Phone CallMy Mother passed away in August of 2001. Needless to say I took her death very hard and grieved very much over her. I just couldn't seem to get her off my mind. I found it hard to believe that my Mother was actually gone!!
The following year in August 2002, my nephew was getting married on the 1yr anniversay of my Mothers death. This was the first time that the entire family was together since my Mother's death.
At the wedding reception when things had settled down a bit and my brothers and sisters were sitting at the same table the subject of Mom came up and we talked about her and about how we all missed her, and there were tears shed.
I went home that night and basically went to bed where I had a dream. In this dream I saw my sister talking on the telephone, she held it away from her ear and looked at me and said "Roger, Mom is on the phone and she wants to talk to you" So I took the phone and I said "Hello" then my Mother said. "Roger, This is your Mother. I have about 5 seconds to tell you this so don't say anything. I am doing fine and I don't want you to worry anymore, I love you." And that was the end of the conversation. After that my grieving did alleviate itself tremendously. I will always know that my Mom called from beyond to let me know that she was ok.
