and I recently moved into an older rental house on the border
of a rough neighborhood. The house itself is great - it's
big and spacious enough for us, our dog, grandkids and garden,
although it needs work. However, when the sun goes down, it
feels scary. I am not concerned about spirits. I am concerned
about the living people nearby who are into crime and drugs.
my husband has to go out of town with his work, and this was
the case one particular week. His absence made me feel especially
nervous and vulnerable, and as a result I was not sleeping
I had the most amazing dream! I dreamt about my dad, mom and
both grandmothers, all of whom have crossed over. It was as
if I was watching old home movies of them. They all looked
so happy - young and full of life - my dad and his mother
were even dancing! This is something I never actually witnessed
in real life, and I watched in amazement.
dream, I was perfectly aware that they were dead and yet I
was getting to see them. This was very comforting because
they had been gone so, so long! When I woke up, I actually
spoke out loud, saying "I wonder if this dream is you
all trying to tell me not to worry because you are watching
over me. I love you all and miss you all so much - thank you!"
I proceeded to get ready for work. In the bathroom, after
brushing my teeth, I noticed a sweet aroma of something like
the scent of roses. I quickly dismissed it as possibly being
the soap, even though I knew the soap didn't smell like that.

a certain pair of earrings. That same scent suddenly appeared
again! I just stood there looking around, puzzled, trying
to figure out where this smell was coming from. I had not
put on any perfume and all the windows were closed tight.
Then it occurred to me that this was a sign in response to
the question I asked when I awoke - are they telling me in
this dream not to worry, that they are watching over me? What
a comfort it was to remember that my grandmother's favorite
flower was the rose.
