MESSAGES FROM MY DAD
My Dad passed in August 1992 and these events happened approximately 10 years later. On the first occasion, it was during a weekend and I had watched a movie based on a true story about a young girl that had sent a balloon to heaven with a message inside to her deceased father, and she received a message in return. It was called Mermaid (came out in 2000). I cried during the movie, thinking of my Dad the whole time, and thinking how cool it would be to receive this kind of message from my Dad on the other side. A couple of days later, I had parked my car in the driveway and as I got out, I turned around and there was a heart-shaped red balloon right in front of, hovering as if it was waiting for me to take it. With all of my being, I knew he was there handing me this balloon. I still have it but of course it’s no longer inflated 🙂
On the second occasion, feeling depressed and lonely, I went to bed alone and before falling asleep, I asked my Dad to let me know that he was with me and helping me through this difficult time. I fell asleep and a few hours later, around 3am, I awoke to the sound of my alarm clock moving. When I looked at the clock, it was turned completely around and I could not see the time. Not sure what to think, I turned the clock back around so I could see the time. I closed my eyes to fall back asleep and I heard the clock move again and when I opened my eyes, the clock was once again moved around. I knew it was him!!
