I talked to my mother on the phone last night. That might not sound like such a surprising thing. But those of you who know me personally are wondering if I’ve dropped my basket, lost my marbles, gone off the deep end. You see, my mom passed away 4 ½ years ago. Not a day goes by that I don’t think of her several times. And I miss her more everyday. I promise you that there will be many mom stories in my blogging future. She was smart, beautiful inside and out and one of the goofiest people I’ve ever met. I’m pretty sure the goofy gene has been passed down to me and most definitely on to D1 and D2. (I’m so proud)
Last night I had a dream. And it was strange as all dreams are. (At least all my dreams are strange) It’s so weird how situations can make perfect sense in your dream and then you wake up and say, “what the…?” I won’t go into details because then not only the people who know me but everyone will think/know I’m NUTS! In my dream, I called my mom to tell her some bad news. I asked how she was and what she was doing. She said she was fine but that she had some bad news. A family member was rushed to the hospital and had to have emergency surgery. She said everything was fine now and I didn’t have to worry. I didn’t deliver my bad news but assured her that I would be right there. I hung up the phone and then woke up. (sort of) In my half sleep, half awake stage, I was quite distraught over the bad news my mother had given me. Then all of a sudden, I really woke up and was delighted that I had just talked to my mom on the phone. I then tried desperately to go back to sleep to see if she might call back. Of course I knew this would never happen but one can always hope.
During the 4 ½ years my mom has been gone, I have never once dreamt about her. I can’t even describe how good it felt to hear her voice. I can only hope that it won’t be another 4 ½ years before I get to hear her in my dreams again.
Do you have someone you’ve lost who you would love to speak to again? Has this dream thing ever happened to you? Am I NUTS?
