I kept wondering when I’d dream about my dad. It took a long time for me to dream about my mom after she died, so I figured it would happen sooner or later. Last night, I had the first dream that included my dad. I don’t remember most of the dream and my dad didn’t show up until the end anyway, but at the end I was sitting in the car in the garage reading something (who knows what that was all about, but whatever) and I saw a car pull up behind me in the driveway. I was trying to figure out who the driver was before he came into focus, and finally I realized it was my dad. He didn’t make eye contact with me at all. I remember saying “Dad?” and that’s when I woke up with a shudder (you know the kind – not when you’re cold, but when you have an emotional response to something). When I woke up, I felt like someone was holding my hand, but of course no one was there. And then the alarm went off. When I got out of bed, my body felt so heavy. It was a really weird experience, but maybe my dad was saying hello. Not sure. I told Mike about it, and he found it interesting because in both the dreams he had about my dad he was holding his hand.

    Dreams are such amazing things sometimes.

    I’m glad you got to feel your Dad with you again in some way :)
