New Age Spirituality – Morning Has Been All Night Coming ( Part 73 )
In the middle of trying to put the pieces together, there was a banging on my bedroom door and, as they sometimes do, Malika and Jonathan rushed in. “Hi, Daddy!” Shouted Jonathan. “We thought you were sleeping,” said Malika. “But when we heard the phone, we knew you had to be awake.” “Hi kids,” I said. “Is everything OK?” They must have seen the confusion on my face as I sat there.
Malika replied, “Yes, of course. What’s the matter, Daddy?” “Nothing. Did you and Jonathan have a good time last evening? You didn’t give the baby-sitter a rough time, I hope.” “Baby-sitter?” She asked. “What baby-sitter?” “The one who took care of you last night,” I said.
“What do you think I’m talking about?” “We didn’t have a baby-sitter last night, Daddy. Are you sure you’re OK?” “Maybe you were sleeping and the phone woke you up in the middle of a dream,” said Jonathan. I looked at them curiously and then said, “Yes, I must have been dreaming. It seemed so real.” “Tell us about your dream, Daddy,” said Malika. Not wanting to say much, I replied, “It was something about going out to dinner with friends and leaving you and Jonathan with a sitter. That’s how dreams are sometimes. They seem so real.” .
