    Re: One year ago, today.

    Have red cardinals showed up at appropriate family functions? They have appeared at my family functions.

    What Is the Spiritual Meaning of the Red Cardinal Bird?

    A few months ago, he and my mom got new cell phones. So he took his old phone and wanted to make sure everything was erased from it, and he came across a voicemail from DAD, wanting to tell my brother that he was OK and everything was good. He didn't say WHEN this message was left, but he believes it was from a while ago. In the later years, we never left dad alone. He was too unpredictable in both his disease and the things he would get into. He would often 'freeze up' and fall or get stuck somewhere he shouldn't be and would be helpless if no one was there to help him.

    In the beginning, once in a very great while, they did leave dad on his own for very short periods of time, and my brother kind of believes the message was from one of those times, and dad was just letting him know that he was OK and hadn't gotten himself into trouble. The thing that "vexed" (for lack of a better word) my brother was that he did not typically save his messages once he heard them and for this one to still be there and show up when it did, kind of flipped him.

    My brother asked us if we thought it was a sign, and my mom and I both agree that we think it was, especially since it was my brother, the one that doubted the strength of his faith, who found the message, as a way to give him hope.

    My dad taught me to never TOTALLY disbelieve anything, so I do believe that the voice mail my brother found, WAS a sign from dad that he is OK and is well.
    That was a GREAT read Don. And I believe it to be true as well.

    My Father passed one year before my wedding. He was always a Bob Seger fan. He had ALL of the LP's back in the '70's.

    We hired a DJ for the reception, and after our wedding song, everyone was dancing for a good while. I gave him a playlist, and also told him to play some "fun" songs. (I'm not a fan of those, so I left it to him. Lol).

    After about 90 minutes, the dance floor had pretty much cleared out as people were sitting down to chat with each other, getting some more food, or just resting from dancing.

    Right THEN...... "Turn the Page" by Bob Seger started playing. I immediately walked over to the DJ, and asked him "Did someone request this song??"

    He said: "No. I just got back from the bathroom, and I have no idea how or why that song started playing........"

    The hair on the back of my neck stood up.
    It is no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk.

    My mother died 3 days after my 8th birthday. Soon after and on several occasions I had the exact same dream. She would appear while I was laying in bed. She would gently rub my forehead, smile and tell me how much she loved me. She promised to ALWAYS be there for me.

    I've gotten myself into situations many times over the years that I shouldn't have made it out of. Every time this childhood memory would immediately come to mind. I haven't thought about this in years, so thank you for the reminder.
    Mom, if your reading this I love you
