My father died in 1991(april, week after Easter). I was 21 at the time. I have only dreamed of my Dad twice, and last night is the second dream.
When Dad died, my boyfriend that I had dated for 6 years drove the family car. This was someone who was very close with my family. Dad had liked him
very much, apart from thinking he needed to go the the military to find himself(he thought the same of me too, so...) Needless to say, my boyfriend
was someone who was cared about by the whole family
A few months after Dad died, I had a dream where Dad was crying and very upset. All he could say was "Get away from him, he is not good for you, you
don't need to be with him" ect; and so on. I found that to be just a weird dream and put it to the back of my mind. A couple months later, my
boyfriend's *girlfriend* called. So, the dream then made sense. It turns out he had been cheating on me for a year. Long before Dad had died.
Obviously, that dream I remember. I am quite certain Dad was worrying about me and trying to help me
My dream last night I can't remember all of it. Dad was at my house, at the base of my stairs and he was dressed in a suit. He looked really good.
Younger and very healthy. I said "Dad! What are you doing here??" He said he was back. I wasn't creeped out or scared, I just remember trying
to figure out how he was dead and there too. Of course, as dreams go, things weren't "right". It was my house, but things were not as they
are. My bedroom was actually my Mom's and I was going to move upstairs to what is my daughter's room, so Mom and Dad could have the master bedroom.
You know, the weirdness of dreams.
The difference, in this dream he was very happy. I can't remember why. I am trying to remember what he said to me. I *think* it was that all is
good now and he was happy for me. I can't remember. I do remember feeling like more a child again than an adult.
I know this makes no sense. I think I am trying to type this out to recount it and find its meaning. Maybe he was trying to tell me my life is good
enough he can now move on?? Honestly, I don't know. It was just a dream but had that same feel the one 15 years ago had.
I do believe Dad has hung around me and my kids. I have seen a man on my stairs more than once. I have heard a man talking in my kids's room when
they were infants. My son even told me when he was three that my dad was his friend and talks to him when he saw a photo.
This has me just scratching my head. I may be falsely jumping to grabbing at straws. Just weird as this is not the kind of dream I have often
