True love never ends
While many of my friends are watching football this weekend I am reading The Afterlife of Billy Fingers. It is interesting how many things in the book fit what I have already experienced, mostly the communication with deceased souls. Reading this book brought back a memory of a conversation I had with such a person. The story was previously posted in February 2013, just before Valentine's Day. Because that time of year is rolling around again I am re-posting it for all the lovers out there who might believe that leaving earth is the end of their relationship. Saturday, February 9, 2013 Fulfilling a request It has become my habit to use the time between waking in the morning and actually getting out of bed to have quiet conversations with spirits not physically present in my bedroom. Sometimes it is direct communication with my Creator, other times it may be with a close living friend and still other times it could be with a soul no longer occupying a human body. Today it was a combination of all three, none anymore important than the others. This morning I received a request from a good friend who left earth in 2007 after a long battle with diabetes. Her name was also Barbara and we met around 1995. She was a wonderful, strong, funny role model for the entire community, even after her disease began taking her limbs. I have never known a more powerful soul. She never let anything stand in her way when she wanted to do something- anything! Barbara has been mentioned in almost everything I have written. It was not until her death that I realized just how strong of a spiritual relationship we had/have. I believe that she chose me, while still living, to keep an eye on her beloved husband, John for her. She was the kind of person who would not hesitate to celebrate a holiday by cooking up something special. Since her death I have baked goodies for him off and on, making sure he understands it is because Barbara would if she could. Those two had a unique relationship that would put most people's marriages to shame! This morning my wonderful friend, Barbara, asked me to give John a Valentine gift from her. It was a very specific gift. I tried to talk her into just getting a chocolate heart, but she wouldn't go for it. So sometime in the next couple of days I will be baking a batch of sugar cookies in the shape of a heart with cinnamon pieces on top. It must mean something special to them and I am happy to be of service. Author's note: It was not until the cookies were baked with 3 cinnamon candies placed on each one that I realized they formed a smile. I of course, shared the creation story with John. He later told me he couldn't help smiling every time he ate one.
