I was thinking that there are times when something happens in my life that is hardly believable so I keep it to myself. When I first met Boo, I had one of those experiences.
Boo's parents both passed away before I had the opportunity to meet them. I had also never laid eyes on them in photos either. The first week, we were together, I "met" his dad. I was asleep when I dreamed that I was comfortably talking to a man who somewhat resembled Boo. He was soft spoken with friendly eyes. He told me about Boo. I woke up and later, I asked Boo if his dad was soft-spoken with a very gentle spirit. He said that he was. I asked to see a photo of him. He pulled out a picture of his dad and I told him, "I met your dad. That was him that I was talking to last night."
About a week later, as we were talking about visitation issues with Baby Boo, I had a dream where this time, I met his mom. Once again, I hadn't seen a picture of her. I felt her love radiating through her smile. She told me to tell Boo not to worry, that's she's keeping an eye out on the grandbabies. She also said that Boo can be hardheaded but not to give up on him. She had a twinkle in her eyes and a beautiful smile. Her skin was the color of smooth chocolate.
That same day, Boo brought out a picture of his mom. I smiled because I knew that I had had a special visit with both of his parents. Even now, I sometimes talk to them about their stubborn son. I still have dreams where we are talking together.
I wish that I had had a chance to spend time with them. I know that I would've loved laughing with them and caring for them. But, I'm thankful for the chance to meet them while still here on earth.
Do you have an unbelievable story? I want to hear!!
