MY LITTLE RED GLITTER STAR ANGEL

Sunday, December 13, 2009

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
"an angel in their pocket " - Author Unknown -

  If Kerrigan is powerful enough to send you the glitter stars, she will be powerful enough to join you when she is old enough to do it on her own.......

    hugs* hopefully you'll be able to see Kerrigan soon.
I've only seen my brother and sister once (they're 17 and 19 years old now) so I know the feeling of being kept from family- I was so grateful when they were finally old enough to start using social web sites (like myspace) so that I could find them and start to have some kind of relationship with them... even if it's not face to face- at least it's something.
thanks for sharing- I really hope your relationship with your daughter will someday mend so you can get to know your precious granddaughter.

    The poem was beautiful! Thank you for sharing it with us! I am sorry your daughter feels as she does but hopefully in time she will realize being a mother and grandmother does not come with a specific instruction manual and we all just do the best we can. The most important things I feel we can give our children and grandchildren is love and our time to listen to them and to spend with them. I don't have children of my own but have helped to raise others children and find what they all seem to want the most from me is love, approval and for me to not just listen to them but to hear what they are saying to me.
I hope your daughter sees the importance of you being a part of your granddaughters life.

Oh, Sandy.....that just breaks my heart that you haven't been able to see your
little Kerrigan for such a long time. I pray that the Lord will soften your
daughters' heart soon...so it won't be so selfish towards you, and you may have a
role in your granddaughter's life ! Her little red glitter stars are proof that
she's thinking of you and remembering !

Whether it is someone we haven't seen for a while, or someone who has gone to
their heavenly home....we all have an angel in our pocket to keep our memories
alive ! Thank you for that beautiful poem !!!! emoticon

    Sandy, My heart bleeds for you...as I know what it's like to lose a loved one, but to lose one that's alive is just so incredibly beyond sad. You're in my prayers, my friend. I know that Kerrigan thinks of you, because God reminds her that she has an angel in Grandma.
I'm so glad the Holy Spirit gave you reminders of her love. As my mom got more and more sick, I gave her little marble like gems that were her"sparkles." They were to remind her of all the blessings in her life, and that she was loved. God is leaving you sparkles....
Hugs my friend,
Stacey

I will pray for a Christmas Miracle to change your daughters heart so that you can see your granddaughter.

    Oh Sandy. Thank you for sharing that with me. I didn't realize you weren't able to see her. I just can't imagine. But how special to still be finding those little glitter stars. Yes, I am sure it is because she is thinking of you. I had not seen my grandfather since I was 5 or 6 because my mother had similar feelings toward her father. It was an odd, empty feeling when I found out he had past away several years ago. I pray you get the chance to be the grandparent to Kerrigan that my grandfather didn't have the chance to be to my sister and I.

MAKING TIME FOR EXERCISE

Saturday, December 12, 2009



When we are serious about what's ahead and need to establish firm footing now before we start our new journey.
Making a plan isn't enough today; you have to take it to the next level. But don't try to do too much at once. Many consistent small steps are much better than a few dramatic leaps forward.


EXERCISE TIPS


TAKE MINUTES THOUGH OUT THE DAY.

BRUSHING TEETH------------------------------CALF LIFTS

VACUUMING FLOOR---------------------------LUNGES

MICROWAVE A GIRLS BEST FRIEND

HIP FLEXORS
SQUATS
CALF LIFTS
YOGA
LEG LIFTS
SIDE BENDS


STAIRS

USE AS A STEPPER EVERY TIME YOU HAVE TO GO UP STAIRS DO TEN STEPS ON BOTTOM STEP

You can work in several minutes a day even if you don't have time to do a full workout. Keep moving and work in a little where you can. It all adds up.

    There's so many bargains out there now! I told hubby that we should wait until after Christmas to buy anything because I think the prices will be even lower. Like WendiWA_1, I'm doing some shopping online and finding good bargains. Hope you have fun!

Thanks so much for reading my blogs. I always appreciate your support and it really means a lot to me. I also feel we're kindred spirits, almost like sisters. I don't think I've ever felt that way with anyone, especially since I never had a sister (just a younger brother).

Have a great evening!
