dream a little dream of me...

I have dreams all the time at night and most of the time I can easily recall them the next day, I have never been more thankful for this than this morning when I was able to recall a vivid dream I had involving my mother last night. Apparently I have watched too many soap operas growing up where a character dying means nothing and they can easily return in a day or two with some crazy explanation of why they are still alive...cause my mom was still alive. My whole family was having a great adventure driving around the streets of some unknown city bickering, laughing, and causing trouble....and it felt so real. My mom was back where she should be, with us, and it made me feel protected and normal.

Then I woke up. I was comforted at first thinking that maybe it wasn't just a dream, but when reality and my common sense finally set in I realized that the nightmare I was living right now was real, and that kind of sucked. But that dream has flashed in my mind all day and has given me some comfort so for that I am thankful.

I've had those dreams. They're not fun. But the way I look at it is...at least we have our dreams!

I've been thinking about you a lot lately. Friday night I couldn't fall asleep because of all my thoughts. I laid there feeling so bad that you will miss out on your Mom being around to help you with your baby. That was such a hard time for me and it helped to have my Mom around. I know you'll be blessed with having Kim and all your family and friends around to help you. I'm so worried about you just because I know what you're going through. Just know, the sadness doesn't completely go away, but it does get better and easier to go on with life.

You're such a wonderful person and I love you. You are loved by many who can help you through this difficult time. Don't be afraid to cling to them!!

Angie, those dreams are so important. I believe our loved ones can give us comfort in our dreams. I'm glad you were open and could remember it. How wonderful. Love you.

I've been trying to dream about Mom for the past 2 nights now. One night I'm a bartender and the other night I'm being chased by midgets.

Needless to say I'm jealous. Maybe third time's the charm.

Love you.

Love Jared's comment and that with his humor, the laughter will help heal. He gets me every time but really you already know that. You're in my prayers. Hugs.

You made me teary when I read about you waking up and your sweet dream was over. I'm glad it brought you some comfort during the day though! By the way this is Kristie, Karla Wedig's daughter. We were alll so sad to hear the news about your wonderful mother. I found your blog by googling her name. Drop by my blog and we can chat some time! You are in my thoughts and prayers!

What a great little outlet into a warm and peaceful place of comfort. Not sure if anyone mentioned it to you before but during pregnancy dreams can appear more real, vivid and frequent. Enjoy!

K i'm confused by Jared's dream about being chased by midgets. Ha! so random but it made me laugh. I think it is sweet that you have had this dream, and very special. We love you and hope you know it.-N and R
