I'll never bring about world peace. I won't single handedly save the
rain forest. I'm not a brain surgeon and I'll never transplant
an organ to save a life. I don't have the ear of a powerful
politician or world power. I can't end world hunger. I'm not a
celebrity, and God knows I'm not glamorous! I'm not looked up to by
millions around the world. Very few people even
recognize my name. I'll never win the Nobel prize. I"ll never save the
rain forest or end global warming. There are a lot of
things that I'll never do or become.
But today I placed a dog!
It was a small, scared, bundle of flesh and bones that was dropped off
in a shelter by unfeeling people that didn't care what
happened to it, but yet who were responsible for it even having
existence in the first place.
I found it a home.
It now has contentment and an abundance of love. A warm place to
sleep and plenty to eat. Two little boys have a warm
fuzzy new friend who will give them unquestioning devotion and teach
them about responsibility and love.
A wife and mother has a new spirit to nurture and care for.
A husband and a father has a companion to sit at his feet at the end
of a hard day of work and help him relax and enjoy life.
And a sense of security, that when he is gone all day at work, that
there is a protector and a guardian in his home to keep
watch over his family.
No, I'm not a rocket scientist. But today, I made a difference!
