Pensacola Paracon Trip: Rob's Mom and Dad's "Spirit Assistance" #1

At the airport nice and early
It's nothing new that my (Rob) mom and dad's spirits are around me, and they help me out from time to time. This past weekend when I flew to the Pensacola Paracon, I got their help again.

  The first word I received from my mom and dad's spirits was on the Super Shuttle ride to the airport at 4:15 a.m. on Friday, August 8. I was so overtired (slept for 4 hours) that I was in a foggy state and heard my mom start talking with me. This is not uncommon when you're in a state between consciousness and unconsciousness. That's when they can get through to you!
Finally arrived! 
WHAT THEY SAID -  She talked about a lot of things. She mentioned my older brother's birthday, and said she made me turn on Pandora on Thursday when "For the Good Times" by Eddy Arnold played - because she used to love singing that song. My dad finally stepped forward and cut her off, just as he had to do in life to get her to stop talking sometimes! He mentioned they'd be with me in Florida, and brought forth my grandmother "Nana" and said she's never seen anything like the conference. I know now that she came forward because she always bought me comic books when I was a kid - and the convention included comic books, superheroes and science fiction. It was nice to "see" them all.
INSPIRATION THAT HELPED -    Spirits can inspire us to do things that will ultimately help us, or teach us lessons we need to know. This time it was the former. After my 2 flights, I reached Pensacola. I took the stairs down to the baggage claim and felt I had to look to the right at the bottom of the stairs. On the wall in a tiny area was a rack holding maps of the airport and a book-like brochure of Pensacola. I was pushed to walk over, and I took the brochure that contained maps.I noticed it had broken down the city into regions, and contained hotel listings that were mapped out, too. But, I didn't need a hotel. Or I thought I didn't!

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
