Do you have a book inside of you that wants to be birthed?

Many people have shared with me that after reading Simply a Woman of Faith,  they began to write their book.

                        Happy New Year

                     A SIGN FROM HEAVEN

I can remember it as if it were yesterday as the song played on the radio. I jumped up and turned up the
volume to hear the words better. "Honey I miss you and I'm being good. An angel came and took her away." Tears rolled down my cheeks and goosebumps spread across my body. My mother's name was Honey.

The song Honey, by Bobby Goldsboro was written shortly after my mother died 42 years ago on New Year's Day.  I still hear the song and it touches me as deeply as it did the first day I heard it. I know it's my mother's way of communicating with me and letting me know she's with me and everything is okay. That's just like my mother to have a song written after her.

I am open to signs from my mother, especially around the anniversary of her death. On New Year's day, I spent time in prayer thinking about the past year and what I wanted to create in 2010. I wanted to feel my mother's presence and hoped to hear the song. I felt disappointed, but trusted she would show up on her terms,not mine.

I left church and drove to my daughter's house for a visit. Of course, I put the radio on hoping I would hear Honey. It had been quite awhile since I heard the song and even wondered if they still played it. No Honey!

When I arrived at my daughter's house, she was all excited because a friend had just told her that the house on the next street (that abbutted her property) was for sale. It had been her dream to buy this house so she could farm the land. Mary is an herbalist and grows and harvests her own vegetable and plants. (

Mary didn't know the woman who owned the house and was eager to introduce herself and let her know of her intentions. We walked around the block, rang the doorbell and waited. Mary introduced herself and said "I'm your neighbor and live in the house behind you." The woman was pleasant and invited us in. My jaw  dropped when she told us her name was Honey. Not only was her name Honey, but her elderly mother who lived with her was Honey.

My daughter and I just looked at one another in amazement as the chills went down our spines.

I didn't hear the song play on the radio, but meeting Honey today was our sign from heaven that all is well.

                   INSPIRATIONAL STORY                            

My husband died suddenly in February 2009. We were married 36 years. Needless to say, it has been a very difficult year without him. I have often felt his presence and I know he is with me when the basement lights flicker on and off for no reason. I felt down in the dumps on my birthday December 30. I just wanted to go home after work and put my head under the covers. Instead, I went to dinner with my aunt to keep her happy.

When we came home my aunt went to her bedroom, and I sat in the living room staring into the TV thinking of Walter.  

My 90 year old aunt's birthday was November 5. I bought her flowers with a mylar balloon that said Happy Birthday. When I passed my aunt's bedroom, I noticed that the balloon still had air in it and had floated to the ceiling. This was strange in itself because it had almost been two months that I gave her the flowers with the balloon.

What happened next was truly amazing and mind boggling. Walter was trying to make his presence known, for sure. Something caught my attention as I looked up and saw the birthday balloon hovering over me. It had floated out of my aunt's bedroom into the living room past me to where my husband used to sit and back to me again. I looked up and all I could say was "really, really, is this your way of saying Happy Birthday Wally?" I sat there in shock for quite awhile as the balloon hovered over the living room for 20-30 minutes.

This sign from heaven will stay in my mind and heart forever. Although it is not easy without him and I think of him every day, I know he is with me and was wishing me a Happy Birthday and he did it in his way.

                   INSPIRATIONAL STORY

                                   Matthew 5:3-9
I don't often quote the Bible, although I love its words as I do the words from most holy texts because they carry a very high vibration that sinks into my soul and thus raises my own vibration.
The poor in spirit and those who hunger and thirst have been put in my path so many times in the past couple of months.  Each encounter has been a blessing for me.  It has given me a chance to look at myself and to see my reflection in their eyes as well as to look in their eyes and see the reflection of emotions buried, sometimes deep, inside me.  As Mother Earth says "We are all ONE."
I walked into the coffee shop, and although there were other seats available, I hesitated for a moment and then chose to sit next to him.  He looked at me and then looked down and said, "I apologize dear, for looking like this. Perhaps you'd rather sit somewhere else."  "No, I'm quite happy sitting here," I said and smiled at him.  His eyes filled up with tears, and he said "Thank you."  He told me I reminded him of his daughter that had died two years ago. He used to live with her, but now lived in a boarding house by himself.  He had no family and he had outlived all of his friends. The waitress at this coffee shop was kind to him and he had come to give her a little Christmas gift. 

I finished my coffee and wished him a Happy New Year!  He gave me a huge smile as he tipped his hat at me and then recited an old Irish Blessing.  His whole demeanor had changed. He no longer looked deflated, but proud and strong, like the young man he had once been.  I left the shop being warmed by so much more than coffee.

I learned from the old man with the threadbare coat whose hands shook as he held a cup of coffee, that everyone has a story and that you cannot judge a person by their clothing or appearance.

                    Comment from client Lisa Tener:

Within two sessions with Pat I saw a huge shift in my life--I was manifesting time for all the things that nourish me--dancing, singing, walking in nature. Coaching by phone with Pat is powerful. I liked that I didn't have to travel to see her, but could work with her from home.
