writer's workshop: signs

i'm doing mama kat's writer's workshop this week because one of the prompts was perfect for something i've been thinking about for the past 24 hours.

If you were the type to believe in "signs," describe a "sign" you have received from someone.

on monday night i had the pleasure of seeing sam in several of my dreams. it was so good to see her again. i posted about the dreams on twitter and one of my friends replied to me that the vietnamese believe if a loved one passes away, then appears in your dreams it means that they truly loved you and have used your dreams as a way to say goodbye. i did some googling and found that a lot of people believe this to be true.

i can't think of any reason not to believe in it as well. some people even believe that our deceased loved ones try to communicate with us throughout the day, too, but for some reason when we're asleep we're just more receptive to it. i've always been a little "extra-sensory" so i'm actually looking forward to seeing signs of love from sam when i'm awake too :)

Crazy that we both wrote about the same thing!! I totally believe they're coming to us in dreams with a purpose...and I'm not even Vietnamese. ;)
