~ See You Again ~

And on the 8th day ~ just keepin' it real my friends ~

Abby 
7/08/97 ~ 6/21/13

I have had a difficult day and couldn't decide whether to post this or not. I am making an effort to post 31 days...or less this month. There are brighter days now but today I just felt sad all day. I went to get my hair cut and then decided to run an errand ~ just to stay out and not be at home. When I was almost in tears in the car, this song "See You Again" by Carrie Underwood played on the radio. Carrie wrote and recorded this song after the Sandy Hook tragedy. It was one of the pieces of music we chose for Abby's memorial service.  After that, my daughter and I would hear it constantly...very often in the same area where we would be driving regularly. (cue Twilight Zone music) Anyway, I hadn't heard it in months and yet today when I was feeling the worst, it was sent to me. I don't believe in coincidences/accidents ~ I think there's a greater force at work and we're given gifts such as this from the other side.  I hope that you'll take a few minutes and listen ~

  1. Oh Pat what a beautiful photo of Abby. I'm sorry you were in a sad place today but I'm like you. I think the timing of that song was not an accident. I like to think that song was meant for your ears. I know Abby is watching over those she loved and I hope you believe that too. Tomorrow will be better, one day at a time right?
    hugs,
    Leslie

  2. I am so sorry for your sadness, but what a wonderful song came on at just the right time for you. That was truly a gift for your heart and soul, Pat. Isn't it ovely how music can lift one's spirit or conjure up memories? I'm still praying....xo

  3. I don't believe in coincidences either, Pat. That was a sign as much as anything I have ever heard. God bless you- I do understand your pain. God bless you.

    I am off for a couple of days for a slight procedure..but just know I am thinking of you this morning before I go- xo Diana

  4. I too don't believe in coincidences, everything that happens is for a reason and this one was a reminder that Abby is always closed to you, all the time.
    God bless you my friend and there's nothing wrong in feeling sad and missing a loved one.
    Hugs,
    FABBY

  7. I can so relate Pat. So many times over the past few weeks, the pressure from not yet knowing the results would get to me and a song would come on the radio that just spoke to me. He was speaking to me, and knew just what I needed. Praying for peace for you today. Such a beautiful picture of Abby.

  8. Oh dear Pat,I feel your pain. There will be days like that and it is natural to feel sadness. The song is so beautiful and true. Your sweet Abby was a beautiful young woman whose life was suddenly taken away. We may never understand the whys.....I feel the same way when I hear the song, In the arms of an angel. A song I associate with the passing of my younger sister. Much Love, Linda

  10. And Abby does it again ! I'm not surprised at all Pat - remember the bracelet? She's with you.
    All.
    The.
    Time.
    I wish you didn't have to feel the pain but she tries so hard to alleviate it, doesn't she?
    Far too many moments to just be mere coincidences my friend - and I for one, absolutely believe there are Angels among us.
    XOXO

  13. So sorry for your pain today. Yes, sometimes it's a song, sometimes it's a memory, sometimes it's an aroma, sometimes it's a flower or a sunset that brings those we've lost close enough that we can feel them. We ache but we are assured that we will see them again. prayers for you.
