What a moving note to find after all this time.
Now go to sleep.

This post brings back memories of the same childhood dream/nightmare, and of me going to stand by my parent's bed, where I would be comforted & later taken back to my bed.
Now it is my turn to help & comfort my parents, as Dad is 87 and is in hospital - the continuous wheel of family members helping and caring for each other over the years, it is, what families do.

Oh, I love this story, Corey. It just has such a feeling of safety and home. It brought happy tears to my eyes. Everything is making me cry these days. The note in the statue did me in.

Sweet parents to comfort you each night.

Oh so lucky we were/are to have such loving parents.

Lucky and blessed who have wonderful parents to comfort and protect them.
We all have fears and anxieties in life.
Now more so many are expressing anxiety through this pandemic.
May we all be comforted by love, prayers and support from our loved ones.
It sure helps to be reassured that this too shall pass.
Music is a healing balm for us all.
Prayers and much love

Lovely story and lovely to have that intimate piece of history in the statue....Jennifer

Such a lovely and heartwarming story of your parents and their love for you, Corey. It made me smile. It is good to love and be loved. I am glad you tucked that sweet note right back where it was placed in the folds of the statue. Sending you prayers and of course, love.

All those memories come flooding back when someone you love is sick. My parents used to do the same for me after my sister got her own bedroom. I hated having my own room! My grand daughter could only fall asleep unless the radio played “jazz.” I hope you can get rest now.

Crying, too!

Thanks for sharing this, your memories and
the beauty of steadfast love.

Trusting God for peace and reassurance for you and your loved ones.

I loved reading this story. I wish so much that I had parents like you always describe, what a childhood you must have had! I am so glad you share these things!

I am so touched by the note you found and I love that you put it back into its sacred space.

I just love you so much for all the goodness you share.
