Saw this quote on by Eleni Gabre-Madhin from Ethiopia: We spend most of our lives cutting down our ambitions because the world has told us to think small. Dreams express what your soul is telling you, so as crazy as your dream might seem—even to you—I don't care: You have to let that out.

My dream has always been to have a close knit loving family but through numerous divorces and miscommunications we are far from that; but I still hold on to that dream-perhaps sometime in the eternities when we look back at this short time we are on earth together, there will be that moment of understanding and unity. What is your dream?

One more thought from Maya Angelou, famous black woman poet: And as Angelou once said, "History, despite its wrenching pain, cannot be unlived, but if faced with courage, need not be lived again."


  1. Oh dear, that's a tough one. I believe in those kind of dreams, I just can't think of one at the moment.

    My daughter dreamed she would become a nurse and she became a very fine nurse.

  2. I've always got a dream brewing...right now my dreams are of writing...

  3. Now, there's a question that reqiures more time for thought than we have in this format.

    This afternoon, I dream of a high energy young mother waking from a peaceful night's slumber tomorrow morning completely free of pain.

    I always dream of three son's with sweethearts to share in their hopes for the future.

    And of course, there is always the recurring dream of an entire hot tub filled with slightly melted, smooth, rich chocolate, a heavy spoon, and me.

  4. I dream of making a living by creating things...stories, paintings, etc. Maybe someday.

  5. That is a very true and worth remembering quote. I do believe my life has surpassed the dreams I had as a child. My dreams were simple so I guess it was easier to realize. My dreams now are for my children and grandchild.

  6. I always wanted a loving family with parents as grandparents etc...But I am lucky for what I do have....
