I have a Jack russell terrier and feel a bond with him that is very strong, Im sure he would like me to say thank you on behalf of the canine
fellowship for such care and real interest you have shown this little needing soul.
Awww Please let him know he's very welcome by giving him a big ol kiss on the snout
I know what you mean about the small seemingly insignificant actions that make the world a better place, i catch moths in the house before the cat
gets them and turns them into playthings that causes a no doubt miserable and painful last few moments for them. I have even picked up earth worms
from a pathway and put them back onto the grass lest they get trampled by unthinking less thoughtful souls going about their day. One of the worst
feelings is that caused by the sound of a snail shell crunching under your foot on a dark pathway at night, do you know what i mean?.
I so know what you mean. I don't like to see anything in pain. Science has proven that even a plant feels pain, so why should you not care about a
moth if you don't "have" to see them in pain. I think that's noble.
I hope i dont offend you by asking this question but did you become more caring after the accident that took your daughter or have you always offered
the same level of care and love for needy souls?.
I've always tried to help where I've seen pain, but I do think since she's gone I've expanded my ideas on how much I could help and how often. My
little girl loved animals and so at the point I may have given up before, now I'll stay in the fight that much longer - for her, if you know what I
I was not a good person when i was younger but after a lot of soul searching brought on by a combination of growing up and being homeless for about
four years on and off now i can say i truly really care what happens to everything and everyone.
What a beautiful thing to be able to say. You learned a lot from a very rough time in your life, it wasn't wasted on self pity and hate.
Not being able to make a difference to many things because they are way out of reach is my biggest regret with life, i hope that the little things we
do sometimes get seen by others for what they are and in turn inspire others to do a little something where its needed when they can.
Every life, every breath is important. Everyone animal and human alike feels pain both physical and emotional and every life is connected to ours
somehow, like a ripple in the water. Don't regret not being able to make a difference on a grand scale because every day a person with a soul like
yours causes the ripple that makes the wave. You just can't see it because it happens so far away.
And then maybe some will go the extra step just like you did and turn around and go out of your way to do something that meant a whole lot to a
sentient feeling little soul when it really needed it. That's REALLY beautiful.
Thank you for your post Lee. It was truly inspirational.
