Departed Loved One Visits In Dream

Perhaps it was because I saw somebody who reminded me of her yesterday, or perhaps it was that it was at this time of the year several years ago that I began my search for her. Or maybe it's a combination of both.

Katherine and I became very good friends one Super Bowl Sunday when we were at the same party. We discovered we were both in the early stages of pregnancy and that we were due around the same time. From that moment on, we became great friends.

Through laughter and through tears and throughout many years, we shared secrets, we laughed, and we comforted each other through our divorces. We got together about three or four times a year, and I always called her or she called me several times throughout the year – especially at Christmas.

I know I started calling her about this time in 2006 to wish her a Merry Christmas and to see how she and her kids (now grown) were doing. For two months I kept getting messages that her voicemail was full.

Not until I found her son online the following February did I discover how ill she was and that she had died that following January.

Yesterday I saw a woman who reminded me of Katherine, the friend I have been missing for nearly four years. Last night I dreamed we were together again, and when it came time to say goodbye, I wrapped my arms around her in a tight hug, wiping tears that streamed down my face, telling her through sobs how much I missed her.

I'd like to think that on some level, our spirits connected last night in a dream.
