Life Is Fleeting

Life is fleeting. And if you’re ever distressed, cast your eyes to the summer sky when when the stars are strung across the velvety night. And when a shooting star streaks through the blackness, turning night into day… make a wish and think of me.

Robin Williams

Today marks two years since my Mom passed away. It feels like only yesterday and yet at the same time, it feels like years have passed since my sister and I were with her that fateful day. I awoke this morning at 5:30am, much earlier than usual, only to remember that two years ago, at that same hour, we were with her as she was transitioning. I wondered if on some level she had awakened me so I could be there to honor her at her hour. I spent the next hour in prayer, perusing through the multitude of photos and videos of our family, remembering the good times we spent together.

It’s a strange feeling to remember that you’re all alone. Only those of us who have lost our parents will understand that bereft feeling that startles you without warning. For so much has changed since she passed away. I’m still recovering from Open Heart Surgery and while my Mom wouldn’t have been capable to help me recuperate, it would have been lovely to have her here. To know that she was with me even if she couldn’t do anything more than pray for me. Thank the Good Lord that my parents gave me my sister for whom I am so grateful. She has been a Godsend to me.

I have learned that they are always with me. Even though I have many loved ones on the other side, I know they are around me. I can catch glimpses of them. I know our precious pets can too as I watch them track someone in the room who is invisible to the naked human eye. They know. They hear. They are aware of the loving energy that surrounds us.

I have a friend whose husband passed away and he makes his presence known in many ways to his still living wife. While you may not ‘believe’ in such things, I have born witness to some unexplainable events, coincidences and synchronicities that keep my faith strong in the belief that we are energy and those who have passed can communicate with those of us still here on earth.

I like this quote from Robin Williams especially because I’m a skywatcher myself and love to catch a glimpse of a shooting star as it streaks across the night sky. While I had never heard this quote before, I thought it was apropos. So tonight, you know I’ll be sitting on my front porch, watching the night sky.

Have you ever had any moments when you believed you received a visit from a departed loved one? I’d love to hear about them if you’d please share! Keep shining your heartlights!

Shine On!

  1. Please continue to heal and thrive! I woke up at 1:30 am and couldn’t get back to sleep for a couple of hours and that hasn’t happened for a very long time. I know i was a bit worried about kids flying back home from UK exactly at that time (UK time) but it was more than that, but I’m not sure WHAT. I understand totally, I miss my mom every day and she’s been gone for a long time. Take care, friend!

  2. These are so beautiful words Yvonne, you have touched that place of ‘let go’ so that there is only you and that connection to everything. And you also have had so much happen to bring it about. You’ve opened that line to God by opening as you have and now everything has changed, but in that you can now ‘see’ so much differently, so much clearer. Even nature around you has become something else, another profound part of what you are becoming.
    It is a bit hard to define anything that has happened to me as Spirit speaks to me regularly, but within that the love is so profound, the words bring joyful tears in hearing them…all simply because I now ‘know’ this journey has a purpose, and a very loving one. Your mom is in a magnificent place, not touching but actually a part of that love. It is hard to describe because it is indescribable…but the beauty that can be felt is so profound.
    And we will all be a part of it again, we are just separated at the moment so that we can understand that unconditional love we are made of when we ‘let go’ this world and become a part of it once more. It is like anything we read about, we will never truly know it until we experience it. And love…it has so many parts down here so we can experience all of them slowly to understand them fully…and in doing this we actually, finally ‘let it all go’ as we understand that unconditional love ‘just is’. But, like all else, we can’t just be told, we have to experience it all.
    Regardless dear lady, I send much love and light to you…may you heal, have faith and that happiness within it…but most of all, experience it all so that understanding of inner love transforms you ❤️🙏🏽

  3. Beautifully expressed! I have received so many validated messages that it can’t be denied anymore! There is no doubt that Spirit energy is just a higher, lighter energy that can be right around us always.
    I’m sure your mom’s Love is with you and helping you heal. I’m sending my love and light to you, too.
