What a wonderful dream!! I would love to hear from my mother.
I had a meaningful dream before the passing of my grandmother. I had a dream that my grandmother was in a hospital bed and she was hovering over her body and she fought to stay alive for us but in the end god grabbed her hand and she knew it was time. She hugged all over us and then god lead her to heaven to watch over us. I was so disturbed by the dream at the time that I couldn't sleep and woke up and wrote a poem called "How my angel got her wings". I gave it to her the next morning. Three weeks later she passed away in a hospital bed with all of her family around her. We all felt like she was there. I know she was watching over us. Funny thing is that she wasn't even sick. It was all of a sudden. I beleive that god knew how much of a fighter she was and had to take her when she wasn't fighting. She was 86 and lived a long life and everyone who knew her loved her. She passed on October 30th, 2009. Her favorite holiday was Halloween, so we still passed out the candy she bought for the kids. Always the big sized ones. she always got mad when people gave one small piece of candy. LOL. I have had a really hard time coping with her death because she has always been like a mother to me. Then today I came across a piece of paper while looking for a number. It was the poem I wrote I had forgotten all about it. It brought me to tears and It made me feel like she placed it there for me to find and to comfort me. I love you too gramma. When I get a chance I will share the poem with you so that you know it was from her. thanks so much all for listening.
My favortive movie is "Outlaw Josie Wales" myself and my girl of 19 years watched it many times. The last time was a week before she passed. The part where he buries his family and uses wooden crosses always touched me, I used to joke with my girl and tell her if she went before me I was going to put one at her grave instead of buying a stone.

She told me "you son of b*#% you would do that to me!" I always told her, relax I'm kidding. Well....a week exactly to the day she passed I had a very upsetting dream.

I was with my best friend in the dream, (whom drove me to purchase the plots 2 years ago when she was 1st diagnoised with cancer, and they gave her just 6 months to live) in the dream I couldn't find her grave site or her. I screamed at him to dig in the cemetery with me till I found her I was digging like a mad man and I couldn't find her. I woke up in tears.

I went to the cemetery the next day, (yesterday) sure enough there was a wooden cross there on our site with something written on it I couldn't understand.

I thought maybe it was latin and they did that till the stone was placed. I knew I had to remove the wooden cross and I did. I called the cemetery office today and explained what I had done and the dream.

The woman apologized and explained her son who is the caretaker had made a mistake, and placed the cross there at the wishes of the family who owns the plot next to ours ,they are spanish. That explains what I thought was written in latin. They asked him to do so till thier family gets a stone.

If they cannot afford to get a stone, I am going to offer to buy them one, with thier permission. Not that I am rich by any means but I think my girl wants me to do so. She was so generous her whole life and helped many, many people.

Turns out the woman who is running the cemetery now husband passed away 2 months ago. He was the genteleman whom I purchased the plot from for the both of us.

Myself and the woman who runs the cemetery talked for quite a while about how we handle our grief. I am thrilled to know that through this dream there is life after death, although I always believed that before. This just confirmed what I had always knew.

When I was done with the phone conversation with the woman who runs the cemetery and promised to say a prayer for her husband, I told my girl. "Next time you have something to tell me, please do it in a more gentle way then that crazy dream!". It's only been 9 days since she has passed, and I miss her so much. I want her to know how much I love her and I know she does.

After Having 2 Children I had been in contact w/ my birth mother. Had been talking on phone & making plans to meet face to face. Unfortunately we had a falling out/difference of opinion. I believe she was back on heavy drugs the last time we spoke, she was really mean, and "disowned" me as one of her children, just like when she abandoned my 2 sisters and I when we were all under the age of 1and a half yrs. old. (I have a twin). The next call I got a few days later was from my maternal birth grandmother telling me i didn't need to worry about "her" anymore she was dead and hung up on me. I felt horrible about that last phone call, not because of anything I had said but there had been no closure. About 2 weeks later I had a dream...My husband and I were preparing to pick her up at the airport and I was so excited. He went and got her alone, she walked through my door and ran to me. I remember feeling that embrace like it was real and she was with me. I could even smell her shampoo so vividly, but then I went to pull away to look at her, and said "it can't be you-you're dead" and all she said to me was "I Love You" and just faded into thin air, I could still smell her and feel her arms around me. After some therapy I finally talked to someone and they told me it was her way of letting me know it was okey, and we were able to say goodbye. That dream still brings me to tears, but I also feel at peace with her now and don't have to feel guilty or angry with her anymore.

My boyfriend passed away December 8th, 2009. He was my soulmate. WITHOUT A DOUBT. We were 1 year and 10 days apart and the best of friends. We had been together since I was 15 and had everything in common. I definately thought we would get married and have kids and eventually move to the beach in california like we always dreamed. We were about to start college next semester and everything was goin grreat. He died suddenly of an overdose and it was so heartbreaking all the what-if's raced through my mind. They still do but its gotton ever so easier since my dream. I begged and cried every night for god to send him to me in my dream and he hadn't came yet.. I was starting to get upset and irritated wondering if he had truely crossed over or what not. FINALLY HE CAME this past sunday. I fell asleep normally, crying deeply. Once again i begged god and him to just come to me in my dream. When I woke up it was back to life but the dream was still ever so vivid. We were hanging out in some room.. the walls were undefined and it was like he just appeared. I was in total shock like OMG IS THAT YOU?? He smiled and said yea babe whats up? I was like overwhelmed and crying deeply while he just looked at me calm as could be with a look on his face like "what the heck you so upset about" I told him how much i missed him and what not and he just seemed so calm and content it was wierd!!! I asked him if he met god and if he was cool... he was reluctant for a minute and then simply answered "yea" I felt wierd like "that's it?" but i didnt say anything else. I was just so happy to finally see him again... He kept signaling to me that he was completely fine and I needed to stop crying. (I guess it was his way of letting me know not to worry he is perfectly fine.. probably doesnt even wanna be in earth anymore) I was like will you wait for me in heaven and he said "i dunno". This is the strange part. I was like what do you mean you dont know.. he said "ali baby im on earth" I was like why arent you in heaven.. and he was like aggrivated with me for asking so many questions... " he said because i wanna be here with you, i asked god to send me down here to be with you" I asked when he was going back to heaven and he said I dunno. He also commented about an on going problem in my life and it was so wierd that how i know this dream was REAL! no one else in the world would be able to address the problem except someone up above. I acted like i didnt know what he was talking about and he wasnt even mad he was just like you need to start taking care of yourself better and stand up for yourself. I now know he iis watching my every move and listening to my every sound. I just prayed that we meet again in heaven but i got the feeling that there are way to many people up there to just reunite. it definatley worries me but knowing what he is doing made it so much easier for me to cope with. I know that was him!! He looked exactly the same except so calm and content. DEFINATELY PAIN FREE ! ... if your loved one hasnt came to you yet in your dream THEY WILL. you have to give it time... and pray to god, it's definately a gift from him.
God answers prayers , I have been praying to have a dream about my son , and last night I had not one but two different dreams . One was where when we saw each other we starting crying and said how much we missed and loved each other. He told me he couldn't stay for long and I told him I knew . The other I was in my room and he was sitting on my bed and I sit next to him and held his hands and asked him if he was aright and he told me he was . In both dreams he looked very handsome and strong
Hi, i have asked God many times to let me have a dream of my son? I would that i could, you are blessed. I know that my son Jared who was killed aug 4, 2009 along with his friend alex was saved and i desire to hold and to talk with him so very much. I can just say that you are blessed. I have had visits from butterflies when i have been down, laugh when i think of some of the things we use to do. But my heart longs to see him just one more time and to talk to him just for a moment. I was angry when he went to my mother, but now i am just very hurt and in so much pain sometimes i can't stand it. I sorry i am rambling. I happy that you were blessed in that way. How have you been doing? otherwise?
