It's ironic that todays post is my wondering if what my mom shared with me actually happened, or if she dreamt it or perhaps imagined it. It doesn't really matter because to her it was real.
I wanted to share about a dream that I woke up with Sunday morning that had upset me greatly. My dream went like this : My mom and dad(he passed away in 1995) were going to a formal and my mom needed to wear a gown. While I spoke to my mom on the telephone my mom shared that she didn't even know what a gown was. I told my mom not to worry that I would help her get dressed .
My mom then said to me "I know who you are I just don't remember your face". I then awoke and wrote my dream down so I would not forget it, and a little while later I shared it with my husband, and started to cry. I felt a sadness and heaviness with my heart feeling quite heavy. It was only a dream yet perhaps one day this could be reality. My mom does have Alzheimer's and although I live each and every day in a lighter "space" somewhere in the distance I know this can all change.
