We are all so connected to one another. Last month, out of the blue, I
received a phone call one evening from Sentrina, a lightworker friend from New
Jersey. I hadn’t talked to her in years. She wanted to know how I was.
“Fine!” I was in the middle of dealing with newly arrived baby chicks, and
actually I had suffered all day with a bad headache. It wasn’t until she
commented, “I got the message to call you... I wonder why,” when I confessed
about my headache.
Just then my friend JoAnn showed up to pick up the chicks she had ordered, so
Sentrina told me she’d get to work on my headache and call me back another
We hung up, and I shared JoAnn’s excitement at picking out her baby chicks.
Ten minutes later, after JoAnn had left with her peeping birds, I realized
quite suddenly that my headache was completely gone. I was astonished and
smiled, thinking of Sentrina.
When Sentrina called back, I told her about the episode, and she was delighted
to learn she’d helped.
Six years ago this month, my dad passed away. Not long ago, I was lying in
bed, going through my prayer thoughts, and I asked for a chance to be in
contact with him as I missed him and wanted him to know I was thinking of him.
The next day I was sorting some papers on my desk when I came across a yellow
pad of writing paper on which I had made some notes from a MUFON meeting.
After tearing those out, I noticed there was writing in the middle of the
yellow pad. I flipped through and recognized my dad’s handwriting. There were
three or four pages of it, nothing significant, just some jottings he had made
several years ago, probably right after he and my mother had moved to Nevada
I read through it all and felt comforted by his handwriting and how close it
made me feel to him. Then, suddenly, I knew that this was his way of saying
hello to me! For one thing, it was highly unusual that I would come across
these notes in my stack of work. Quite amazing, actually! It was definitely
We never really lose anybody in our lives. The connection and the love is
always there. All I need to do is think of my dad and I can feel his love just
as though he were giving me a hug.
The bonds we form with people over the years remain even when we no longer see
much of them, such as my connection with Sentrina. How grateful I am for all
of you and your connection to me.
