Some updates on my mother’s search! My grandfather, my mother’s dad, is indeed alive. It has been a very long time since we even saw him and my mom just texted me.
Here is our convo:
MOM: “Ok walter harlow still alive evelyn calls him from time to time.”
SON: “You are talking to her??? and ur daddy is alive!”
MOM: “We just emailed on ancestry then she gave her email and i have her mine then she sent a pic of her with walter and i feel ugh i lost his address years ago ugh”
SON: “Oh mommy…how do you feel right now!? *shocked smiley face*
MOM: “I am a terrible daughter.”
SON: “Oh please! DO NOT SAY THAT. obviously these things do happen. u turned out to be a great mother!!”
MOM: “I hear ya”
SON: “Oh mommy 20 years is truly changing for both of us!”
MOM: “Yep. So tonite i think i will start a long email.”
SON: “I want to cry. Mommy. :)”
MOM: “Me 2 but everyone still up”
My mother is truly an amazing person and now is the time to reconnect with her father! I am so beyond words right now and I would like to share the experience with all of you because you deserve to here a little piece of my life. I mean, I am shocked and I did cry a bit. To know that the internet is that powerful to seek out long lost family members is amazing!
thanks for reading and listening.
So my sister called me today. She wanted help on understanding her dream. I whipped out the books and started her counseling treatment LOL Well, she dreamt that she was going to our dad’s house and they had to visit our grandfather because he only had 2 days to live. When they arrived, my sister saw our dead grandmother dressed in evening dinner attire sitting in our grandfather’s chair in the kitchen. My sister later recalled seeing our Aunt and cousin getting ready to go to church. My dead grandmother told my sister to be good and not to worry.
I was hoping a much more spiritual expert could understand this so much better than I. I leaned on this being a spiritual encounter for my sister to try and spend more time with our grandfather instead of hanging out with friends. Yet the symbolism of what took place is making believe that my grandfather will be leaving us in 2 seconds, 2 minutes, 2 hours, 2 days, 2 weeks, 2 months, or 2 years. Two can symbolize duality whether it be life and death or male versus female. The balance of life. Yin and Yang.
It being my dead grandmother in the kitchen, a place where we come and go from the house. And sitting in my grandfather’s chair. That is his place for every family function and daily sanctuary. For her to replace him in that specific place is significant.
SO my advice to my sister is to pray, ask for guidance from a spiritual someone, or meditate. I also told her to try and spend more with him and to really look at him and ask herself what makes him so special. Maybe she needs this in her own life in 2 days.
