Now I hardly ever remember my dreams ... and when I do it's only bits and pieces...and they feel so real. I often tell people, I NEVER dream...because I can never remember them.

But last night I dreamed about my father... I haven't saw him in around 14-15 years. I have never dreamed of hime before..and I surely wasn't thinking about him before I went to sleep.

In the dream he showed up at my house... I never thought I would be happy to see him... and my mother was there to... I guess he needed a place to stay...and although it had been so many years he looks the same as I remember him from when I was a child and pictures.

I only remember bits and pieces... but I remember talking to him about music. I remember he used to listen to classic rock and that's what I listen to... We talked about country music, Patsy Cline. I don't remember all the converations we had in the dream...

But I do remember vividly asking him "Why are you here dad? Did you just need money, a place to stay, or did you really want to see me? I remember then he started to cry... Never remember him crying before.... and he said he wanted to see me... that he's been wanting to see me. I don't ever remember him apologizing though(in the dream)

I also remember my mother making him food... In the drema my mother and I got in an argument.. because she said something to embarress and put me down in front of my father. So we had it out.... and my father says "Some thing's never change... How you two go back and forth"

Now this comment is signifigant to me because... One of the last times I saw my father he got VERY angry over the fact that my mother and I argued so much... I though for a long time as a kid that's why he didn't want to come around... because my mother and I didn't get a long and we would always fuss at each other...

So I don't know... I'm sure I could remember more of the dream if I tried.. It's just weird how I have never dreamed of him until now...

I have been extreme;y depressed for a couple weeks.. and when I woke up after seeing him in my dream... I feel a lot better.. for some reason... It was like seeing him and interacting with him... made me feel better in reality... Like seeing him comforted me in some way... very strange.. because I always said I don't want to ever see him... I would never reconnect with him... So it's just puzzeling to me...

He slept in the spare bedroom.... he fell asleep while we were talking..and I remember staying in the bed and watching him sleep for awhile.... hmmm?
