Well I am so sorry I have not blogged in ages! Then again, those of you who follow my blogs may be happy that it has been nearly 4 months!
I had a pretty disturbing dream overnight -- and I don't remember my dreams very often, so I know this is a "biggie" when I so clearly recall it hour later.
In my dream, there was some sort of hostage situation going on, and the bad guy was in the ladies bathroom causing issues. For whatever reason, I went in there to help some of the women escape, and told them to go hide in the mens bathroom. So after several women and I went into the mens room, the bad guy bursts in, wants to know who was responsible for helping the women escape, I said I was, and he proceeds to shoot me several times. The weird part: I was killed with the first bullet, but watched from an out of body experience as he kept shooting me, wondering why he needed to do that? I was dead already!
OK so that's enough for most dreams, but the next part is what really hit me. I wanted to say goodbye to my wife, kids, friends, etc. But I couldn't -- I was DEAD! And I cried!
And that is when I woke up -- and as you can imagine, a bit disturbed!
So won't ever know if I am going to be in a hostage situation, but maybe the real lesson of the dream is never assume you always be able to see your family and friends again, so take the time to shake their hands, hug them, kiss them, and tell them you love them!
WOW! What a way to start the week!
