Hey Josie,

I know I may have a different belief system to many but I also believe that our loved ones do visit us in our dreams and often in meditation.

aw, that was my poem :-) glad you liked it. my dad died a week+ ago. Someone told me (& i have NO idea if i beleve it or not) that crows carry souls of those who just died & the spirits of loved waiting for a person close to death. I didn't pay it much attention, actually, i thought it sounded hooky. but the morning i was getting ready for the funeral, there was a black crow perched in a tree staring into my window - i stopped & stared back. being the cynic i am, i figured that crow is probably out there every day, i just never noticed it before.... i've looked every day since & it hasn't re-appeared, so who knows???

i also believe the people we love come back to us in dreams. my nana died 10 years ago, i dreamed of her once, during a particulary rough spell -- it didn't seem like a dream, it just sounded like she was talking to me, all she said was, "everything is going to be ok" & that was it. never dreamed of her again.

Nothing is strange when it comes to the ways we believe our loved ones come to comfort us. Nothing will ever convince me otherwise. I know Luke comes to me in meditations, I speak with him, it's very comforting. As for the crow you saw, as you say, who knows. If it brings comfort it is a blessing.

Love

Promise

I really believe in the power of dreams connecting us to the people who have departed. One of my cousins had her baby in a hospital very near where I live. On the morning her son was born, my grandmother came to me and said 'everything is ok, I just brought M to R' (she used their names). And i looked at my clock, and later I found out that it was just 10 minutes after he was born...and she told me his name before anyone else...the morning after my mother died, a similar thing happened in that my mother was with me, and she said some things to me that were exactly what she would say. And last week, my brother was going to do something very challenging, and again my grandmother came and told me she would be with him through the whole thing...which was so comforting. This has not happened often, and I dream of them other times when it is just a dream or memory, but these times were different...I am glad your dreams comfort you. I also think you need to think about finding a way to let others include you in holidays. I have never married, although I do have family. I know what it is like to feel like you are the only one on the Ark without a mate. But I also know that I have made myself into the image of the glamorous aunt...the one with sparkly clothes, who brings fun presents, who will read to the children. At our family gatherings, the women usually end up in the kitchen talking and the men watch sports...I love sports, so I am not always in the 'right' room. But it isn't like the couples are sitting holding hands...what I am saying is that you have choices - maybe not the choices that you want, but you don't have to stay home alone. Perhaps some of the summer holidays will give you a chance to 'practice' spending time with your freind's family. You might find that after a few times, you begin to feel like a small part of their celebration. You might find that you don't. But you can be proud of yourself for trying. Best wishes SJ
