Just a Dream

September 1, 2011

Last night I had a dream.

In the dream, I was running with my cousin/friend, Adam.

Why we were running together, I don’t know.

This wasn’t even a normal run. We were running on the tops of buildings. Much like the buildings you would find in a big city. Picture an action scene in a movie where someone is trying to escape by running and jumping over buildings of varying heights.

That’s kind of like what we were doing.

Except we were doing it for fun.

And then along behind us came a man who wanted to run with us. We came to a building where we would have to jump up quite a big higher than where we were. Adam went first and made it. The man running with us went next.

Then it was my turn.

I had no doubt in my mind that I could make it. I was excited for the challenge. But this man reached out his hand to me to offer help and I took it.

It was in that moment that I knew he was something special to me.

He was someone that I was willing to let help me, even though I was capable of doing it myself. Even though I am strong and capable and independent, I was willing to give that part of myself to him.

I woke up hopeful that I will find that someday.

Being single isn’t always bad.

Sometimes it’s nice to dream.
