Weirded Out

Last night, I dreamed my mother wasn’t feeling well. I gave her a red necklace and some chicken soup and put her to bed.

This morning, Mom called me. She had swallowed a pill wrong the night before and coughed until her throat was sore. She was canceling our plans for the day and going back to bed. With a sore throat. Like red around the inside of her neck rather than the outside.

I’m used to having that kind of connection with #4 daughter, but this is the first time it’s happened with Mom.

Okay, that’s officially Weird.

Speaking of weird, I’m posting today at Fatal Foodies about my Cousin and Cheerios.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: A character experiences an extra-sensory connection with a relative he or she hasn’t seen for a long time.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

      Hi, Gisele! I’m glad your parents were okay after your scary dream. Thank goodness, most of our scary dreams don’t come true!

      Oh, Crystal, I certainly understand that! Sometimes I wake up from one of those dreams and I have to call and make sure everything’s all right. With our youngest daughter, she often says, “How did you know something happened?” It’s not a gift, is it?
