I Danced With My Dad Last Night
Last night, I danced with Dad. It was a short dance, and I'm not entirely sure I remember the tune. It was a lovely dance, where I did not attempt to lead (bad habit I have) and Dad took me in his arms and lead me around the dance floor as if we'd been partners in Dancing with the Stars all season. When we were done, he asked me if I liked to dance to songs like the one that played. I told him I did. Afterward, we sat on a couch and he asked if I would make a "cover for a wedding dress" for Sue. Not sure who he was referring to, but I figured I'd find out if I just let him talk. Unfortunately, that didn't happen. I woke up.
My Dad passed away in 1975. But every once in a while, I get a visit in my dreams. This was the first time we've danced during his dream visits. I woke up feeling refreshed, a bit melancholy, but at peace. Ah...there's that serenity I was looking for!!
Do you ever have vivid dreams about someone who's passed? Do you ever wonder whether it's a spirit visit to tell you all's well or whether it's a need that you have to talk to that person that brings them to your dreams? I can say that visits from my Dad almost always leave me feeling calmer about my world. So I choose to think that my guardian angel realizes my need for reassurance and shows up just when I need him. What could be better than that?!?
I'm thinking I'm going to have a great day today. I'm going to get a lot done. Now if I can just figure out why I woke up with "United We Stand" by Brotherhood of Man playing in my head!!!
