i am doing this 'thing' and this thing involves preparing for an upcoming interview. one of the sections is about 'reflection" and one of the questions in the reflection section is...
"according to your family and friends, what is your biggest accomplishment?"
i am pretty sure if my kids were honest they would say my biggest accomplishment was actually getting away with being totally freaking insane...and as far as insight from my lifelong friends..i don't have any any more because i was always too busy messing around with animals to make time for my friends.
so how do i honestly answer this one without looking pathetic and saying the above????...any ideas on what i could say????
i am not saying they would say my biggest accomplishment is saints..cuz saints as it is today was a total freak accident...it just took over and grew the way it wanted to do...kind of like blackberry bushes.
SAINTS is YOUR accomplishment. You started and ran with the idea, and figured out how to bring a diverse group of people together to work for the betterment of the most deserving creatures you could find. You inspire others to do the same, always being honest and not sugar-coating rescue. You keep people thousands of miles away (like me) coming back to a blog to see what's going on in your world, always keeping it real, making us want to come and help and love up those in your care (yep, this is one of my bucket list goals - "Come meet Carol and the SAINTS"). So, just because you have a group of AWESOME employees and volunteers that lend their talents as well doesn't mean it's not your accomplishment - you just were smart enough to find the right group of people to help SAINTS get where it is today, all the while working full-time taking care of humans as well. I think you're amazing!
