I Awoke From A Dream

I awoke from a dream last night...

where bits and pieces of the memory were pulled together like an abstract collage.

It began with the three most precious men in my life standing at the sea shore, watching the waves roll over the sand. 

Somehow I was swept away to a rooftop in what appeared to be the jungle with the ocean shortly off in the distance.

And there were limes. So many limes. Fresh margaritas were beckoning. This dream was getting better by the minute.

I started squeezing the limes. In the kitchen. Where my head was in the trees.

When I turned around, I spotted this hammock perfectly positioned ten paces from the kitchen counter.

Aren't dreams amazing the way they provide everything you need without hesitation?

Not certain if it was the heat or the margarita, but some mysterious creature began playing a game of hide and seek in the tree above.

Oh, and surprise! The kids were with me in my dream. They were walking along a dirt road, headed toward the beach. Perfectly content. Amen. 

And that hard working graduate was there too. 

The mood was mellow.

The surroundings blissful.

And at the end of the day, we were all together.

Soaking up every last ounce of sunshine available to us.

Until the day was done.

I'm hoping for another dream like that tonight.

This was the song playing over and over again in the background.
