yesterday i received in the mail from my aunt, a ring from my mormor. i had asked my mom to request it when the sisters were dividing up mormor's things. (it's a ring she wore a lot in her later years on her ring finger. i guess she stopped wearing her wedding ring some time after morfar died. maybe it didn't fit anymore.) then last night i dreamt about my grandparents, and actually, mostly about morfar. he was showing me some lettered stitching on some tapestry, and i thought to myself in the dream, "so that's why i'm interested in letters and in sewing..." i woke up crying. not because my grandfather was interested in letters and sewing in real life and i inherited that from him (not the case in reality), but because i miss him and mormor. he was so real in my dream, moving around and talking. it's weird how memory in dream can be so much more accurate than waking memory. it's nice to have those dreams.

mormor's ring fits perfectly on my ring finger too. :-)

What a very special, vivid dream. Funny, I called my grandmother "mormor" as well - it's all about the scandinavian roots!

Thanks for the sweet plug - the blog admiration is very, very mutual - I think that "Mecozy" is the bee's knees.

Åh, mormors fina ring! Den passar jättefint på ditt finger; lyser upp liksom! Du gör den rättvisa, kära kusin. Fortsätt använda den!

I heard a Warren Zevon song today called "Keep Me In Your Heart" and it reminded me of someone I lost very recently. It's so difficult, but we can keep them with us and they will visit us in dreams.

I'm glad you got your ring.

oh gosh ... i have woken up crying for the same reasons. i hate it when people are gone. it sounds so silly to say but it sucks. i love that you have your mormor's ring.
