32. The night might grandfather died...

Apr 2013

I woke up from my sleep and sensed his presence at my bedroom door. Moments later my 6 month old daughter laughed. He had not yet been able to see her before he died.
In the morning I called my mother and asked her what time he died. She said, "Who told you?" As she was one of the few who knew. He came to our house to visit his granddaughter.
This same proud hard working man appeared to my aunties in their dreams. He lost his thumb in a farming accident. In one dream he held up his thumb and smiled, "I got my thumb back!"
For two weeks everyone in the family could feel his presence in our homes. We could not stop speaking of how young and vibrant his energy was in paradise, which came into our lives for those precious two weeks.
Moses ... he exists...
