Counting My Blessings

You know those kinds of dreams that you wake up from and it takes you a few minutes to figure out if it has really happened or not?? And, sometimes after you fall back to sleep you fall back into the exact same dream all over again?? And, if the dream is of cruising around the Bahamas you're all bring it on baby!!

I had one of those dreams last night, but it was that Liam had died. And, I had it over and over again. And, every time I woke in a cold sweat trying to get my bearings. It was awful. It was heart-wrenching and miserable and I'm glad that 12 hours later I can't remember most of it. But, I do remember that I kept hoping every day that he would just appear in his room.

So when he woke a little after 6 this morning I leapt out of bed, poured him a tall glass of cold juice and let him have everything he wanted.  Because, life is too short for ridiculous rules all the time.

A good morning of endless snacks, snuggles, and kisses...because I am so blessed to have him in my life.


  1. I know what you mean. As awful as those dreams are, at least it gives us a reminder of what precious gifts we have and to make the most of every moment.
