Both of my parents had long and productive lives. Together and separately, they experienced the breadth of life’s sorrows and the not-so-obvious joys.
For about twenty years, my mom was bent over, the result of a back injury and severe osteoporosis. She did not complain about this burden, but she did not like photos that showed her condition. This picture was taken eleven years ago and is of mom with her identical twin; the difference in height tells the story.
During mom’s last hours of life, she could barely speak but she whispered, “I don’t know what to expect next.” I shared the documented cases of near death experiences and talked of the love that would surround her and how she would meet her loved ones. I also asked her to send me a sign from heaven.
A couple of days after mom’s funeral, my friend Nancy, a strong intuitive, called to offer her condolences. As I was sharing, Nancy interrupted and said, "Your mom is here. She is telling me that she can stand up straight now and her back does not hurt. What does that mean?"
Stunned, I described my mom’s back condition, and after a few tears, we both knew that mom had sent her sign from heaven.
