Life is so much easier when you trust your intuition, and trust that no one is ever gone. This was the start of using that inner knowing and making the changes that I needed to make. No more waiting for the right time, questioning everything like finances, will the girls be ok with our decisions, etc, etc, etc…..
The first thing we did was buy the block of land that we had our eye on in the beautiful coastal town of Torquay. This is where I always wanted to live but kept putting it off, and like most people do, kept saying “that will be my dream one day”, one day I’ll get there….
Things can change at a drop of a hat and I was no longer going to wait or put things off, I was charging ahead….
Now that we had our perfect block, we needed to sell our house.
It wasn’t a great time for selling and our real estate agent said we wouldn’t get our asking price. I of course didn’t agree. Within a few weeks we had an offer and were advised to take it… Ahhh No!!!! I was sticking with my price, as my intuition was strong and clear. The next week we got the price we wanted. When things are meant to be they just are, and everything starts to move at such an amazing pace… We were on the right track. Everything came easily and everything fell into place… Don’t get me wrong we did have a few hiccups along the way while building our dream house but nothing major. The design of our house was made for the two girls down stairs and our retreat upstairs….
Ohhh so we thought, the universe had other plans! There was still one more piece of the our puzzle that was missing…
As we finished our build and the girls settled nicely into a new school and made new friends my husband said… “We should have another baby to bless our house”. My response was quite quick… “Are you F…..en mad, no way”…. And any way, the way we designed our house really didn’t have room for another baby… also why would we go down that road again when the girls were 11 & 5 years of age and life was so much easier… I’d be nuts to do it again…
Shortly after this declaration by my husband, I dreamt that I was hanging out clothes and there was a little boy running around in the long grass out the back with my husband chasing him, they were having so much fun… I told my husband about the dream and he just laughed and said never say never.
As I’ve said many times before the universe will make things happen when it’s for your highest good….
So yep, somehow I fell pregnant!!! Number three was on its way…. I knew it was a boy because of the dream I’d had. My husband didn’t want to hear it; he said he would believe it when he saw it…. We had all the scans & at our last one I asked if they could tell us if it was boy or girl… The nurse said clearly ‘it’s a boy’… but my husband still didn’t believe it. My mum always said that she would love to see me have a boy… Well it was happening, I was having a boy…. OMG…. This pregnancy went so smoothly; I knew I was once again being looked after from above. My due date was the 12th August 1998, but I went 3 days over and Joseph Michael Fopiani was born on the 15th August 1998. My husband was so overjoyed, he still couldn’t believe it, it was an amazing moment. I wasn’t prepared for what happened next… a close friend of the family came to visit us and said…. ‘ “How wonderful for Joseph to be born on your mothers Saint Day”….. My mouth just dropped open… You see my mum is from Spain where your saint name day is celebrated more than the your birth day!!! I just cried, happy tears as this was a miracle for me. Putting beyond reasonable doubt that she was right there, and she would always be there, for my children and me…. Forever, to the moon, to the stars and back….
Love you Mum, and thankyou for my gifts….
When its meant to be it just is… grab life with both hands and live it to it’s fullest…. The universe has your back….. remember to smile :)
