Flowers From My Grandmother


My grandmother or "Memow" whom I was very close to passed in July 2010. She fought a long, hard 10-year battle with breast cancer. She was 86 years-old when she fell in her bedroom and broke her hip. Her bones had been weakened by chemo. She was very upset that she had to spend her final two months in a nursing home but none of us were qualified or able to give her the constant care that she needed and we all had jobs. We each took turns taking vigil in her room before she died and she was surrounded with love.

My grandmother was my inspiration and role model. She babysat me when I was young and she taught me how to read and write at age 3. We were extremely close and I told her everything. My mother even wondered at how close I was with my memow. She, herself and Memow had not been nearly as close.

After Memow passed and the funeral was held there was a very warm feeling in her house. Miraculously flowers everywhere inside and outside of her house started exploding in blooms. Even flowers that were not due to bloom started blooming as did flowers that had not bloomed for years. To this day, many flowers are in bloom around the house every summer--many more flowers than there were previous to Memow's death. I cannot describe how comforting it is. My mother's late friend, Jackie Torrence who is a well-known storyteller told Mom that loved ones will come back to us as birds, flowers, dragonflies, etc.

I was going through a very hard time in my life when my memow passed and it was so good to know that she was OK. I believe that she looks out for the family and my grandfather who is a ripe 92 years-old and still going strong. My mother set up an email account for my grandmother and we write emails to her. I feel that she receives them. It is comforting, nonetheless. Has anyone experienced similar? Thank you for reading!

❤ That was a very sweet story. ❤ Thank you for sharing! You were certainly right when you said it was comforting to know that your granmother was ok. The flowers blooming around her house were definetly a sign that she was happy. 😊 I've had an experience that was similar to this. Isn't it fascinating how nature can communicate with us?

SirenBelva - I also have heard that our loved ones can come back as birds, flowers, etc and what a beautiful tribute you pay to your Memow. I do believe she gets your emails.

There's a story on here you might like. Although it's not about flowers, it's the same premise and it's a beautiful story:

Beautiful story. Thanks for sharing. I believe that loved ones, or at least, some part of our loved ones stay behind after their souls have passed into the next life.

Sweet story.
I have nothing like that, but a flower-story nonetheless. My grandma died back in 2002 and her boyfriend (seems silly to say boyfriend, I know, but they never got married and he wasn't my granddad) gav my mom a plant for her garden. For a while it seemed to be dying, but 8 months after his death, exactly on his birthday, three flowers blossomed on it.
So yes, those who leave us can manifest a "hello" in any way 😊
