Ho Dianna, thanks for checking in. Have been thinking of you and Frenchie . . .
I do/can not believe in afterlife; and for me afterlife comms is unthinkable, but confess that I found solace in talking to my long deceased dad when days were difficult after the liver job back in 2013
. Since then, I talk to him and my mom occasionally. Not so much for answers, but to keep them alive that way and to bring back memories. By now it has become a private ceremony to honor days long gone.
I wish you many of such chats that you can anchor on.
Best wishes and keep enjoying the butterflies
