".............Bake more pies OR ELSE!!............."


Just made my shopping list for tomorrow a.m. beginning at 6 a.m.:


4 black mats - you know those big black commercial looking mats they use inside doors that pets frequently go in and out of. These save me every winter when 8 snowy feet come in and out all day.


Next: New dog beds for my 2 senior citizens


Then last but not least: new screw driver set (mine always manage to disappear) + a stud finder+ a tool bag + booster cables + bungee cords & tie downs.


So exciting to be a home owner & pet owner.

Boy, you guys are mean! lol


I need some of those things too. Especially the stud finder for hanging pictures on the wall and screwdrivers.

I believe in it too but this is the first time it's ever happened.

When I was 11 my little 3 year old sister was killed in an auto accident. About three months later I woke up one night to see her sitting on the end of my bed. It didn't scare me or anything and she 'left' fairly quickly. I told my mom about it and she insisted I was 'dreaming', which I knew I wasn't. In later years she told me that she not only believed it was possible but she did believe me. I think my little sister came to let me know she really was 'okay' because I was totally devastated by her death. None of the adults around me ever gave it much of a thought about how I might be feeling/taking it.

I believe that departing souls are able to "say goodbye" across space and time. And I believe that it is not uncommon that the recipient senses something. If I may make a suggestion - when I was in a similar situation, I found it helpful to write a letter to my lost loved one. I wrote everything I had never gotten around to saying. I still have the letter. I don't re-read it often, but when I do, I cry. But they are tears of love and gratitude.

There are many really good people on these CD forums. You are one. <<HUGS>>

Thank you. So nice of you to say so.


I might write that letter. Over the past couple of years though I think we did a pretty good job of ironing out our 'differences'. She could be a real pistol and pain in the butt sometimes but she had a big heart.

Something like that happened to me when my grandfather died.


It was the evening after his funeral. Had a full house at my mom's. I was still in high school. Family was in the kitchen talking. I was snuggled in on the sofa sleeper - reading. I clearly heard my grandfather call out to me. His voice was very distinctive. He just said my name and nothing else. I can still hear it.

Isn't it odd when things like that happen. But oddly comforting in a way too.

We are the proud grand parents of newly born twin girls. Mother and twins are all doing well. Dad is doing well and they have a handful with a son just under 3,
