Something Extraordinary

Six years ago when my father died, I wished that I would have a dream of him, a visitation of sorts. It never happened. Occasionally I would see a tall, white-haired man from the back and think I was seeing my father, then only to be disappointed when I would realize it was not him. I don't wish for this dream anymore but last night something extraordinary happen.

I wasn't asleep yet but floating in that half awake twightlight time when suddenly my mother was with me. She was bending over me and reaching out to touch my cheek. I felt myself rise up to meet her gentle kiss on my forehead. I felt a smile slowly spread up from my lips to my eyes like a hesitant wave that suddenly crashes on the shore, my face engulfed in the warmth of that kiss. I was stunned but I knew, finally KNEW, that my mom was okay. I woke up this morning feeling completely and perfectly at peace.

I have also had the comfort of that particular type of dream, both from my Grandma and my Mom. They've actually come to me in dreams several times over the years..
So glad seeing your Mom brought you peace. ..
((hugs))

This is incredibly beautiful to read Annie. I so believe the moment was 100% what you believe it was. No one can ever take this knowledge from you. I bet your dad will be by soon now that you know how it happens. I have had a similar type experience with my Gram.

You are so lucky to be open to this reality.
