As the narrator wrapped up the story he made the comment, "perhaps some things are beyond the power of nature; perhaps they can only be achieved by the power of love." And it seems true, doesn't it? Think of all the crazy stories you have heard about a person lifting a car to save someone or being able to hold onto their child during a tornado and both landing relatively scratch free down the street. Love does that.
Love is the force that gets us up however many times it takes during the night to comfort our child back to sleep. Love is what helps us care for a loved one that is nearing the end of their life, even when we are exhausted. Love is the power that gives us the strength we never knew we had. And love is the feeling of knowing we are supported when we feel ready to drop to our knees. Love is all around us even in those dark moments we cannot feel it. It is there and it is strong.
I'm grateful for such a beautiful and inspiring dream. I'm grateful for such a good parting message as I woke to start a new week. I'm grateful to know the power of love and have seen some of its miracles first hand. I'm grateful for stories of love and the strength it gives. I'm grateful for the way the mind can relay these beautiful stories in my sleep. I'm grateful to know that it is a possibility to have it made into a movie if I take the time to submit it. And I'm grateful that, at least in my dream, Morgan Freeman was narrator because he has such a comforting voice.
What brings you inspiration? What helps you feel the power of love? Do you feel supported?
May today allow us to feel all the loving support around us. May we find a way to make a positive difference in the world today. And may we be inspired by the beauty around us. Have a beautiful day!
