I dreamt last night that I walked into my laundry room and about two inches of water was on the floor (I recall thinking "this has to be about two inches of water"). I called to my husband, who was in the recliner in the family room watching tv, that the laundry room was flooded. He asked me about it but never got up to help (which irl would never happen!). I grabbed towels and tried mopping up the mess, but I realized the wood flooring was damaged. The boards stuck up, warped and in a couple of places the imprint of a bootheel deeply marred the water-softened wood. I remember thinking, "this floor is completely ruined and I don't have the finances to replace it."
We, my brothers and I, are dealing with my mother's mental illness. It came to a head last week and we had to have her committed for evaluation. We have to meet tomorrow with her therapist to discuss treatment options. And, for some reason, I have become the "go-between"....the hospital calls me for everything, and then I have to relay the messages to my brothers, on top of caring for my elderly father, who has been ill this past week. Yeah, things DO feel like they are flooding in on me! As for the inquiring, but not helping that cannot be my brothers, as they have been as involved in this process as I (even in caring for our father). BUT it could be a lot of my elderly aunts, who have been calling almost daily, worrried about my mom, my dad and our family in general.

If the dream applies to what you've shared, then I was thinking that this portion may be about praying for you, as you didn't have what you would need in the dream. It could be about a tangible need as well. I'll pray for you, just in case.
THANK YOU!! You may be right as my husband's hours at work have been cut. I wondered if the damage to the floor could mean the damage of my mother's mental illness. It does seem as if she has little chance, without a miracle of God, for recovery. We have already been told that meds do not "fix" this one, only therapy. And being open to meeting with a therapist seems pretty impossible where she is concerned.
So apparently this was a LITERAL dream!! I went to do laundry this morning and there was water standing under the washing machine, all over the wood floor. And my husband is at work, so I had to text him about it. Putting towels down, I thought, "and I don't have the money to replace this floor'.....so why does God give us literal dreams??

I'm sorry to hear that this dream was literal!
There's a few reasons why God would give us literal dreams. For one, it's another way to invite us to seek him. It's also to comfort us! For me, literal dreams are a powerful reminder that the One who knows all things knew that this event was going to happen, that He is with me while it happens, and that He is my means of handling it. He is your supply, Exo!
I'm praying that He shows Himself as your Supplier during this...
