I had the most lovely dream last night. I was sitting in a cosy room chatting and laughing with my father.
I knew, in the dream, that my father had passed away.
I slowly walked towards him.........he opened his arms and gave me a hug.
At this point I woke up. Tears rolled gently from my eyes.
Tears of joy...........to spend time with my father, if only in a dream, was beautiful.
May you all have beautiful dreams...........have a great weekend.
What a beautiful and dream, I have tears in my eyes reading your post.
I love your soft and gentle flowers, they are stunning and your photograph skills are wonderful.
Enjoy your weekend also.
Thank you Irene for your kind words..........Delete
Oh Cheryl, you obviously had such a special bond with your father to have such lovely dreams. I had a similar dream earlier this week about my sister. In that dream I knew she was dead too but she was asking me if I missed her. The memories of our special ones keep them alive in our hearts. What beautiful photos in this post, I do love that last one especially.ReplyDelete
A very special bond with Dad Jo.Delete
You are so right Jo, it does bring those that have left us close. I have never experienced such a dream.....it was incredibly beautiful. Reading your comment I know you will fully understand what I mean..........
I went all goosebumpy reading that. You must have quite a bond, you two. Lovely photos too by the way.ReplyDelete
Glad you like the images :)Delete
It is so wonderful to dream about lost loved ones. Beautiful and moving narrative with your lovely photographs.ReplyDelete
how lovely to dream of your father like that - it must feel like a solace as I know you still miss him. I too often dream about my parents, not quite like having them here, but the next best thing.
Beautiful flower shots, nice to see you have plants that are still going strong. I have emptied all my summer containers now and replanted them with the usual spring bulbs with pansies atop. Not quite as colourful I have to say but come early spring they should provide a pretty enough display.
My containers are still going strong Elaine. Havn't quite found the courage to empty them yet :)Delete
A lovely dream. I have dreamed very occasionally of my mum but I rarely remember my dreams other than a fleeting knowledge as I'm waking that I have dreamed something.ReplyDelete
Dreams are a source of fascination............Delete
So nice you had such a lovely dream of your father and also nice you still remember it. I mostly don´t remember my dreams when I awaken in the morning. Your flower pictures are gorgeous and for the first picture this applies: "Take time to smell the flowers".ReplyDelete
Have a nice weekend!
Absolutely Janneke.....I do take time to smell this flower every day :)Delete
What a lovely dream to have Cheryl ... the thing with dreams, you never know when you are going to have them ... let alone have one like the one you have just experienced.ReplyDelete
I can understand you waking in tears, but what a happy dream to be able to hug your father ... precious.
Your photo's you've used here are perfect too.
May you have a peaceful and relaxing weekend... although I know there is always things that need doing... take time to have a cuppa ...
All the best Jan
Yes Jan it was a wonderful dream......ReplyDelete
I have my children and Grandchildren visiting today............lunch together.
Tomorrow a ride in the countryside and a pub lunch. Suits me fine.
Sounds a lovely weekend ... and the weather has been good I hope.Delete
All the best Jan
You are so blessed to have had a Father that supports you even now.ReplyDelete
It sounds like you have a wonderful weekend ahead. Enjoy, relax...
I had never thought of it like that Lisa.......it was a lovely dream and one that will stay with me for a long time.Delete
Thank you.....have a great weekend yourself :))
How lovely he came to visit you in your dream.ReplyDelete
That is exactly how I feel Marlene................Delete
Oh gosh! Now that sounds far bigger than a dream to me, and life is filled with tales of the unexpected, I often dream true, those dreams always stand out, they are always more vivid and seem utterly real.ReplyDelete
Maybe your dad really connected with you...us humans don't know everything!!! How lovely! How comforting!
What beautiful pics! Especially the last one, Chinese lantern? xxx
We are connected snowbird. Death is a mystery. I had been worrying about my Mother this week. I believe my Father came to comfort me.....to let me know he is there for me.ReplyDelete
I could be wrong but the dream helped, and that was a good thing :)
Yes Chinese lantern..........love them.
This is so ironic, Cheryl, because I had a dream last night, too, of visiting my parents' house and both my parents were there, not just my dad. In my case, though, as I think about it, the reason I dreamed it was because I have been helping Dad somewhat and making plans to get rid of or organize a lot of the clutter that has accumulated there. In my dream the house was orderly and the way I remembered it as a child. I'm glad you were able to connect with your father in your dream, and I hope the situation with your Mother improves. Such lovely images of your garden!ReplyDelete
Thank you rose, for such an interesting comment. How very strange we had similar dreams.Delete
Hope you are finding your way and that your Mother is improving.
I have had similar dreams about my parents too, Cheryl, and have always woken up feeling so comforted.ReplyDelete
I also start jobs and then get distracted ... I can often pop out to the recycling bin and still be out there an hour later as I start weeding or pruning or deadheading!
Beautiful images. And dreams can be so vivid + real.ReplyDelete
