A Different Dream

I've mentioned a few times that I don't dream usually. For me it's most often conversations.

Well, last night was a trip and since it's a first for me I wanted to get it out before I forget anything.

It took place here in Paradise. I had a big, beautiful dining room table and it was set to the max. I was in the kitchen cooking like crazy, but heard all this conversation buzzing through out the house.

I remember I was smiling. I was sooo happy.

The next thing I remember is sitting at the table. It was like a camera was panning, showing every face that was there. Daddy, my Grandma, my Aunt - all gone. Then there were the faces of those I care so much for but don't get to see very often.

There were stories being shared, I soooo wish I could remember what was said - I just remember laughing. A lot.

And, this is the weird part for my dreams, they all left. They didn't disappear, I didn't just wake up. They each hugged me good bye, and walked out the door.

I woke up with tears.

But ohhhhh it was wonderful while it lasted.......

What a bittersweet dream...! And a goodbye...

Eat anything special? Cook anything special?

That's the weird part. I don't remember anything about the food.

Normally I'm all ABOUT the food. I cook to show my affection, and for something like that, I'd pull out all the stops.

But with this, all I remember are the smiles, the faces, the laughter.

VERY UnTammiLike.

I have similar dreams like that all the time, they always make me depressed the next day because those dreams are all life like.

You were given a great gift. Your family, your Daddy, Grandmother and Aunt all wanted you to know that they were there and how much they still love you.

To hug and say good-bye versus just leaving is such a wonderful gift to have received.

Not that it was ever in doubt, but you are loved beyond all boundaries!
