Last night was the 20th year 'anniversary' (I hate to use that term) of my fathers death. I am 25 years old. He passed away 5 days before my 6th birthday. Yesterday seemed to be one of the hardest... Living all this time without your father is far from easy. I am engaged and wonder who I am going to have walk me down the aisle on my wedding day. I have randomly had dreams with him in it throughout the years but never really any signs or what not.
They were random, I'd dream that I ran into him at a store but he was a different person and had no idea who I was. My grandmother (his mother) passed away this past May. She was the only person who constantly reminded me of how much he loved me.
Here is the story:
Last night when I was finally dozing off to sleep I kept waking to a BRIGHT LIGHT shining in my eyes. It was almost like someone was standing over me with a bright flashlight in my eyes. I woke up, and it was completely dark, I looked around a bit kind of worried because a few months back our house was burglarized. I fell back asleep and once again, the light was shining in my eyes so I woke back up, and nothing...
I just can't seem to stop wondering if it was my fathers presence. Maybe he saw how upset I was yesterday and just wanted to show me he was here and watching me. I'm still heartbroken over his death 20 years later and I just want to know he is up there watching my life not missing a thing.
Has anyone ever had something similar to this happen before? Or can you help me explain it...? It would help so much and be appreciated greatly if you can share your thoughts and related stories.
Thanks so much!
