Happy birthday, Tina

Every once in a while I have a dream about a girl I knew since early elementary school. She passed away in a car crash Christmas Eve about 3 years ago. I was never in her inner circle but while going to the same schools as her, we had mutual friends and talked in passing usually with a smile on her face and being excited about one thing or another.

I think her death hit me so hard because she hadn’t even turned 21. Knowing her exuberant personality, I found comfort in thinking she lived life to the fullest.

Yesterday out of random I dreamt about her almost going up a staircase but being afraid to take the last steps. I dreamt I helped her. After doing a little research, it turns out that today is her birthday! Strange coincidence. I decided to dedicate my prayer today to her. In a way I feel like I’m helping her soul up that dream staircase regardless of the religion she practiced years ago. Maybe it’s just all in my head, but saying a little prayer and meditating is cathartic. She may be gone, but not forgotten and I’m happy to have said a little prayer to celebrate her life.
