D is for Dream

Do dogs dream?

“The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams.” –Oprah Winfrey

I often wonder if the adventures our dog, Ari, takes in her dreams live up to her real life. She’s had many adventures, more often than not stumbling into them. She refuses to share them with us so we can only imagine where she goes and what she does.

Peace and love,

“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you’ve imagined.” – Henry David Thoreau

My oldest son dreamed of becoming a firefighter when he grew up. And he did.

Learning did not come easy to him and he worked hard to earn each and every good grade he received. When he hit his teen years, things got rocky, as they sometimes do with teenagers. I worried. He tested boundaries. We made it through.

And a week after he graduated from high school, he began the EMT program. After working as an EMT  for a few years, he got into the Paramedic program and became a certified paramedic. With his end goal in sight, he was trained in the fire academy and was hired as a firefighter-paramedic just two years ago. He continues to study and added Engineer to his certifications.

He had a dream, he worked his butt off to achieve it, and I am in awe of him. He is an inspiration to anyone who thinks that their dreams are beyond their reach and I couldn’t be prouder of him.
