My dad had a tattoo on his arm and in a scroll was our family's christian names - all except mine because I hadn't been born and the tattoo was a real ordeal for him, he hated having it done. I always said "don't put me on, I know you're needle phobic and I'll write it on with a pen after you've gone".
Well he died 5 years ago and I didn't put my name on his arm. About a year later I had the most vivid dream of my dad and that I was with him after he died and was writing my name on his arm with a pen.
The very next day my sister called and said, "I've had such a vivid dream about you and dad - you were writing your name on his tattoo after he had died".
Drawing on my dad after he'd died just didn't seem right at that time, but I do regret not writing my name on now because he would have expected it, he would have wanted me to do it too.
That does sound very coincidental... maybe he wanted you to know it was ok that you didn't and that he understood. And by you and your sister dreaming it, it was accomplished and he is happy. Awwwwwww.
Thank you for sharing that with me. It confirms that our loved ones are still with us even if not here physically.
I would like to come back and share when the time is right.
