I was in the living room seated on the sofa, after having been gone all day with my husband and daughter. Husband was downstairs. I picked up the remote and pushed the "on" button. The screen became pure white and then a bright red heart appeared in the center of the screen, there was no sound and no channel indication only the pure white background with the bright red heart in the center of the pure whiteness, I stared at it for several minutes expecting it to change.
I thought perhaps it was a commercial about a perfume that made one fall in love or think about love, because of the heart, but then I started to think that this was not any TV program, I called for my husband to come upstairs, I told him to hurry, because I did not know how long the picture would remain, he came up the stairs and I said look at the TV, and explained that I had turned it on and this is what appeared, he stared at it and then said turn it off and see what happens, I said no, I want to enjoy it longer, so he grabbed the camera and took a picture, ( I am so glad that he did this) we both stared at it for several more minutes and then I went to click off the remote but before I could push the "off" button it clicked off itself.
I immediately clicked it back on again and the heart screen was now behind the television program, I clicked remote off again and on again and the heart was gone. This happened the evening of March 9, 2009, this would have been my daughters 30th birthday, several times during the day I had her to let me know if she was near, and she did, she sent me a a birthday heart and I have the picture framed beside my bed, this was an amazing sign, she has sent many signs to us but this one really was over the top. I called her sister afterwards and told what had happened, she was stunned, and when I saw her and showed her the picture, she didn't know how to understand it, even though she has received many signs herself.
