Day and Night

I had a few dreams last night i tried hard to remember this morning. I remember a bit of each and remember clearly that one was of the day and the others during the night. Lets explore what the "time of the day" in your dreams may represent, or what they may have for me.  I can not remember the rest of the dreams as well as i do this first one, which was much like one long parted dream.

The first dream i remember is of me and my friend Jackie driving my truck through a field. The field was Mrs. Classes yard, a field we've traveled through many times in our childhood, and one i feel very close to and at peace when i travel through it. Suddenly we were walking, and as we were traveling back into the field it was day. We passed by 2 boys fishing in the pond and they mentioned to us that we were not suppose to be in the field. We looked back and there was an older man standing by his truck and had a fishing pole. We tried traveling around him and back out of the field. By this time it was dark and we had to climb over a fence to get out. There was an old man there at the fence that took my bike and tossed it over the fence, helping me. I then climbed over and was in a white dress. This entire dream was what seemed to be in the early 1900's. The clothing and the vehicles were of the time frame, beside my truck in the very beginning of the dream. We walked to the peninsula we grew up on and to my friends grandmothers house. In the house there were 2 older men and they were fighting. One man took a staple gun out and starting shooting the other man in the chest. I was VERY frightened during this part of the dream and until i woke up. I grabbed Jackie, who was now an infant and had a staple in  her mouth. I took her and left through the back entrance of the house and had to jump yet another fence. I believe the elderly man was again at this fence and wanted to help me. The dating in the dream at this point was of "normal time" or recent dating.  I jumped the fence and made my way around the block and down to Jackie's house where i put her into her bed, she was a child at this point in the dream. I looked out the window and noticed 2 girls walking with Elijah. They were bringing him down to Jackie's where i was going to keep them safe. I also remember climbing out of a window. This is where i remember waking up and being very frightened. I was  having anxiety/panic attacks even after i awoke and had a hard time falling back to sleep.

*Since the death of Stella, i have not set any real goals. This is the first dream/dreams i have had of the night. Today is the 4 month anniversary of Stella's birth and death. So maybe some reflection? The dream also had Jackie in it. Today is one month since her mother passed.
