No matter what kind of loss, I am sure I can speak for most, it forces one to reflect and reevaluate life. 

Loss changed everything for me. Everything as I knew it has changed. It is scary. I did not choose it but I am embarking on a new chapter in my life and doing my best to consciously create the best life for Kenny and I.

International friendships

It has been a tough month. A month of fully diving into another level of letting go and change.

A few days ago I flew to Ottawa to secure a home for Kenny and I and to register Kenny into a school. I was not aware that Ottawa's Canadian tulip festival was happening the same week. 

The tulip festival took my breath away. 

Tulips were one of Brian's favorite flowers (Orchids was a close second). 
The first bouquet of flowers Brian gave me was tulips. 

He was sure to have tulips in our home whenever they were available. Kenny and I have kept up the tradition and have our special place for tulips in our home. 

I have learned tulips are Ottawa's official flower and a symbol of international friendship and peace. 

I feel the tulip festival is a sign. A sign that Brian is still with us and affirming that Kenny and I are taking the next best steps.

I am certain participating in the tulip festival each year will be another tradition for Kenny and I. 

Today I feel a little lighter, a little more peace and an anticipation of the international friendships Kenny and I will make. 

Believing in divine signs has helped me navigate this journey of loss. I am more open then ever to what life is saying to me. 

Did you believe in signs? 
Do share the signs you have received that has helped you navigate life when you you needed them most.
