A Dream From A Moment In Time

If I had a genie lamp and could have one wish, it would be to have the ability to go back in time to spend a day with my children when they were preschoolers.  I loved listening to their version of life.  I loved their curiosity at that age.  I would love to have at least one more snuggle. My wish came true in July.  I had a Visitation Dream from Will.   In this dream he was five years old. I will try to set the stage for you.  In the dream the year was 1992.  My present day self was sitting in the backseat on the driver’s side of the 1987 silver Cutlass Supreme that we owned at the time.  On my right was Hunt at the age of  two years old.  He was sitting in his Fisher-Price car seat.  As I looked into the front seat, my view was of  me, age 33, in the driver’s seat.  Will,  five years old, was sitting in the front passenger seat.

This year, we planned a trip to the beach over the Fourth of July holiday week.  The plan was for our two married sons and their wives to meet us in Florida.  My husband, daughter, and I traveled together.  As my husband and I planned this trip, we knew that...

Happy Birthday Will!

Will’s birthday is August 12th. It is through reading, meditation, wonderful mentors and parents who have experienced child loss that I have found peace since his passing.  Naturally there are times of melancholy but those times are fewer and further apart. I feel a spiritual closeness with Will that helps me know that his spirit is still with me.  My acceptance has come from viewing Heaven as a place where my oldest son lives.  He left all of his belongings here because all that he needs is being provided for him there.  Through him I have realized that Heaven is a place, not The End.  He is every bit as alive there as he was here.  In fact, I believe that he is not only alive, but that he is living the life that God intended for every man and woman at creation. John 6:47   Truly, I tell all of you emphatically, the one who believes in me has eternal life.   (International...
