Thank you, jennie, for being so supportive. I very much appreciate your posts!
Hope you had a lovely holiday. May your New Year and throughout 2013 be blessed.
Funny that I wrote about holiday dreams and the deceased because my deceased father did appear to me in several pre-Christmas dreams. He didn't say a whole lot. I just recalled seeing him.
However, as I was cleaning out my mother's room this past weekend, I felt his spirit watching over me. He said, "Yes! Throw out all that junk!" He used to get so frustrated with her because she was not a tidy person. LOL.
Our loved ones stay nearby in dreams and in waking life. Isn't that comforting?
