The other night I was half falling asleep looking at the digital photo frame and a photo of my dog Noel went by. Some of you remember what happened to her, and the decision I had to make. It still makes me sad beyond words. The kind of sadness that can’t be cured…it can only be masked until you remember it again. I know I did what was right for her and only I could make that decision. My two new fur babies have brought me great joy, but I still carry around some guilt over the loss of my old dog, and probably always will (yes, I know…say no to guilt).
I remembered a post I made last year that inspired a friend to do something wonderful and I decided I needed to do that again. So this month, I am focusing on finding at least one story a week that shows how one person has helped relieve the suffering of another person by showing compassion. There are many ways to do this, so if you know of a story, please feel free to comment. I am going to start with one most of you might have already heard about. Yes, the Mysterious “Secret Santa”. The story is wonderful and brings tears to my eyes every time I read it.
This post is dedicated to Noel. Thanks for always cheering me up. Now it’s my turn to do that for others.
