She was thinking of me tonight, I know because I found a little red glitter star on the kitchen tile.
I told Hubby that Kerrigan was thinking of me tonight, he said where did you find the red glitter star.
Okay this is what that means, when she was 18 months old she came for Christmas here from Chicago, that was the year I was very ill and dying. She would get in bed with me and we would snuggle and I would read until I fell asleep, she would then get up and go play.
One afternoon she got into the Christmas decorations and I had a little tubes of little glitter stars there, in gold and red. She got the red ones and spilled them on the carpet, no big deal her Mommy just vacuumed them up and that was that all cleaned up.
Well the following year I found two little red glitter stars on the dining room floor, strange but I told Hubby that Karrigen was here visiting and we just chuckled.
Last year I found three red glitter stars in the living room on the carpet close to where she originally spilled them, okay you say no big deal right? well we replaced the carpet that was there two years ago.
Then tonight when I went into the kitchen to unload the dish washer I found one little red glitter star on the kitchen floor where her high chair was that Christmas. We have since that year replaced all the tile in the kitchen.
Well now you know how I knew my grand daughter was thinking of me tonight.
I have not had any glitter stars in the house since the Christmas she visited. She is an angel you know to visit Grandma at Christmas time.
As her mother has not let me see her since that Christmas she came to spend with Grandma because I was dying. You see my daughter does not approve of me. I do not fit into her Mother mold or the Grand Mother mold. A long and sad story, left to be told in another Christmas year.
An Angel in Your Pocket
I am a tiny angel ...
I'm smaller than your thumb
I live in people pockets
That's where I have fun
I don't suppose you've seen me
I'm too tiny to detect
Though I'm with you all the time
I doubt we've ever met
Before I was an Angel
I was a fairy in a flower
God, Himself hand-picked me
And give me Angel power
Now God has many Angels
That He trains in Angel pools
we become His eyes, and ears, and hands
We become His specials tools
And because God is so busy
With way too much to do
He said that my assignment
Was to keep close watch on you
Then He tucked me in your pocket
Blessing you with Angel care
Saying I must never leave you
And I vowed to stay right here !
Pass this on to everyone that you want to have
