When I awoke the other morning
there was a glorious
outside my window.....
so I did as all bloggers seem to do.....
and grabbed my camera!
How I wish I had a wider lens so
I could capture the whole!
I loved the double rainbow
that seemed to highlight the local houses
The raindrops on the lens
still don't seem to spoil the picture!
I was thinking of the song from 'The Wizard of Oz'
'Somewhere over the rainbow
Skies are blue
and the dreams that you dare to dream
really do come true'
So many of my 'dreams' have come to a grinding halt
and I find myself afraid to dream
in case they just don't happen..........
in fact, if I'm truly honest, I have spent so much time
in a 'waiting for the next op'
frame of mind
that I don't know what to dream anyway!!
Sorry if this is an uncomfortable post but I wonder how many who read this have had to put their dreams on hold for so long that they can't remember or don't know how to dream again?
I know that I'm afraid to try........
.....I just don't know what to dream
One thing I'm desperate to do is go 200 miles
to see my mother
whom I haven't seen
since her 92nd birthday in August!
I usually try to drive and see her every other month
They have only just allowed me to drive
but only as far as our local town!
There are no easy trains or buses!
I would need some way
where I can stop, get out and move around
I have tossed so many ideas around in my mind.
My daughter said yesterday
that she will try to take me ...... she has a full life
with family and many other committments
so I don't know how she can 'fit it in'!
I used to be driving everywhere and so independent!
This life is so different and difficult!!
Would you say seeing Mum is a dream...?
In fact, now I come to think about it,
what is a dream?
'Someday I'll wish upon a star
and wake up where the clouds are far behind me.
Where troubles melt like lemon drops
away above the chimney tops
That's where you'll find me'
Wouldn't that be a nice place to be?......
