  1. My mother past away 11 years ago. I had a dream last night that we were swimming in the ocean. The ocean was calm and she told me she felt refreshed. In my dream I was worried about her so I kept close while swimming out and I lagged behind when swimming back to make sure there were no sharks lurking in the water. After we finished swimming we sat in the sand and watched people. It was a pleasant dream as my mother loved the ocean when she was alive.
