I Hugged Liz Last Night

22 Feb

I seldom dream it seems … if I do the memories are fleeting.

But last night I remembered.  It truly was a dream and not a visitation.  It was fragmented, it didn’t make alot of sense, but Liz was there.  All I remember is thinking I need to go back and check on our house to see if anyone was there.  There were dirty dishes sitting on every table as well as dirty clothes.  But then there she was.  As I push myself to try to remember all of the details I recall her hair as seeming short and very curly, but still sandy blonde.  She was wearing a pair of jean shorts and a summer top … it was a blue plaid.  She was not wearing glasses as she always has in past dreams or visits.

As soon as I saw her I ran up and hugged her and told her how much I loved her and how much I missed her — which is what I would choose to tell her … or I do choose to tell her … always.  It is always what is most important. 

My dream didn’t end abruptly as they usually seem to do – in fact I don’t remember much of anything else after that … but none of that matters to me.  What matters is that I got to hug my daughter last night and tell her how much I love her and miss her. 

It doesn’t get any better than that!

Make your day great!

    Kim, that was really beautiful. I suddenly began to cry as I read the last part of your entry.

    I have found that writing a personal and direct letter to our loved ones in spirit and then taping it to a wall is also kind of calming.

    For me, it’s kind of a just in case sort of thing. You know, just in case you can’t hear me talking to you right now or just incase you weren’t around to see what just happened in my life, I want to write and tell you about it.

    Great journal BTW!

    Dear Writerforthecurious,

    Thank you so much for your positive comments about my blog. One of the reasons I started it was so that I could share my experiences … I felt they could be meaningful and helpful to others. My blog also is my personal place to write directly to Liz and share my feelings and experiences with her.
