Michelle F's ADCs

Experience description:  

My mother passed away July 6th 2013 from Colon cancer. She was 1 month short of a long two year battle with this horrible, ungrateful disease. Anyways, this has truly been my first loss of someone very close to me and did not really know what to expect. after her death my first signs from my mom was I was finding feathers everywhere. I never find feathers the way I did. I was finding them in front of my doorstep, in local stores I shop at frequently and so on. My mother had a very special connection with birds. Our family called her the bird whisperer. Wild birds would come land on her hand. Hummingbird, blackbird to name a few. So that was my first sign. About 2 or so months later I had my first dream of her. It was a sad dream. She was asleep or resting in bed with a white sheet and cream blanket on top of her. She looked so beautiful. I was either kneeling or just squatting on the floor beside her bed sobbing. Saying mom please don't go. I love you and will miss you. I am not ready for this. Please mom! She didn't say a word. I was apologizing for everything I didn't say or do for her. I told her I am so sorry that you are going through this. Then I think I woke up crying. I don't remember that dream as much.

The 2nd dream I had last night was that I was in some house. This was nighttime not sure what time. It was made out of a lot of wood. Wood beam coming down every five feet from ceiling to floor. There was a old tv sitting in the middle of some random room but that was off. All I can remember was I was just sweeping because the wooden floors were covered in dirt and some type of red shiny cellophane but it was everywhere! I was crying for my mother, I knew she was gone already and not coming back. I was crying out for her because I loved her and missed her so much. I continued sweeping and crying. I entered a living room area that was older looking with a huge red area rug and a couple older sofa and love seat in there, decorations of some sort on the wall. I happened to look over on the couch and hiding on the big sofa under big pieces of cardboard and a few blankets was my mothers eye peeking out. The rest of her was covered up. She saw me look at her but didn't get up right away because I knew she heard me crying if she was there. I approached her and threw the stuff off of her and said "YOU CAME BACK MOM"?! With a very puzzled but so ecstatic sense of emotion. I fell to the floor fast and was holding her arm and cuddling my face on her arm, smelling her skin and remembering the way it felt when she was here. Her skin was so soft like a baby's butt. I was so happy and was crying so hard!! She slowly sat up, smiled and said. "I missed you Meshaw" (my real name is Michelle, but with her Korean accent it always sounded like Me-Shaw) It always made me laugh when she said it that way.  Then she said "Where's Dad"?! (she was always worried about her husband) I said Oh he's at such and such's house watching a movie. We were all there watching movies. Then I woke up crying. This was at 4:30am.
