Before my husband passed while I was holding him and talking to him I asked that he send me a sign he is with me after his passing. Many people ask that lights go on or off....some ask for pennies to be found. But I wanted to ask him for something different....something that no one else would understand. I asked him to send me nuts, bolts and screws. And the reason for this is because he would "never" toss those things away. He always said to me.....you never know when you'll need one.
This morning I went into his closet and picked up his little travel bag. You know, the ones men use for shaving creams, razors and such when going on a trip. I started throwing some of the things away that I knew were quite old since we hadn't traveled anywhere in a long time...such as toothpaste etc. Then...in the very last compartment were "TWO SCREWS". There is no way in heck that he would have traveled with those......I know in my heart he put them there for me to find. Somehow after some tears and holding them in my hand close to my heart I just know he's telling me that he's here with me and everything is going to be okay.
I'm not crying right now.....I feel strength and love. I'm not alone....the love of my life is right here next to me.....taking care of me and loving me.
I'm going to save each and every one I find and keep them so that when I feel down I can open a little box and remember. Maybe a big box!
I'm going to be okay
