Dreaming Of Bobby / Friday, July 17, Should Have Been His 40th Birthday

The following is a repost.

I Slept From 9 PM Wednesday Night Till 4 PM Thursday Afternoon.

I was so tired last night. Oh so tired. I remember walking into the kitchen to tell Danny I was going to bed. He just looked at me and then at the clock.
I fell asleep right away. I seldom do that.
I never heard anything until Danny came to bed. Never heard all the sounds that go on at night that always keep me awake. The interaction between Danny and Mr, Bojangles. The noise of the animals underneath the house or the rain that fell.
I slept soundly. Dreaming Of Bobby and his cousins when they were little. Dreaming of my parents. I feel as if I dreamed all night. Wonderful dreams of yesterday.
This morning, the sun was bright and I just rolled over on my side.
I heard Danny get up and I looked at the clock. It was 9:10.
I’d been sleeping for 12 hours.
I went back to sleep and slept soundly. More wonderful dreams.
Even when I finally got up at 4 PM, I could have slept some more. Yet, I knew I wouldn’t dream again. I got up.
I’d slept for 19 hours.
A little sad, that Bobby can only be heard in my dreams and on a few old cassette tapes I have.
Yet, happy and very thankful. that for hours….We were together again.
Mom and her son….Simply having fun.
Love you Bobby. Love my Memories Of You. My Dreams.

    Wonderful!! The best cure in the world for any ill is a really sound good night’s sleep. I’m glad you got to enjoy one!!

  3. Oh Sarah, I’m so glad you got to see Bobby again albeit in dreams. And I’m glad you were able to sleep peacefully and get that much deserved rest 🙂
    Hugs for you…! () ♡

    1. Rashmi,
      It was wonderful. I have never had a night /day’s sleep like that before.
      I was a bit achy but not sick.
      Yet, I was so tired. I dream every once in awhile but not the whole time.
      I have so many memories from the dreams.
      Love you.

    Cheers to sweet dreams 🙂

    1. Heather, Thank you. It has made me feel so much better. Refreshed. And I remember events I had forgotten.
      How are you doing this week? Happy Friday.

      1. Heather says:

        Happy Friday indeed 🙂 I’m glad you feel better.
        I’m good today, I feel lighter of mind than I have lately.

        1. “Lighter of mind”Sounds perfect.
          Enjoy your weekend.

          1. Heather says:

            You too 🙂

            1. Heather, Where did the weekend go? I had more time and still didn’t get much done?

              1. Heather says:

                It felt really long, but it seemed to fly by. I got to spend some time with my dad again, which is always fun. And then I proceeded to get nearly nothing accomplished. I don’t care…the weather was too perfectly autumny to do anything but bask in it 🙂
                Are you very busy with the park?

                1. Danny is. They are short handed. Down four staff for 3 weeks. Now only down 2 so that is better. Our winter volunteers are here and more on the way, PLUS I am working a couple of hours here and there. I use to work full time. Volunteering
                  The weekends are full or close to it from now on. In a few weeks we will be busy during the week again as well.
                  I envy you your time with your dad.

    You definitely needed that sleep and it gave you the chance to be with Bobby. I hope you feel more energized today. xoxo

    1. Oh it took hours to really wake up. A calmness came over me that I didn’t have before.
      How are you doing? HUGS

      1. amommasview says:

        Oh that’s beautiful! All good here. We have such beautiful weather. It’s really warm today. Feels like summer. So ready for it 🙂 Hugs too!

        1. I am glad it feels like summer for you.

          1. amommasview says:

            I was ready for it! Although it’s actually a crazy hot start into October, which is still spring. Makes you think about what summer might have in store for us…

            1. Laughing. I just want it to cool off.

                I can understand 🙂

  6. You clearly needed that sleep, Sarah. And how wonderful that it was filled with sweet dreams.

    1. Usually, if and when I do sleep, it is anything restorative. I toss and turn and can’t get comfortable. Danny said he had never seen me so relaxed.

      1. That’s wonderful. 😀

        1. It was wonderful to have a really restorative rest/sleep and to dream of the people I love as well.
          And DID I ever dream.

  7. Wow! I’m happy you had such a peaceful sleep.

    1. OH Cathy, it was such a good sleep.
      I didn’t want to wake up for obvious reasons but even that wasn’t as hard as it often is.

      1. Hi Debbie Sue,
        It’s nice to see you back! I dreamt of Justine last night. Isn’t it amazing how vivid our dreams are and how the feelings are real.

        1. My dreams definitely are vivid and oh so real. I am so glad you dreamt of Justine.
