Do you ever have those dreams that when you wake up felt so incredibly real?

I've had a couple of those recently...about my mom.

My mom passed away when my Lance, who is 13, was five weeks old. It was a terrible time. I had a newborn, diagnosed with a bleeding disorder and my mother died. What was supposed to have been a joyful time in my life, was filled with pain and confusion.

The Lord led us through it. Even though I was angry with Him, He never left my side.

In this dream my mom came to visit me with my sister. Nothing particularly special happened in the dream, she was just with me. I felt her hug me.

I think God gives us these encourage us. Is that a crazy thought?
