Last night, your mother ended her call to You with this line :
I'll be watching you ...
She had high-lighted the words in orange.
This morning, your family got ready to go to church.
Dad went to get the car, whilst Mom went a floor down to get Megan and the maid. Aunty D is still in confinement, baby Dylan is only 2.5 weeks old.
Megan took awhile to get ready. By the time we got down, and got into the car, would You believe it but we were greeted with this same song :
I always feel like, somebody's watching me ...
Oh my Lord.
Mom's eyes shot to the dashboard.

Her angel sign.
"Somebody's watching me ... Omg ... I wrote about this last night ..." Mom said to Dad, in disbelief.
Like -- Omg ...
What are the chances? Honestly, what are the chances??? Had they come down to the car a few minutes later, she would have missed it. In fact, she remembers hurrying out of Megan's apartment, waiting impatiently outside the apartment gate, hurrying Megan to change, telling her that Uncle Bryan was waiting for her in the car ...
You must have whispered to your mother :
Hurry down, Ma ... :D
To get zapped!
That was certainly a loud HI MA ... all the way from heaven. You must have received all of Mom's calls, she's sure of that.
It is obvious that You were -- responding -- to her.
It's so easy ... your voice from the hospital bed.
Anyway ... we soon arrived in church.
It's Palm Sunday today.
Justine took this photo during the procession.
Anyway, after mass, we went for breakfast.
Then, Dad and Mom drove to the mall. Justine, Megan and the maid went home with Aunty C. Yeah, Aunty C met us in church. She drove in a separate car, intending to go to a conference after mass, but changed her mind and ended up having breakfast with us.
We were at the mall.
Mom wanted to go to Mothercare.
From the basement parking, we took the lift up. As we were walking towards the store, we passed this sign :
Mom exclaimed, "Hey, look at this ... MA and SON ... Awww, you see, son's reminding that he's right beside me ..."
Dad stopped by to look.
Mom ran her hand across the sign, and commented, "Isn't it funny? The I is missing ... It's supposed to be MAISON ... Now it's just MA and SON ... me and my son ..."
Everywhere we are, there you'll be ...
As we've always maintained.
Mothercare was just around the corner.
Mom went in. Dad went to the bookstore beside.
About 2 hours later ...
We paid for our stuffs at the counter. Mom took a free catalogue from the stand before leaving.
We walked back to the bookstore. Dad said we could have coffee at the cafe in the bookstore.
So anyway, we were seated. Mom pulled out the catalogue and started to flip over the pages, exclaiming with delight at each page and each toy.
Awww ... how cute ...
Flip flip flip ...
Awww, would you look at that?
Flip flip flip.
It wasn't until she came to the DOLL HOUSES, that she took her time to admire the tiny furniture and the intricate interior design of each section.
You know how Mom has a thing for doll houses. She bought one recently, when we were doing MY HOUSE for that week, along with all the furniture for bedroom, kitchen, bathroom and living room.
Dad says it's because she never had one when she was young.
So anyway, she happened to look up the page with the intention of reading the fine prints when she saw the name :
La Belle Maison.
Time stood still for her.
Excitedly, Mom pointed to Dad, "Omg, would you look at this? Maison ... We just passed that Maison shop ... and I said, that's MA and SON ... Omg ... what are the chances???"
On the top right, she read "with 12 accessories ..."
Decode : 21
Bottom left : 44 countries
Not only that, but she suddenly ...
(At this point, RIGHT AT THIS POINT, Mom hears a character on the television say, "Have You talked to Dan lately?") (After that, the name DANIEL was mentioned a few times.) (SUNDANCE channel, Title : Sam The Man) (Dad and Justine are watching telly.) (Dad in fact repeated for Mom's benefit, "Have you talked to Dan lately?"
Omg ... talk about perfect timing.
Mom said out loud, "Yes, I'm talking to Daniel right now ..." :D
So, anyway as she was saying, she suddenly noticed the page number:
You don't say.
Mom pointed, "Look at the page ... 94 ..."
Your birth year.
Omg. MA and SON ... 21 ... 44 ... 94 ...
ZAP ZAP ZAP.
You really do know how to pick the page, Daniel.
Had it been a page on ... on ... not on doll house, she might not have bothered to read the small prints.
Oh gosh, Son.
Truly, we are so connected.
Thank You Jesus for His resurrection.
After our coffee, we left the store, Walking to the lift, we passed the MAISON shop. That's Dad with the NEMO tee shirt. That's the MAISON shop.
You can't really see the name of the store, can You, with the dark wood? Well, if You try to look at it at an angle, You will.
Oh, and Mom just noticed the photo (in her cell) she took last night of the telly screen showing :
RED WHITE AND BLUE
Keep the zaps coming, Son ...
Always, always remind Mom that You're right beside her ...
Red White and Blue, Daniel ... <3
