On Sunday I decided to cook a Sunday roast. I don't normally do this very often because it is too much hard work & both my sons are very fussy eaters.
Anyway, I spontaneously asked Rick & Dean whether they would like me to light the silver & glittery candle which I had lit on what would have been Rupert's birthday (see my last post "Daytime ramblings of painful anniversaries"). I don't normally light candles but obviously feel drawn to this particular candle after my experience with it.
Rick & Dean had been very keen to hear about this encounter & they were okay for me to light it again. This time, as soon as I had lit it, the flame didn't die down. However the flame was never as tall or as bright as when it had been Rupert's birthday. It was just a normal candle. The magic was gone.
This seems like additional confirmation to my questioning mind, that yes I was truly blessed by both God & Rupert.
Thank you for your kind comments & encouragement. I certainly feel loved & supported by so many of you. Thank you for your prayers.
I Live in Essex with my two children on the outskirts of a town. Am part of a village but can see surrounding countryside outside my bedroom window. Bliss! Visiting London is relatively easy. Am in my early forties. Run my own small business from home as a child minder. My kids attend the local secondary school aged 13 & 11. The eldest child has autism, so have a special interest in this.I am on a gluten-free diet for Coeliac Disease. So if anyone has any good recipes to share I would be delighted to hear about them.
I escape to the gym when I can. I usually hate it at the time & clock watch. But afterwards I feel great!
Am a christian & attend the church of England.
I dream of visiting West End shows but it doesn't happen very often! I'm busy fitting my social life around the kids!
Became a widow, aged 41 & hope to blog as a journal through my grief. Hope I can help others through my experiences.
