Thanksgiving Dream

I had one of those dreams last night.  You know, the kind where you wake up with crusty tears left over in your eyes and a sadness that you have to think about.
I dreamed that I was left homeless along with my mother and father.  Now I have no idea why my husband was not with me and why I was without a home with my mom and dad, but that's what it's like with dreams!  So we are homeless, but we could not find anyone to help us.  We kept asking different people and then asking those same people over and over again, but not only could we not get any help, everyone was so mean to us.  It was so sad and frustrating.
 I forced myself to wake up slowly so that I could remember what my dream was about and ponder what was making me so sad.  I was trying to make sense of it.  I realize now today, more than ever, how thankful I am to have a home, a loving family, and a caring mother and father.  I feel so bad for all of those people in the world, during this season especially, that don't have that. As  I slowly got out of bed, my feelings changed from a lingering sadness to a renewed happiness.  A better sense of what I have in my life.  I'm so glad that I have a husband that provides for me and children and grandchildren that I can kiss and hug and admire their beauty and health.  I feel like I need to make another person's life better if I can.
We had a great Thanksgiving, and that could be what inspired my dream.  I hugged and kissed my beautiful granddaughter, Leanna, all day!

I was surrounded by family.


And we all enjoyed great food!


Look at the wild hair on this little girl!  Because of the way the baby hair is rubbing off, she's now got a mix of  mohawk and  mullet.  She is just the happiest little girl.  And so am I!!

I don't like dreams like that, they can be so unsettling. I'm glad reality struck home for you straight away. Love the picture of you hugging your granddaughter... she's a picture all by herself.

I am sorry you woke up with tears after you dream, I do it too! Dreams can be weird sometimes and have meaning too! There are so many people doing without this year and I am going to help someone as part of my Christmas giving!

I dream a lot, some make sense and some don't. The ones I enjoy the most are the ones with my Mama and Daddy in them! Some feel so real and I wake up sad that they are gone but happy that I got to spend some time with them in my dreams!

Sweet baby girl! Ruffled hair and all, I just love kissing on babies:) Have a blessed day dear Nina! HUGS!

There's nothing like a dream to really help us see our reality. You are so very lucky to be blessed by your family.

I am glad it was all just a dream, Nina. I have those too, but not as often now as I once did. Your pictures show a loving, happy family. You are indeed blessed.

What if I told you that your Mom and I were shared your dream with you. Would that 'blow your mind?' Well, we didn't. So that ought to make you feel better. Love, Dad
