Visitor publish by Siena Lee-Tajiri

A lot can occur in 7 days. After our supply was declined on the primary home we noticed, our supply on the second home we noticed was accepted! Final month I shared how Spirit has a larger vantage level than we do, so when issues don’t appear to work out as we hoped, there have to be one thing larger in retailer for us.

“All this or larger but nonetheless”

“All this” (what we at the moment hope and dream) or “larger but nonetheless” (the higher dream that Spirit has for us). For those who missed final month’s publish, Dreaming a Larger Dream, yow will discover it right here.

The Larger Dream

With your entire kindness and loving power, I did obtain the “larger but nonetheless.”

  • As an alternative of a craftsman artwork deco, I acquired a ranch farm home.
  • As an alternative of fully reworked, I acquired partially reworked which supplies me the chance to make a few of my very own selections.
  • As an alternative of Pauline Starke (a glamorous silent movie star within the 20’s), I acquired June Cleaver (everybody’s mother from Depart it to Beaver!)
  • As an alternative of being proper within the busyness of town, I acquired being quiet and tucked away on a hill.
  • As an alternative of a 20 minute drive to the forest, I acquired an 8 minute stroll to 1.

This actually is the larger dream for me. I come from a household of renters, which implies we moved quite a bit. This was regular for me and later as an grownup, I continued to hire and transfer, hire and transfer. Actually, the transfer to this house would be the twenty second transfer in my life. (!) Let me make clear that I don’t really feel there’s something mistaken with renting and for a lot of, this actually is the perfect and healthiest possibility. However for me, after transferring a lot in my life, proudly owning meant I might by no means have to maneuver once more until I wished to. And as an animal lover, the last word bonus is not any extra sneaking in cats or rounding down the precise quantity. I additionally get to construct that catio, and I lastly get to undertake as many as I can responsibly look after.



I used to be raised by my grandparents in a busy, bustling household with prolonged household round on a regular basis. Regardless of coming from such a big household, I by no means actually felt like I belonged. So though I by no means prioritized proudly owning a house, I dreamed of the sensation I all the time thought a house would convey: a way of belonging. No extra floating round, I can lastly root. I can create and nurture an area that I can share with others and all the time have area for family members in the event that they’re ever misplaced or with no place to remain. This, too, has all the time been a part of the dream: a secure area for all (animals included!) that claims, “You Belong.”


Bear’s Larger Dream

Let me point out the higher advantages for Bear too. As a result of this house is raised up from the road, after I take Bear exterior on his harness, he gained’t be as startled by neighbors strolling their pets on the road degree. I’ve additionally persistently seen an abundance of candy squirrels which have made their house in a number of of the timber within the yard. So Bear could have his built-in Cat TV from any one of many foremost ground home windows. And naturally, there’s an abundance of choices for a catio.

I respect your messages on the final weblog. I do imagine that every one your well-wishes helped transfer my dream up. I’ve been telling Bear, “Guess what? I purchased you a home!” It brings me great pleasure telling him that, realizing he’ll be assembly squirrels, getting secure day by day walks exterior, and having fun with sunshine and contemporary air in his catio.

And now that I’ve obtained the home, for me, all I would like is Bear as a result of actually, house is the place my cat is.
