Today is Mothers Day. I awoke to a terrible dream of my dad who passed away in February 2018. I have had dreams of him in the past, ever since he died. I am always hugging him and never want to let go. I awake  crying, realizing he is gone.  This morning I awoke crying, it was the strangest dream, he was in a nursing home. I was hugging him but instead of his face, He had a "snout" like a dogs, so weird? He could not talk to me..suddenly it dissappeared and we were talking again. I was waving across a long room to my mom and aunt Dot who were just looking at me?  Then I had to stop hugging my dad and had to leave. It seems in all my dreams I am holding onto my dad but then I have to let go and I wake up crying.  Today was especially disturbing, so much so that I am afraid to go to sleep because I will wake up crying and mourning him all over again.  Sigh, my mom says she has never even dreamed of my dad and they were married over 60 years!  I am under a great deal of stress being her caregiver and trying to fill the void left when my dad passed away.  Does anyone else have such dreams?  It's dreams like this, or that I am lost trying to find my way back home...what is wrong with me?

My daughter and I were just talking about reoccurring dreams yesterday...it seems they're there to help us realize we have something to work through whether it's a grief issue or another altogether.  I think Marty has hit the nail on the head!
