My mom ascended back in 2004. This is when something substantial was reawakened in me. I seemed to have received a spiritual boost of some kind.
On the day that she died I lost many things. My perception of reality was turned upside down. Those who I thought were family fell by the wayside. First, my dad said he would not come to the funeral. Then my cousin Lisa retracted her invitation to bury my mom in the family plot. Through this I found myself alone on the day my mother died sifting through six inched of snow while trying to uncover cemetery markers. I was not in my happy place, but I did get through it.
Latter on that day I decided to go to Burlington Coat Factory to buy a new suit for the funeral. I requested sales assistance and to my surprise a women named Anita came to help. That is my mother’s name. It was odd since it is so rare and throughout my entire life I only met one other woman named Anita.
The day after the funeral I would experience a similar occurrence. While sitting in the customer lounge area of my building I witnessed the introduction of a tenant and one of his customers. “By the way my name is Anita.”
Finally, I would experience the voice of a mother calling out to her daughter a day later. “Come back here Anita.” Coincidence? I have learned that these so called “coincidences” do not exist. They are all linked to signs and guidance. In this case it was mom letting me know that she was with me and everything was going to be all right.
Challenging times, are good testing grounds to give us a reality check, of fair weather friends in our lives…
True that sister!
