Robins of Love

My friend Melissa shared this most wonderful experience with me and thought it belonged here on my Mary blog to keep and share - its a beautiful example that we are not alone - our angels are everywhere!  

"Thought you'd get a kick out of this..we had a visit today from a flock of robins.....
Right after my mom, dad and I had a lomg conversation about my life goals and careers. This was our sign that we have loads of guardian angels are looking out for us and will guide me in the right direction. It was comforting. Thought of you...... Melissa DiMecurio"

Lightly White Christmas

We prayed for snow while the kids were here in NY for Christmas... Christmas Eve we got a few flakes :)!   We were happy for that.... this picture is so beautiful of Kelsey ~ I can feel her mom's spirit in it!

For some reason this poem I found on FB seemed to fit for this blog post in perfect timing - Kelsey has been missing her mom so much!  I feel like Mary has nudged me to post this for her xoxo.

Mary Memory

I just LOVE how Mary's memories are being cherished all they time! 

Her friend/classmate Jennifer Grammer has brought a glow to my smile that 
radiates from the warmth I feel in my heart.  She posted this fun little find on 
my FB wall Saturday 1/11/14 - I shared it with Kelsey and it made her smile too ~ 
She had never seen this picture before and was blown away by how much she 
looked like her mom here back in 1986 - love the black and red checkered shirt :)!  
So cute!  Actually I think that was my shirt - LOL

Thank you AGAIN Jennifer for also sharing this beautiful Angel poem with loving words of Mary to me, I can't tell you enough how special this is to me!

Messages of love from our Mary up above!

A Little Red Bird

Through pain a light shined down and comforted me with signs, synchronicities, visits, divine connections and a true sense of hope - of a knowing!
A Little Red Bird started it all.

A Christmas Story - full Circle

This "Mothers Love" ring by James Avery was given to me for Christmas from Kelsey and Brett.  It is one of the greatest gifts I've ever received, but it wasn't just the gift itself,  it's the words they wrote in the card, the meaning behind the ring and then the magic that happened when I posted a picture of it on facebook.

Jeni, Mary, Chistie, Kelsey 
It's an amazing story... a full circle with this ring.  It goes something like this:  The kids gave it to me,  I posted a picture of it on facebook and then Mary's friend Christie saw it and emailed me a copy of her wearing the exact same ring - she said Mary had given it to her when she had visited with her  just months before she passed away, Mary had told her it was a special ring and it was for great moms. Christie said she felt like Kelsey should have the ring that once belonged to her mom. She mailed it to her immediately, along with some pictures and a little memorabilia work out watch Mary used when she coached Christie.

So now Kelsey and I share this "Mother's Love" ring ~ another James Avery connection we both have with her mom!  Just beautiful ~ magical!

Well.... there's actually another lil sparkle to this story:  the ring Mary had and gave to Christie was actually given to Mary by her BFF since Jr. High, Kerri!  We know this because of the engraving inside the ring which read: ."Luv Ker BFF"
Just wait until Kerri finds out what this beautiful gift she gave to Mary years ago and how it has brought such magic to our Christmas this year!  

I will cherish the words Brett & Kelsey wrote in this card like a treasure:

I'm so grateful for so much love and so many connections to Mary I have in my life.  It is such a blessing to be so connected.  True gifts in my life!  Thank you Christie AND Kerri for your love and memories of our Mary!
