I'm going to talk about something I find very fascinating and that's dreams. I've always been into dreams. Its amazing the things our minds come up with while we're sleeping. My sister reads books that tell you what dreams mean though I haven't done that yet if I ever come up for air long enough I think I will. I don't remember my dreams very often but when I do they're always really vivid and nine times out of ten if I wake up during the dream it continues when I got back to sleep. Weird but true.
When I was a kid I used to have a reoccurring dream that the only people left in the world were me, my sister, and my mom. Everything was dark and those gargoyle looking things from The Wizard of Oz were chasing us. Crazy huh? I haven't had it for years but that dream kept me awake many nights when I was younger. I haven't had it for years. Actually probably since I moved out to live on my own...funny I didn't realize that until right now. I wonder if that has any relevance?
Before I got pregnant with my first daughter I had a dream about driving in the car and singing at the top of my lungs with a toddler who rode in the backseat in the car seat. In the dream the little girl and I were laughing and singing while driving down the rode. I'd completely forgotten about the dream until one time, years later my daughter and I were driving in the car, Gwen Stefani was on, I was singing and she chimed in, singing at the top of her lungs with me. As soon as it happened the dream hit me, flashed into my mind like I'd just had it. I know the dream was about my daughter. At the time I had it I had no idea but I truly believe that now.
Do you have any reoccurring dreams? Are your dreams vivid? Do you forget them easily or are you like my husband who swears he never dreams because he never remembers them?
