A really cool thing happened that I would like to share with you ladies and gents, today.
And it’s something that has to do with my mother.
I haven’t posted much about my feelings and emotions after she passed away back in November or even up until now, because there really hasn’t been much to tell. I realize that grief comes in stages, therefore I've allowed myself to feel whatever I feel at the moment, but so far it’s been a very calm and peaceful journey. No doubt, I think about her every single day and have to pause whenever I suddenly get the urge to tell her something over the phone, but then realize that I can’t.
I actually can.
You see, I simply talk to her as if I was talking to her on the phone by saying what I wish to say directly to her, both out loud sometimes, and other times when I’m in quiet meditation.
So, in as much as I deeply miss her physical presence in my life, I still feel her close to me.
And just to show you HOW close I feel her near me, I have to share something that just recently occurred.
Unbeknownst to me, before my mother passed away, she had asked that my brother Tom give me the money from her life insurance policy after she died, as a gift.
Now jumping forward to the present:
I just discovered while doing my taxes for 2012, that I ONCE AGAIN owe the government money. And when I saw that, I was totally puzzled. Yet, after looking over my W-2’s, I realized why I owe them money. One of my income sources did not take out enough taxes from my checks, so now I need to pay it back.
Don’t you just LOVE when an unexpected bill pops up and you have to pay it?
Well, I did freak out at first because I truly didn’t know how I was going to come up with this extra money because it was a hefty amount, other than taking a little bit out of each paycheck every week and just paying the total amount in April. I did that two years ago and survived, so I really wasn’t that worried about it.
However, I got a call from my brother a few days ago, and he said that he just got the life insurance policy money and was sending it to me.
Okay. Now how freaky is that?
I suddenly had a V-8 Juice moment.
I realized that I could use part of that money to pay my income tax!
*doing the happy dance*
And as soon as I hung up the phone with my brother, I said to my mother OUT LOUD…
“I know this is YOU, helping me right now.
So thank you, Ann!”
Yup…a really cool thing happened to me.
A mother was still able to help her son from where she was...
Have a Marvi Monday everyone!
