Goodness, I don't even know if this is an "Official" Real Estate Post.....Some of the Realtors will have to fill me in and let me know. Are there in fact openings for these types of things?
Some days the most usual habits bring the most unusual results....and boy, when that happens is it FUN. Today of course is stumbling to turn on the coffee (because I never remember to set that wonderful feature that will have it all ready for me as soon as I wake up), let the dogs outside and quickly check my email. Just for the really important things because goodness knows I can't process much before coffee.
I have on occasion bemoaned the fact that I would not ever likely to see any Grandchildren...as least from an "earthly" plane. My own children are not at all ready to settle down and start families, nor should they be although, theoretically they ARE old enough at 23 and 25. But I do hope it is many years in coming for them.
I have mentioned some wonderful clients from time to time who I have become particularly close to. They have gone so far as to help me with my home and even though I had been there years ago, we have never lost touch and have always maintained contact. In spite of difficulties they have gone through they are some of the most positive and wonderful people I will ever be fortunate enough to meet.
It was several months ago that I heard my client's daughter was "with child." Earlier, perhaps then they may have liked but it happened just the same and they took it as they always take unexpected news---there are higher powers at work. She is SO young to be a Grandmother and as she mentioned it I thought of how ready I was....
And it was agreed, right there, during our phone conversation. Of course she could be a Grandmother but that would still leave an opening for a Feng Shui Grandma-or Feng Shui Godmother. Quite an honor to bestow on me and quite a lot to live up to. I was thrilled and of course thinking she was kidding.
So blurry eyed this morning as I checked my mail I saw the words "Congratulations, You have just become a Feng Shui Grandma."! Or Feng Shui Godmother, apparently that role is open as well. To a "perfect" baby boy and inviting me out to see my very own grandchild. I have to wonder if this holds a bit of Fairy Dust (don't laugh, all good Feng Shui Grandmothers/Godmothers carry these things) and I spent my day thinking about the absolute synchronicity of meeting people. True, valued friends that you become attached to in so many ways it's almost as if you've known them forever.
I am taking my new role seriously and will give the family time before I descend on them....but I have to wonder if I will ever again stumble to my emails and see something that fills me with such JOY. Congratulations to the entire family and bless you for allowing me a part in this!
