand that our relationships don't end with our loved ones in spirit is what keeps me going.  God bless us all.

Celebrate Love

I had a wonderful sign today. I was in a store ordering a birthday cake for my angel boy's birthday on Sunday. Graham would be 29 years old. When I was done with the cake order I was looking at some food items in a display case. I couldn't believe it when I noticed a decorative display on top of the case. It was a champagne bottle with Graham's name on it (the brand name was Graham Beck)! How amazing is this? I love my darling angel boy. Graham was letting me know that he is here and will be at his birthday celebration. Love is always and forever.

St. Patrick's Day Hellos of Comfort

Every year for St. Patrick's Day I make corned beef and cabbage and Irish soda bread.  My son, Graham, always enjoyed this special meal.  I have this funny picture of him from St. Patrick's Day 2006. He had come home for the weekend from college.  He put on this green plastic St. Patrick's Day derby hat decoration for this picture with his beer.   I am so glad that we took this picture.  It's now a treasured keepsake.  Happy St. Patrick's Day, Graham.   I will meet you over the rainbow.

Posting this picture and story was emotional for me.  It made me cry.  When I dressed today I put on my Calling All Angels bracelet and my Angel bell necklace.   I find inspirational jewelry comforting.  I thought it would also be good to get out of the house for a little while.  We decided to go to a bookstore and have a latte.  That's always soothing for me.  I think Graham wanted to give me a little extra comfort today. 
Our loved ones in spirit know our thoughts and emotions.  While we were in the store the song "Love Don't Die" by The Fray played.  Afterwards, we went to a restaurant for dinner.  When we were leaving the restaurant and walking across the parking lot to our car there was a white feather in my path.  We took this picture of it.  As we were driving away we noticed this license plate on a car in the parking lot.  It read "ME &YOU"!   Graham keeps me going.  He is still with me.  Our relationships don't end when a loved one passes, they change.  I am so grateful for the signs and messages validating eternal life and love.  My precious Graham, forever at my side.

This afternoon I was in a store dressing room trying on clothes when a song started playing that got my attention.   I was intrigued because I kept hearing the line, "following a rainbow."  Rainbows have great symbolism and have become very significant to many of us.  Tonight I have been googling trying to find this song, and I found it!  The name of the song is "Rainbow," by Colbie Caillat.  I believe it is another message from my darling angel boy, Graham. Read the beautiful lyrics.  I love the "no matter how far I'll find my way to you," line.  A rainbow is a bridge between worlds.  Love to us all.

Wherever You Will Go

This really kind of blew me away today.  My husband and I were returning home after a weekend spent with some family.  As we were driving we noticed this license plate on a car in front of us.  It was a little unusual - PERSEVR (Persevere).  We were talking about it and wondering if it was a sign.  Persevere is certainly something we can all identify with when grieving.  I decided to take a picture of it.  As we were discussing this license plate this song, "Wherever You Will Go," came on the radio!  The lyrics are amazing.  There is another shadow message in this song.  One of the lines is - When I'm gone you'll need love to light the shadows on your face.  I know my sweet angel boy, Graham, was talking to us.

A member of the wonderful Facebook group I work with, "Signs From Our Loved Ones," posted this beautiful song today.  I had not heard it before.  I feel like it was a message.  This song really speaks to my heart, especially this line - "I want you near like a shadow in my wake."  Another shadow message.  Thank you, Graham, my darling angel boy.  Stay with me.
