A Heavenly Hug

It was towards morning when it happened.

I was sound asleep in my bed when suddenly, as I started to wake up, I felt a strong arm under my shoulders hugging me…my first thought was, It’s Him!   I startled awake, only to realize that I was lying on the hard edge of the new foam pillow I had purchased a couple of days ago.

Or was I?

The foam was supposed to mold to your head as you laid on it. There wouldn’t have been a hard edge there if it had shaped to my head.

It was a little bit eerie and scary until I realized that it MUST have been my dear husband that visited me in the night to give me a badly needed hug.

And then I remembered that before I went to bed that night, I mentally professed how I wished I could have some kind of communication from him, but I knew how impossible that was since he has been in heaven a little over 2 years now.

I have felt his presence before, but it doesn’t happen often.  When it does, however, it strengthens my faith and reinforces my belief in the afterlife.
