I dreamed of my friend Sara last night.
She’s been gone for over a year and a half and I think of her all the time, but I haven’t dreamed about her since right after she left.
I never met Sara face to face, we were online friends. She impacted my life in so many ways and that’s what I was rushing to tell her in my dream.
I hugged her and held her hands, afraid she’d disappear. I wanted her to understand how much she had changed my life. How much I love her. How very much she is missed.
I woke with a start, immediately feeling the loss all over again.
“Tell her Father…tell her all those things I wish I’d said…”
There in the dark, in the middle of the night I thought He whispered back:
She knows child. Going forward do what you can not to leave things unsaid…
I drifted back to sleep making a mental list of things I want to say to those I love.
You, dear ones, are on that list.
You, my online friends who encourage me, so many of you taking time to touch base and share a bit of your story with me. So many of you who share prayer needs with me and in turn you say a prayer for me.
You give me connection. I know for many of you that makes no sense, but for this introvert, trust me, I count my connection with you as one of my most precious gifts.
-Thank you my sweet friends-sending you love~
