I have been sleeping more soundly this week, and having a few dreams that I can remember, which is unusual. Last night, I dreamed that I was working at Wal-Mart. I got to work and walked in the door only to realize that I hadn’t changed clothes and had on a pair of blue shorts.
No panic yet. I would just buy a pair of pants and a shirt. I begin looking for blue jeans, even though I need khakis. When I can find blue jeans, I start looking for blue slacks. At one point I remember looking a tan overalls! No I’m starting to panic. I look at my watch and it’s 4:20. I’m already 20 minutes late to clock in. I’m getting frantic when suddenly my mom, who died 10 years ago, is right beside me. She is young again, and she looks so happy. I especially remember her clear brown eyes.
The rest of the dream sort of fell apart and I don’t remember if I made it to work or not, but I do remember my mom. I have never seen her in any dreams before. In fact, I usually don’t know the people in my dreams.
Not sure what to make of this dream, but at least I will have a happy memory.
