well...it looks like we made it thru another year.
Carol · Dec. 31, 2013
there were a helluvalotta days that pretty much sucked.
whatever...no one ever said rescue was exactly fun so I guess all in all it was what it was and that is just the way that it is.
still on this very last night of the year, the saints animals are all safely tucked in. no one is hungry, no one is cold, no one suffers pain or unbearable loneliness...everyone tonight is ok.
and despite a royal crappola year, at the very end of it all.... I am ok too.
can't ask for more than that...at least not in rescue.
today on the last day of the year..the bills are all paid, the shelves and bins are all stocked..i even bought new flashlights and batteries for each building and ann told me a single donation came in this morning's mail of $10,000.00 from a very generous and kind hearted woman. wow, I am stunned...that's a really nice safety cushion to start off 2014!
it was a crappy year in many respects, but it was a wonderful year too. so many kind and selfless people, so many amazing animals, so many challenges that we did overcome.
what's that old saying? whatever doesn't kill you will make you stronger..well we should be pretty damn strong for this next years go around.
I wish each and everyone who feels connected to saints, near or far away..the very best of all happiest new years. may 2014 bring us all peace, happiness, purposeful fulfillment and the strength to meet the days that do not go all that great.
Happy New Year...I am hoping those bed hogs will let me have enough space on my bed for this last and soon, very first day of the year...if not..i will survive, there is always the couch again...I am blessed.
