Pier One hello

Got a Fishie from Mom last Saturday. I was at Pier One picking up a bed frame I had on hold under my name, Elisabeth.

The older British woman looked me dead in the eye and said, "Barbara? It's on hold for Barbara?"

I blinked and said, "No, Elisabeth."

She laughed and said "I don't know why I have Barbara in my head."

Apparently because she really had Barbara in her head.

Thanks for the Fishie, Mom.

I love this. I don't think anyone will ask me if something is on hold for Laurianne though. lol! But I have had other signs.

Would you consider putting Laurianne's Hope on your sidebar? I have that blog under a different user account.

About a week after my mom passed, I was up in Traverse City (my mom's true home) and in the night I was woken by the distinct sound of my mom's voice. She simply said "Jill?" and I don't know if I replied out loud or in my head, but I said "Yes?" And then she said "I love you." Call me crazy, but it's true.

OK, I have one for you.

My dad's father was a smoker. Even before he died, if I smell a certain chemical of the cigarette, I think of him. After his death, I would somtimes smell smoke in my house, that my husband doesn't smell, and I think of him then also. (We are both non-smokers.)

Two days ago, I was sitting in our computer room, and I smelled cigarette smoke. I didn't ask my husband if he smelled it, because I knew he would say no. But I always think it could be Opa, checking up on me and seeing how I am doing.

I'm waiting for a fishy from my dad. I'm on network tv for the first time, 10 months after he's gone. He would have loved it. I'm sure he IS loving it.

My mum died of lung cancer in May. I was out at a party the other night and got a wee bit drunk and, in my alcohol fuelled dream state, decided to phone her. She answered. I was thrilled to hear her voice, of course! Then, on twigging I was more than two sheets to the wind, she suggested I call back when I was sober and we could have a proper chat! That was so my mum. I tried to force myself back to sleep so I could get through again but the connection had gone.
Next time I'll lay off the red wine!
