Dreams

Do you have dreams? I certainly do even though wisdom learned through my journey of life has told me not maybe to make them as large ... When we dream and take a leap of faith we also teach our children it is ok to dream and enjoy... I dream of seeking out lovely objects of the past that may have a story to tell of a good life or one that it may have been kicked around pretty good... All being signs of survival and endurance that is ever so important in our own lives. So many times you will hear someone say " It spokes to me".... I understand that fully as many things have spoken to me and if they were at all in my budget may have come home with me ... Many little objects spoke to me as I rescued many I am sure... These objects may not be desirable to anyone else but myself and that also is ok. I had a dream for the last 2 years of replacing a existing fixture in my dining area and was able to full fill it the last couple weeks ago as I shared with you in a post earlier... It took patience and understanding that I most likely wouldn't be able to have just the one I dreamed of but I am so very happy with what I was able to find and have....
Last evening I watched and listened to President Obama as is words stayed in my mind and heart... speaking at the memorial service of the sad event in Arizona that has been in our news for several days now. His words can be healing if each and everyone of us can allow them in our hearts and minds. Here in blogland, I find those words to be true as we share thoughts of everyday happenings and kind comments with one another even though many of us live a less dramatic life than others may... Each day when I arise I know I will be spending a large part of my day with all of you as I read, write, and post... This is also full filling a dream of a peaceful and enjoyable life.. Dreams can be very small but cause a great amount of contentment and happiness.
As I sip my coffee and peer out the picture window of my home I view a lovely winter scene... Very large snowflakes are ever so gently making their way to the already snow blanketed ground.. It is so lovely !! Finding beauty in details creates a dreamy sort of romance... Allowing yourself the time to be aware of little details that surround us can create a life we all dream of. It may be a simple but mighty way of full filling the imagination of what we call dreams.. Finding beauty in people, places and objects makes a lovely place for us to be. Life can be extremely spectacular if we all take some time... Enjoy your day.... It's a blessing.....

Dear Marietta,
What happened in Arizona was such a tragedy. President Obama did a wonderful job (I thought) with very heartfelt words. Personally, I'm sick of all the finger pointing and name calling.

I've always been a dreamer. When I was a little girl I had one teacher that had to move my seat away from the window. She told my Mom I was always daydreaming. Still am I suppose.

It's been so long since I've seen snow. We lived in Utah for 5 years and I saw way too much of it then!!

Hope you have a lovely day ~

It's good to dream, to get away from realism every now and then, nothing wrong with that. I personally think it also feeds your brain and stimulates your creativity in more than just one way. Daydreaming may just bring you the solution you were thinking of too deeply before. I agree with you that life is a precious gift, that's why it's such a tragedy what happened in Arizona. I often wonder what the deeper meaning of such tragedies is, is there one at all? Maybe we will know the secret of life once we've reached the end. Meanwhile, we have to try our utmost to see life for the true gift it is. Have a wonderful weekend Marietta!!

I too like to rescue old thing that may not be of value to anyone else but they please me and make me happy when I see them in my house. I am glad you were able to get the light fixture and it pleases you.

HI Marietta
I agree - the more worn and loved a object is the better I like it. I love it when it tells a story, it connects us with the past so we can appreciate the now. Dreaming is another word for faith, "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11
Have a great weekend
Blessings
