my Birthday Gifts from above

Birthday gift at 11 last night: Chad & I went outside for our last Honey walk for the night a little after 11pm and I couldn't believe my ears... There were cardinal chirps coming from the trees. I looked at Chad and said "do you hear that? Cardinal chirps!!! Birds sleep at night - wow!" Birthday chirps just for me  ~ thanks Mary!

another magical gift: I had a dream of my sister Mary last night. We were in gymnastics together in the dream looking at the height where the instructor put the bar on the wall for us to reach. I looked at Mary and said "are they crazy? That's impossible!" Mary just looked at it, studied it and said "Naw - let me try!" I raised my eyebrows and watched in wonderment as she not only reached the bar but did a back flip off the wall! LOL... That was our Mary..... Always reaching and exceeding giving is all hope! What a beautiful B-day gift! Thanks again sis 

Wonderful B-day news: mom went in to get her heart shocked today.......But.......they didn't have to shock her was in the right rhythm already! Woo hoo!!!

I had a wonderful Birthday this year!!!!!

Happy Birthday Mary

We will always celebrate your Birthday Mary - you live in our hearts and are attached to my soul!  
I feel your spirit everywhere and love all the signs..... thank you sweet sis!
Here are a few things we did to honor you this year:

Made mini cupcakes of your favorite cake & frosting:  vanilla with chocolate - mmmm
I found something special this year as I was buying the decorative treats.  As soon as I saw these lil bubble gum machine candies to top off the cake I knew I had to get them... they reminded me of this fun picture I took of you & David in the Galleria mall in Houston in front of the giant gumball machine.  We even had this picture framed for dad! It was just like you:  colorful, fun and sweet!  he-he
Memories to Cherish!
I found our favorite soda with your name on it in Target - on your B-day of course!
It was throw back Thursday on FB #TBT and when I used my timehop app to find the picture posted on this day a year ago... this is what came up :) ~ me & you sis back in 1995 celebrating our B-day week together.  LOVE this picture of us. 

Then I posted my Mary poem I wrote to you a few years ago:

I know your out there Mary
In the world we don't know
Giving me signs
Telling me you love me so
Not to worry
Not to be sad
Your in bliss - pure happiness
Staying close
To the ones who miss you
Showering us with your love
Making sure we know!
Your magnificent energy
Has touched many more souls!
Just like when you were alive
You continue to amaze me with
Your brilliance! Your pure love! Your radiant smile still shines from the sky!
Thank you precious Mary - my angel up high for touching so many lives!!!

I will always celebrate my Mary's Birthday. 
Celebrating your life ~ precious it was so full of love !

To top the day off, Kelsey sent me this picture showing me that she was honoring her mom's Bday by wearing her James Avery Mother ring and sand dollar bracelet.

Mary still Missed

I just love how Facebook not only keeps me connected to my friends and family, but also allows me to connect and stay in touch with my Mary's friends too.   Mary was loved so much and is missed by many.  It's sweet to see a random FB post where Mary is being honored and missed by her friends she left behind.

This one touch my heart - her friend Stephanie drew a love note to Mary, posted it on FB and sent balloons up into the sky.

Thank you Stephanie for loving our Mary forever!

College Bound Kelsey

I can't believe it... Kelsey is going off to college soon! She had a blast at the 2 day orientations.....I am so very proud of her.  We all are - I know her mom will be with her always wherever she is.   Kelsey connects her mom with the beach and going to college where the beach surrounds her brings comfort to her soul.

My cat RED

RED is the neighborhood stray cat that has somehow survived the brutal winter of NY this year... never letting anyone near him..... Until one day about 4 weeks ago - he let me take off the old flea collar on him that was choking him.  Since then he's adopted me.  He's friendly with all the cats and even Boo. I wanted to get him taken care of so with the help of my neighbors, we got him vet checked, shots and neutered.  My friend Stephanie in the complex agreed to keep him in her apt until we move to our house....
Then, on Fathers Day:
Well RED escaped and ventured back to my apartment...... guess he's claimed me! Sorry about the window Steph .... I'll get it fixed!
Fun lil synch: the vet didn't know his Bday so they chose a date: 12/7-----THATS my DADS BDAY! Lol - fun sign that Red is supposed to be mine!
Thanks DAD

I was looking through a few pictures I have of my dad - to post on face book tomorrow in honor of Fathers Day. For some reason this one stood out and picked itself.
With Mary to my left and my dad to my right - my two angels in my arms here!

- Love always & Forever!

Seahorse Synch

We were saying our goodbyes the day after Kelseys' Birthday and Graduation and I realized I had one more gift to give her.......a "just for giggles" seahorse ring I had been saving for her. It was given to me for her from our friend Danielle who has never met Kelsey or Mary, but became friends with me through synchronicity.
It was such a  celebration having all of her mom's family with her!!
It wouldn't be a complete trip without a sign from above to show Mary has been with us the whole time.

Kelsey got lots of seahorse gifts for her Birthday - the seahorse is a love she inherited from her mom -
How appropriate that my mom & I saw this truck on our way out of Beaumont! 
"seahorse transport"
This was our Mary Sign!
(if you add all these numbers on this truck - they equal 11 - our angel number!)

Mary Bear for Kelsey

So happy this bear came out so perfect from my sisters sweater ~
a very special gift for her Kelsey's graduation and 18th Bday!
...... tears of joy- then she said:
 "I LOVE this bear so much!  I can't wait to sleep with it every night!"
 A special message of love from her mommy above:
Dear Kelsey,
A small bear made from my sweater
To remind you of me,
I am with you always
Though you may not  see
The twinkle in my eye
As I watch you from above
I am proud of all you are doing
And I hope that you know
My love for you continues to grow.
Love, Mom
