KathyG Posted December 23, 2007 Report Share Posted December 23, 2007 I've been a walking mess of tears all week and reached my lowest point this past Friday. It was the one-month anniversary of Bill's death. I had just attended my first meeting of a grief support group, and came away feeling even more depressed after hearing everyone else's sad stories. And everyone else at work was being relentlessly jolly because of the long Christmas weekend.Then yesterday morning, when I went to the front door to fetch the morning paper, the sunlight made something shiny on the floor glow. I couldn't imagine what it was because I had just cleaned the floor the day before, but I bent down to pick it up. There, inside a little plastic bag, was an egg-shaped Lucite "stone" with a message embedded inside: "Miracles happen to those who believe."I had never seen this thing before, and no one was in my house yesterday but me and my dog. So I thought, what else can it be except a gift from Bill? I can't explain it any other way. This is not the first time he has sent me messages since he died. I think he wants me not to despair and to know that he's still with me - only I just can't see him. No matter where my "stone" came from, it made me feel less sad and alone.
