My daughter regularly puts these rescue videos under my nose. Hurting dogs living on the streets, and one man’s commitment to save them. They are beautiful stories. Have a look: HopeforPaws.org.

When I viewed the newest one yesterday, I was filled with gratitude. The sacrifice. The offering. The impact. THANK YOU, Eldad. For the humanity you call us to. For the compassion you uncover. For the giving heart that expects nothing in return.

And thank YOU for your service. Whether you are volunteering at school or the local animal shelter, making a meal for a neighbor, or giving clothes to Goodwill, giving matters. It changes others, and it heals you.

If you are feeling lost, unneeded, or hopeless, reach out. It’s often the opposite of what you’re inclined to do; depression often leads to isolation, but it doesn’t help. If you can, reach into your heart pull out a part. Give it to someone else, someone less fortunate, and feel it heal back up. Stronger. Bigger. Better. That’s how it works.

Let us all be reminded to make time. To do what we can. To care.

Let us not be satisfied with just giving money. Money is not enough, money can be got, but they need your hearts to love them. So, spread your love everywhere you go.” – Mother Teresa
