I just came back from spending the weekend with my mom. She and my dad would have been celebrating their wedding anniversary this weekend. This is the first anniversary and Father's Day since he passed. We miss him. Our family is also now facing some really difficult things in the months ahead, and it is strange knowing my dad isn't here to face them with us. But he and my mom were so much a part of each other, that I can still feel his presence very strongly through her. It was so special, such a privilege, to spend this time with my mom .... laughing, crying, reminiscing and making new memories.

I am so happy you had this experience. It is just an inkling of what it will be like in the next life, IMO, Pleroo. Nothing we love can ever be taken from us.

<<< --- If that seems like a trite response, it's not meant that way. Sometimes, for me, emotions and gratitude can't be expressed well with words.

It was taken in the Spirit that is present within you.

I just received the news that one of those "difficult things" I mentioned, has come upon us much, much sooner than any of us expected. My heart aches. So much heartbreak in the past months. I know it's simply a part of the human experience, and time will bring healing. But today is a day for tears.
