Notting Hill was on the television this evening.
Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts.
Old, old movie.
Wait a minute ...
Mom asked out loud, "Hey, what is the theme song for this movie?"
Dad shrugged and said he doesn't know.
Hmmm ... she knows this, your mother ... but couldn't put a finger on it.
A few minutes later ... OMG ... of course! How could she forget???
You say it best ... when you say nothing at all ...
The theme song.
The song that, that describes our --- connection.
The zap song.
Mom immediately reached for her cell to check the time.
It was 17:31 pm.
Secret Code : 21
She yelled to Dad, "Son's zapping me ... tomorrow is his 21st ..."
Big, big smile.
It's amazing how You can speak right to my heart
Without saying a word, You can light up the dark
Try as I may I could never explain
What I hear when You don't say a thing
The smile on your face lets me know that You need me
There's a truth in your eyes saying You'll never leave me
The touch of your hand says You'll catch me, wherever I fall
You say it best, when You say nothing at all
Earlier in the morning, Love By Design was on telly.
Oh, she had seen that.
It's like ... DANIEL DANIEL DANIEL ... from beginning to end. :D
First thing in the morning, and she was greeted with that. Danielle in the movie of course, but who cares. Think out of the box. Be flexible. Yup, you have to be creative and bend the rules a little when you are connecting with your loved one in heaven.
And why? Because everything is possible.
GOD said so.
THINK -- and it becomes ...
SAY -- and it is ...
Mom let the television go on, increased the volume while she went about with her morning house chores ... which included drinking up her shake and swallowing 20 over nutritional pills.
Gulp gulp gulp ...
On Sunday morning, we were in church ...
There was a little boy who was in front of us. He was in a bright orange Spiderman t-shirt and bright orange shoes. Mom's eyes were on his every move. She had wanted to snap a photo but could not. She felt the eyes of the people behind her -- watching.
In fact, Mom had whispered to Justine, "Can you try get a photo of that orange boy?"
Justine asked why.
Mom replied impatiently, "He's a zap ..."
Anyway, to cut a long story short, we did not manage to take a photo of the boy ... even though at one point, he came really near to us ... playing on the railing beside us.
Mom thought of your spiderman cup and your spiderman hand-sign ... and all that bright orange ... as we were walking to the car (after mass).
In the car ...
Dad started the engine, and there on the dashboard, the time showed
Oh my ...
You were definitely with us. :D
There's only 1 way 2 say
those 3 words, 4 You-ooo ...
I love You ... <3
(Plain White Ts)
Anyway, after Mass on Sunday morning, we went back home.
Justine helped Mom with one of the concert dances.
We decided to do GREASED LIGHTNING for the boys' item.
So we spent the whole of our Sunday afternoon going through the Greased Lightning song and creating cool moves and "I've got ah-titude" steps to teach the boys when school reopened after the Raya break.
How fun was that?
Evening came ... and Dad said, "Let's go for dinner."
By the time, we had completed the whole dance routine.
It's gonna be awesome!
So anyway, we were in the car ... guess what!
Oh my, you're so not gonna believe it but about a minute after we got into the car ... GREASE came on the radio! OMG ... Mom was like, "What? What are the chances? GREASE??? OMG Jus, your brother knows we're doing GREASE for the concert ... He knows, he knows ... Hahaha ..."
The time was 7:27 pm.
At first glance, that was not a zap time.
At second glance ... hmm, let's see ... nope, still not.
Let's try a third glance ... third's a charm, don't they say?
Decode : 21
Do You see that???
Yes yes, be flexible.
Nothing is impossible.
Say --- and it is.
Think --- and it becomes.
7 divide by 7 equals 1
Secret code : 21
Oh my, she's good.
Yes yes, perfect timing all the time.
Everywhere we are, there You'll be. <3
Honestly, what are the chances???
Had we gone down to the car just 2 minutes later, we would have missed the zap song.
GREASE ... for cryin' out loud ...
After a whole afternoon of working on the GREASED LIGHTNING song, we came to the car to hear the ---
TEENNGGGGG (intro of GREASE song) ....
ZAP ZAP ZAP ... :D
Yes Daniel ... We're thinking about You and missing You so very much on your 66th month today, with JESUS and MAMA MARY in Heaven somewhere over the rainbow.
We love You so very much, Daniel ...
Keep the zaps coming, Son ... <3
