Scary Dream

Last night I dreamed I was trying to take pictures of my mom.  She kept making all these perfect poses, that I just knew would turn out as pieces of art.  But every time I would put my eye to the camera, I would lose focus.   I kept trying to find her in my lens, but she kept moving or the camera would not focus right.  Then all of a sudden I had her in my eyepiece and right before I could click to capture the perfect picture, poof she was gone, and I mean just disappeared.  I started crying, and I mean crying.  Then I woke up, and I was still crying.  Guess I was thinking about time and how fast it is going now.  Guess I was thinking she won't always be there for me to take her picture.  Guess you know what I was thinking by that dream.  It was just a dream.  I don't really want to think about that day.  I just want to be happy the time I do have her, I wish I could spend more time with her.  She's a great lady!  Yep I'm missing you Ma!

Sorry you had such a horrible dream. But maybe it wasn't so bad. It served a purpose didn't it? You've always loved your mother but now you'll see her in a different, more precious way. She's blessed to have a son who loves her so much. I hope she's with you for a long, long time. {{{{Derek}}}}  *Barb*

You got me teary eyed with this entry.  Our parents are getting older...our time with them is limited.  Argh, I don't even want to think about it.
