dream

Last night I had a dream that I was sitting and talking to Eddie. He was across from me. Maybe we were sitting at a table. I mentioned his kids. He looked up and had tears in his eyes. I said, "I know you miss them." He nodded. Then I asked him if I could look for a different place to live for him. (I had wanted him to move out of the complex he lived in since the apartments were in disrepair). The next thing in the dream is that I looked up and he was on the other side of a white picket fence going up some stairs into a house. He turned around and waved to me.
That was the end of the dream. I don't know what it means but I'm sad, but happy I at least got to "see" him. I will try and remember what Colleen, Jeff's mom says that these are visits, not keeps.
Thank you, God for the visit. I love you, Eddie

Perhaps the other side of the white picket fence was life beyond this one? Wanting you to know that he did find \"another place to live.\" I understand the bittersweet feelings that we can have around these and had not seen where Colleen mentioned that these are \"visits, not keeps.\" I\'ll be remembering that for sure. Eddie missing his children and his life as it was, absolutely... sending you all kinds of loving comfort as you wrap your arms around his visit and perhaps more will trickle in throughout the day and if not I think this dream is very symbolic in many, many ways. With love, Joanie

I\'m happy for you that you had your dream (visit) from Eddie. I had one from my daughter many years ago and still find comfort in knowing that she is there for me (I just don\'t know where or when she will again come to me in a dream). Hoping for another visit as I am sure you are also. Glad you made it through Thanksgiving as I know how hard the holidays can be. Take care of yourself. Truly your friend, BarbaraWawa

LInda, I\'m so glad you had a visit from Eddie, and I know how precious those moments were. Of course, there\'s sadness when \"reality\" is back. But what a gift it was. This is a hard time of year and we need the memories of our sons to see us through. With love, Linda J

It is wonderful to have a dream of your son. I didn\'t have any for the longest time but a few weeks ago I had dreams of Cory several nights in a row. He was a toddler, a youngster and the adult in the course of nights. Just wish you could sleep for hours and hours.

I haven\'t dreamed of Lisa. Joe (my husband) had one dream. They were sitting at a train station. He woke up weeping. I agree with Linda. It is wonderful to see them again but it is bittersweet.
Hugs,

Dear Linda,
The picket fence feels to me like a place of peace and stability... it\'s almost a classical phrase, \"Little house with a white picket fence\" as a place where we make a family. I can only imagine how important it is for his memory to be part of his childrens\' lives...
I would love to have a dream visit from Andy but so far it has not been what my mind provided to me... I\'m ok with that. When it happens I can tell already it will be bittersweet as yours was. Oh thank heavens we have each other!

Those dreams are so powerful...comforting and yet can make that feeling of absence even greater. But I would guess that you will \"take it\" just to see him. That is what I have found. It sounds to me like Eddie was trying to reassure mom that he has \"a differnt place to live\" and that it is beautiful...sounds like \"home\" with a that picket fence. Hugging you today friend...Karen

Oh Linda, just the white house with the picket fence is a beautiful sign that Eddie\'s new home is the perfect place. That was a nice \'visit\". Hugs, Kim

Dear Linda, as hard as it is to awake to reality, I have found that the few dreams I have had of Mitch makes me feel as though I truly was with him, and although it makes me sad and makes me miss him even more I am so thankful to as you said see them again. I know it is hard but I am glad you had that time with your sweet Eddie. Maybe you can have a restful nights sleep tonight, Love, Charlene

I\'m happy that you had a visit from Eddie. I had one a LONG time ago. I was just reflecting upon the (very few) signs and visit and realized that I\'ve always been with one or both daughters, and in the dream they were there. Not sure what that means.
Stay as positive as you seem to be. Love, prayers, and hugs, Sharon

What a wonderful gift to have Eddie visit you. I agree with the other Moms who think the white picket fence is a beautiful symbol of security, coziness, contentment and a heart and home at peace. Corrie has visited many of her friends, as well as her two sisters and myself ~ though only once to me very early on. The dreams seem to be mixed, as yours of sweet Eddie was ~ she reassures us that she is okay, she giggles with her friends, sometimes I feel that she is sad and misses us, but mostly it\'s clear that she is happily doing what she loves to do ~ helping others and sharing joy. Eddie was smiling as he waved \"au revoir\" (till we meet again) ~ never \"goodbye\".

Sending love and hopeful hugs your way ~ Debbie
