The Signs Are There If We Pay Attention

 

I am very fortunate to be the Granny of two beautiful little girls: Zoe 5years old, and Emily soon to be 7 months old. They are the lights of my life and I share their antics to whoever will listen! One person I would love to be able to share with is my Dad, but unfortunately, he passed away several years ago. I miss him terribly, and thoughts of him have been growing on my mind since Emily's birth. I find myself wishing he was here so that he could get to know them, too.

April 22nd is his birthday and this year, like I said, my thoughts are full of him. On this day, I went to my Facebook page to wish him happy birthday. Well, our internet isn't always the best, so I had to wait for the page to load. As I was waiting, I glanced down at the floor and there beside my chair was a tiny white feather. We don't have anything in our house with feathers in it. I thought he came for a visit, and was trying to comfort me. Now, understandably, I also thought it could have been a coincidence, but I cried for 15 minutes, none the less.

Today is May 21st. The 22nd is the anniversary of his passing and once again, the thoughts are growing. We will be moving into another home shortly, and my husband needed some of my pay for our new landlord, so I cashed my check and decided to go home for lunch. (We live very close to my job) When I go home for lunch, I never take my purse with me (not real bright, I know) so I threw my cigarettes, cell and money in the passenger seat. Well, I thought better of that, and tucked the money under my leg. I drove out of the parking lot and down the road not even 1/10 of a mile and looked down to check my money. There, on my lap, was a tiny white feather! I had to return to work, so crying was out of the question. I laughed all the way home.

Today, May 23rd, I came home from work and went upstairs to change. I had placed the two feathers on my computer desk earlier this morning. When I switched on my monitor, I saw on my mouse pad, a tiny white feather. I thought one of them had blown there, since the window had been open the night before. But they were exactly where I had left them. Now I have three. Yes, guys: three!

Now I know he is getting to know my grandbabies! And when I think of him from now on, I'll laugh.

I love you Dad, and I miss you!

Lol Granny, I just passed this account of yours on to another one of my friends - last night in fact. She and her Mom have also been having 'experiences' with feathers, since their sister/daughter passed away in January.

I just thought it would be nice for them to read the 'original' that I came across - they say that they enjoyed it immensely, and now have a better 'view' of the situation, thanks to you! ❤

Hi Granny

Was just reading the story and realized your profile says you now have 3 grandchildren...
I wonder if the 3rd feather came around the time your 3rd grandchild was announced?
Maybe it was just a coincidence?

Fergie: Thanks for the congrats!...As you can see by this thread alone, it's sometimes been quite a rough ride 😆...All worth it though...

I have very fond memories of my Dad... His heart was as big as Texas... He loved all of his grandchildren and great-grandchildren...I was the youngest of my family, so he didn't get to see my oldest's kids... But my Mom's still hangin' in there, and probably will for quite a while yet!

Thank you for reading, and for your kind words! ❤

Hi Granny, I have not read the other posts yet. I just want to add my congratulations to the others, on your 2000th post. Thank you for being 'one gutsy lady' and taking on the mamoth task of being a Mod.
I too, had a very special relationship with my dad. He was also 'one in a million'! He even took me overseas with him, when I was 4 years old, for six months. Only him & I, no nanny or anything!
I am so happy for you, that you could get validation, that he was still looking out for you & your family. ❤

Hi zzsgranny, this story is beautiful it brought tears to my eyes. I miss my father too. I wish I could get a sign like that. Strange how a message can be send from heaven without a phone call if you know what I mean? Thanks for sharing this wonderful story. Enjoy your day. Trix ❤

What a wonderful story - your dad has left you signs that he was there - that he IS there for you. He knows that you miss him and he is there to comfort you. I have a picture of my dad on my dresser and when I'm feeling stressed out or just need to talk things through - I take my dads picture and talk to him - some people may think this is crazy - but it makes me think that Dad is there listening to his daughter - whine and complain about life - and I feel that he is there with his arms around me patting me on the back and letting me know that everything is all right. I hope this makes sense - I'm typing very fast - because I need to take Ryan to work 😆

Shinigami: I forgot to mention that the "drop bears" actually have a fan page on facebook... Just put it in the search bar...You'll get a lot of good info there... I found it after our Australian friends, AussieDaz and DARKNESS, told us about them on here...It's a hoot! 😆 😆 😆

Haha, ok. Kind of like the theory my friends and I have called "sharks are a myth". To us, the only sharks that exist are the ones that live in the Gulf, get drunk on tequila, and eat tourists.

Gotta love when crazies get together and come up with ideas! 😆

Shinigami: A "drop bear" is a mutant koala bear, that waits in the eucaliptus trees of Australia for unsuspecting tourists to walk under, and then they drop down and viciously attack the tourist! 😆...It's all BS, but it makes for great fun for the Aussies to scare the poop outta people 😆

My Dad had a deep appreciation for nature, and he instilled that in myself and my brothers... I think the eagle was his favorite bird, but I just believe this was his way of saying that he was there... I some how connected the white feathers as a sign from an angel, which I know he is! 😊 and the fact that he had been on my mind so much...

Thank you for reading, and for commenting!

Ok, sorry to hi-jack your comment page, zzsgranny, but this is driving me more insane than I already am. I've seen it mentioned a lot on comments, but what in blue blazes is a drop bear?! 😆

This is such a sweet story! Did he have a favorite bird that had white feathers?

Maybe its his way of saying 'thank you' for caring so much, as well as a way of saying he's with you and in a way, sharing family experiences.

Thank you for sharing! 😊

Thanks granny, and I think you're right about the mods letting the inmates run the asylum for a while. LOL! 😆 I just hope things get better soon.

That's exactly what I was thinking. A remake of the Mod Squad, Starring zzsgranny. LOL! Luv It 😊 ❤
