Your Turn will Come

Dog at animal shelter

Lots of people talk to animals…. Not very many listen, though…. That’s the problem.

Benjamin Hoff, The Tao of Pooh

When I tell people I volunteer at the local animal shelter I hear the response,

“Oh, I couldn’t do that, it would make me sad.”

I understand.

It can be sad, sad to see the homeless, helpless dogs patiently waiting for a chance, their chance for a life outside the kennel.

I volunteer. I walk the dogs, I talk to them. I look into their eyes and tell them that their turn is coming.

Their chance.

Until then, I do what I can to make their wait a bit more tolerable.

And if I start to feel sad, I remind myself that this is not about me.

It’s about them.

And their chance.

And that makes me happy.

Thank you, Donna for your guest post. 

Thank you for all that you do… for them.
