A few weeks after my Mom crossed over, we had a celebration of her life at her house where my family and I had lived with her and taken care of her the last few years of her life. I set up an altar of sorts on the dining room table, putting candles and pictures and flowers all around. It was a beautiful day of remembrance of a woman we had all loved dearly and who had touched all of our lives immensely with her love, humor, playfulness, and joy in life.
The next day, we went to the movies with a friend of ours who was staying with us from out of town. When we got home from the movies, I walked by the dining room table, smiled at pictures of my Mom, and went upstairs for a nap. My friend and my child went to watch TV in the back TV room and my then-husband went to the front TV room.
When I came down from my nap, I was walking by the dining room table and noticed that the candle in front of where my Mom used to always sit was lit. I asked everyone if they had lit the candle. Everyone was like, no – it’s lit? My visiting friend, who is also very psychic/intuitive looked at me as we exclaimed together that my Mom had lit the candle!
Mom has given me lots of signs over the years that she’s still around, watching over us. I’ve felt her so closely that it’s impossible to put into words. She’s appeared in every psychic reading I’ve had since her passing 12 years ago, always with messages for me. I can often hear her whispering to me, offering words of love, guidance, and comfort. I know her love and presence still exist. Even so, I miss her physical presence immensely. I’m grateful, though, to know and feel that she’s still around. I regularly reach out to her and just say, “Hi Mom! I love you!” I am grateful to feel her love beaming back at me.
