Life is all about the little things that make a person feel joyful & passionate and for me that’s spending time with my dogs.
I am that crazy dog lady and I love it!! So when I found out I was going to be a grandma to two granddogs well let’s say my heart was full.
I may have driven my son crazy with a million over excited questions, preparations & asking how are you feeling every 15 seconds but he gets it cause I have been his eccentric mom for all 21 years of his life.
Now my son was expanding his family and I felt so much happiness for him. He never spent a day of his life without a dog by his side so when he moved out I think he missed the dogs the most lol. During the first year of living on his own he wanted a dog but also wanted the right dog for him. He spent endless hours researching dogs and visiting the SPCA waiting. That day had finally arrived!!
It’s a blissful feeling watching my kids begin to create their life. My favourite thing relationships & experiences with people and animals offer is the opportunity to expand our awareness as we discover how to co create in and with different energies and discover the dance of creating and letting go of control. I seen that lesson in myself as I said in my mind a million times “wow Clara you are over parenting just stop” 🤔
So today begins a new opportunity for me to let go even more of all the expectations and worries and let go of even more control and allow him to be the master of his life. I always say my kids are perfect but not in the way most people label perfect. I understand life is messy but that still can be perfect, mistakes happen and it’s still perfect, life ebb and flows with ups and downs yet it’s still perfect to me. Their value and worth is not tied up or attached to anything, they simply are perfect because they exist. My one motto in life has always been “what would love do”. Love holds space for the downs and celebrates the ups and understands one can’t exist without the other. The beautiful thing is that they also feel this same about me and it’s me who is learning to allow myself to be ok making mistakes as i grow and learn my new place. so for today and everyday I will offer the best of me, in my perfect, messy & eccentric package, apologize when I overstep, and move full into my new position of grandma.
