I've never seen this ability in my daughter. But this morning at breakfast, I thought I heard my daughter say that while she was sleeping, she heard a message to pass on to me. This intrigued me quite a bit. I asked her who sent the message and what the message was. She couldn't remember any of it. My mother, who passed away about 8 weeks after my daughter was born, had her birthday this past Friday. I was sure the message was from her. I asked my daughter if the message was anything like "I love you!" She said it definitely wasn't that!
I was at a loss and very confused. My daughter went on to say that she received the message while I was sleeping. I told her she must have been sleeping too! She said she wasn't, which confused me because I thought it happened while she was dreaming. I mentioned this, and she said she that wasn't the case--she was awake when she heard the message.
I was really confused. Then I realized that someone must have called and left a message on the answering machine. Sure enough, the light was blinking. It was her soccer coach who called to let us know what time soccer was meeting this morning!
