How often do you dream of a parent who has died?

Grief, and grieving dreams are very common. Perhaps you often dream of family members, friends, or pets who have died. Perhaps you never do.

If one or both of your parents or guardians have passed away, how often do you dream of them?

Never nor would I want to. Not the parents you’d dream about it would be nightmares. Great act up front not so great behind close doors. My escape was I joined the air force and built my own life and family and remembered what to avoid when raising my children.

So true. That would be my worst nightmare. Hope we’re not required to meet in the afterlife. LOL!

Well, the word Dream begs for more definition. I don’t think I’ve ever had a dream while sleeping of any of my ancestors. However, there are many days all the time when I think of them…and, I consider that experience to be a day-dream. In fact, it has brought about two recent books and many genealogical discoveries.
To discover the family history is a wonderful thing. Make the effort. Write it all down.
Pass it along to your descendants. To know where you came from and give that to your family is a marvelous blessing.

Immediately after my mother in law passed away, I started noticing the clock at 11:11, 12:12, 2:22, etc. I feel in my heart it is her saying hi to me every time I see it, I can’t remember ever noticing those times as definitively on a regular basis before she passed. Now I say hi Betty Lou! 👋

Dream about both my parents, think of and am reminded of them often in daily life.

The only time I dream about my parents are flashbacks to some hellacious beatings I got as a kid for being a “stupid kid”.

I still miss and think of my Mom, especially on the holidays when she use to come for dinner. Sometimes I get a sign at Christmas. The photo sensor lights the Christmas tree up during the day. When there’s no reason it should come on. I like the polls even if they have nothing to do with RVing. Interesting to hear peoples comments.

Hi, Bob. Thanks for your comment. True, dreaming about your parents may not have anything directly to do with RVing. However, all RVers have/had parents, so it kinda fits. Have a great day. 😀 –Diane

My mom, passed at 44 years of age and the strangest day of my life was when I was the exact age (to the day) of her on her passing. And the day after when I realized I was then older than she. Think of her (gone 33 yrs) nearly every day but in a healthy way!
Love her and miss her everyday! ☺♥

I am fortunate that my mom is still around and dad just passed 2 months ago. So, have not really had much of an opportunity to dream about him.

I don’t remember my dreams but I think of my deceased parents several times during a year. I especially think of my mother on Easter Sunday since she was a very religious women who loved dressing up and attending her church. She died way too young at 50 yrs old.

I do not necessarily dream about my mother, but she pops up in my thoughts quite often.

I dream quite often of my father. Typically he is helping me to resolve a situation. Recently I dreamed I pulled into an RV park I stayed at for 2 months a couple years ago. In the dream the park was closed and gated but open for boondocking. Roads were muddy and rutted, just like when I actually camped there. And I backed my 5th wheel into the same muddy site when it sank up to the axles. In the dream my dad showed up to help get me out of the mud, lending advice just as he had when he was alive. In reality I had to get my RV out of the mud by putting the dually truck in 4L. Somehow I would like to think that the sage advice he gave me when growing up on the farm filtered up to the present day situations.

My Dad died in 93 and Mom in 06, I do think of them once in a while. My MIL is now 91 and when she passes, my wife and I will be the oldest members of our family remaining. Time passes and eventually so will we pass on so the next generation can continue the cycle of life.

This Is Kind Of A Creepy Poll…. What Does This Have To Do With “RV Travel”?

Parents (and others, too) can, and many do, die while traveling.

Both my parents and in-laws camped, for us it was a family thing as we tried to camp together a lot. So it is related in a way. As much as asking white or wheat!

A “creepy” poll? Interesting, maybe, but I don’t think it’s creepy. And what does it have to do with RV travel? Don’t/didn’t all RVers have parents? Just sayin’. Have a great day. 🙂 –Diane

Both my parents passed away 50 years ago when I was in my 20s. Though I don’t dream of them there is few days that go by that I don’t think of one or the other in some capacity.
