Dreams, facts, and do you really want to know?

In watching the current political arguments, reading angry people making rash comments on their social media pages, I have decided that we pretty much believe what we want to believe, regardless of finding out whether the “facts” are true, or not! There’s an old, country song that says, “but I really don’t want to know”. We know the song is a lover talking about their sweetheart and wondering how many arms have held them “oh so tight”, each verse lists a new deed they wished they knew about, but the final answer is always that they really don’t want to know. There are people who will not, who absolutely refuse and will do anything to keep from getting on a scale to see how much they weigh! My question is this, does not knowing change the fact that you have either gained weight or lost it? There are people who throw bills away without opening them so that they “never received” them and don’t want to know how much they owe, does it keep the debtors from coming after them? No it doesn’t.

There have been things I didn’t want to know about but the facts would show up in my dreams and I would know anyway. When the dream is so plain that you can describe the clothes and hairstyle of a person then you are faced with the dilemma of whether you face the one about whom you dreamed with the facts or choose to ignore it, it’s not an easy choice either way.

Before I learned to edit what I said, and let me say that youth is so wasted on the young, I told a person about a dream I had about them and it was not a good thing to have said in front of others! I told a lady I had dreamed that she was pregnant and congratulated her! I noticed she was speechless and red-faced, I felt so embarrassed I just walked away… later on I found that while the pregnancy had been shown to me, the fact that her husband had a vasectomy therefore making the chances that it was his very slim to none had not! OOPS!

Another time I called a young woman and told her that I dreamed she had a baby, I described the baby completely from the sex, the hair and eye color down to seeing the child wearing little high-topped white shoes. I told her that if she didn’t want that dream to come to pass she needed to be very careful. She got so angry with me that she slammed the phone down and left my ears ringing! In a few weeks I got a call from that girl and she told me that she hadn’t known it but she was already pregnant when I had told her the dream. The end of that story is that the child was born and looked exactly as I had told her it would.

The point is that ignorance is not bliss it only puts off the inevitable, and whether it concerns a relationship, your bills, your weight, your salvation, or for whom you vote, what you don’t know can indeed hurt you.

Learn all you can, be prepared, know what you believe, and why you believe it so that when you need to stand up and be counted you will actually know what you are talking about!

Thank you for stopping by for a visit! If you read my thoughts you will see that I am sometimes serious, at other times sappy or funny, occasionally I am sad and sentimental, but I am always sincere! I am a single mother who raised two children, born ten years apart and different sexes so first it was bows and dolls, pretty dresses and boys! When my son was born it was rough and tumble games, baseball, soccer, wrestling and girls! I am known for my "smile" and for my default answer to any situation, "no problem", which was something I didn't realize I did until it was pointed out to me! I am a moon watcher and a star gazer. I am astounded and feel so small knowing that every creature that has ever walked the face of this earth has gazed upon that same beautiful orb that my eyes can behold on any night when the earth is not wearing her cloak of clouds. My parents have made me the person that I am. Their love, veracity in all areas of life, humor and passion for their work and each other have given me hope that my life can actually be a happy one! Chances are if you are reading this you already know all this but again, I appreciate your stopping by! While you're here hit the "Like" button for me and thanks for checking in!
