My Special Mom Memory

Sunday, May 13, 2012

As a few know, my mom passed away when I was 8 years old from cancer. She was the greatest & although I only had her for a short time, I will cherish her forever.

I am quite the dreamer. In fact, I probably have more than one dream every night. For many, many years I never once dreamed about my mom. I would dream about others who had passed away, not her. It had made me a bit sad because I thought that was the one place I could still have her.

Six years ago I got married. Three weeks before my wedding day, my mom finally visited me in a dream. She stepped out of an SUV, I walked up to her, she put her arms around me & smoothed down the back of my hair. All I said was "I missed you mommy". And she said "I know, I missed you too". I can still feel her hand on the back of my head & her embrace.

It was the best wedding present that I received.

    That's a beautiful dream, Joss!!! Although I don't really believe it is a dream. I was at a very low point in my life after my mom died. My younger brother died 9 months later. Life wasn't going well for me. One night I woke up in the middle of the night crying and saying that I didn't think I could go on. That's when I heard my brother's voice. He told me that I can go on. Hearing his voice tell me that was all that I needed to get back with living. I still have struggles, but I remember Joel telling me that I can go on. I would love to have a visit from my mom or dad, but it hasn't happened yet. Although, maybe it has happened. I have been awakened many times feeling a hand on my shoulder or my name being called. I've never felt afraid. I've only felt comforted.

    Thank you for sharing your wonderful story! Keep that close to your heart!
