He Wanted To Be There, Too

 

I'm so happy to announce the birth of my second grandchild on October 26th. Her name is Emily Michelle, and she is perfect. She looks just like my daughter!

My daughter had a c-section, so my youngest son and I were on the way to the hospital at around 6:15, or so. Since we would not be able to smoke in the hospital, I told JR that we should have one before we got there because once inside, I was not going back out until after the baby was born.

I rolled the window down, and a few minutes later, it rolled itself back up! I thought it was my coffee cup, leaning on the button, so I moved it. The window went up again! Now, I have never had a problem with the window before so this was really weird.

I tried to roll it back down, and every time I did, it immediately would go up. I told JR that the ghosties wanted to come, too. So I said out loud and sternly," Okay, you can go, but do not possess the grandbaby!" The window would not stay open. So I rolled down the back one.

At the hospital were a lot of family and friends of my daughter and son-in law. While we were in the waiting room after they had taken her into surgery the lights started to flicker. Not just flicker, but dim for a few seconds, and then brighten. This happened a number of times, and my son-in-law's mom said, "seems like someone wants us to know they're here by the way these lights are acting." JR looked and me and smiled.

Everything went as planned, and soon Baby Emily was here! We waited until we could see her and hold her a few minutes, and decided to give mom and baby some rest. It was some how decided that I was the taxi that day, so we all piled in my little Land Rover. Zoe had already left with her other grandmother so we all lit up. Guess what? No more problems with the window since.

That night, I had a dream. Leslie's Dad was rocking baby Emily, and chatting with Zoe, who stood right next to him. He had the biggest grin on his face!

Zzsgranny, I was just reading your stories and see you're from my hometown, kinda. I was born in the 60's at St. Rose de Lima hospital in Henderson. Raised in Henderson, graduated from Basic HS. Moved away in 1990. Went back once in 2006 and had the shock of my life with how much it had changed.

granny - on a serious note, though, what more valid proof could there possibly be? Three years and no more problems. Coincidence? I think not. "He wanted to be there, too." ❀

Granny: It doesn't work that way! Nicotine is like any other drug, you have to be weaned, slowly. To go 'cold turkey' can be hazardous to your health!
I managed to get down to 2 a day, at one stage, but then things started to go haywire in my family. Then, POOF... It all went out the window! There was I, back to 20 a day, in one fell swoop! But one day... πŸ€” who knows?
Your daughter's account is great; so sweet. If only this silly network will let me post on her story!

I searched about white feathers and got this lyrics, as to why the windows being "closed" as to get smoke in your eyes.

The Platters
Smoke Gets in Your Eyes Lyrics

They asked me how I knew
My true love was true
Oh, I of course replied
Something here inside cannot be denied

They said someday you'll find
All who love are blind
Oh, when your heart's on fire
You must realize
Smoke gets in your eyes

So I chaffed them and I gaily laughed
To think they could doubt my love
Yet today my love has flown away
I am without my love

Now laughing friends deride
Tears I can not hide
Oh, so I smile and say
When a lovely flame dies
Smoke gets in your eyes
Smoke gets in your eyes

~~~

I don't think that it is literally meaning my "love went away" it is like just you "think they have gone away"... And when a lovely flame dies (a person you you loved dearly, who shone a bright light in your life), it is not like when the "love" dies since love is eternal, but about "when the person" dies... Leaves the physical.

In the first part of the song, the singer describes how he was in love, but his friends just told him he was blind to the truth; "When your heart's on fire [a metaphor for being in love] / You must realize / Smoke gets in your eyes". The fire in the singer's heart is creating smoke which is making him blind.

Yes the lesson here to me is that when you love someone greatly love is blind, the "smoke of love's fire" gets in your eyes... To me this is a great poetic metaphor, since the Bible says we must walk by faith and not by sight, by believing in things we cannot see instead of just believing in what we can see.

So to when your Heart is burning with Love, Love is the Bridge between Heaven and Earth... So Light the Fire and let the smoke blind your physical sight, so that you can only see with your Heart or Love.

Opening and closing windows are like opening and closing portals... Which is odd why did they want the windows up or closed?

Hi Granny, I know this is a bit late, but none the less, congratulations on the latest additions to the family. It is always exciting to have a birth in the family.
Your ghosties didn't want you to smoke! Did you ever manage to give up that filthy habit? If so, please tell me your secret! I have been smoking for 54 years, & wish I had the willpower to quit. πŸ€” πŸ˜‰

DARKNESS: Emily and Zoe are both doing very well, thank you, and looking forward to the birth of Sophia Marie on September 12th 😁...

Since the "Santa" incident we've moved, and last Christmas I got to go home for the Holidays, so I think my ghosties didn't feel the need to cheer me up πŸ˜†...That was funny πŸ˜†

And no, I haven't quit smoking yet, but all the signs are telling me I should...

granny: My daughter's father had accompanied me to the hospital when our daughter was born. I brought an 8x10 picture of him in a frame to use as a focal point when the pains got really bad. But I feel as though he was also there in spirit. Great story! Peace and Love ❀
