I love dreams where hubby appears.
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.
