Oh Shawn sweetie, but you DID get the messages from her!!! Just not at that particular moment of the reading! You’re getting her messages to you NOW, which is just as good!!! The bean stew- signature message is HUGE, don’t you think?
Bottom line is what it all means….that she is around, watching, loving you, and still very much involved with your lives!!!!
I’ve never heard of bean stew…what’s in it besides beans? Is that an Irish thing? (I should know because my family is 75% Irish!)November 12, 2006 at 5:48 pm #111439JeannieParticipant
:tissue: OH – I am so glad that you found your validations. That is so special. I think that it is also interesting that Great-grandmother made 3 baby sets. Gifts for 3 babies. (not necessarily all of them your babies).
Love and blessings

I had never heard of it either until I was on the phone with my mother and she told me that my Grandpa asked her to make it (I guess his mom, the great-grandmother I was speaking of, used to make it for him) And it was so weird because as soon as she said bean stew I could hear John’s voice in my head saying “someone was know for a bean stew or bean dish that they used to make” . . . it was then that a light bulb turned on in my head! (It probably is an Irish dish . . . my maiden name is Hagerty)

When she was know for always making one of these baby sets, and she would give them to people at baby showers or when they would have the baby. When she started getting older she knew that she might not be around to see all of her great-granddaughters (myself and my sisters) have babies, but she wanted us to have a baby set from her anyway, so she made them and put our name on the box and packed them away. Once she did die, my mother stored the baby sets until they were needed.
It is really special to know that Great-Grandma was thinking of us, and our babies, before they were even born! Those baby sets will be something that we will hand down to continue the tradition of giving the baby set even though Great-Grandma is not around to make them anymore.

I too have never heard of bean stew. What a strong validation to get! Congrats!November 13, 2006 at 7:39 pm #111556JudeParticipant
Shawn, congratulations on your reading and your “oh my gosh” moment! :) Those are the validations that have so much meaning for us. Have faith that you got (and understood!) exactly what you needed, when you needed it!

What an incredible gift from your great-grandmother. Her making the 3 baby sets because she knew she wouldn’t be around to give them in person is one of the sweetest gestures I’ve ever heard. What a wonderful sense of family she had.
And, it is inspiring. I am now trying to think of something to leave my grandchildren that they can pass on to their children. What is that song, “and the wheel just keeps on turning”?

First of all, welcome and congratulations on an amazing reading, Shawn.
I agree that your great-grandmother making those baby sets is one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever heard. It made me think of something I saw in a TV show once. The character was a fairly young woman with a young daughter about 2. The mother had a terminal illness and knew she wouldn’t be around to “raise” her daughter. She made a videotape for the daughter, and in it she held up all of these outfits that she had bought for the daughter to take her through all of the special occasions of her life… and this one is for your first day of school, etc. It was all interspersed with advice and words of inspiration for the daughter. I just remember that I was crying like a baby throughout the whole thing, but I thought it was such a beautiful idea. Your great-grandmother has inspired me.
