Spirit Guide

9cm x 9cm tile

It was part of our destiny to be home last weekend. Just out of the blue we were told to pack a bag, our seats were booked for a flight home for the weekend. As we had been away for 6 weeks this was a treat and for the fact it was Father's Day (here in Australia) we were happy to see the family.
After arriving home Paul received a message to visit our friend Kim in hospital. Kim and Paul have been friends since there teenage years sharing a great love for motorbikes but Kim's life challenge began when he became a quadraplegic after crashing his motorbike at only 17.
They still enjoyed many adventures together and with Kim's determination he bought another motorbike and attached a sidecar.
Kim also beacme an accomplished artist and developed a love for the American Indians which he would paint with a stiple effect.
Saturday afternoon Paul was fortunate to spend time with Kim going over the old days. Kim passed away early Sunday morning at the age of 55.
I believe Kim's will and his Spirit Guide made sure we were home last weekend, we were able to stay and Paul rode Kim's bike with pride to his funeral. It was Kim's wish.
