Signs From Above

I hope everyone had a very nice New Year Holiday. Now it's time to get this year a rocking' and rollin'!! Woo Hoo!

I wanted to share a story about a 'sign' from my Dad, notes from heaven, as some might say.

As some of you may know, Dad passed in 1984. He had been ill for a few years, off and on, with cancer. He had gone through several options, seemed quite healthy for awhile until it returned with a vengeance.

Dad and I had gotten close the last few years of his life. And while he was ill and in the hospital we were open about what was happening with him and had some good talks.

Dad & Sue

Something we hadn't talked about though is Dad, what signs are you going to give me once you're on the other side. I laugh now, but then, I wasn't as open to this as I am now. Death scared me more then, than it does now.

Now, I know, in my heart, he is still here with me and now I would ask him – what signs are you going to show me.

Back to the sign – so now, I have to sometimes really look and pay attention, while other times the signs are right in front of my face, like this story…

One day I am blowdrying my hair. I keep my blowdryer in a little basket in my closet.

I noticed when I grabbed it there was a paper in the basket and I thought one of my notes must have dropped in the basket too.

I picked it up and it's a little postcard. It reads:

Congratulations Dad!

To see your baby, please present this souvenir card at the nursery window during the hours when babies are shown.

Hold card against window so nursery nurse can see the name.

Please return card to mother's bedside.

Huh? What? What is this??

I flip the card over and it's all the information on Baby Broome, Female, date, time, weight, length and who the Dr was. It was my baby card from when I was born!!

How did it get in the basket, in my bathroom closet, with my blowdryer? It seems like something my Dad would do :)!! Thank you Dad! That was an awesome way of getting my attention!

Sometimes the signs aren't always as clear. Sometimes I have to look much closer.Dad & Sue looking in door

Do you have someone in your life who has passed? Are there some signs around you, you have noticed, some you haven't noticed, or maybe you are afraid to notice? Where have you been looking?

Over the next few weeks I'll talk more about the signs in my life which may help you notice the signs in yours. Sometimes they're right in front of us and sometimes we need to open a few doors.

If you'd like to share any signs in your life, either add a comment below, post it on Facebook or send me an email!

Angel Blessing to you!

    Very lovely post, Sue! The sign I remember sharing with you was, shortly after my Dad had passed, I was driving to work one morning, and thinking about Dad. Wondering how he was doing in the afterlife, you know? Suddenly I looked up and there was a small private plane flying directly through my field of view; just like the one he used to fly on weekends when I was a kid. Made me feel like he was telling me he was more than OK; enjoying flying around up there 😉 Thanks again for the reminder that our loved ones are still with us.

    Wow, amazing post. The fact that I also have lost my Dad last year on Feb, this was beyond a sign! But nevertheless I have always known my father to be over protective and I know all that he did, he did for me. Whether it was through the intense discipline I learned from him or through his random gifts he would give me, I knew in my heart he Loves me.
    Recently one of my poems titled “As One” was selected to be published in a book called “Stars in our Hearts.” Right after I received and read the letter, my aunt (his sister) messages me on my cell telling me that there is going to be a mass held in his honor the next day. At that very moment, I knew it was him. And reading your post only solidified my belief! I thank you soo much! And Send you many blessings of Love and Light! xoxoxox
