My sister wrote this after seeing this video posted on Facebook by a friend. I wanted to share it because everything she says here is true.
This video literally made my day…(by Melanie Jacob)
As I sat at my kitchen table studying, doing homework, really tired, just dying to go to bed, this almost made me cry like the biggest baby ever! But they were happy tears, and a smile I really needed as I was beginning to feel very exhausted from this week.
I hope to one day change lives for the better for Gods’ beautiful creations, to give them second chances at life, and to protect their delicate souls to live a life with happiness and no fear. I want to be a voice for something that has the most caring heart and soul known to man, and to keep them healthy. It is the very LEAST I can do considering they have always loved me and/or their own family members UNCONDITIONALLY.
Without question, something that has the POWER to love you THAT much, something that has the WILL to trust you are coming back home after your long day, just so they can be the first to greet you and make you smile, something that has just enough STRENGTH and HOPE after being abused, abandoned and left unloved after doing nothing wrong but loving the person/family they were once with, and be able to be one of the lucky few to find a new family who will truly love them more than anyone has before, just so that they can be able to do the same as they once did. THAT right there is something to celebrate and to recognize EVERYDAY. Nothing else that I have ever known has been more pure and true than that. I speak for all pets.
They ALL have feelings just like you and me.
Remember, the fact that something that isn’t human is somehow able to make you understand them, understand you most importantly… That is what I call something SPECIAL and truly incredible.
This firefighter is a hero to me. He has rescued people and I am sure a few dogs, and cats stuck in trees. But to pick up a helpless kitten, that anyone else would say is dead and leave it, he took 15 min to revive it. That is a person with an amazing heart and soul, who is reaching out to help something he knows deserves a long, happy life filled with love, while also knowing what he does, may not work. This is truly a miracle and I am so happy I saw this.
Stuff like this inspires me every day to work as hard as I can, so that one day I will save multiple animals’ lives. They are the reason I live the life I do right now. I want to save the lives, that save human lives, just by offering their genuinely unconditional love and friendship.
Something is truly special when they can leave an imprint of their paw on YOUR heart, forever.
Don’t take God’s most amazing, and most beautifully created, personal therapists for granted. Because they KNOW and UNDERSTAND much, much more than you actually realize…..
