Mama and the four-legged family moved to new digs this weekend. Change of place with flowing space. Change of attitude with abundance of gratitude. It’s all good. Pawsome, in fact!
Our old home was a good spot to transition, but it was time to move on and expand. We were getting pretty crowded in our small, historic house in old town Folsom and mama was feeling the walls closing in. A larger home was needed.
Mama is feeling free. Our new house has good flow — roomy, airy and bright. In spirit, I’m inhabiting this new abode with mama. Wilbur, Timmy E and Bella. They feel my presence and my excitement for this new chapter.
It’s time for a change. Not just a new home but a change in the freedom to be who we are. We’re certainly not a cookie-cuter family (2 dogs, 1 cat, mama and a furry angel) and we needed something that suited us.
A spacious living room with French doors creates an open and inviting place to chillax with comfort. The room exudes even more peacefulness since mama hung her O.F.’s (original Franziskas‘ – FOA and amazing artist!) Mama has a big office, there’s plenty of storage space and we now have a guest bedroom. We’re so excited to have the space to entertain friends and family. And we are a pet-friendly accommodation, if you’d like to stay for a few days.
This move comes at the perfect moment. Actually, every moment is perfection if we have a certain pawspective. Every encounter, every circumstance is a moment to relish; to learn and grow. The situation with Timmy E’s hospitalization is cause for paws. Close relationships (especially family relationships) are complicated and sometimes tangled. It’s good to take a step back and reevaluate from time to time.
Mama has learned that she needs to be clearer in speaking her mind and her wishes. That’s a good lesson to learn for any human! Authenticity and truthfulness at a soul level is what we all strive for and mama is grateful for the lessons learned. We were all justifiably peeved at what happened to Timmy, but we’re passed that.
Forgiveness is easier when we realize that everyone is doing their best. It may not be what we want or need or agree with, but everyone’s on their own journey, at their own pace.
Walk your life’s journey with wagginess and an open heart to receive lessons. Life is joyous with a furry angel’s outlook.
