A Story of Change:
A small group of us spoke with a gorgeous rescue called Cuba at Mzananda, sending him blessings to find the perfect home. He’d been looking to be adopted for 8 months. Within 2 days of the class a young man and his gogo (grandmother) walked in and chose Cuba and a friend.
Cuba now not only has has a caring family, a home, and a canine companion but also a whole crèche of children to love and play with as well. During the communication we all learnt heartfelt lessons about patience and gratitude. These words really stood out for me "good things come to those who wait".
Cuba's story also included a great lesson in taking inspired actions. One of the participants felt she must get him a new colourful collar to match his personality. Synchronicity stepped in and his gifts where on their way to him within 24hours. She didn't know where he was going to go but she believed in good things happening for him. The tag reads “love me and keep calm”. What a powerful message for a dog who then got adopted to be part of a family with a whole township creche of children for him to care for.
As I write this, I meditate on another beautiful layer to his story. When Cuba arrived at the shelter he was very shut down and with the devoted care of the staff and volunteers at Mzananda and the Woof Project he started to shine. Nobody gave up on him. Now he gets to be that for other souls in return.
