I Am With You Always

As mentioned in my previous post, yesterday was the 2 year anniversary of my mom's death. Earlier this week, I got a James Avery catalogue in the mail. As I flipped thru it, not very interested in fact, I saw a bracelet that spoke out to me. It said ( does actually say it on the bracelet!) "I AM WITH YOU ALWAYS"

I kept thinking and thinking about that bracelet. Wanting to think it was some cool message from Mom.

This is what I KNOW. If she could've given me that bracelet, she would have. If it's possible for her spirit to be around me, or "with me always", I know she would be. So, yesterday I went and bought the bracelet. It was a splurge but it was the best splurge I could've made on that day.

My husband said, "Isn't that a reference to God, or Jesus?" Well, for some people, I'm sure that's what it is. But since I practice my own dis-organized religion, to me it's a reference to my mom. I LOVE my bracelet. It reminds me that in lots of ways, Mom is always with me. She's in millions of my memories and loads of my thoughts- with me always.
