It is hard around the holidays while feeling the lost of our deceased loved ones. I wanted to tell you about a family I gave a reading to recently. It seems that they lost their father/husband and when they came to my house, for a psychic session, his widow brought with her, the thing that meant the most to her husband and to her as a keep sake of her late husband. It meant something to me because it is something that is a favorite of mine, a deck of cards. It seems that her deceased husband used to love to play solitaire, as I do, and did not like to give up his favorite deck of cards, as I do, even if they got well used. As with my family, his family asked him why he didn't get a new deck. My answer is, these are just fine. His answer, as told to me was, these are just fine. For days, and even to this day at times, he comes to my house and watches me play solitaire. I have to admit I don't have as much time to play as I used to, although it is my way of relaxing and he pushes me to play, which I really enjoy. I am glad I was told by his family that he loved to win and would tweak the cards to always win. I don't tweak the cards all the time, but find that I am doing it more as he watches over my shoulder. Take to heart that although our loved ones are not with us during the holidays in person, they are with us in spirit, and have the same interests as before. Their father's name is Jim and he is missed. Well, not missed by me, for he is here with me playing cards.
