Today we, as a family, went on our first family trip together. Not that far, haha, only down to south of Sweden. You have to do a test round before you do the long-haul. This weekend we are down in Skåne for a weekend to both see my grandma and grandpa, they are the closest to everything I have. I am so used to going to see them once a month, but since my grandma ended up in a home last summer, and me getting pregnant, it unfortunately has been less. Which I hate. Especially as it’s been such a beautiful year for me. Grandma knew about Oscar before she got sick and he was everything she ever wanted for me. When he was about to become my future boss (so the day he offered me my job) which was like months and months before we fell in love (100% professional. I promise), I called my grandma up and told her about my whole day of interviews, the tests I had to make and about Oscar as a boss and she said. “Take it. Not because of the money or the role but because he is everything I have ever wanted for you. He sees you, the way I see you. And he is going to get you where you want to go.”
and I’ll never forget that. Mostly because she has been the dealbreaker in all my life decisions. But mostly because that was the last huge decision we ever made together. It was like she was handing over the trophy to Oscar. Like she knew, that he was it. Probably didn’t think of him in my future husband kind of way, but that wasn’t the point, she knew he was going to have my back for life, just like she’d always had.
So if I wouldn’t have taken that life changing job and switched continents and left a life in london to move to LA/Stockholm. I would never be here today on this plane with two amazing boys that I adore more than life it myself. With the man of my dreams, soon to be husband, and more importantly, my soon to be the father to my son.
Grandma is the grandest love I have ever felt. She has been my foundation and strength my whole life. And to have her choose Oscar, makes it 100 times more powerful. So really, she is the one I have to thank for this moment.
