Experience description:

Monday night, the night before my dream, i was talking out loud to my father and asked him for a sign to let me know he was watching over me.  The next day i drove my daughter to school and took a nap on the living room couch.

I started dreaming about being on the same couch in the same room, when my father came and sat down next to me on the middle cushion.  He was wearing a grey sweatshirt.  He had a glimmer to him and looked very healthy. When i realized it was my dad, I said to him "Hi, Dad" and i reached up and gave him a hug.  I didn't feel him give me a hug back.  He just grinned and took a bite of a kit kat bar, then disappeared.   i woke up very happy and  I had a peaceful feeling over my whole body. i was a little confused about the kit kat bar since he really never ate kit kat chocolate bars when he was alive.

I started crying then, because i realized he had answered my question from the night before about watching over me. So i called my mom and told her all about the dream and then she said to me that's funny i ate a kit kat bar last night before i went to bed. then i started crying again because he was letting me know that he was watching over the both of us, using the kit kat bar as the symbol.
