I do not often remember my dreams, but every now and then I have a dream that is so vivid and so powerful that I cannot help but remember. Truth be known, I have had dreams about people who I have not seen in years, only to see them the very next day.
I remember on one occasion, I had a vivid and powerful dream of me looking down upon a baby boy, who was cooing in his crib. I remember I was holding college books in my arms. Most noticably...there was a powerful feeling of love I had for that baby boy...who was my son. It seems the whole dream was about how much I loved this baby boy.
This dream really perplexed me. I told my mother about my dream and she thought it was strange because I never spoke of marriage or having children before. In fact, at the time of the dream I did not even have a girl friend nor was I in college or even thinking about attending. The apartment in this dream was a place I had never seen before, but there was something about it that was vaguely familiar.
Three years later, I remember leaving for college one morning and I stopped by my son's crib to kiss him goodbye. Suddenly, it hit me like a ton of bricks...THIS WAS THE EXACT SCENE I HAD SEEN IN MY DREAM 3 YEARS EARLIER!!! It was the same room...same baby...same everything!!! I was stunned and shaken.
What shook me up so bad is that it occured to me in no uncertain terms, that this was no ordinary dream...it had been a vision of things to come.
