He comes to me in my dreams

Would you rather have a video copy of your dreams or a datebook that contains the events of every day of your life?
To make a choice here requires little effort. I would definetly prefer a video copy of my dreams.
How annoying is it to wake up in the morning and not be able to remember your pleasant dreams.
Of course, if I were having nightmares, I'd not need a video copy.

When I dream, I have very pleasant dreams usually.
I often dream of my son who left this earth almost ten years ago.
He comes to me in my dreams. Or at least it seems that way.
The dreams always resemble a reunion with him.
When I wake, I usually have a memory of these dream visits.
It's almost as a gift, to see and interact with him again in my dreams.
I keep a journal of these dreams so that I can review them and not forget them.

Then there are those dreams that are pleasant, but silly. I enjoy them in a relaxing, restful way.
Sometimes upon waking I want to recall them, and can remember fragments.
I put them away to review later, and then when I try to recall them, they're gone.
The refreshing feeling that I experienced in the dream are still there, but the actual events are gone.

I currently contain a datebook that contains most of the events of my life. But to have one from every day of my life would create the effect of looking back into the past.
I've concentrated the last half of my life so far trying to stop focusing on the past and the future, and just live in the present.

I definetly would prefer that copy of my dreams. They are actually an escape from the events of the day.


  1. There have been a few occasions that my parents who are long since dead have visited me in my dreams. Those particular dreams I would like to replay over and over. Most of the time I really don't dream at all so I opted for the date book so I could remember things better. Great post!!


    1. Yes, those dreams are like treasures aren't they! It is like an actual visit. My mother finally had one of my son, her grandson, and she called me up that morning and told me all about the dream. She described it as making her feel like she had really seen him.
      Thank you Kathy!

  2. I wait for my son to come to me in my dreams. It has been three months since he passed away. The memories of his long struggle with his illness are where I spend my time. Perhaps he is waiting for me to move towards the many pleasant memories I have of him before he visits.

    1. Oh Lynda, I so know that place in grief. At three months, I was still immersed in the thick fog. I was bascially performing the tasks of breathing and walking. Someone told me to just keep breathing, so I would concentrate on "breathe in, breathe out". I had to "walk thru" all the scenarios in my mind, of what had happened. I want to say it took about a year before I dreamed of him. My heart goes out to you.

  3. I can't imagine.... I have two boys. I just can't imagine. I am glad he comes to you in your dreams. I am thinking I should start a dream journal. I always wake up thinking about what I dreampt and then quickly forget. Sometimes I'm sure it means something important but can't figure out what it is. One time I kept dreaming about getting stuck in the mud and not being able to go any further and I realized I really did feel that way in my job. I changed jobs and never dreampt about that again.

    I really like your blog. You have a nice writing style. I also like that you use the prompts like I do and it's nice to compare. I think I'll have to follow you :O)

    This is Donna at but for some reason I have a hard time posting on blogger blogs with word verification. I did it on one post but now the verification thing just blips away quickly and disappears before I can't use it. Anyway, I haven't changed personalities.

  4. Donna, I'm having trouble replying to this comment. Maybe realted to your verification issues? I replied this morning, and it disappeared!
    Thank you so much for your comments! I'd love for you to follow me! It is nice to compare.
    I know you are having a blast raising two boys! I know I did, and now I have three gradnsons! Love the boys! Yes, I lived every parents nightmare. But God carried me through it, not that I wouldn't do anything to get him back, but there are gifts in everything.
    The dream journal for me is another little treasure, because I can record those dreams, like memories of him, and then go back and review later. I wonder if I didn't write the dreams of him down, if I would forget them? That's awesome about your job dream! I've had some similarly interesting dreams.
    I'm going to your blog next to check it out! I wanted to reply to you first. Do I have control of the verification issues? I'm not very knowledgeable about all the technology!
