Dime Signs

The Signs are real:
My hubby Chad just found an old recording of Mary talking to me on the phone - the last months in her life back in 2007/2008.  Hearing her voice was mesmerizing.... Like an angel was speaking.  Tears of love rolled down my face.  Such a beautiful sound.  I sat there in my recliner for a few soaking in this memory.  

Then I pushed the recliner down to get up and there was a dime right there at my feet!!!

Visit from Dad

The signs are real:
I sat next to a nice man on my first flight from Corpus to Dallas who looked so much like my dad I was a little shocked. As I was chatting with him, I was amazed at all the similar intrests he had to my dad too... As our quick flight was about to end, I wondered if by chance he had the same name as my dad.  I had to know!  I introduced myself and then held my breath....... until I gasped, as he said his name was David!  My dad's name too!! 
What a beautiful sign from above πŸ‘ΌπŸ™♥

Caring Cardinals - A Cardinal Experience

Cardinals of Love and Signs from Above 

On March 22, 2008, a little red bird flew to my side during the darkest moment of my life – I had just received the news that my sister Mary had lost her life. I was standing outside in the breezeway of my home, lost in grief when a beautiful red cardinal landed on the shrub in front of me. He took my breath away; he was such a vibrant sight. For a moment, my pain disappeared. The very next day I flew to Texas to prepare for my beautiful sister’s wake. As I was driving down the main road to the funeral home I couldn't believe what was flying right next to me. Not one, but two beautiful red cardinals, racing me to the home. The little red bird was just the beginning to the many signs and synchronicities that showed me that there is more after this life and there is more all around us.

A few months later, I started a blog titled in honor of my sister Mary because she was an AMAZING light of love. Her light shined wherever she was our entire life. I was three years older and felt blessed to be viewed as her star. I loved that she often called me her Silly Sis. She loved you before she knew you – it was in her DNA. In the early stages of blogging to my Mary, amazing things started happening. Signs were EVERYWHERE. I documented each amazing occurrence one by one and my faith grew as these confirmations revealed my sister was still with me. My grief lessened and hope prevailed. My little red bird kept appearing at crazy places and special times (along with making a home in my backyard), making her appearance to me along with fun synchronicities! I giggle just thinking about her.

I am alright today but feel sad at times when missing her physical presence, her amazing Mary smile that lit up every room she entered, and the loving energy she always radiated to everyone in her contact. Sharing my Mary's story has given so many people hope, so I will continue to cherish her memories and share her signs of love to help others heal from their loss too. Also, with a soft nudge from above, Little Red Bird Chirps was born on Facebook. It is a comforting place to visit that confirms what the little red bird is – a sign from above! 

Grateful, loyal and blessed to call Mary my sister.

More Mary comforts

I had been having a rough week at work, the transition has been hard.  I truly believe my Mary has been showing up to comfort me.

On my way to work this morning, walking from Penn Station, a homeless man stepped away from the wall towards me and smiled, then  held up a gold microphone to his mouth and said "Good Morning Mary" πŸ˜―πŸ™πŸ‘Ό

Mary Comfort

Oh, I had probably one of the worst days at work today, so bad it brought tears, but on the way out of the building I started chatting with a nice lady who was in the elevator with me and also leaving the building.... She was talking about  her cat 🀣🀣🀣.... A topic I enjoy.   Before we parted ways, I found out her name - it was Mary!!!

She's always there to cheer me up.  Amazing!! πŸ™πŸ‘Ό

Hello From Heaven

Just after I found and moved this lil black and white bird in the middle of the sidewalk, I looked at my phone and got this email..... My heart dropped! 
It ended up being from  a spam email BUT, I feel like it was a hello from Heaven!

Signs in the Nail Salon

I'm getting a pedicure by a Mary ️... As soon as I sat down, a song came on the radio that makes me think of my Mary everytime ("just the way you are" by Bruno Mars).... then one of my fave songs came on right after - a song that makes me happy every time I hear it.  ("Shooting stars" by One Republic) feel her presence with me.  Feeling so blessed right now!!!!!

Mary Monday

I got on the train this morning and grabbed my phone to show my ticket and this was randomly showing up on my screen. I didn't go to this website or this post. It just appeared. So, I will take that as a sign, a little #lovefromabove #MaryMonday πŸ˜ŠπŸ’—

Panera Bread - Signs

This was the board at Panera bread .... The preparer was shouting out "Jenni Mary" "Jenni Mary" "Jenni Mary" - I sat there stunned. I was looking at the board seeing my name Jennifer with my eyes but hearing "Jenni Mary" which led my mind to my sweet sister Mary, my lil angel above. It was a strange feeling seeing and hearing two different things.

I figured this must have been a fun lil visit from above ♥️ πŸ‘Ό #lovefromabove #signs #lovingmaryforever

Big Changes ~ Guided by Angels

Sometimes change is too hard to do yourself, so I believe that we get a little help at these times from our loved ones above.   I had been at my job for over 12 years and Loved it more than anything. Changes within the company were changing and I felt a stir within me that it was time for me to change too.   I was in denial and I didn't want to lose my happiness, my comfort and my place I worked at that I called my second home.  I was as loyal as they come.  I would peek around at opportunities, but that was it.  I couldn't do it. So....... my lil angel above had the opportunity come to me. 

Signs were showing up everywhere every time I got a call or email or text from this opportunity.  3:33, 333 and 7:23 were everywhere.  One by one, I began to meet the people I would soon be working for.  It was a slow process, but it happened just as it was supposed to. 

This new opportunity gave me the chance to take a month off in between - that in itself was a gift I needed after 12 long years of giving my all day and night to this job I loved with all my heart.  A chance to re-set and prepare for this next chapter in my life.

My final meeting was in Bryant Park, at the Carousel...... I said YES and we shook hands.

Good Friday Rainbow

🌈When you leave your house for work and discover a beautiful rainbow over you..... It's hard not to think it wasn't put there just for you.  A little well wish back to work after a long and scary flu trip. 

Happy Good Friday too ️!

Mary Signs

A few people wondered and asked me if i received any signs yesterday (March 22nd - the day my Mary went to Heaven)...... I usually do every year, but actually, my signs have been all month. Lil gifts I received that had hints of her presence in it.

I did receive this cardinal advertisement for a necklace from bradford exchange in the mail yesterday.... πŸ€” And a random Houston Rodeo membership card (not my name on it though) to my address here on Long Island and lil Niece Emma's Rodeo pic. 

One thing I loved about my Mary is how much she loooooves babies, always has since we were kids. It's comforting to think she is with Emma.
 — feeling blessed.

LRB Chirps

I will never forget the moment the little red bird came to me (3-22-2008)....... This was the beginning to the amazing journey I call my life today. My heart was shattered and my world was full of pain, but it wasn't long after that my faith was confirmed and I learned what really matters most. I live with this knowledge everyday and because of this, I smile from pure happiness, straight from my heart! I feel like I have a secret and want to share this with the world so we can all be happy.....

March is my Mary Month

This year marks 10 years since my Mary left us.  Her presence is very much felt and she sends signs all the time, but certain months she seems to show her presence more.  This month is one of those months...

It started with a random email I received from a client offering BOX tickets to a METS game on 3/31, the day before Easter this year (Mary past away the day before Easter 2008), playing against the CARDINALS!!  Ha ️....
Coincidence?  No way!

Then this:
I left my house to the beautiful song of a cardinal singing while another was just chirping. It was coming from the front and back trees.  I stood there in my driveway staring up into the trees. Smiling. πŸ˜‚My husband must think I'm crazy... Lol... But he's so good, he doesn't say anything.  He knows they bring me peace and hope - little reminders of what really matters.  For that, he keeps quiet, I know it.  So, I dedicate today to him!  My own National #ilovemyhusband day!

I also received random red roses today from a resident and tulips from a very close friend of mine.  This friend was there for me at Mary's wake and funeral like no other.  She was there like the dark eyed Junco is with the Cardinal. This friendship was new and it was then that I realized she was going to be my friend for life.  I consider all these randomness gifts from my Mary!!!

Oh and an out of the blue text from Mary's daughter, my beautiful Niece Kelsey saying she was thinking if me!

I am so blessed!

Cardinal Truck

On my way to the hospital for shoulder surgery..... And what do I see??? A cardinal truck!  πŸ‘Ό✨πŸ™ #lovefromabove #signs

It never fails, every single time in the last 10 years I've had to go to the hospital,  i receive signs that my Mary is with me.  I am not alone.   

Mary told me in a reading from a medium, that Lavender is healing.   Funny how the hospital gown happened to be a beautiful shade of lavender and the socks were a bright cardinal red.  

Nothing goes unnoticed when you BELIEVE!

Krispy Kreme Dream

I was telling my niece Kelsey about my Krispy Kreme dream I had and it sparked her to share some sweet memories with her mom and some signs she's gotten from her recently.  As we were texting,  I caught Kelsey's time she always sees (7:23) and now I do too.  It's so special that we both receive her signs and that we cans share it with each other.

2017! Live it ~ Learn from it and love it!


2017 πŸ€”

As I think back through this past year and reflect on the memories made and lessons learned, I smile, look up to the heavens and say Thank You! Thank you again...  

I've battled with some crazy health issues.  The kind of crazy where no doctors really know the answers.  Anything that has to do with the auto immune system becomes a big guessing game.  Good thing I'm a fighter with a pocket full of Hope. I'm doing pretty good these days and have learned alot! No more gluten, dairy and soy.  Amazing results! 

I can honestly say I love my life, everyone in it, the job I do and who I do it for!  Life is short, I know this to be true, so I'll keep on loving it and hoping you do too.  

To all my friends and family reading this: Thank you for being in my life and making memories with me!  

Happy New Year - live it, learn from it and love it one day at a time!
