a shooting star



I saw one of these last night. I was thinking about my stepdad and thought it was a sign.

I believe in signs. I haven't seen a shooting stars in years. Many many years. And then last night, one appeared.

I was feeling guilty because I just bought a new mountain bike and I spent more than I wanted to. My budget was $280 tops and the bike was $480. I was having buyer's remorse.

I was using some of the money I inherited from when my stepdad died. My mum said, "He would have wanted you to spend it something you really wanted, he would have been glad." Still, for some reason it's hard for me to spend money on myself like that.--when it's a want and not a need.

I was looking out the window and saying thanks in my head to my stepdad and remembering/missing him when the shooting star went by.

I know many will say "shooting stars happen" and "you're just connecting your thought with a natural event," and I am. But I know that star was his way of saying he's watching out for me, and saying "You're welcome."
