I wanted to share of the latest (and greatest) wink that I have received from Carleigh. I will start off to say that I have tried to come up with a way as to explain what happened but so far I haven’t.
The experience happened driving back to the cabin from the Grace for the Journey conference on October 13th. It was very late at night and it was raining. We were all tired and I was having trouble staying away (like slurring my words tired). I glanced into the rearview mirror and noticed something on the back window that I had never seen before. It was a very small handprint in the upper middle of the window. It was obviously the handprint of a baby. I tried to think and there was no occasion when any of my children would have put their hand on the window where it was. They have never been on the outside at that height and closeness to the window to make it and they cannot reach the window from the back seat at the age the handprint would make them.
I studied the handprint as best as I could while driving and it dawned on me that the handprint looked like Carleigh’s handprint-the one that is tattooed on my shoulder. I just couldn’t believe it! I kept looking at it and thought how amazing that was. I meant to take a picture of it later but when I remembered to do it I could not find any trace at all of the handprint on the inside or outside of the van.
Was it really Carleigh’s handprint? Was she trying to keep me alert while driving? Was she protecting me? I don’t have definite answers to these questions. I want to believe it is Carleigh’s handprint that was on that window and since there is no other explanation for it that is what I am choosing to believe right now.
Since then I have seen the handprint on 2 other occasions at home. I have continued to look for traces of the handprint on the inside and outside of the van with no success.
If this is indeed from her then thank you my sweet girl. Mommy will cherish it!
