If I Should Ever Miss The Snow


Snow is gently falling on my blog, but there is no snow falling here in Phoenix Arizona!  I remember growing up in Northern New Jersey and all the snowfalls and ice storms that would close the schools.  We loved those days and would be outside sledding and making snowmen and just enjoying the day off from school.  But that changed once I was older and had to drive to work on snowy, icy roads.  If the snow would begin falling in the morning, I would watch it through the windows and worry all day about getting home later and how long it would take with all the traffic.

The final straw was the time I drove home from an event during the early afternoon in a snow storm.  The highway was very slippery and I went into a skid, then a spin, and then crossed the road several times hitting the guard rails on each side of the road.  When I finally came to a stop, I was amazed that I didn’t hit another car!  I continued driving with my knees shaking, heading uphill to my home.  As I turned onto the street right before mine, my wheels were spinning and would not make it up the incline. I had to back down and try several times hitting the accelerator and then making a swing left onto my street finally and into my driveway.  I was shaking all over, in disbelief that I was safely home.  My car was pretty dented from hitting those guardrails but I was not dented at all.  I truly believe my angels protected me that day!

I resolved that day to move to a warmer climate and be done with driving in snow forever.  The following summer I was able to take a trip to Arizona to visit my brother.  I spent a week here and fell in love with it, even in the heat!  The mountains totally surround the Phoenix valley and I had a feeling of protection. I made the decision that I must move here and went back home knowing that I would live here somehow.  

The following year after being divorced for several years, I happened to meet a gentleman at a dance who had gone to Arizona State University and now lived in New Jersey, but always had the desire to go back to the Phoenix area to live. As fate would have it, two years later we were married.  We bought a motor home and moved cross country together.  Our combined five kids visit us and we visit them and our grandchildren in New Jersey and Pennsylvania every year.  One of them drove our car west and moved to San Diego for a few years. He then moved to beautiful Sedona where he has lived happily now for over 20 years. He was happy to leave the cold weather behind too!

We have now lived in Arizona 31 years and the only time we see snow anymore is on television or on Christmas cards and here on my Blog page!  I had my fill of it and can go north to Flagstaff anytime if I should want to see it.

Merry Christmas!                  christmas-love-in-action-pic

Happy New Year!

The Cat’s Eye Tarot

I am excited to add a new deck to my Tarot Card collection, “The Cat’s Eye Tarot”.  These were created by a female Veterinarian and are very beautiful!  I am getting familiar with them and will soon be doing Tarot Card readings incorporating these with my other favorite decks.

It seems that readings can be done at a distance just as well as in person.  So, if you have a question or need advice, I would be happy to work with you!  Look above at my services on the menu bar.

Here is a sample of these beautiful colorful cards.

After designing my own deck of Astrology cards, I can appreciate all the work that went into these cards and I love cats too!

Even More Pennies From The Angels

I found a penny right by my feet three times this week!

I previously published two blog posts about the pennies and dimes that angels use to get your attention, along with finding feathers near you and butterflies flying right next to you.

It has been awhile, but within the last 8 days, 3 times, wow!!  

I found the first penny last week the next morning after placing my first order for my Astrology game of cards, which was very exciting after 2 years of working on it.  I felt my angels were congratulating me.

I found another penny today after leaving the bank where I decided to open a checking account for doing card game business.  I felt they liked that and said money is coming your way.

Then I was given another penny today when I made a stop to pick up something and there it was at my foot as I stepped out of the car.  I think they were emphasizing the fact that they like what I am doing.

So was this all a coincidence or my imagination working overtime?  I don’t think so.  Read my other 2 stories on this topic and tell me what you think!!

Coming soon!

More Angel Pennies

I  noticed recently that I don’t find coins on the ground anymore.  In the spring I posted a story about the pennies and dimes I was finding at my feet and what I believe they meant.  After I wrote twice about the subject, it seems the coins stopped appearing.  So this week, I asked if I could see pennies or dimes again to know my angels are still nearby.   Suddenly, as I was about to get into my car in a parking lot a few days ago, I looked down and there they were……….three little pennies at my feet!


3 pennies

Thanks angels, for letting me know you are still there and that you like it when I write about you and your messages.

If anyone needs to look back, see  “Pennies and Dimes from my Angels” and the post following on the same subject.


100_2572While walking yesterday, a butterfly flew toward my face and then veered away.     Within a few minutes, I saw a penny and picked it up!    An Angel trying to get my attention again!

But the best part was later in the day while standing in line to order coffee, an older gentleman behind me with a walker dropped his change on the floor.  We helped him retrieve his coins, and then noticed several more about a foot away.  We told him we saw a dime and a penny and we would  pick them up for him.  He declined our offer, saying they were not his and he walked away.    Wouldn’t most people take all the coins that had dropped?  But, no, he emphatically declared they were not his!   Well, then of course they were for me, a dime and a penny, more coins from the Angels.

Today, I will glue the wings back on my little vintage Angel, who has patiently lived without her wings for over two years!  And, I think  maybe these celestial beings want me to keep talking about them and keep the awareness going that they are always there for us!




100_2974Following up on my post about the angels, something very exciting happened yesterday.

I had just finished writing this blog and decided to take a walk.  As I was walking along, there on the sidewalk in front of my feet was a shiny brand new penny, heads up!  As I bent down to pick it up, I noticed to the side was a dime and another penny, so of course I retrieved those too.  What blew me away was the last sentence of my blog stating that angels communicate with us in various ways, such as showing us pennies, dimes, feathers, butterflies, dragonflies and even words in songs.   The ink on the page wasn’t even dry, so to speak, when I received acknowledgment from the angels.

I feel they were saying that they really liked me sharing information about them and they approved!

I used to see dragonflies a lot in my yard and two of them made a nest in one of my bushes and stayed for many weeks.  I would go out and greet them each morning. What were they trying to tell me?  I missed them after they were gone!

Watch for those butterflies and dragonflies and coins and remember an angel might have a message or an answer for you, so be alert!     Has anyone had any interesting angel encounters they would like to share?
