Waking with lingering impressions of a particularly clear and poignant dream. In it, travelling with the trailer, just as we currently are. However, in this scenario, stopping en route for a short layover at our cabin. Running into one of Michael's friends who actually lives in that area. Asking me if he and a buddy could spend the night with us, in our cottage. Explaining that it is a little too hectic at his family's home right now. Replying, "Of course, anytime." Sensing this young man's compassionate nature, while receiving his big bear hug from behind. He wanting to know how I was doing. Assuring him that I was well, and thanking him for inquiring. A short time later, all of us relaxing around the fire outdoors. Soon after, his sister unexpectedly stopping by with a gift. Extending her hand, and offering me a ring. Mentioning that when first spotting it, she had instantly known it was meant for me. A perfect, round stone, mounted upon a smooth gold band. Somewhat pearl-like in appearance. Its lower half, slate grey in colour. The upper portion, glowing brilliant white. Immediately understanding the powerful symbolism. Even with, or possibly due to, underlying darkness, there exists in life an equal measure of beauty and light. This dream casting divine illumination on the day ahead.
