On Friday I went and had my medical appointments at the VA. The news was not great, but I’m not dead, so there is always room for improvement.
After I finished that, I popped off to my daughter’s home, and played Words With Friends, while she finished up her work from home day!
I also played with her sweet puppy, Freya as we waited to go and pick up Savannah, and afterward drop her back at the house with her Daddy, so we could leave for dinner and a show.
After dropping Savi off, we drove to Nashua and went to one of our favorite Chinese restaurants. We ordered two appetizers and one meal that we split, Mandy had a fruity cocktail and I had my new drink of choice, a nice Scotch!
Then we headed to the John Edward Event, which was just down the street. Surprisingly, it wasn’t mobbed yet, and Mandy dropped me at the door and parked.
We entered the event, and Mandy eyed some seats, but just as we reached them, some people swooped in and took them. So we scanned the room, walked to the other side of the room and sat down.
The event started on time, and almost immediately John was talking to two women who sat just across the aisle from us.
Now here’s the thing, although many of the things he said resonated with the women, there were a few things that did not, and I believe the reading was seeping out, over to us. The items listed below he was so adamant about and when the ladies kept declining, I suspected they were for us.
Here are the things that he said that did not fit them, but fit us so perfectly.
- K name
- Died in a car accident
- Was organ donor
- June was an important month.
- Mentioned Roz, Rosa, Rosamond
- Parents passed. One from heart failure
- Dad was easier to get along with
- Mother was difficult
- Mentioned numbers 11, that repeat
During his reading, I felt a very overwhelming hotness inside. Not like a hot flash at all, but almost like I had a furnace radiating through my body starting from my stomach.
I tried to raise my hand to alert him about the organ donor aspect of the reading, especially when the women said no so many times. But he kind of waved me off.
But I am convinced that those words were for us.
- K name…My daughter Katie
- Died in a car accident… She did.
- Was an organ donor…Katie was
- June was important month….it is when the accident happened
- Mentioned Roz, Rosa, Rosamond…My mother’s name
- Parents passed. One from heart failure…true, Dad
- Dad was easier to get along with…yes
- Mother was difficult……yes
- Mentioned numbers 11, that repeat…Katie’s birthday month was November
Once he turned to read away from us, the hot feeling disappeared as quickly as it had come on me.
My daughter is more skeptical than I am. She mentioned that a lot of the reading did resonate with the other two women. And that is true, but I wrote down the things that felt important for us. So in that first 20 minutes, there were more things that made no sense to us, but to the other women.
But thinking back to when we arrived and how we had lost those first seats and moved closer to the woman who was selected for the first reading. made me feel that we were right where we were supposed to be.
At the very end of the event, I was chosen to ask a question of John. I asked him a question about the horrific ways people die. When they come through to him, do they talk or reveal much about that?
He said that Spirit does not want to be remembered for how they died but rather, how they lived.
So, people, I guess the biggest thing I got out of that one question, was I needed to move away from how Katie and my friend Candy have died, and focus on how beautifully, happily, they had lived their lives!
