The first time I heard the song “ Signs” I was probably 10 years old and In the backseat of the family mobile with my brother beside me singing the lyrics! The part about the “long-haired freaky people need not apply”… was very comical to me at that time in my life. I find it interesting that the song “Signs” was composed while the bands leader was On a Road-trip on Route 66 in the 60’s. The concerns of the hypocritical tones of the billboards at that time prompted the lyrics for Les Emerson. That song with its lyrics “ do this don’t do that, can’t you read the signs?”are a part of my daily routine and rides down my Route 8, Cleveland Road , I- 275 …. whatever Route in life is near!
As long as I can remember I have always looked for signs for guidance and reassurance . Signs can come in all shapes and ways. 24-7! A few examples. ..I know several friends myself included look for cardinals and butterfly’s for signs. Daily motivational passages, the moon, emails, books, a text, flowers,phone call … the list can be endless ! Just yesterday I got a sign I needed to read from a friends Facebook post to give me peace about a decision. Messages or objects that give guidance, a boost, a lean toward which path or decision to make! A guide to follow your intuition. A compass if you will to steer a direction toward or away from something or someone! The signs may come from anyone, anywhere and be very pleasant surprises🌷and help with a bucket list ✔️.
My brother in law was following my coffee mug posts on Facebook that I was posting when the pandemic and quarantine time came on strong to all of us! ☕️I knew my bro in law was sending me his special mugs from The Manson at Turtle Creek in Dallas. Randy worked at The Mansion at one point in his financial career and I know it was a great time in his life! I was seated in my villa where I could see the mailman bringing a package to the door! I thought to myself” if these are my treasured coffee mugs (that I’ve already received explicit instructions that they must be hand washed )… 😂I will take that as my push to start blogging! I was looking for a sign to get started! It took some courage for me to throw myself out there and start my blog! My degree is not in journalism, nor is it in psychology or life coaching! I’m not looking to be the next Oprah ! I just enjoy expressing myself through writing and needed a little sign to ✔️my list and get started! Sure enough the mugs were from my bro in law Randy !!! I got my “sign” and boost to get blogging!!! Oh by the way of course my brother in law has a nickname. Randal El was a player on the Steeler Roster! My bro in law is a Dallas Cowboys fan! It’s a perfect fit! Thanks Randal El for the boost! I’ll take good care of the mugs☕️
I love looking for the Signs in life! Keeps me on the hunt and life interesting . Always searching for answers and guidance. Sometimes I win and sometimes I lose! I’m thankful to be out there trying and thankful for the love and boosts and signs along the way!❤️
