Poinsettias Gave Me Renewed Hope
My granmother passed away in her sleep just before Christmas and I have been grief stricken since her passing. Now that it is Christmas, I can’t help but think of her so much. I had days when I cry so much because I still feel that pain of losing someone I love so much.
This year, I had lost the spirit of Christmas and had sort of been dragging my feet around shopping and doing the usual in the preparation up to Christmas. One day, I thought of the Creation Process and decided to think of something to restore my faith in humanity and also in myself I guess, as I was slowly losing faith in LoA. But something inside me kept telling me to hold on. So I put it to the test. I thought of my Nan and how much she loved Poinsettias. It was her favorite flower to decorate the home with at Christmas. I’ve never seen Poinsettias in this city so I asked the Universe to show me a sign that Nan was still around, looking over me and making sure we were all safe. I asked to see Poinsettias. The following day, as I walked past a florist shop, I saw the florist putting out Poinsettias for sale. I knew my request had been answered and gave a small prayer of thanks. I felt warmth in my heart and knew that no matter what it is that I am thinking or feeling, LOA is giving to me the things that I think about without fail. And I only asked once!
As I continued to prepare for Christmas, I asked the LOA to give me that feeling again and show me Poinsettias just one more time. Lo and Behold! At midnight mass at Church, to my amazement, after the offertory, two people came forward to offer the Priest a bouquet of Poinsettias each to place at the alter. I knew at that moment my Nan was showing me how proud she was of me for keeping the faith and for moving forward in my life.
To those of you experiencing loss of someone you love – keep the faith. They might not be here physically but they are here in spirit, in our hearts and whenever you need them to be with you in your darkest, loneliest moments, just look inside your heart and you will find them there giving you the peace and love that you deserve. Don’t ever think that they have left you all by yourself.
