She Came to Me in a Dream

Last night I had the most incredible dream that I have to share with you all.

I pulled into a parking lot in Israel and got out of the car. Across the lot, I could see my great aunt, Mashita, standing up by another car. I rushed over to greet her. As I came close, I saw the back door of the car was open, and inside my grandmother, Baba Sofi, was sitting. Baba is in a wheelchair now and can't walk, but I wrapped my arms around her and lifted her up out of the car, and she stood up beside me!

Then I got into the back seat of the car. In the driver's seat in front sat my Great Grandmother Malka, (we call her 'Little Abuela') who passed away when I was 18. We were extremely close when she was alive, and everyday I wear the star of David she gave me as a gift when I was nine years old. She looked beautiful. Her face was no longer lined with the wrinkles of age, but was smooth. She looked young, maybe in her 50s. I wrapped my arms around her and kissed her on the cheeks and exclaimed how excited I was to see her!
"I miss you so much," I said.
"You shouldn't." She replied.
"Why?" I asked.
She smiled and said, "Because I am always with you."

At that moment, I opened my eyes, and found myself back in my bedroom in Philadelphia. I sat in the darkness with a sense of wonder. I felt, not like I had just had a dream about my great-grandmother, but as if I had actually just been with her. I had an overwhelming sense of her presence, as if her spirit actually came to me in my sleep to remind me how much she loves me.

As I got up to use the bathroom, I clutched the Star of David around my neck in my hands and reminded myself of her words: "I am always with you." I have been on a kind of spiritual high the whole day.
