FOREVER YOUNG/unpredictable dreams

Dreams are so unpredictable. Sometimes they take me on a ride to never never land,  full of fun and adventure, and I don't want to wake up from it, and when I do, I try to go back to sleep and re-capture what I lost, but too late, the dream disappeared forever, and now I'm left wondering what would have happened, if only I  didn't wake up at that moment.. oh well.....

And sometimes when I have a bad dream, I want to wake up, but can't because I'm being pulled deeper and deeper into the tunnel of the unknown, and then I'm trying to find my way out, but the dream won't release its grip on me.

Now that's the dream I want to wake up from.

Yes, the mystery of dreams leave many questions unanswered, but I will keep searching, because for me they will always be


FOREVER YOUNG/mom's dr, appt.

Yesterday was pretty hectic.  Had to take my mom to the Heart Specialist. She's fine, but of course  as a precaution, the doctor wants her to take some tests.

The doctor thought my mom was much younger then 87.  I know this made her day. Who doesn't want to look young.

So in two weeks, we'll be going back to take the required tests, minus one, a stress test. She's had enough stress to last a lifetime.

As we left the doctor's office, I had mixed emotions. Happy that her condition wasn't serious, but still have questions to be answered, and I won't know anything until the tests results are reviewed.

I'm so fortunate and blessed to still have my mother.  She's full of energy, and has the determination and passion to survive. And I like to think, I inherited that from her.

So even though it was a very trying and emotional day, it ended on a good note. And because you only have one mother, one time around..

And that why my mom will always be FOREVER YOUNG
