So the strangest thing happened last night...

The strangest thing happened last night. Like many of you, I haven’t dreamt of my husband Jim at all since he died a little less than 2 months ago. So 5:30AM this morning I’m sleeping, dreaming some usual sort of dream, when all of a sudden Jim’s loud voice interrupts my dream! I hear, quite loudly “ Hallo!! Lyn Ann, are you there?” It was so loud my eyes flew open and I sat bolt upright. I was sure I heard it – with my ears, not just in my head. It was loud – but not urgent or alarming - it was just the sort of thing he would call out from the basement when he wanted me to come downstairs to help him find something.
I sat for awhile - didn’t hear anything else, so I got up and walked around making sure our son and the house was OK. I went back to bed – no more voices so I went to sleep.
So all day I was thinking about this – trying to figure out what this was. And then in the shower this afternoon it finally hit me…
Two nights ago I was reading blogs on this site. And I read a blog about someone wanting to see a sign from their husband… and someone else replied saying that if they looked carefully, and paid attention, they would see one….
So that same night – two nights ago - I prayed and asked for a sign. Anything, anything at all – just a sign that Jim was somehow, somewhere around, never far away, watching out for me. And then I went to sleep - and forgot about it by morning.
Then last night I heard his voice. Maybe I’m going crazy, or it was just my brain playing tricks. But I truly think that my prayer was answered and he sent me a little message.
So keep looking for the signs…
