Vivid Dreams

Yesterday was a real rollercoaster ride. My oldest brother went off dialysis last week and we knew his passing was imminent.  I received a call at work from his girlfriend early yesterday morning that he was gone.  On top of working a double shift, I had to contact my other siblings to let them know. I won't go into all our family stuff, because everyone has one and we all have our issues. Anyway, I was exhausted when I got home last night around 10:30 and fell asleep rather easily after a cup of hot chocolate.  My darling husband took Jo out before he went to work this morning so I could sleep and although I didn't think I would drift back to sleep, I did.  I had very vivid dreams and I had a startling vision of my Mom...so startling I thought it was real, but even though I called out to her, she didn't answer.  That's what woke me up and I still have this strange feeling. Maybe I will be visited again tonight! 

I hope to get a little sewing in this morning before I head to work...call it therapeutic, call it...I'm tired of my cardigan being worn by Valentine and not me...maybe I can bust it out in time to wear to work.   Maybe...if I get off the computer...have a pleasant Sunday everyone!!!

So sorry about your brother. I do believe though that some dreams are more than just dreams, and I hope seeing your mother left you with a good feeling.

I'm very sorry about your brother. My prayers go out to you and your family. My mom is obviously having very clear visions in her dreams these days. She is seeing her mom and siblings. I wish I could get in her head and see them with her.

You know Julia, when my Dad got close he could see my Mom standing at the end of the bed. He'd say "Can't you see your Mother...she's right there!" I told him it was okay, he could go be with her. I have seen some pretty amazing things as a nurse at the end of life.

Hugs to you. It is always sad to lose a loved one that was close to you.

I'm sorry to hear of the loss of your brother. I dreamed of my grandfather a few weeks ago for the first time in a couple of years. It was nice to see him again.

First off, thanks for your post on my blog! I saw this post a couple days ago and also meant to talk to you about it. Sorry to hear of the loss of your brother..it's hard to lose a loved one, especially a sibling, which I have. BUT, I loved your post on the visitation of your Mother...I truly believe in that and your posting gave me shivers. (Have some stories of my own)...One of my favorite subjects ;)
