Hear your Warm and Fuzzy here!
With this being Mother’s Day weekend, I was reading extra material, trying to find the “right” Mother’s Day Warm and Fuzzy”. And that comes with a challenge, since Mama Jaymes is gone now, these 2 1/2 years. The length of time has done little to console the grief that I feel over her loss. She was my world, my everything and I find a hole in my life daily, as I try to go on without her. Still, I know I must go on, so I do the best I can.
I wrote this story after Mama had passed and yes, it is true. I still find pennies every so often and that makes me not just smile, but find some reprieve from the pain of missing her.
If your Mama is still alive, I encourage you to hug, her, call her, reach out to her and tell her you love her.
We only get one Mama, and in my case, she was the best God has ever made.
Happy Mother’s Day to you! I will be the one on your radio on Sunday, playing music and trying to stay distracted about the day. I will be saying a prayer for all my friends, a few too recent, that have lost their mom’s. It is a sucky club to be in.
Sending love and prayers~Robynn
The night my mother slipped away from this world, through my grief and mourning – somewhere in the back of my mind there was this story, or poem that kept trying to find it’s way through. I kept remember reading something about pennies from Heaven.
I had gone back to the hotel that night, full of pain and emptiness. Still, this poem was getting the better of me, so in the middle of my hurting, I looked it up on the net. It goes like this;
I found a penny
All shiny and new
I found a shiny penny
And I know it’s from you.
You can’t be here
I know that’s true
But I appreciate the fact
That I am reminded of you.
Pennies from Heaven
They drop to the ground
To remind us of loved ones
Who once were around.
So next time you see one
Laying there all alone
Pick it up and smile
For you know from where it was thrown!
The author of the poem was anonymous.
After I read this poem, I decided to go down the hall and get a soft drink from the vending machine. My heart was so heavy and I was staring at the ground, not wanting to make eye contact with anyone. And as I was approaching that vending machine, looking down, I could see something kind of shimmer. As I drew closer, I saw a penny and I got chills. And when I got completely to the machine, there on the ground were 14 pennies!!
I knelt at that vending machine picking up those pennies, sobbing, and thanking God and my mom for this amazing message.
It hasn’t stopped there. Ever since then, I find pennies in places where they weren’t before. I see them everywhere now, on the ground, on counters, in so many random places and so it seems, in moments when I need reassurance the most.
It’s a pretty cool when you stop and think about it. My God and my Mom are tossing pennies to me from Heaven.
I hope, if you still have your sweet mama this Mother’s Day that you will take the time to shower her with
