Olivia, Is That You?

We know Olivia is always with us; yet, she always appears when we least expect to see her. Olivia makes herself known to us, to our family members, and to our friends all the time.

We meet Adam on the ferry ride from Playa del Carmen to Cozumel. Adam and his family, who are from Utah, are doing something new this year for the holidays, too. Come to find out, not only is Adam going scuba diving like we are, he is part of our 6 person scuba group, and, he and his family are staying at the same hotel we are in Cancun. Sweetie, you must have met Adam's brother and are letting all of us know that. Olivia, Is That You?

Daddy sees Adam in the morning, but, we don't have a chance to meet his family. But, we do see Santa, Barney and Baby Bop. All three of them are parading around the pool and singing and dancing. Barney starts singing, "I love you, you love me, we're a happy family ... " and you always want to be picked up, dance to the music, and get a big hug and kiss at the end. We did that today too. We know, you are letting us know you are with us, on vacation, too. Olivia, Is That You?

It had been a just a horrible and rainy day for Kathy in Austin, Texas and then out of the corner of her eye she saw some color ... a most wonderful Rainbow.  You made her smile for the rest of the day. Kathy reflected how previously, time to time, she would request for you and the other Angels to keep an eye on her son Ryan while he was in Iraq.  You must have put in some good words with all your friends, and worked overtime, because y'all helped save his life.  Kathy thanks you for the Rainbow reminder today that you are still there watching over her and her family.

Last year you gave Kathy's sister Becky a Rainbow reminder, the day before your birthday.  Are you trying to tell us something? Olivia, Is That You?
