You know we hear about heaven and yet it is something that we just have faith in. Well, I have posted these on my cloud blog and on here before and they are just my absolute favorite of my cloud pictures.
These three pictures are not altered or touched up. The only thing I have done is change the overall size as these pictures are in the clouds but so far away that you can not see them without zooming in on a picture of the clouds to a place the size of a green pea.
I have not created the images you see in the clouds nor enhanced them. But I love them. The first one is the very first time I saw a face in the clouds and not only did I see a face…I saw a house or cabin. The larger picture has the head of what appears to be a young child….a boy. The smaller circle shows a cabin or house.
The second picture I think is a man’s head…profile looking down from the top of the picture. I was sitting just looking and there it was. I love finding these for it just says to me…yes there is life beyond here.
And this last one is a person with a hat on. The strange story on this figure is I have taken this figure’s picture two or three different times on different days….same hat and coat. Also, appears to be someone else with a hat in the smaller circle. Clouds do NOT make the shapes like these.
I love when people tell me they see their loved ones in these pictures. And I love that these pictures are there for us….in the clouds. And I loved that when Mama was here, she looked at my cloud pictures I have on the other blog and she could tell me what it was and I did not have to tell her.
Seems like I am not the only one that sees faces in the clouds. Check out this link. Click on link and then click the “NEXT” button to right of the cloud photo and keep clicking to see each one.
I am so overwhelmed today and so filled with gratitude that I am finding words hard to put together. I am sure some of you that know me well are saying “her not be able to talk?? Impossible”. I can talk, it is I just hope to make sense when I say all of this.
The coming weeks are stress filled for me and for son with all of this critical medical facing me and yet some very special people with huge hearts decided to make this easier. I only hope one day I can pay forward what they just did for us today. We were struggling to figure out how to get to Colorado Springs and where we would stay as there is no way I could have the heart catheterization, spend the hours required after in the hospital…after driving two hours to get there..and then drive two hours home. And we didn’t know what to do about Jack for he is a special needs dog that people do not want to have to take care of him for he requires special food, a special bed and really watching over and we didn’t have the money for a specialty clinic.
And out of the blue, a dear friend told me that they were getting us a motel room for not one but for two nights so that we could drive up the day before and I could rest. Traveling is really hard for me…even two hours. And they wanted me in the best shape possible to have the heart stuff done. I could not find the words to say what my heart was feeling. Words were not enough to express the gratitude and love I felt in my heart.
Not many people reach out in this day and time to help those that are going through tough times and stressful medical times. And unless you are there, you can not begin to know the despair of wondering will you have to do this in the hardest way possible? How will you manage? What will you do about this or that? And they understood the tears and despair I was feeling wondering what to do with poor Jack, who would not understand being put in a vet kennel, even if we could have afforded it. I had cried many tears trying to figure this out.
And then my dear friends Sassy and BOS just blew us away with their love and generosity and gift of the motel. But they didn’t stop there. They wanted to assure that the next few days were joyful, as stress free as possible and full of memories for son and I with such serious medical things about to happen. So, they sent son to the grocery and told him to ask for the manager. And the manager told him he had a gift card for him to buy Thanksgiving dinner. All son could manage to say was “Really???” “Really???” and I blubbered til I was going “he he he he” like a little kid does that has cried too much. Son came home with bags of groceries containing a big turkey that will provide sandwiches after the day is over and fruit and juice and pie fixings and all sorts of goodies. Oh my!
Our FIRST Thanksgiving in our new home and what a joyous day it will be filled with delights to fill the senses with memories galore from the wonderful smells that will go on with the turkey cooking and other foods and of course my special pumpkin pie that son will help me make but also with the wonderful Christmas lights son put up. Now there is a memory in the making for sure. Add to that wonderful holiday music and of course messaging and talking to loved ones and this holiday will go down in the hallmark of fame for the best ever.
And these two special people took us from having the heart stuff and the kidney surgery in the forefront of our lives to having this wonderful day of Thanksgiving right there in front of us..real and in 3-D. Talk about a change of focus. And the stress of what is coming has moved back a few steps with the motel reservations and the joy of the love of these two people has stepped front and center and the encompassing love has transformed our lives right now.
All day, I thought about the little girl named Virginia who asked the newspaper man was there really a Santa Claus. And his reply contained this line:
“Yes, VIRGINIA, there is a Santa Claus. He exists as certainly as love and generosity and devotion exist, and you know that they abound and give to your life its highest beauty and joy.”
You can read the whole story of Virginia’s letter and the editor’s answer here:
Oh yes, there is a Santa Claus AND there are Angels on earth, and the love and generosity and devotion of these two special friends have etched on our hearts in a way that no words can explain. We have a picture of Sassy out side last year at Christmas with a Santa hat on and that picture flashed before my eyes so many times today with the love Sassy and BOS bestowed on us.
THANK YOU Sassy and BOS from our hearts. We pray the love and goodness you did today comes back to you ten fold for you certainly deserve it. We LOVE you.
