to create the miracle of becoming the person we were meant to be."
Thanksgiving is a day, that we take time and reflect on what we are Thankful for:
I have been blessed in so many ways & just feel that it proper I say it out loud:)
I am Thankful for: YOU!!!
My friends, animal loving people & artists, so many I know & so many I don't personally know, but who support and believe in my visions.
By paying forward the gifts life has given us, we in turn can give life back.
I am Thankful, you helped me save over 400 dogs this year and approximately 67 cats.
I am Thankful to all my friends, who go above and beyond, you helped me build a shelter:
While it is what I love, at times it can be very challenging.
Seeing bad things that happen to the animals,
who can't defend or care for themselves gets to me.
So the struggle
is constant, to stay focused on what we can do, rather than not.
The contrast make me most appreciative of life at every level!!
It inspires me to continue on, learn more, do more & develop a program that will become a standard sometime in the future, that will teach others, how to do what I do & save more lives.
Yes, a book in the works:)
I am very Thankful for Jeff!!
He is the BEST dog/puppy socializer in the world. He does wonders for the shy, scared & terrified.
Due to his medical conditions he is very limited to how much he can do, so time is on his side.
Thru it all he battles his conditions & does all he can do for the critters.
He gives them love... As the saying goes Love Conquers all!!
Truly he has one of the most important jobs in rescue.
ALL of us here are Thankful for Terry!!
He is a very humble and quiet man who loves the animals...
While he doesn't like me snapping pictures, I think it's important to honor those who help us.
He is the manpower & muscle behind A Place To Bark. Here everyday, rain or shine.
Without his help, I could not care for as many as we do.
We value his friendship, dedication and love for all the dogs.
I am Thankful for this year & the many past years of saving the lives & finding homes for the animals that come into my rescue..
I have learned so much, it has changed me to be a better person and my hope is to inspire others to join in our fight to save lives.
More times than not, it gets very scary financially, but I believe in the greater good!!
Hope leads me, Faith guides me & I Believe we can make a difference....
I am Thankful for my family, both human & furry..
And most of all I am Thankful to be ALIVE today & everyday!!!
& again I am Thankful for YOU!!!
God's Blessings be with you all...
