Hieroglyphics of Angels "Flowers have spoken to me more than I can tell in written words. They are the hieroglyphics of angels, loved by all men for the beauty of the character, though few can decipher even fragments of their meaning."~Lydia M. Child~ I awoke this morning at 5:23AM. Why is that so special, you ask? The number 235 in any combination has very special meaning for me. It stems from my grand-mother, who I do believe, played these numbers with the local bookies of her day. It was a city, neighborhood, kind of thing to do, long before our modern day lotteries. My dad, her son won seventeen hundred dollars with this number about fifty years ago. A sizable amount for that time. Have I played this number legally in all combinations, yes. Have I won anything, NO! Then why does it continue to pop up wherever I go? Dad was a very robust man and subtly was not one of his traits. He passed in 2003 at the age of eighty four. He was very ill the last four years of his life and depended on me a great deal towards the end. It was such a wonderful gift to have spent this special time with him. I got to know him in a way that I had never known. I grieved him all along the way. His passing a blessing. When I see the number 235 now, I know that it is he just saying hello and watching over me and my family. I asked for a sign on a medical decision for my mom. There it was the following day on a billboard on the side of the highway. An ad for an automobile and the price, you guessed it, $23,500.00. I told you he was not a subtle man. So I have to ask myself once again, have I won anything? A resounding yes! I have figured out the hieroglyphics of his messages from heaven. When I took my daughter and grand-children to the Naples Botanical Gardens last week the entry fee for all five of us was $53.25. He loved flowers so, his hobby, photography! I just know he had a good time!
