Well, at least in my dream, that is.
I don't remember all of the details of the dream, but I was definitely breastfeeding a baby girl. I don't remember anything distinguishable about her, and I admit that I think she may have been more like a "doll" than a "baby", but she was definitely our Baby Girl. Of course, there were some problems with the dream. For one, I apparently fed her three times in a row from the left side, rather than switching over to the right side. And of more concern, I kept misplacing her on the coffee table, and I think she even got covered up with papers and such at one point. But dreams are weird, and I'm not reading too much into it. Ultimately, it was sweet to dream about her again.
It sure beats the other dreams I had last night involving advising students (but that's what I get for working from home on a Sunday evening until 9:00 pm). Yes, classes started today, and I'm in for a busy busy week! I survived today, and even responded to all of the student emails in my inbox by the time I left...but I brought home my laptop to work from home again tonight (I'd rather kick my feet up in front of the tv and answer emails from home, than go in tomorrow morning to realize that I had received 50 new emails over night). I would, however, totally appreciate your prayers throughout the rest of the week. It's bound to be busy, and I'm really trying not to stress out.
Today's blessing was the chance to see some of my amazing students again. Yes, their arrival means more emails and more work for me, but really--that's what I'm here for. I really do have some amazing students--especially those in my leadership group, and it really is a blessing to connect with them again.
