A week ago, my alarm woke me in the middle of one of the most vivid dreams I’ve had in a long time. It was brief but so real. I was on a train. Hubby and my brother were there. My brother was introducing us to his girlfriend. We were talking and hugging, and I was so excited to finally meet her.
Then I realized we were in the Philippines. I don’t recall what we were talking about. The train was running along side the water and everything was very bright.
Then the door opened and an old friend/former coworker walked in. He was as shocked to see us as we were to see him. We hugged and asked each other what we were doing there. He was there for work, naturally (which is silly because his new job requires very little travel).
Then my alarm went off, and it was over.
It was very easy for me to place why I had this particular dream. I had woken up in the middle of the night with back pain and moved to the couch so I wouldn’t disturb Hubby. While I was stretching my back to make the pain go away, I’d noticed that I’d received some new pictures of my brother and his girlfriend. Was is actually in the Philippines at the time meeting her in person for the first time. I must have fallen asleep thinking of the two of them in her brightly lit home and in my dream joined them.
