As I wrote in several other posts, I've been looking to buy a new house... for the last 6 years. I had my heart and mind set on a place a couple of
miles from where I live now. Last year we almost bought a house there, but we couldn't get a loan for it.
You see, the area where I really want to go live is forest land and since several years you aren't allowed to live there. Houses are still sold and
bought, but the banks want nothing to do with it. (I leave the rest of the details out)
So 3 weeks ago I came across a beautiful house on the internet. It was located in the same area as the one I wanted to buy last year. Couldn't
resist it and immediately made an appointment with the owner. When we walked through that front door, both me and my husband said “this is the
We signed an agreement with the owner and she gave us 3 weeks to try and get a loan, until then she wouldn't sell it to anyone else (there where a
lot of interested, but every potential buyer had the same bank problems as we had). Sadly, it only took several days to learn that the banks wouldn't
change their minds....
We notified the owner and ended the agreement.
It was the night of the 7th and the 8th of this month. I woke up at 2am from a vivid dream and I remembered every detail of it:
I dreamed that I was in an ancient Greek library, my father was there (he died in February). I asked him what he was doing here, shouldn't he be
'elsewhere' now? He answered that I couldn't possibly imagine what it is like (death?), that life on Earth is only an instant and that I shouldn't
worry so much. I started complaining to him about the house I couldn't buy... he answered in his usual voice, exactly as he would had done if he was
still alive. He said “ don't worry, everything will fall into place, you'll buy your dream house”. I asked him “how”? And he said “before
the end of the week”.
After I woke up from this dream I thought it was very strange and 'real', but nothing more. It won't be alright, no chance on earth that a bank
would give us a loan and certainly not before the end of the week, it was already Thursday.
The next morning I woke up at 7 am, as every day. By 8:30 am my phone rings.
It was the owner of the last house. She asked me if we could come see her after work because she had something she wanted to discuss. I asked her what
it was all about and she replied that “she had an offer that we wouldn't be able to resist”. She wouldn't say more over the phone.
Whole day me and my husband where nervous as hell, time crawled by slower then ever!
Finally at 6:30 pm we got to the house, sat down and listened to her proposal.
She explained that she was all alone, her husband died 6 years ago and they have no children. She doesn't care about money, all she wants is to sell
the house and move to the coast. She said she couldn't sleep at all the night before and kept going over 'our' options until she reached her
So... because she liked us so much, she wants to give us the loan herself: the amount of the sale price over a period of 20 years, no interest, no
I couldn't believe what I heard, but she was for real.
(we had an official agreement validated last Thursday and will move into the house this summer.)
When we got back in our car and driving home I yelled “thank you daddy!”
First the dream, then the phone call and next the solution to our problem... and our dream come true.
I told my husband about my dream the same night I had it, he wouldn't believe me if I hadn't or if I had told him afterwards. But now he also feels
something more is going on...
We both felt as if a miracle had occurred.

I had a previous sort like experience that I did a post on, not re-writing it but if interested you can read it here:
