I’m awake this early on my day off because I had a dream about my dad. It felt so real that I woke up almost thinking I could call him. When I fully awoke, I realize that he’s been dead for 8 years. Most of the time when I have those types of dreams, I sit for a minute and smile. I like to think that when I dream about him it’s because he’s actually with me there in spirit. This morning though, I bawled like a baby in bed with Mr. Tattoo trying to calm me.
IN my dream we were walking down this dirt path. *we were at the wedding venue* and we were both dressed up for a wedding. We were walking arm and arm and he was telling me how proud he was of me and how happy he was Mr. Tattoo and I found each other again. He said he was happy to see my daughter grow up. So we round the corner and see where everything is set up. I can’t see people’s faces, but everyone was in their chairs. I could make out Mr. Tattoo and his friends standing up there. So we approach the area where I will be walking down to meet Mr. Tattoo when he stops and says he can go no further. I would have to do this on my own, but he’d be watching. SO I walked down alone, but kept looking back and then in the middle of the aisle I turned into a little girl and ran back to sit with him.
Some other stuff happened but I woke up and realized….my dad is not going to be walking me down the aisle. 🙁
That’s all I can write because now I’m crying again.

I don’t know what that is like, and I’m so sorry you do.

*cue tears* I’m so sorry. I can’t say I know what you’re going through, because I dont, but your dad will be with you in spirit on your wedding day.
Are you planning on doing anything to honor him on the big day?

I would love to do memorial candles and carry his picture in a locket around my bouquet. It just doesn’t seem like enough.

@Miss Tattoo: my husband’s mother died 11 years ago. We left the closest ceremony seat to us empty for her with a photo of her holding him as a baby resting on it. I set my bouquet on the chair as my way of gifting and honoring her. Maybe something more visible like that would feel good?

@Miss Tattoo: I’m so sorry. I can’t imagine how rough this must be for you.
I have to say, though, that your dream is beautiful. I can understand why it affected you so much. Reading your description made me think “wow…her dad sent her a message last night.” I think that’s how you should think about it. He really is watching you and is proud.

I believe he is always with you in spirit, but chooses to reveal himself to you sometimes. Last night was one of those times.
Look at this dream as a gift. He told you he approves of your choice in men, he’s proud of you and he’s watching your daughter grow. He walked with you as far as he could in your adult life, but your inner child can always run back to him and feel his arms around you. And he knows you have a good man to hold you and take care of you.
What a fantastic gift from him… You have every right to feel sad and to cry, but I don’t think that’s what he wanted…

I think he was telling you through that dream that he will be walking you down the aisle in spirit right beside you. I do truly believe that when loved ones pass away they can come to us in dreams and communicate to us so this is truly special!

You know I’m always here if you need me. You know he is proud of you and the amazing job you have been doing the past 4yrs with the little one. Hold that head up high as you always do and remember he loves you forever.

sadly, I know EXACTLY what that’s like. My dad was always great with advice, so when I’m going through a tough time and could really use some “fatherly guidance”, that’s when I usually have those types of dreams. I’ve literally felt the same “Oh, I should give him a call right now!” after waking up, then realizing I can’t. It is a bummer. Might sound crazy, but when I’m home alone, I actually talk to my dad like he’s there (am I crazy or do any of you other ladies do that when you miss a loved one?).
Sorry it happened to you again. It just helps to remember the good times. I almost cherish those dreams, b/c it literally is the only time I get to “interact” with him again.

I’m so sorry for your loss. I’m sure that you will think of the perfect way to honor your father on your wedding day.
