make believe

Carol  ·  Sep. 9, 2013

there is a difference between make believe and fantasy.

some days I do have to make myself believe that what I do has purpose. small inconsequential things and tasks that can add up to something worthwhile.

bru woke me up at 530, crying. I got up and since odie was asleep in the entranceway I shut him in there and let bru come down and wander around in the kitchen. he wandered for a bit and then curled up on a bed and is sleeping again.
since I was up, I checked on chance and he needed a quickie bed change. now the laundry basket was full so I threw in a load to get a head start on the laundry today.

one simple act of getting out of bed, gave 2 small dogs some comfort. getting up early was worth it.

lance is sleeping outside with mystic on one of the dog beds...he can have another hour or so of free choosing his own comfortable place.

I am never going to be a rocket scientist, I am never going to have all of the answers and I can't fix every life's problems but I can find simple things to do every day that makes a positive difference in someone's life.

I make myself believe this.

Carol, everything you do makes a huge difference in the animals' lives - Lance, Mystic, June, Odie, Gideon, and the list goes on and on - if you could only see yourself through their eyes!

Thanks so much, Carol for sending such a lovely photo of your beautiful daughter, Jenn and her handsome husband on their wedding day. They both look so happy together. Please give them all my best wishes for a wonderful and happy future together.

Also I would like to sincerely thank you for letting my dogs stay at Saints and I really appreciate the excellent care that you and your wonderful staff gave them.

They had a great time and loved all the attention they received. I think last night they were quite bored with only me !!!!

Thanks again, Carol to you and to everyone at Saints.

Johanna and the Chi Quartet.
