My Almost Son


There is a boy named Josh,

Oh how nice he is – my gosh!

If I had a son, that’s how I’d want him to be.

Always kind and caring for me.

He never says no when I need his help.

His voice is light and full of pep.

Even when he’s down he sounds upbeat,

The kind of young man people love to meet.

A son like him would really be neat.

I try to help him with intuitive motherly advice.

And in return he treats me nice.

I know I can count on him,

because he has proven to be a great friend.


So Josh my dear your mom should be proud of you,

because if you were my son, I’d be proud of you too.

May God bless you with a healthy, long, and prosperous life,

and may he also bring you a wonderful wife.

I know these are the things you desire

And I know God will give you these gifts

because you deserve them just for whom you are.


Love, light, and blessings.

Josh is a young man from this area who used to have me on his radio show when he was here. He is my webmaster and friend. He now lives in Idaho and is still in radio. I am waiting for an invitation to be on his show via long distance. I am sure some people like psychics in Idaho. SMILE!

i believe we can find children and parents amongst those we meet that are not our own flesh and blood, but that we bond with and feel closely connected, and I am sure Idaho would welcome psychics too.
