I had one of the first dreams with Eric in it last night.  We were moving into an apartment in a tall building and there was an earthquake.  Of course I grabbed him.  I HATE earthquakes!  But not as much as death.  I would take an earthquake with Eric any day over an earthquake free life without him. 

I woke up with a severe loneliness.  It was rough.

((Hugs)). Dreams are strange. And yes, waking up from them can bring on extreme loneliness and sadness. Because we get to see them again for a brief moment and then they are gone again.

 Mrs Freddy.  Not an odd dream to have...the earthquake you  dreamt of is your pain  and reaching for Eric is what you want to do to get rid of it  but you can't. The loneliness is waking to another day of reality.  No easy way through this widow-grief my easy way.    Know the life changes.  As you read this you are awake and safe. I hold you in prayer for more restful sleep-soon.     lj
