A whole new worldPublished 2:12pm Friday, September 27, 2013
Down on one knee as each inspects me and won’t leave till they get one on one attention and acknowledgement. Snickers joined the team as if he was always part of the family, thanks to the wonderful job Richard and Jackie always do with my kids.
Outside I watched as he romped and played with other dogs and whatever toy was available. Every few minutes he would come over to visit me or Jackie to give us some kisses and to make sure we were watching how much fun he was having. The whole scenario filled me with emotions as I fought hard to hold back tears.
Those of you who have been on this emotional roller coaster with me for years, and those new on board, I want you to imagine this: watching one of my kids, my precious babies, come out of a life of despair and enter a whole new world. I merely tell their stories, it is you, all of you, which make it possible and believe me, it doesn’t get better than this.
Bless you, thank you and thanks for listening.
