I am celebrating the “new life” of those who have transcended before us. A very dear friend of mine transcended into her new life in March of last year. I feel her with me everyday.
My friend had been very ill for a long time. Just a few days before her new birth, she asked me how I was feeling about what was happening to her. Was I OK? That’s my friend, Jodi, always concerned about the other person. She was a true angel living amongst us.
I shared with her that selfishly I didn’t want to say good-bye… then I said, ” I asked God to help me and all of us who love you so very much to be able to let go as God’s arms are open wide waiting to welcome you!”
I continue to celebrate her new birth. When I feel a teardrop in the falling rain, or hear a whisper amongst the rustle of the leaves, I know she is with me. When I feel the warmth of the sun, I always think of the warmth of Jodi’s smile. In the gentle breeze I feel her with me. If one snowflake touches my face, I believe she is giving me a kiss. That’s what angels do…
If you would like to share a story of encouragement, please write me. We learn from one another.
With much love,
