I have another story to share with you. I'll start it off by saying that me and my cousin Paul were very close. He was only a year older than I. We were living close to each other, our parents always had us in the same soccer teams when we were little, as we got older we started going to concerts together...(we both love music).
We both have completely different schedules with work and all. He had a girlfriend and I had a boyfriend but we always tried to keep in contact. Paul always made time to see how I was doing even if it was over the computer.
Last year I was driving home from work when I got the worst phone call of my life. My mom crying on the phone told me to pullover. I already knew something wasn't right so I screamed for her to let me know what had happened. She told me that my cousin had got into a car accident, and had passed away. I flipped. I freaked out, I started punching my car window. I knew I had to pull over and just try to breath. I couldn't understand that someone so young, only 21 had died.
My cousin Paul who I was very close to. I had so many questions to ask. I asked God why? Why did it have to be Paul? Along with a zillion more questions. I just had to accept that it was Heaven's gain.
So straight to the point now, it was about a month after Paul's accident, the night before my first day of my new job as a Custody Officer. The night before I was very nervous, scared because I didn't know what to expect. I finally fell asleep. The next morning I woke up to the most beautiful dream ever. I was sitting on a couch when out of nowhere Paul sits next to me. I knew he had passed and I was very surprised to see him. He looked great, big smile, even looked as though he lost some weight. People say after death people are more healthy looking. I told Paul that I missed him so much and that I love him. I also asked him how Heaven was like? He replied "Man, it's great, it's amazing. I just have a lot to do".
I then asked him if it hurt when he died. His reply was a smile "Nope". I was glad to hear that. I had one more question to ask him, the most important one I had. I asked him if he was going to be there when it was my turn to pass on. He looked at me and said "Duh fool" and nudged my arm. It was something he always did to me while he was alive. After my questions he disappeared.
I woke up the next morning and told me mom right away. I know it was more than a dream, that it was my cousin telling me he was alright and for the rest of the family not to worry.
Let's just say after his visit, I wasn't nervous about my new job anymore, I actually went in with a smile. I know my story was a bit long but I hope you enjoyed it.
