Between here and there...
The last week has been a challenge for me. Tossing and turning at night is nothing new for me, but the last couple of weeks I've done a lot of that! So...it was with much amusement at 3 AM I noticed a little flickering light going off and on in my room. Nothing paranormal about it. I had a visitor from this realm called a lightning bug...or fire fly, depending on which part of the country you are from. And he wasn't the first one this week. His relative had come visiting a few nights before and I had escorted him to the front door.

I wasn't feeling up to a jaunt across the house, so I watched this guy flit around lighting up like a phone tower flashing away. I began thinking what fun God must have had coming up with this guy and his lit up body. There in the dark I lay, fussing and fretting, and here was this little bug just going about lighting up my evening. Long story short, I saw the lesson in that. So I got out of bed, caught the little guy carefully, and sent him off to join his family outdoors.

God/Spirit...choose your name...can send messages in small packages. Don't blink...you might miss the lesson.
 
One of the fishing days over holiday we got to spot where we wanted to latch onto some bass. I grab my pole, get ready to cast and a baby dragonfly lands on my hand. The little guy just sat there as if staring at me lol. Profound moment, probably not, but those little moments are pretty cool.
 
Last day of vacation i treated myself to breakfast out. I got into a conversation with old guy next table over. While chatting about misc construction talk, i kept watching the bulb blinking on and off at the table behind him. As i finished eating and got my check, i asked the waitress...Led bulb or ghost?...as i pointed at the lamp lol. Normally people give an odd response, but she smiled largely and said ghost lol.

Sometime not so long ago, I had loaded up my truck for the day and was headed in. I opted to leave from the back entrance of the warehouse today, and in between the warehousing units, there was a large pool of water towards the entrance/exit of the gate. I noticed a dragonfly out of the corner of my eye, and honest to God - he/she matched its speed of my truck perfectly. It flew parallel by me until I exited. My grandmother and mother both loved these insects, so I'm reminded of them every time I see one.

And I don't mean to go on and on about this, but shortly after my mother died, I went to visit her grave. It was a hot, but beautiful and there was a light breeze blowing. I was alone but I had a rather interesting group of visitors. I saw a lone Monarch butterfly, a Hummingbird and a small group of dragonflies - also her favorite. It was peaceful there, but I also was strongly reminded of her. I simply thought, 'She's still here.' And I felt fine. Any self-doubt or worries - disappeared. The ones we love aren't truly gone; I think.

That's an awesome moment and memory LW. Those small moments are worth stopping and observing...especially when it reminds you of someone.

I really have to sort through my pictures. I took the last few i had left on roll before dropping off for development. It was extremely foggy that morning just before sun came up. I made my way to lake to get some fishing in before i went back to work the following day. Just as i got to lake, the sun blasted through the thick fog. What an awesome sight. One of my favorite pictures from that vacation.

Those are signs in my opinion. They find ways to let us know they are still with us. Thanks for sharing that. It also gives others hope in seeing signs as well.
