When a grandmother went to put her grandson to bed one night, he noticed a spider was quietly spinning a web in the corner of his room. He stomped over to the spider, picked up a shoe, and went to hit it. The grandmother stopped him and calmly explained, "we do not destroy life, we cherish it." The spider thanked the grandmother for saving her life. She said to her, "In return for saving my life, I will show you how to weave a web that you can hang above the children's beds. The web will snare bad dreams and only let good dreams through the small hole. In the morning when the sunlight hits the web, all of the bad dreams will be destroyed. This is my gift to you. Use it so that only good dreams will be remembered. "Sleep well, sweet child, don't you worry your head. Your Dream Catcher is humming above your bed."
