Gives me goosebumps and brings tears to my eyes. There are always signs of our loved ones watching over us. I lost my husband to brain cancer 3 years ago, and yet he always lets me know that he is taking care of me. It doesn't make his loss easier, just comforting. I wish you peace.

You brought me to tears today. But I hope you continue to find comfort and that your child gets well.

What a truly amazing story...there are no coincidences in life so this truly was meant to be found in the way that you did. Find comfort in this ;)

I cried reading that Nic. How beautiful xxx

Hugs for the Howards.xox


Awesome encouraging post. Grace and peace to your family.

When you have the time, mind and heart space to contemplate it and discuss with the family, I recommend sharing the photos and letters with an institution like the National Library. The glimpse into that era and activities would be a real contribution to their collection and to future researchers into NZ history. (http://natlib.govt.nz/collections/donations).

Lump in throat now. I hope this year gets better and better for you guys.

Janelle Jones

(Tears falling down face). Thank you so much for sharing this personal story. You are amazing Nic and you impart so much to so many people in so many ways. This reminds us all to take the time to listen and look....I am so glad you had that moment and you will no doubt continue to have more. We are never alone....bless you heaps.

Jo Baker

Sorry to hear that times have been so tough recently Nic and hope that whichever of the kids are sick they are on the road to a very quick recovery. What a wonderful sign from your father in law to remind you that he is always looking over you and how fabulous that you are tuned in enough to see these wonderful reminders.

Take care of you and the family through this time and remember that it takes some rain to make rainbows :)


Amazing post Nic and I hope your child is well on the road to recovery. Gives ya goosebumps. Hugs to you all
