I had commented previously on another story about my music box collection after reading another poster's story about music boxes. This story is not a scary story but a wonderful sign that I believe I received.
My mother and father are both passed. My mother passed before my father and my father passed about two years ago. It is very difficult to lose your parents, no matter what age you are. I mourn over my parents and it never gets easier but you learn to continue on with your life, knowing that is what your parents would wish for you to do.
After my father passed, we cleaned out his house and ultimately ended up selling it. I took a picture of my mother and father. It was in a frame and they both looked so happy in it. I set the picture frame on my end table in my bedroom and there it sat until this occurrence.
The day that this happened, I was in my bedroom making my bed. It happened to be my mother and father's anniversary that day so I was feeling rather glum. I was thinking about both of them, missing them and wishing they were here. All of a sudden I heard a music box go off. It played a tune I was not familiar with. I went to my area where I have all of my music boxes displayed. I opened up everyone and played everyone, trying to ascertain what music box went off. I could not hear it from any of them so I finally gave up and went back to making my bed. I heard my mom's voice, maybe in my head... Not sure, but she said, "You are not going to give up that easily are you?" And just then I turned to look at the picture of my mother and father. I walked over to it and picked it up. On the back of it was a wind up, which I had not noticed before. I turned it and sure enough, it was the song that had played... The song that played, "The Anniversary Song". I sat down and cried tears of joy, knowing that my parents had come through on their anniversary. Just another sign that life does not end when our body does.
