No message. No visit. Just been dreaming about you all week. Playing. Just like when we were kids. Hanging out. I wake up a little sad because then I remember you are gone.
Dreaming about deceased siblings, according to Dream Moods, "...indicates you miss them and are trying to relive your old experiences you had with them."
No message, just missing you.
Spent the day at the children's Museum in Seattle to celebrate my daughter's 2nd birthday. Just as we were leaving, Meema, my mother, noticed my daughter holding a stuffed animal. A snowy owl. Of course we had to buy it for her for two reasons. One, my daughter being so cute with it and two for the personal meaning.
The Snowy Owl. While in elementary school my brother either had to or chose the snowy owl to write a report about. I remember his frustration and procrastination over the assignment. His frustration from self doubt, feeling stupid wanting instead to just give up and take a failing grade. I nagged him to just do it and get it over with.
I can vividly recall the way he would grip the pencil so tight in self aggravation. As firmly as he held to the pencil, he persevered. Even through his perceived short comings he completed the report.
I wonder if from his research he learned the magical meaning of owls: wisdom.
The sight of my daughter holding the snowy owl just filled my eyes with tears, the memory of my brother and this snowy owl report flooded my mind.
Thanks for being with us today~
Yesterday I was out doing some shopping and on the return home I saw a dog running down a busy street. As I usually do I will say a quick prayer to St. Francis of Assisi to guide the dog to safety. Only this time I included my brother Ryan asking him if he'll watch over the dog too. Then thought could, "You, really watch over the dog?" Just as soon as the thought finished, I turned to my right and saw a suburban drive by with a rainbow sticker on it. Didn't think much of it until at the same time on the radio a commercial about a rainbow toy aired.
Those who know my brother would understand the rainbow connection.
Thank you again for showing me you're listening, I love you~
Please read about to get a bit more information...but today I received a present. A present that which inspired me to create this site. This is how it was presented.
I before bed decided to check my Facebook newsfeed to see what was going on with my friends. Just a quick peek and found one of my friends mentioned a year anniversary of her sister's passing. I scroll down a bit further and found another friend wishing her very much alive brother a happy birthday.
Just like that I had a thought about my own brother who passed in 2008 and wished I could wish him happy birthday. Scrolled down and my local news station posted a picture of a street sign that has my brother's name on it.
I was just shown a literal sign, he is still here and hears me.
Love you too and thank you~
