Today would have been my mother’s 90th birthday and I miss her so much! It’s the first time in my life I haven’t sent her a birthday card, but I feel her presence all around me. Last night, this sign fell down on the floor from behind a chest of drawers. I made it last summer when we couldn't visit my mother in the nursing home due to Covid 19, and I forgot that I kept it!
We took a picture of me holding this sign, so my mother would have a tangible reminder that she was loved and know that I was thinking of her, even if we couldn’t be together. My mother kept this photo by her bedside, and now I have it next to mine.
When this sign “fell down” last night, I was pretty sure it was my mother sending ME a sign that I was loved and she was thinking about me, even though we couldn’t be together to celebrate her birthday.
I do believe the Universe always sends us signs, reminding us that we are loved. So, if you are missing a loved one today remember to look for the signs!
If you’ve lost someone you love, you may be struggling with grief and sadness and then it’s hard to look for the signs. Or, if you are grieving, you may feel disconnected from your spiritual beliefs right now, and have lost a lilttle little faith in signs. Navigating through grief requires support, so I’d. be honored to walk with you on this journey.

I’ve always loved the word Delight! To me it means “of the light” and with all the darkness and fear in the world today, I wanted to create a place where we can gather together, restore our connection to the light and help one another to Delight The World with love, kindness, gentleness, beauty, compassion and grace. —Amy Rose, LCSW
