Dreams -attempt 2

Or should that be attempt 3, as I actually started on this earlier this morning, but then went for a sleep instead. Anyway some musings. (erm now attempt 4 as it is a new day as this post never got finished, my musings are obviously quite disjointed)

This was kind of inspiried by my Dad preaching at church on Sunday morning, he was talking about having dreams and preparing for them, not just sitting about waiting for them to happen, but making them happen. About stretching yourself so that when dreams become reality you are in a place to fulfil them.

I don't know entirely what the point of this post is but bear with me. I think dreams are so important to all of us. I think if we don't have any at all we just stagnate in ourselves. They may be big dreams, small dreams, life changing dreams, world changing dreams but unless we have dreams and do anything about them what's the point? Ok we may not fulfill all of our dreams, some of them may be for the future rather then now, some of them may just be silly things, but without them what motivates us?

One of the quotes my Dad used was by Christopher Reeve

“So many of our dreams at first seem Impossible, then they seem Improbable, and then when we Summon the Will, they soon become Inevitable.”

This then prompted me to have a bit of a search for other quotes about dreams.

“There are some people who live in a dream world, and there are some who face reality; and then there are those who turn one into the other.”
What a great quote, wouldn't you just love to be one of those people?!

“You block your dream when you allow your fear to grow bigger than your faith.”
Ok so this quote was from some dodgy woman who fraudulently took lots of money in a dodgy church of some description. The point is I liked the quote though and I think it speaks a lots of sense and truth.

Gets me onto thinking about my own dreams. At the moment a lot of them focus on this baby, that he grows up feeling loved and happy and healthy, I guess the things that most people dream for their children. Beyond that most of my dreams seem to revolve around children in one way or another. The main dream to adopt a sibling group, a possible dream to become a children's social worker, and I guess my continuing hope to make a difference in some way.

Hmm the post is now taking a while too long to actually get posted and I'm not entirely sure where it is headed, so I will leave you with those thoughts and with a couple of recent knitting photos. I shall hopefully provide an updated bump shot soon, but I'm waiting for one of those moments when he really stretches out so you can really see what have a bicornuate uterus sometimes looks like!
