This morning I woke from a dream that I had gone to the doctor. While there the doctor told me that my last two eggs were ready. One egg was cracked and misshapen but the doctor reassured me this was because it was ready to hatch. We put it in warm water and out "hatched" an eight month old little girl with brown hair. Then the doctor put the other egg in the warm water and it hatched into a two month old little blonde boy that looked a lot my youngest daughter. The doctor said congratulations and people showed up with odd gifts like a hover car for kids and barbecue.
As I said, I will have a lot of fun when I get a chance to sit down and dissect all the elements of that dream!
In the meantime my preschooler keeps telling me today that she wants to be a grandma, but not just any grandma; she wants to be a farmor. Farmor is Swedish for father's mother. She has a farmor who is very dear to her so it only makes sense that she would want to be one. But she wants to be one right now.
I suppose if children can hatch out of eggs at various stages of infancy and if hover cars are an approved baby shower gift then it could be completely plausible that a preschooler could be a farmor. Isn't the land of imagination and subconscious messages so interesting?
I'm grateful to find humor in the messages today. I'm grateful to see some obvious symbolism and inner thoughts manifesting in the dreams and conversations. I'm grateful for my mother-in-law that is such a great farmor to my daughters. I'm grateful to think that someday I could get to be a grandma. I'm grateful to be right here in this place with my two girls and my life. I'm grateful to see my daughter's love through her words as she expresses her wishes.
What strange dreams or messages have you been receiving? Have you taken the time to sit and translate it? Who is special in your life? Have you told them lately?
There is something so beautiful and special both in babies and in grandmas. They possess a special power to love even more deeply, I think.
May today remind us who is important in our lives. May we recognize the little messages we receive and take the time to sit with them. Have a beautiful day!
