Happy Father's Day to all of the Mental Dad's and Caregiver Dad's out there. I hope you all are surrounded by your families and the day is filled with laughs and love.
That is not the way it is for many of us. Some of our families are so toxic that is has become best for us to not attend family functions. Some of our dad's have passed away.
My dad passed away a couple of years ago. I miss him terribly. For the first time in years, I dreamed about him. It wasn't a dream full of message and spiritual vision, it was a dream of him comforting me, in the dream. He kept checking in to make sure I was comfortable, where I was sitting and where I was laying down relaxing in a living room that was neither his, nor mine. I was talking to a former coworker and telling them to stay with the company or they would regret it. My dad kept checking in with me. It was sad that I was telling this guy to stay when I couldn't tell myself that a year ago. But I was aware of my dad checking my comfort in the dream. I thought it was very sweet.
Weird ass dream, but I am grateful for it this Father's Day!
