Sleeping is one of my favorite pastimes. While I sleep, I have very vivid dreams and I am lucky enough to remember many of them. I have several different “types” of dreams:
1. Some dreams are just what I think is just my mind “sweeping out the closets”. These are dreams that don’t make any sense. Just a bunch of weird things thrown together.
2. Many of my dreams are “memory” dreams. These are the dreams where I get to relive some wonderful day some the past.
3. I also have “recurring” dreams. Usually these are something my mind seems to be trying to work out.
4. My favorite dreams are what I call “visit” dreams. These are those dreams where I wake up with the feeling that I actually spent time with Ryan, Dad or Granny.
I have had two very memorable visit dreams with Ryan. The first one I was in a big room and Ryan came running from a door at the opposite corner. We hugged so tight my arms ached. I asked him some questions, and these were his answers:
“I am fine. It is great to not be sick anymore.”
“I miss you guys, but it is different here. I don’t feel sad.”
“You have to go now. You aren’t supposed to be here yet.”
I woke up hugging my pillow, with an unbelievable sense of peace. I really felt that I had been allowed to hear from him. It was an amazing gift.
Today, I hope you enjoy a beautiful dream.
Thank you for the gift of dreams. Thank you for giving us those little vacations for our mind while our body rests and recovers from the day. Today I ask that you let our loved ones that are already there with you, know that we miss them and look forward to seeing them again.
