Hard not having him around anymore, but very grateful for all the time we did have.
I have had three very vivid dreams about Dad since he died. As soon as I woke up, I jotted them down. Maybe I should consult Carl Jung or Sigmund Freud for answers? But I'm guessing they're with Dad?!?!?
In the first one, I spoke out loud, which is not uncommon for me when I have a vivid dream, especially unpleasant ones. In this case, dream one was a very good one.
- As Kade was waking up to go to the bathroom, I sat up in bed, in a half-awake daze, and said, both happily and in shock, "The parade is coming through, and Dad is in it! Be careful not to get in its way!"
- I was in a crowded restaurant. I was at table with some people, and I was singing the chorus to A-Ha's song, Take On Me. As I was singing, I panned the room and saw Dad and Regina sitting at a table. Dad was smiling and laughing hard. I heard him say to Regina, "I know that voice! That's Allen's voice."
- I was driving around Headland and spotted Dad at a busy intersection. His vehicle had broken down, and he was simply sitting behind the wheel looking helpless. I looked over and he smiled, and then motioned for me to stop. I pulled over to help.
