Mi Casa Nueva!

Mi Casa Nueva!

 
 

To all my fans.  It’s me, Clarence the dog and I wanted to send out an update on my new crib.  To be honest, I think I’ve died and gone to heaven.  Last week, my family found me a new place to live out my retirement years and I love it.  I adopted a new friend, Kelly, who has lovingly welcomed me into her heart and home.  She loves doting on me with lots of hugs and special treats.  I feel like royalty here.
 
 
 
 
These are my new amigos, Moose and Boogie.  They love to hang with me as we cuddle by the fire for a group hug. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
And here is Ginger and Skipper.  They like to sleep and relax, just like me.

Here I am getting a nice back massage.  Oh, the dog spa is wonderful.

 

I do miss my family when I think of them, but each day I grow closer to my new “mom” and she’s wonderful.  I must admit it’s a lot warmer here cuddled up by the fire than being chased by bears in freezing Alaska.  I want to personally thank Kelly for taking me under her wing and making me feel a part of her family.  I am so blessed!

With my love,

Clarence

Letting Go

Letting Go

 

We recently started the huge task of downsizing (where did all this stuff come from?!), and the reality of the monumental changes ahead has instigated a few tearful conversations between God and me.  A couple weeks ago I woke up in the middle of the night and in my half-asleep state I told God that this journey just wasn’t what I was expecting.  Suddenly, I heard a voice say, “BINGO!”
What?! What does that mean?  And then God, in his oh-so-gentle way, explained, “Audrey, this journey has never been about YOUR expectations–it’s about MINE!  And my expectations are so much bigger and better than yours.  So if you’re ready to let go of your expectations, we can get on with what I have planned instead of what YOU expect.”  Ouch. Ok God, I get it.  Please help me live it.
