During my prayers when I was a little girl I would frequently ask Heavenly Father to pass on a message to my sister. Perhaps I should tell you that I cannot remember a time when I did not believe that we live eternal lives. I believe the veil between us and those who have not yet been born and those who have already lived and passed on is much thinner than we often think. So, when I would pray and ask Heavenly Father to tell my sister something, I believed ... and still believe .. that my sister got that message.
One of the men I have loved and adored the most in my life is my Grandfather. Near the end of his life, sometimes he'd hug me before we'd part and cheerfully say, "If I don't see you again, I'll see you on the other side." So, when I came across the song, "See You on The Other Side" by Shaun Canon, it just felt like he had put my feelings to words.
"I wanna say I'm sorry
I wanna say I love you
I wanna say Don't worry about me now
But you're not around for me to say it....
See you on the side
You're gonna be back in my life."
(Lyrics by Shaun Canon)
To some it might be a little unsettling if I were to always leave with the greeting, "If I don't see you again, I'll see you on the other side." But, chances are that if you're reading this, you are one of the people who have impacted my life, someone I love, treasure and care about, and I want you to know how much I care about you. And, even if I don't say it, I'm probably thinking it. So, I want you to know, if I don't see you again here, I will be looking forward to our reunion there. And, if you go before me, please know I'll miss you and I'll be working hard.
