My Grandfather died 23 years ago this month, and last night was the very first time he has ever made an appearance in my dreams.
This is me and Grandpa in March of '78... was barely a year and a half old, but I knew I wanted that present he was opening... it was his birthday...
My Grandfather was a very dear man. He died when I was only 12 years old, a 7th grader in Junior High who could have used many more years with him in my life.
For some reason, I like psychic stuff. I used to watch John Edward and James Van Praagh, they just amazed me. When I was pregnant this past year and couldn't sleep in the middle of the night, I started watching The Ghost Whisperer and got hooked.
I've always left myself open for "possibilities"... you just never know... My mom always thought it was hooey. I would say something about why Grandpa wouldn't at least visit my dreams, and she would say something about how he never believed in that kind of stuff so I would be waiting a long time for that to happen. He was big on tangible stuff, stuff you can touch.
So, when I woke up from this dream this morning, in awe that the baby slept through the night, I got a huge smile on my face! It took 23 years, but he finally made an appearance in my dreams! He looked like he did back in the mid-80's and he was dressed in uniform from the picture I hold most vivid in my memory. We didn't actually talk, it was weird. We were part of a "Soap Opera" and someone was trying to change the DNA of a dead person, so he used a juice box to mix new DNA... I'm very into Forensics and love all those Forensic shows like CSI, but I never thought about juice boxes and mixing DNA like Kool-aid...
Just because my Grandfather never believed in the after-life or dead people coming to you in dreams, to me, it's a miracle that he finally made himself appear to me after all these years! I believe my positive attitude of always wanting to make a connection with him finally paid off. This is one of my Fall Season of Miracles... and I hope he actually talks with me the next time he makes an appearance!
