The Golden Key

The Golden Key

Teresa’s visit

 

Cara is just recovering from an illness, when a glow catches her eye

It is coming from the corner of the room where her teddy sits in his chair.

He just stares as he always does with eyes of brown glass.

But there seems to be a glow about his eyes today,

It is the reflection of a soft light from a doorway that opened up by his chair.

There in the doorway stands a beautiful nun, whose face would grace an angel

The nun seemed to drift across the room to where Cara was lying

She spoke in a gentle voice saying that her name was Teresa

“I look after the children that are not well and give them comfort”

She said quietly, sitting slowly on the bedside chair

I couldn’t think of anything but love for the lady,

Teresa visited me for several days and we talked of many things

One day she said that on the next day, our sweet Sadie would like to come to visit me if it was alright

I said that I would love to meet her and talk, especially if her ways were as lovely as Teresa’s

Teresa told me that Sadie looked after all the children that came to her.

She was Sadie to all children, they loved her and she loved them all,

With a love that reached out that would make the Angels cry

It seemed such a long time to the next day as I waited for Sadie

 

Sadie’s First visit

 

“Ello” the little girl said as she skipped across my room and just plonked on my bed

What you doing in my room I will call my Mummy

“My name is Sadie, what’s yours”?

“Shush, shush”, she went, touching her little mouth with her fingers

“Just wanted someone else to talk to”

“Oh, Ok” I said,”but where are you from”?

“I’m from the children over there”, she said pointing.

There in the middle of my room was a door

A little door I hadn’t really noticed before

It seemed to have a glow around its edges.

“I look after the children as I is the oldest one there”.

“It’s our play place when we just want to have fun,

And it’s is there to make the children feel safe and happy”.

“I’m Cara, spelt with a C”

“How old are you Cara with a C”? Sadie asked.

“I am older than six now she said “

“Tis lovely that we are young ones aint it”.

“We can spend lots of time playing and not lots of time to learn”.

“But where I am we still go to lessons”

Sadie just laughed for a while and snuggled a bit on the bed.

“Cara have you been sicky? cus Teresa told me you needed a bit of fun”.

“Oh! Teresa she beamed “

“Teresa is that the nun lady that looks like an Angel she said”?

“Yes!, she visits the children in our group when they are not very well”.

“Sometimes I’s naughty and follows her love to where she’s been”.

“That’s how I finded you Sadie beamed”

“Did you want to play, or just talk about lovely things”?

“We lives in a place that we make up, and the games we play”.

“Well you know Pooh sticks, and hoppy scotch, hide and seek and lots of things”?

“There are lots of friends there, there’s Charlie, Julie, Rebecca, and Robert most of the time?.

“Robert He don’t talk,”!

Then we have children that visit us from time to time who we help

We also have a very large cuddly Bear he’s called Shuma,

He is really lovely as we snuggles him to sleep and he is so soft and cuddly

He is just love, and if we are not sure of anything, he holds us close

Or just stands up big between us and anything we not like

When you are a bit better if you like, we can go and see them and play there

Shall we play with your toys for a little while?

Oh woops I have to go, Tuo, the guardian is calling me

I will pop through tomorrow if you want me to

Clara’s eyes lit up, and said it will be luvely to see you again

Sadie turned and sort of glided to the little door she had come through

There was a splash of colour that seemed to spell love

Just in the centre of Cara’s room and the little door closed

Cara blinked and rubbed her eyes thinking what a lovely dream

 

Through the Door

 

“Ello” it me again the voice came as she jumped on the bed

I thought I was dreaming I said and thought that you was a dream girl

I am really that sort of thing, but we different than dreams

At least you can talk and walk with us which dreamies can’t do

I looked at the little clock on the table it said 8 O’clock which was in the evening

Sadie laughed her little laugh

Sparkles of colour seemed to jump around the room

Whoops sorry must keep little feelings, as I gets excited sometimes

Did you want to peep through the door today Cara, she beamed to me.

I felt a little feared, but then the glow of colour that Sadie had let out

Reached out and touched me making things just gentle and full of love

The love I felt was the same as when my Mother would pick me up

And when she would kiss me and tell her how much I was loved

At this I felt only belonging to Sadie’s ways and a great trust grew

Lets have a look then Sadie, I said jumping off the bed

Sadie held out her hand, linked with mine and walked to the little door

It was so easy to walk through the little door, it seemed to fit

Then it moved open to let us through.

Behind the door was a beautiful garden with every flower you could think of

Not that I knew that many.

There the pathway that led to a gate that opened up onto a meadow

The green of the meadow was such a green that my Aunty would have cried

She loved green, and came from a place called Ireland, I think.

It was her most favourite colour

The meadow had daisies and buttercups and lots of flowers

That someone older might have known but to me they were just a lovely show of colour

Sadie said listen, and there in my ears came the sound of children laughing

At the bottom of the meadow was a beautiful stone bridge

On the bridge there were a small group of children looking over one side,

Then running to the other side laughing,

I thought that’s just like my Pooh Bear book where they play pooh sticks

Sadie must have noticed my eyes wide open as she said

Yes they are playing Pooh sticks, come and meet them

“Ello” a little chorus came back with “it’s Sadie” It’s Sadie

We seemed to be caught in a warm glow and I loved it

“This is Cara” Sadie said, and over they ran

This is Rebecca; she is 8 1/2 going on 9 1/2.

There stood the beautiful little girl with lovely dark brown hair,

Which peeped out from her bonnet in dark ringlets?

I remember seeing old pictures of children dressed the way Rebecca dressed,

Hello Rebecca, I prompted, as Sadie had told me that Rebecca never spoke while on the earth plain.

Hello Cara she replied, don’t worry about me speaking, she said to put me at ease.

When I came here my Mother met me which was really wonderful.

I missed her so much, and I found that I could then think speak to her,

Now I can think talk to everyone, at which she beamed out so much love that it pushed me back a little

This is Charlie, Sadie said.

He’s our lovely channels Baby boy, but a bit growed up now.

I will talk of our channel a bit later, when you have learned more about us.

Charlie’s about 10 always with a lovely smile on his naughty round face, and golden hair all curly.

Hi Charlie! I called and he just beamed a loving smile and said hello.

The one holding back a little is Julie; she’s so prim and proper today, which surprises us sometimes.

With her lovely blonde curly natural hair flowing as sunshine sometimes does

She has little rose bud lips, and the most beautiful blue eyes,

Oh! Sadie said, don’t forget to notice her shoes, they are either black patent leather.

Or red according to how she feels whispered Sadie.

Hello Julie I said and there was a gentle colour surrounding me that felt very warm.

And of course Robert, a smart little boy, he’s about 7 but he never speaks either way, think talk or with his voice

One day we will hear him, eh Robert, Sadie said

Robert just smiled at her

There are lots of things to learn here Cara

But it is a loving fun place for you to visit, when ever you wish to

We will return to your room now as we have plenty of time to learn things

That will be the fun side, but we can do it in another day, as we have to go to school soon.

I called out bye to the children.

I hope I can come and see you lots more, as it is so lovely here

Sadie walked with me back across the field to the gate

Then up the garden to the little door

The little door seemed to welcome us as it opened into my bedroom

Sadie stood for a while looking around my room, as if listening

Then with a great smile, that even made Sadie laugh she said

The Guardians say it is ok for you to visit us, and that I can give you a key

Sadie felt in her pockets for a while

Then laughed as she found that she already had two keys on her neck chain

The two small keys looked as if they were gold

But as Sadie gave one to me, it was so very light, it was tickly like a feather, and fitted snugly into my hand

The Key just went, Oh I shouted I’ve lost it already

Sadie put on her impish smile again and took me over to the door

As Sadie approached the door, the key was once more snugly in my hand

At this Sadie said, it is time for me to return to the other children Cara

So in the evening time, or whenever you have time, just pop through and visit us

Sadie walked to the door which faded into the room with a tiny shimmer

I looked at the little clock on the table it said 8 O’clock as if.

I had to smile and then I returned to my bed and snuggled down with my big teddy bear

I must have fallen to sleep very quickly.

 

Trying the key

 

Cara looked around her little bedroom and with a lovely smile remembering yesterday evening

This was when Sadie gave Cara the key to the door.

Cara sat on the edge of her bed, starting to doubt that anything had happened.

Jumping off the bed she very slowly crossed the room to the corner where the door had been on the last two evenings.

Slowly her right hand began to tingle and itch a little, there forming on the palm of her hand was a tiny golden key, a very large grin spread across her face and a feeling of her mothers love crept inside of her.

There just a pace away was the door, Cara went to put the key in the place that looked like a keyhole, there was a sigh and an opening appeared not as a door opening, but as shimmering gateway.

Cara just ran forward, trying to say stay open I am here, as if she thought, it would go away.

The other side was as before though seeming to be a little brighter, there surrounding her was a soft glow that felt like laughing in colour.

Cara ran down the path to the gate, through the gate and out into the meadow, there at the bottom was the bridge and two of the children playing Pooh sticks.

Hello Charlie she said having seen who was playing.

It was Charlie and Rebecca, Hello Cara they said in one voice that flowed toward her in lots of colours.

Is Sadie here today she asked, but before she had finished saying today Sadie was there shimmering at first but settling into the Sadie we all know.

Busy, busy, she sent out with a few dear, dears to play with. Let’s go Cara we will go and meet Shuma

As we walked along there was a beautiful bench, which Sadie said had been put there for our channel and her husband to sit on when they visited us. I didn’t ask about that as we arrived at the edge of the forest

We then came to the edge the trees shimmering in the golden sun

There under a large tree, was what looked to be a very large bear, but Cara seemed to have a little problem with seeing him with a sharp edge to his form.

“Shuma” called Sadie I have brought Cara to meet you that was it there were no more words needed as from Shuma came a feeling of cuddly love that showered Cara with Snuggles, the ones she use to get when her Mum would hold her, when wrapped in her duvet.

There was an instant love passed between Cara and the great bear, then words came over her softly, softly, “Hello little one, it’s lovely to see you here with Sadie and the other children, you must be very special.”

Sadie and Cara sat down with Shuma and snuggled into his coat that just felt like softest down and Cara nearly went to sleep.

“We must have a look around Cara” Sadie said softly, there is so much to see but things change from day to day, as we wish them to be, or if we add something here or there she said.

The stream sparkled and seemed to sing, and the two children ran together along the bank, to where there was a lovily bungalow, that seemed quite modern as bungalows go.

The door opened as they reached it and there in view came a beautiful lady, wrapped up in old fashioned cloths but not too old fashioned and a lace edged pinafore tied at the waist

“This is Sally” Sadie said, we always come to see Sally and have some tea with her.

Sally has the most beautiful garden here or anywhere, where ever that is.

“Two teas with two sugars” Sally said and brought them in, “And here are some special fairy cakes for our new visitor, putting the small plate between the two girls

Sally’s tea is always with two sugars Sadie said to Cara, after tea the two girls walked out into the garden, the garden here she said is one of the most beautiful things you can see.

Well the garden was so pretty, that Cara had never seen one like it before, every flower you could think of was there and in full bloom with colours that made the rainbow dip at its ends in awe.

Sally knew so many types of flowers, and would blend them in with the others as she remembered them, the colours seemed to be a little different than Cara was use to, and there were many more colours that she had ever seen before. Sadie said that they were think colours and said no more about it.

Sally, it is told that she lived on the earth plain in a Terraced house built way back whenever, and all Sally ever wanted was a Bungalow with a lovely garden.

So when Sally came to us this is where she stayed, with her love of all flowers and especially the children, not ever wanting to journey on.

Cara seemed to tire a little, and Sadie had said that being there to long, which would make little ones tired, so Cara said that it was time for her to sleep.

The door just appeared there next to Sadie; Sadie said night, night sleep tight, Cara, sending her some love with a broad smile and glowing colours.

Cara walked through into her room picking up her lovely teddy bear as she crossed to her bed.

Creeping under the covers with a glow still flickering around her face she dropped off to sleep.

 

Cara pt 3

Cara looked around her little bedroom and with a lovely smile remembering yesterday evening

This was when Sadie gave her the key to the door, Cara sat on the edge of her bed,

and started to doubt that anything had happened.

Jumping off the bed she very slowly crossed the room to the corner where the door had been on the last two evenings.

The other side was as before though seeming to be a little brighter than before, there surrounding her was a soft glow that felt like laughing in colour.

Cara ran down the path to the gate, through the gate and out into the meadow, there at the bottom was the bridge and two of the children playing Pooh sticks.

Hello Charlie she said having seen who was playing.

It was Charlie and Rebecca, Hello Cara they said in one voice, that ran toward her in lots of colours.

Is Sadie here today she asked, but before she had finished saying today Sadie was there shimmering at first but settling into the Sadie we all know.

Busy, busy she sent out with a few dear, dears to play with, come Cara we will go and meet Shuma

There under a large tree was what looked to be a very large bear, but Cara seemed to have a little problem with seeing him with a sharp edge to his form.

“Shuma” called Sadie I have brought Cara to meet you, that was it, there were no words needed as from Shuma came a feeling of cuddly love that showered Cara with Snuggles, the ones she use to get, when her Mum would  hold her when wrapped in her duvet.

There was an instant love passed between Cara and the great bear, then words came over her softly, softly, hello little one it’s lovely to see you here with Sadie and the other children, you must be very special.

The door was there next to Sadie,Sadie said night night sleep tight,Cara walked into, her room picking up her lovely teddy bear as she crossed the room.

Creeping under the covers with a glow still flickering around her face she dropped off to sleep

Cara pt 2

“Ello” it me again the voice came as she jumped on the bed

Sadie walked slowly back across the field to the gate

Then up the garden to the little door

The little door seemed to welcome them as it opened into Cara’s bedroom

Sadie stood for a while looking around Cara’s room as if listening

Then with a great smile that even made Sadie Laugh she said

The Guardians say it is ok for you to visit us and that I can give you a key

Sadie felt in her pockets for a while

Sadie walked to the door which faded into the room with a tiny shimmer

Cara looked at the little clock on the table it said8 O’clockas if

Cara just smiled and returned to her bed and snuggled down with her big teddy bear

Falling asleep very quickly

And of course Robert, a smart little boy, he’s about 7 but he never speaks either way, think talk or with his voice

One day we will hear him, eh Robert, Sadie said

Robert just smiled at her

There are lots of things to learn here Cara

But it is a loving fun place for you to visit, when ever you wish to

We will return to your room now as we have plenty of time to learn things

That will be the fun side, but we can do it in another day, as we have to go to school soon.

I called out bye to the children.

I hope I can come and see you lots more, as it is so lovely here

Sadie walked with me back across the field to the gate

Then up the garden to the little door

The little door seemed to welcome us as it opened into my bedroom

Sadie stood for a while looking around my room, as if listening

Then with a great smile, that even made Sadie laugh she said

The Guardians say it is ok for you to visit us, and that I can give you a key

Sadie felt in her pockets for a while

Then laughed as she found that she already had two keys on her neck chain

The two small keys looked as if they were gold

But as Sadie gave one to me, it was so very light, it was tickly like a feather, and fitted snugly into my hand

The Key just went, Oh I shouted I’ve lost it already

Sadie put on her impish smile again and took me over to the door

As Sadie approached the door, the key was once more snugly in my hand

At this Sadie said, it is time for me to return to the other children Cara

So in the evening time, or whenever you have time, just pop through and visit us

Sadie walked to the door which faded into the room with a tiny shimmer

I looked at the little clock on the table it said 8 O’clock as if.

I had to smile and then I returned to my bed and snuggled down with my big teddy bear

I must have fallen to sleep very quickly.

Trying the key

 

Cara looked around her little bedroom and with a lovely smile remembering yesterday evening

This was when Sadie gave Cara the key to the door.

Cara sat on the edge of her bed, starting to doubt that anything had happened.

Jumping off the bed she very slowly crossed the room to the corner where the door had been on the last two evenings.

Slowly her right hand began to tingle and itch a little, there forming on the palm of her hand was a tiny golden key, a very large grin spread across her face and a feeling of her mothers love crept inside of her.

There just a pace away was the door, Cara went to put the key in the place that looked like a keyhole, there was a sigh and an opening appeared not as a door opening, but as shimmering gateway.

Cara just ran forward, trying to say stay open I am here, as if she thought, it would go away.

The other side was as before though seeming to be a little brighter, there surrounding her was a soft glow that felt like laughing in colour.

Cara ran down the path to the gate, through the gate and out into the meadow, there at the bottom was the bridge and two of the children playing Pooh sticks.

Hello Charlie she said having seen who was playing.

It was Charlie and Rebecca, Hello Cara they said in one voice that flowed toward her in lots of colours.

Is Sadie here today she asked, but before she had finished saying today Sadie was there shimmering at first but settling into the Sadie we all know.

Busy, busy, she sent out with a few dear, dears to play with. Let’s go Cara we will go and meet Shuma

As we walked along there was a beautiful bench, which Sadie said had been put there for our channel and her husband to sit on when they visited us. I didn’t ask about that as we arrived at the edge of the forest

We then came to the edge the trees shimmering in the golden sun

There under a large tree, was what looked to be a very large bear, but Cara seemed to have a little problem with seeing him with a sharp edge to his form.

“Shuma” called Sadie I have brought Cara to meet you that was it there were no more words needed as from Shuma came a feeling of cuddly love that showered Cara with Snuggles, the ones she use to get when her Mum would hold her, when wrapped in her duvet.

There was an instant love passed between Cara and the great bear, then words came over her softly, softly, “Hello little one, it’s lovely to see you here with Sadie and the other children, you must be very special.”

Sadie and Cara sat down with Shuma and snuggled into his coat that just felt like softest down and Cara nearly went to sleep.

“We must have a look around Cara” Sadie said softly, there is so much to see but things change from day to day, as we wish them to be, or if we add something here or there she said.

The stream sparkled and seemed to sing, and the two children ran together along the bank, to where there was a lovily bungalow, that seemed quite modern as bungalows go.

The door opened as they reached it and there in view came a beautiful lady, wrapped up in old fashioned cloths but not too old fashioned and a lace edged pinafore tied at the waist

“This is Sally” Sadie said, we always come to see Sally and have some tea with her.

Sally has the most beautiful garden here or anywhere, where ever that is.

“Two teas with two sugars” Sally said and brought them in, “And here are some special fairy cakes for our new visitor, putting the small plate between the two girls

Sally’s tea is always with two sugars Sadie said to Cara, after tea the two girls walked out into the garden, the garden here she said is one of the most beautiful things you can see.

Well the garden was so pretty, that Cara had never seen one like it before, every flower you could think of was there and in full bloom with colours that made the rainbow dip at its ends in awe.

Sally knew so many types of flowers, and would blend them in with the others as she remembered them, the colours seemed to be a little different than Cara was use to, and there were many more colours that she had ever seen before. Sadie said that they were think colours and said no more about it.

Sally, it is told that she lived on the earth plain in a Terraced house built way back whenever, and all Sally ever wanted was a Bungalow with a lovely garden.

So when Sally came to us this is where she stayed, with her love of all flowers and especially the children, not ever wanting to journey on.

Cara seemed to tire a little, and Sadie had said that being there to long, which would make little ones tired, so Cara said that it was time for her to sleep.

The door just appeared there next to Sadie; Sadie said night, night sleep tight, Cara, sending her some love with a broad smile and glowing colours.

Cara walked through into her room picking up her lovely teddy bear as she crossed to her bed.

Creeping under the covers with a glow still flickering around her face she dropped off to sleep.
