A Personal side of me ~ The Dream ~

By
Real Estate Broker Owner with Independent Broker Pagosa Springs, Colorado

Today I am feeling a little melancholy, with what would have been the 21st Birthday of my youngest son. I have not shared the following dream with many, but for some reason was compelled to share with you, before I go set a Balloon free with a message of Love.

Jacob Lennie Eliason

5/19/91 ~ 8/4/92

Approximately 6 weeks after the passing of my son

I was visited, by him, in a dream:

The Dream

My wife, my oldest son and myself pulled up in front of the airport and parked. I got out and walked around to the passenger side and before I could get my family out of the car, a gentleman that had been checking luggage and looking at tickets, turned to me and said, "There's someone here that wants to see you." From underneath the podium where this man had been, appeared my baby Jacob.

He motioned as if he wanted me to pick him up, and I did, as fast as humanly possible. The whole world disappeared. The embrace of my son took me to a place, I'd never been before. A place of nothing but pure Light, Love and Peace. It was all consuming.

The next thing I remember, I was walking with him down a tunnel of light. His left hand, in my right, walking... A hand reached out and took my sons right hand and I heard, "He'll be okay, he's with us now"

The hand was of my Paternal Grandfather, for whom Jacob's middle name, derived.

I felt a sense of calm. A sense of True, pure Love. I wanted to stay here in this place and I told my Grandfather so. He said to me, "There are things you still must do"

I woke up in my bed at home, crying.

_____________________________________________________________________

 

I have things to do. Maybe I have done some of them already. Maybe they are yet to be accomplished. I guess that's not for me to decide or even try to figure out.

Today is Jacob's Birthday and I'll be spending most of it sharing memories of the short time I had with him.

Happy Birthday Baby! I Love You Jacob!

Now you know....

Everyone ~ Thanks to each and every one of you. I struggled a very long time with this. I even jumped into a bottle for several years. It wasn't until I had a revelation in 2010 that I was finally able to change direction and have more focus on the path I was meant to follow. My other son Joshua, (22 years of age) has had Type I Diabetes since he was diagnosed in 1995 and I think one of the reasons I am still here is to bring awareness of this devastating disease. I am currently looking into holding an annual JDRF "Walk to Cure" event, here in Pagosa Springs. This is an event that, apparently, has never been brought to this County and I aim to change that!  Thank you all again for visiting. Thanks for the words of wisdom, love and support. You are all great!!!   :)

Jon, what an amazing story event, happening, lost for the right word. But we don't think it was a dream, we think it happened. How very touching. Thank you for having the strength to share it with all of us and the strength to climb out of the bottle. Yes, Joshua is is good hands now and they are smiling down on you.

We hope you do that Walk to Cure Jon, we really do. Good luck in all you do!

Al & Peggy ~ I too, think it was a visit from the other side. I hope to do the JDRF Walk to cure in September. I have some work to do in getting it arranged and hopefully the High School will let us use their Track for the event. I really look forward to it. Thanks!
