"How can you mend a broken heart?....How can you stop the rain from falling down?..."
The Bee Gees first asked this question in 1971. (I'm asking how can you START the rain falling down in California right now!)
I'm sure this question has been asked since the beginning of time. Once your heart "breaks" does it ever really mend?
"You know hearts were made to be broken..." From another Bee Gees tune.
As I get older it seems more and more things "break my heart". It's not necessarily a bad thing. Oh, in my younger days of course, my heart was "broken" because of an unrequited love.
Or over a job I wanted and didn't get.
Or experiencing a loved one or pet passing away.
It seems in your more self-absorbed teens and twenties your heart is broken for things about you.
But as you age, your heart starts breaking for everyone else.
My heart's always broken for animals in particular.
Whatever I have left in this world will go to charities supporting hunger,abuse,medical aid and adoption for furballs when I die.
In fact just about every penny I earn from my books right now go to animal rescues.
So I want to give a heartfelt thank you to each and every one of you who buy LottoLaff$ books :) I would like to let you know that you are also helping me to contribute to bettering these little critter's lives.
Here's one I made a contribution for yesterday at the AFRP, one of many rescue groups I give to.
If this little guy doesn't break your heart, I don't know what will. Sometimes you just have to wonder why things like this happen to such a beautiful little baby.
But I don't waste too much time these days thinking why.
Now I just wonder WHAT and HOW. What can I do to help. How can I help.
Sometimes it's good for your heart to break a little. Gets you moving. Gets you giving.
Thank You again,everyone!!
Hodi, is an incredibly sweet and playful 2-month-old kitten who was rescued from the streets of South Monterey County. He was suffering from a horrible untreated infection to both eyes, and they were painfully swollen and bulging from their sockets. He was immediately put on medication and pain killers to see if the swelling would go down. Unfortunately, his eyes did not improve and he had to undergo surgery to have both eyes removed to prevent them from rupturing. Currently in foster care, Hodi is feeling great and is learning to map out his environment by using his remaining senses. He's a snuggly, happy and playful little guy who can look forward to enjoying a long and wonderful life, despite being blind. He'll be available for adoption once he has healed. Donations towards his medical expenses are appreciated.
