I was coming out of the mall today and it was really bright, and almost ran into a young man. He turned around and it took my breath away, he looked SO much like my son! My son was very distinctive , extremely fair- but it was his smile that did it. That would have been enough, but he said "excuse me! have a cheery day! (hence my name CheerryG!" No-one has said that to me in 5 yrs . Only my son said that- Then I looked down and saw a pure white small rock, my son would pick them up on walks we would take, he told me he would use them to remember things. Now that wouldnt be that unusual , but I was right outside the door of Target, and there wasnt anything else on the ground. I must have stood there with that rock in my hand for a good 5min or so. All of this happening so quick and together made it a very powerful experience! I did not see the young man again, after I looked at the ground then back up(?)
