crazy abundance dreams

So since I've been pregnant, I've had a recurring dream type that's really fun but is a little embarrassing. They're abundance dreams and the only thing that happens over and over is that I aquire a whole heaping lot of material things and have lots of friends (some from the distant past- like high school, and others from the present). I've been given truck loads full of furniture, clothes, toys, and on and on, and people really want me to have stuff, I'm not even trying. It's embarrassing because it's all mine and everybody loves me. But in the dreams I'm not feeling greedy or desirous of having things, the dreams just start with me getting all these things and I'm so happy and just sort of skip through the whole experience enjoying myself. Last night I had a whole parade of people come to a potluck and file past me saying loving things to me and then I opened a restaurant with a bunch of friends but I didn't have to do very much (maybe I had done the cooking previously, but not in this dream) but just enjoy it and smile at people. Then I was sitting around with the kitchen crew (with an ENORMOUS amount of food sitting out in those big metal food containers, covering every horizontal surface) and they had all just adopted a bunch of dogs that kept growing in number the more I looked around, and one of them ended up being a little girl they had adopted, but of course, she loved me the best. And as I left, I saw that one of my friends had decorated the front of the restaurant with shelves and shelves jam-packed with funky old instruments and memorabilia, some of it Baha'i stuff, some souveneirs from traveling around the world.

So that's a sample of the stuff and popularity I get in my pregnant dreams. I was talking it over with some people at game night and it reminded me that my favorite name for a girl is Theresa (I even named my first car Theresa, a beautiful hulking 1972 Pontiac Phoenix that Grandma Moutrie gave me) and Theresa means 'reaper', you know like a harvester, which is exactly what keeps happening in these dreams- I just keep harvesting and harvesting. Seems like an auspicious beginning for a person, so small still but attracting so many blessings in my dreams.

I've heard of pregnant women often dreaming of food in great abundance and dreaming that they're eating their favorite things. But this is wonderfully different -- a sign of all the blessings to come.
