Last night I had a dream that I found Anna. She was missing and I found her.
I remember thinking I needed to call her dad and tell him, he was very worried about her too. I was afraid though that when I called he would want to take her for the weekend – one of the heartaches of a two house family is that there is always someone that is missing. This was something that always concerned Anna before she went to Heaven.
In my dream I held her tight promising I would never let go of her. She buried her head in my neck.
Then I woke up.
I cherish these encounters we have in the middle of the night. They seem to be more frequent lately ~ about once a week. I think Anna knows my heart is hurting. Sometimes she sends her sister to visit which I love because I miss Abigail so much.
Their visits make the distance between here and Heaven seem less.
