Asleep and Dreaming
On November 01, 2001, I dreamed I was in an office,very pregnant and unsure of the due date.
My belly was glass and I could see my baby in utero. I was anxious and leaned against the wall.
I slid to the floor where I was comfortable.
I looked down. She opened and closed her eyes. I knew then she was okay.
Awake - Dream Over
As soon as I arrived at work, I received a very important phone call to return home.
A delivery man was at my house.
My first book (which writers usually call their baby) arrived.
"Sleeping Upside-Down" was her name. For me, it was like having a preemie,
(Because. I had not developed a platform) so, I wasn't at all prepared, especially emotionally.
That was a long time ago...but I haven't forgotten about it.
No one was around that day. Family and friends unavailable.
I slowly cut the cardboard box, hoping anyone would drop by.
My hands trembled with excitement while I opened the box and took my "baby" out.
I held her next to my chest.
How I enjoyed the feel of the paper, the shiny cover, the colors on the cover, and the font size, but
I believed that joy had more value when it was shared.
So, I called my mother on the phone, told her my dream and the good news.
She always made me feel better. I was blessed to have her so long.
Today it's easier to share across the miles on FB and phones.
Do you share your happy moments and have a special way to make your child feel better?
BTW, Just Think...
