This is Laura. I’m 8. I had a dream with Papa in it this morning. It was a dream in my dream where Tommy, all my cousins, and I were fighting over taffy, and I went back in the bedroom, and I saw Papa just sitting on the bed and Mama was still sleeping. Then, the phone rang so she woke up and left to answer it. Papa, Tommy, and I were all cuddling in the bed.
While I was cuddling, I felt Papa’s shoulder–just rubbing it lightly. Then Papa reached up his other arm, but his hand was off, which kind of alarmed me, but it was okay. Then he said, “It’s time to brush our teeth, guys.” And then I was staying there in bed, so I hurried to catch up with him and took off my covers, but I woke up because in real life I took off my covers.
I actually felt his skin! It makes me feel happy. I had my Papa back.
