I “see” a lot in my line of work. I have parents wanting to know what the last 24 hours of their child’s life was like before they crossed. Parents of missing children ask me if they are still alive or not or were they in pain.
However, nothing prepared me for the love and pain I witnessed the last couple of days. I was asked by one of my dearest friends to talk to her extended family because their 11-year-old child was on life support due to a food allergy and asthma. This beautiful boy is also a twin. Talking to this family had me in uncontrollable tears. He came through expressing to his twin sister how much he loved her and then gave her so much evidence of how he was still here. He said so many things to this amazing family that provided some comfort but couldn’t diminish the pain everyone felt, including myself.
I am a firm believer in miracles but as his father asked me to tell him “please come back,” I could barely speak. This beautiful boy kept showing me how he tried to come back into his body and couldn’t …. It was not allowing him to. Reports from all of the tests at the hospital eventually confirmed that he was brain dead. How could this happen so quickly?…. My heart shattered….. Yesterday they took this very sweet boy off of life support and Heaven gained an angel. We love you Oakley, you will be in our hearts forever……
The reason I’m posting this picture is because I asked Oakley to show me a sign in colors ……. As I did last night, this sunset with a fire in its heart appeared within minutes….
Today Love and love some more when it comes to your family and friends… life is too short not to.
