    I always like coming back to this post for inspiration. You're right silverfreak...your mother was with you...and she helped you find that dime.

    I know exactly how you felt. I actually used a detector in my grandmother's yard at her lake house, about an hour before we spread her ashes there. It might have seemed insensitive to the rest of the family, but I think they understood I was hoping for a sentimental souvenir. The house dated to the 1930s and I found some Wheaties from that time period, but didn't get the Merc dime I was hoping for.

    Near the front door of the house I noticed some tiny blue flowers. They were Forget-me-nots.

    Bryce, Just wanted to tell you. That was your mother telling you that everything is OK and she is with you when ever you need her . I had a similar experience 8 years ago . It starts out like this . My mother was not feeling well so my sister took her to the ER just to see what was wrong and they could not find anything at all wrong with her so they just kept her over night for observation . I went and saw her when she was in her hospital room with my grandmother and mom said she was feeling much better. So i covered her with a blanket and told her i loved her and to call me when she was discharged the next day and i would come pick her up and take her home she said OK ill call you in the morning . I went home that night i think around 7 Pm . well at 2.30 AM the hospital called me and said your mother is coding you better come right away.So i raced to the hospital and when i got there they where beating on her chest in her room and then the doc comes out and tells me she is Gone . Will this totally killed me inside because her and i were very close and i loved her very much.. I went home and started making all the arrangements and was just so very upset.. There was people in and out crying and bringing food and all of that and then the next day we found out that my wife's father committed suicide and we where a very close family so we had that to deal with that a day after my mother died .On day 3 i had to get away from the house so i got my bother in law and we went down to a beach here in Delaware I needed to just walk by myself so i was on the beach by myself going north and my bother in law went south . I need to stress this is a beach probably 60 yard wide by miles long and not another soul on it . So here i go walking down the beach in the middle of the afternoon with my detector and i was crying and felt like i had the wait of the world on my shoulders i looked up in the sky and said Mom if there is really something up there and you are with me i need a sign because i just find it hard to believe. Well let me tell you the second i asked for that it was like someone hit me in the head with a hammer and sat me down on my butt in the sand . A warm feeling came over my whole body and a peace like i had never felt before came over me and to top all that off the detector went off and i remember saying there is no way I'm going to dig that . All this happened in a split second, Well i dug it and it was Mary with her arms wide open on a pendant Just to say dont worry everything is OK .. I thought i was going crazy. But the peace i felt was nothing like i have ever felt sense and I'm not a religious man and yes i do wear that around my neck . So what you felt i think was very real. The more people i tell about this story the more i find out just about everybody has some kind of story like this so i guess there is really something going on up there !! Thanks Mark
