Have I Told You Lately How Much I Love the Comments?

Being stuck at home isn’t any fun. Prior to this Covid-19 event, I was traveling a whole lot, both flying and driving, and I had a train trip planned for late April. And now, all that’s changed. And that’s okay.

I’m very grateful to be strong, well and mobile, but even more than that, I’m so grateful to see the comments that other folks have left, such as Wanda and Michael.

Wanda’s comment (below) was so affirming, and brought back so many lovely memories.

And as to Michael’s comment, I remember something I heard from a hospice nurse recently. She said, “When I get called to the home of someone is close to passing on, and they’ve already had an NDE, they’re impatient. Those patients will tell me, ‘Hey, let’s get this show on the road!’ They’re literally eager to go back to that place, where they knew such peace and love.

Thanks again for leaving a comment!  😀


And Michael’s comment touched my heart so deeply. If *this* is the reason that God sent me back to Earth, it’s a GOOD reason.


Thanks so much to Wanda for helping me remember!

    Hi Rosemary! I have listened (more than once) to the full length version of your near death experience and have found it so comforting.

    I once read an article in Guidepost Magazine contributed by a hospice nurse, who said she could always tell when one of her patients was at the point of death because they would start talking to the angels who were there to take them on their journey and to their loved ones who were obviously waiting for them at The Gate.

    Seven months ago, I moved from my home state of Georgia to the small town of Broadway, VA, in the Shenandoah Valley. I am widowed and, as I got older, I felt the need to be nearer to family. So I built a house here next door to my nephew and his family.

    It is patterned after the Sears Mitchell, which I have always loved.

    In the end, though, I didn’t want to move away from my church and my friends and everything that was familiar to me. I questioned what I had been thinking to voluntarily uproot myself at the age of 70. But after the house was built, I had no choice.

    To make matters worse, I fell and broke both wrists the day before my move was scheduled! So I prayed (and prayed and prayed) that God would give me peace of mind and that He would help me to feel at home from the day I arrived.

    According to everything I had read and heard, it takes at least two years to adjust to a move; but within a month of arriving I was completely at peace and happier than I had been since my husband died.

    The community was so welcoming and I felt like I had lived here all my life. There is no other way to explain it than a gift from God…a spectacular answer to my prayers.

    I want to thank you for sharing the unvarnished truth of your journey. That is part of what helped me on my journey.

    You are loved and prayed for Rosemary.

    Thank you so much for your beautiful note. It means more to me than I can easily say.

    And I love hearing every story about “answered prayers” – especially when it comes to women who are alone in the world.

    Hi, I just wanted to say that I have been watching NDE videos for a long time and yours was one of the saddest but also funniest I ever came across.

    I hope you rely on you’re humor to get you through it all. You’re so funny I think you could do stand up!
