The World As I See It, (1931)
Shortly after Warrior passed, I began seeing little signs around that reminded me of him. Like so many others, when someone we care about leaves earth people want or need signs and look for them as a comfort. These two “signs” just happened to cross my path when I wasn’t even prepared. With many occurrences pertaining to Warrior, they are very random and make me smile.
Years ago, my mom gave me some extra tulip bulbs to plant and these few I have in the planter next to my driveway. Every year a few bloom and they are purple. I never know how many will blossom if any so it is always a mystery. As I was waiting with the kids in the drive for the bus one day mid- April I noticed them.
There were 7 beautifully bloomed purple tulips right next to me. 🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷Now, I know this could be because of a mild winter, an early warm spring, or good bulbs. In all these years, I have never had 7 bloom– never… I believe in the power of numbers~~7 letters in Warrior maybe? This could also be God’s way of giving me peace of mind and I won’t really ever know for sure. What I do know is that they warmed my heart and that’s what mattered. Two years later and I’ve only had 3 or 4 tulips bloom, what a beautiful sign that spring.
Also, around this very
“robotic” time for me, I looked across the street and back in the neighbor’s yard, there was a coyote. They are similar to a dingo, hehe… Coyotes are rarely seen here and one could argue logic. Late winter they mate and then in spring have their young. Migration patterns also may dictate areas they could be seen. If so, why aren’t they around every spring? That time, that year it was new and different.
I turned away for a few seconds to control the dog, looked back and it was gone. How did it run away so fast that I felt perplexed with its whereabouts? It did remind of Warrior who came back for his HOF experience only to be gone so quickly.
Could that coyote have been another message or a sign? I believe it could if not just to remind me how fast things can change. There is a part of me that feels so humbled getting signs even unworthy at times but like he said there are no coincidences and everything happens for a reason. My intuition tells me I must Always Believe…….
