I wasn't going to post today, not much has happened lately, no news to talk about but after what I just received in the mail I had to share. I am covered in goose bumps it is so amazing!
The picture below and the story of it. A few weeks ago I visited Earth Angels (a store close to where we live that has angel things in it) I was shopping for a gift for a fellow baby loss mama and while I was there I happened to shop a little for myself as well. I had been looking for some more jewelry (necklace and earrings) to subtly represent Ty and Jacob. I haven't had much luck other then special ordering a few things from baby loss websites. While I was there I noticed these gorgeous pair of earrings, I wanted something beautiful for my boys but not so out there that they were...well, not so subtle. These were perfect, I saw them and I knew I had to have them. Being a little OCD I like to have matching sets so I asked about a necklace. She didn't have the matching necklace or anything similar to it, there were no angel wing necklaces. I decided I still had to get the earrings they were too perfect. So I went on my way, happy I found the perfect earrings and excited to mail off my little gift to my exchange mama.
A couple of weeks went by and my baby loss mama I did the exchange with sent me a message to let me know she had sent out my package. I had no idea what to expect. I have been in exchanges before and have not had good experiences (twice now where I signed up for an exchange but I never got anything on return, I don't really care about getting something in return but a thank you would be nice) Anyways, I love knowing I have mail coming, it gives me something to look forward to. I walked down to the mailbox today and saw my package, I was a tad excited!!!
I came up and opened it right away....In it was a beautiful poem and flower, written and taken by my exchange mama. She also makes little angle ornaments and had sent two for the boys. There was also a pretty wrapped little package that took me awhile to open up...okay before I go any further I have to tell you the e-mail she sent me. This was the message she sent when she mailed my package:
"Just wanted to let you know that I sent your package today. It should be there in the next couple days. I really hope you like it. This might sound weird, but I really I feel like your sweet angels were with me when I was working on the one item... I had been humming and hawwing over what to do for you... and as I sat at my parents house (I was visiting) and it was quiet was when I came to me (the poem... the picture is mine as well... from a couple years ago) And then later that day I was shopping with a friend and I came across the small gift and knew it would be perfect. I'm hoping the idea of that doesn't weird you out at all... but I truly feel that you wee ones were with me helping me out."
It doesn't weird me out at all that others feel Ty and Jacob's presence, in fact I love hearing about it! But truly...I know they were with her that day because when I opened the last package it was the necklace that matched my earrings that I had wanted but the store didn't have. Out of every single gift that could have come my way, it was the matching necklace. I know that is no coincidence! It gave me goosebumps....I know my boys were there with her picking out the perfect gift for me.....I'm shivering it's still so amazing. I have been asking the boys to send some signs and wow, this was a pretty big one! I cannot deny that they are all around, not only me but others in my life. It has inspired new hope in me so thank you Ty and Jacob and thank you exchange mama.
