This is the first New Years that I’m spending with Kevin and his family.
This is the 3rd New Years that I’m spending without my family.
Everyone went to visit my mom before the New Years weekend began. Although I haven’t visited her this year, my brother reminded me that at least mom visits me in my dreams.
This triggered the two vivid dreams that I remember about my mom. And they both were about Chinese New Years.
I remember she and I were eating the typical Chinese New Year eve dinner with everyone and my mom asked me to go eat lunch with her tomorrow. I didn’t know how to reply and turned to my sister. My sister knew what my concern was and replied, “Chinese New Years is the day that mom can visit for two days.” I remember I was very happy and excited to hear that and accepted my mom’s offer. Then my other dream involved me making dumplings with my mom. My dumplings looked ugly and my mom told me they were just fine. While we were preparing it for new years, I recalled my mom kept telling me how she knew all my favorite foods. My dream ended with my mom telling me, “you know, you can visit me whenever you want.”
Those are the two dreams I remember most. In a way, it’s like I already spent my Chinese New Years with her.
Hope everyone’s new years is full of love and happiness :)
