This is my first time publishing one of my stories on here although I've always been a fan of reading stories on this website for years. I'm going to try to explain everything as much as possible.
So back in 2006 my family and I lost our grandma. It was extremely difficult for me because I had grown up with her and we shared a room together so that way I can make sure she was still breathing during the night as she was only able to breathe through her oxygen tank. When she passed I was only 8 years old and at the time I didn't know what death was but somehow I knew that she was gone.
Fast forward when I turned 15. I had never had any dreams of my grandma until then. One night in my dream, I had received a phone call and when I answered, it was a woman whose voice I didn't recognize. When I asked who it was, all it said was "don't tell me you forgot about me already?" and in that instant I knew it was her. I woke up in tears as I had been crying in my dream. The next day I told my mom what happened and she couldn't help but cry and said maybe she felt like I forgot her (which couldn't possibly happen.)
After a few years I had another dream which I don't clearly remember but all I can recall is that she walked into the room and I couldn't believe it was her. I was crying with my head on her lap while she was caressing my hair and I was telling her that I missed her.
Now let's fast forward to this year on the night before my 20th birthday. I dreamt that I was inside a room with my mom and apparently it was my grandma's room with her things inside. I was a little sad because I knew she was gone. While on the bed, I looked over my shoulder and saw my grandma was laying down next to me. I was so in shock that I burst into tears and she smiled at me. I was hugging her and telling her that I missed her everyday. I felt so at peace with her there. And just like that I woke up. I noticed every time I woke up I felt so much sadness in my heart.
The next day while my boyfriend and I were driving to my parent's house for my birthday dinner, I explained my dream to him and he said "Babe, your grandma came to visit you on your birthday." I hadn't thought about that until then which gave me the chills and made me get so teary eyed. I genuinely believe my grandma came to visit me that night and perhaps even thinks that I forgot about her. Thank you for reading.
