No matter what you believe, many of us have times where we are touched by a strong presence; a presence of a loved one who is no longer with us.
Is this a spiritual connection?
Is it hope… a memory… an angel?
Is it god?
Today I was running around doing errands and I was stopped, stopped hard in my tracks. The presence of my grandmother (my Nana) was stronger than it’s ever been since she passed last year.
I felt like she was with me. Sending me a message… giving me a hug.
I was literally blown away. I sat down and just started weeping. Weeping because we connected. A happy cry – reminding me how much she’s still so present in my life… my thoughts… our family traditions.
Maybe this happened because I am finally getting around to putting our wedding thank you cards together? (She had already passed when we married, but I always think about her as I know how excited she would have been to be there).
Maybe it’s because Christmas is next month and I would normally be thinking about when I’d see my Nana and what I’d be making her for Christmas (she had a serious sweet tooth and loved home baked goodies over the holidays).
Or perhaps, it’s because she is part of me… in my make up, in my heart… and soul.At times we are touched by a strong presence of a loved one who is no longer with us. Click To Tweet
She wasn’t a perfect woman – who is?! In fact, she was darn stubborn! Stubborn because she wanted to do it all on her own. She was a proud, strong and independent woman. This was always her focus. Even as she grew older, more feeble and her body was weak, her personality and determination were always strong! This still puts a smile on my face.
Nana, Thank you for sending me little reminders of our times together. You remind us that you will not be forgotten, that you love us and that you made a big impact in our lives. Thank you for all the little things you shared and continue to share. Even though you are no longer part of this world, you will always be a part of me.

Do you have a spiritual connection with someone you’ve lost? Do they make reappearances in your life and send you little reminders that they are watching over you?
I would love to hear about your experiences and encounters with loved ones you’ve lost. Tell me about it in the comments section below.
P.S. Recently I have two people in my life who’ve lost their moms. One very unexpectedly and one who’d been battling with a horrible disease. My heart goes out to you both and I hope in time you will begin to heal xoxo
