The night I wrote the last post about scattering Mum's ashes Raels woke up during the night with the bed shaking and thought it was Ramsey, our Spoodle, scratching himself. When she looked, Mum was sitting on the end of the bed shaking my leg and she said “Laurie, why do those girls have to make such a fuss of everything. They should have just thrown me in the river so we could get on with things.” That was when she woke me up and told me :)
Funny that I'd written to Mum in the post that I had a visit from Dad after he died but that was at a time when I was living alone, not with someone who is attuned to these things. Oddly enough when I told my sisters one of them had a dream about Mum that very night. She said -
"Mum finally came to me in a dream as vivid as the one I had when Dad visited me and I woke up straight away wishing she had stayed longer. I was in my car with Shez driving and there was Mum's old little white car driving in front - I said to Shez "That looks like Nanna" and with that she turned around, and it was her with the most amazing smile that lit up her entire face - I yelled out "Mum" and then I woke up. I now really do know that she is so happy, she has free movement ,is driving and obviously pain free."
I am a natural sceptic and there was a time when I would have scoffed at these things, but now they seem to me to be more than dreams. Has anyone else shared similar experiences?
