A Sign From Daisy

When I found out that Daisy died I didn't have the luxury of curling up into a ball and hiding from the world for a few weeks.  We were still in California and after days of searching we still hadn't found a house.  So I put my pajamas on, convinced myself that I had to find a house for the sake of our other fur babies and we headed out the door to meet the realtor.

I really felt like there was no way I would like any house we saw that day.  I was pretty sure I was going to hate everything I saw because I was so upset.  But the moment we walked into the first house that day we knew it was THE ONE.  It just felt like home.  We kept walking through the house expecting to find some horrible flaw but it actually kept getting better and better.  I actually had the thought fly through my head "did Daisy send this house to us?"  It was perfect.  We even kept joking that we weren't cool enough to live in this house!

A few days later I was looking at pictures of the house to try to cheer myself up and distract myself.  And I stopped on this picture and gasped........

Do you see what I see?  Look closely.....do you see it now???

There's a bouquet of daisies on the coffee table of our dream house.  I'm normally not one who believes in signs.....but signs don't get anymore obvious than this, do they?

As of Friday, the dream house is now ours.  And in a few short weeks we'll be living in the house where Daisy left a little sign for me to find.  Pretty amazing, isn't it?


And I want to send out a huge thank you to everyone who left such sweet comments on my last post.  I'm sorry I haven't been able to personally respond to all of you yet but your comments have really lifted me up and warmed my heart.  It's so incredible to know that so many people would take the time to leave such kind words for someone they've never met.  Big hugs to all of you!

I definitely believe in this sign. this house has been blessed by darling daisy. she wants you to be happy there.

This was a sign especially for you (and Col Sew Fab), as you were the only one to recognise it. Clearly Daisy had already chosen the home for you knowing you will be happy there (and so will she while she still keeps an eye on you. . .)

Absolutely a sign! Glad you were in tune to understand how it was the right house for you :)

There is no such thing as coincidence! I also think you are totally cool enough for any house. Have fun on this adventure. XXX

I was happy to read your post. We live in California, and there are wonderful people where you are going, wonderful shops...and perhaps some wonderful quilt shops...happy days are ahead. Enjoy yourself and the process, take it one day at a time. So glad your husband is going to be doing his happy heart thing. It is a good thing. Happy hubbys are wonderful!
