Last night I had a very vivid and strange dream. Without boring you with all the details I wanted to write down and remember one special part of the dream. In the dream, there was a part that I was frantic and running. Then out of nowhere my grandma appears walking towards me and she was very calm. It startled me and I couldn't figure if she was real or not. In my dream, I knew she had already passed, and that's why I was confused. I called out to her to help me. She put out her hand for me to take it. I hesitated wondering if I reached out for it if she would disappear. I got closer and took her hand. It was real and it was warm. My hand fit with hers. She guided me to the place I was frantically trying to run to and she still kept calm.
(In the dream, I had my purse stolen and I was desperately trying to chase after the person to get it back.)
She told me that my purse was not there and that everything would be alright. And then, all of a sudden, she was gone.
The basis of the dream was a bit strange, like I said, and I didn't think it was necessary to tell you the whole story....But why would my grandma show up in a crazy dream like that? Maybe she was sending me a message? There is a lot going on in my life right now and maybe it was her way of telling me to keep calm. Who knows.
Dreams are amazing and scary and confusing.
I am just glad that for just a few short seconds I felt like my grandma was really there and so alive right beside me...my hand in hers.
