Dreams

Last night I had the strangest, yet most comforting dream.  I don't remember too much of it, but I was sitting in a Doctor's office waiting to get a flu shot (random much?).  I kept waiting and waiting and waiting, but it was taking forever; yet, I was the only one sitting in the waiting room.  I started stressing because I was supposed to meet my mom at the airport for our flight to our vacation destination.  (My mom passed away 3.5 years ago)  I remember that while I was on the phone with my mom she kept emphasizing how important it was that I make it to the airport on time.  After waiting for the Dr. for over an hour, I realized that this flu shot was obviously just not that important and it was time to hit the road and head to the airport.  My dream ended when I jumped in the cab (umm, I never take cabs-why didn't I just drive to the airport?!) and headed off to meet my mom.  I'm still not sure whether or not I made it in time!

Why would this crazy dream be comforting you ask?  Well, since my mom passed away, I find myself having dreams about her every now and then (but certainly not often enough!).  I love it.  If you've ever lost someone close to you, you may know the feeling I'm talking about.  I get to see and talk to her in my dreams and there is something just so comforting about that.  The crazy thing is, these dreams always come at the most perfect time.  Yesterday, (remember? when I was all whiny and depressing) was a hard day for me, so having a dream about my mom made me feel so much better, and allowed me to put things back into perspective.  Crazy how the world works, huh?   

And while on the topic of yesterday I just wanted to thank the 2 people who took the time to leave me sweet comments.  While I wish this situation and these feelings upon no one, it is somewhat comforting knowing others are right there with me.  So THANK YOU!  I was worried the post might be off-putting (and to some of you, it may have been) but it made me feel better just to be able to get it all out.

  1. I'm glad the dream came at a time when you needed some comforting. I'm so sorry about the loss of your mom, but I'm glad that dreaming about her helps sometimes.
