My mother's voice sounds stronger now, and I can tell that she has found a little bit of peace.
My husband explained to me that it's all because of the "big news." Apparently, Ann's two best friends each had a conversation with her in a dream. She was younger, healthier, and she could see - - - she was no longer blind. Ann told both of them that she's happier now then she's ever been.
After I heard all of this, I burst into tears. I don't know exactly why...maybe because I don't know how to believe that these experiences are real. Maybe because I am so hopeful, so hopeful, that my sister has finally found happiness. Maybe because I miss her so much and still cannot accept that she is gone.
In my heart of hearts, I pray that it is true.
