Signs and Hearts – #WordlessWednesday Linky
Do you believe in signs?
It was, in fact, Valentine’s Day when we took possession of our new home. As we were moving some boxes in, scoping out the rooms, my youngest daughter hollered: “Mom, come quick!”
This was on the rooftop of the house across the street. My youngest girl said: It’s Grandma. She’s been painting in the snow.
I have been moving through the last few months healing, but the physical and emotional challenge of moving from the house where I could literally picture my Mom in every room was a hard hurdle to get over. I had no qualms about leaving that house for a newer one with home office space in a nicer neighbourhood. My only obstacle all along was the fact that every time I packed something it reminded me in some way of my mom. Those of you who read this blog, or know me in person, know my Mother passed away unexpectedly sudden last May, right before Mother’s Day.
This was the most perfect thing I could imagine. As if she was saying I am here and I love you.
Have you ever felt, or seen a sign from someone who has passed away?

Home is definitely where the heart is, and it sounds like you’ve found that. Congratulations on your new home!
I definitely believe in these signs Paula. My dad died when I was quite young, Years later, when my son was a toddler and in the “afraid of strangers” phase, he was playing in the next room and suddenly started crying loudly for no reason. I rushed into the room, my son came running to me, obviously very afraid. I knew immediately what had happened because there was an overwhelming smell of my dad’s favourite aftershave….Old Spice. I am certain he had come to see the grandson he had never met.
A beautiful new home! It is hard when so many memories surround you but I am confident she followed you/ XO

Beautiful post. Even better photo.
Thanks for sharing.
Oh that is really lovely. I completely believe that loved ones that have passed often communicate with us in subtle ways like that.

I totally believe in signs! I believe your house was blessed by your mom! She approves!!!
How incredibly beautiful and uplifting. YES I do believe in signs – and this is DEFINITELY one from your mom.
I’m sorry to hear about your mom. I lost my mom when I was 17, and now 7 years later, I’m still healing. I’ll be praying for you *hugs*
